On the drawing board


Here is a peek at April - yes, that's her name. I have been working on a calendar for quite awhile now and am almost finished. The idea was sparked by the love of paperdolls both of my children (and I!) have. We have made our own, played with old ones of mine, cut out new ones given as birthday presents and well, the idea of dressing in wallpaper scraps from the stash I bought from applehead.typepad.com earlier this year started it all in motion. But where does the time go?
April is splashing in the rain and well, the last month (March) is still on the drawing board waiting to be finished. December 1 they should be ready to go!

The word for the day is ... rise ... as in rise above the drivel, making a good loaf of bread and get up and go!

Well, I've decided that I'd like to have a life-size version of that dress/coat.
