Well folks back home safe and sound.  Missed you all of course!!!!  Was good to get home, go thru the mail and catch up on the news.  Russ sent out the magazines so hope you received OK and had a relaxing time reading and being inspired!  Then wishing you had more time to create!


Helen happened to wander into a shop earlier in the month and ended up in a workshop with Merle Tait.  Merle certainly has an unusual perspective on how we can be more free with our creating but Helen said by the end of the workshop she really started to loosen up and create with a lot more freedom.  You may like to look at Merle's site -  http://www.artofinsight.com.au/ 






Many of you may follow the work of artist Kat O'Sullivan who creates fun upcycled sweaters and clothing.  She has an obsession with color which becomes very obvious when you see what she has done to her cottage that was built in the 1840's.  Check it out if you are interested at     http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2014/11/artist-kat-o-sullivan-transforms-a-dull-shack-into-a-psychedelic-rainbow-house/?src=footer   
This will lead you to her Etsy store as well if you would like to see the work she produces.  Fun, Fun, Fun!!!!!






You should have recd your Art Doll 1/4ly Winter 2015.  More magazines now on the way!







I didn't get to see it myself but someone was telling me about a village on Shikoku - the island I visited. When residents depart they are replaced by a life size doll!  Found it on the net .........    http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2014/05/valley-of-dolls/








Susie McMahon would be pleased with the article featuring her work in the latest 
Dolls, Bears and Collectibles.






Fascinated by faces!  This is a collage by an English artist Tom Deininger - he creates large-scale collages from found objects scavenged from landfills, yard sales and donated by friends and acquaintances.
