tyvek stuff

Well I couldn't stop with just one brooch. Had to play some more and what a mess I stirred up in my studio!!! Here are all of the brooches that I've made starting with painted and shrunk Tyvek. Now to take it into the realm of doll making. LOL

brooch made for Fiber Arts Club

Here is the brooch that I hurriedly made for demoing painted Tyvek (postal service mailer envelopes) and toilet paper tubes. It is embellished with glass glitter and micro-beads. The others had a ball shrinking the tyvek and creating.

Finally I'm Connected

I am new to this blogging thing and have spent the day trying to figure out how to add my two cents. I finally called Susan and she gave me the information I needed to get started. I'm sorry Rose, I didn't read the email thoroughly enough or I could have saved myself a lot time.
Anyway, I wanted to say that I am very happy with our new club house. Thanks Rose, you sure have been working hard at this. It is such a bright and cheery place for us to have fun with our dolls. I am looking forward to our doll round robin. I also wanted to say what a nice friendly group of women. You all have so much to contribute. Hope we all have a nice holiday season and will see you next year, if we don't see each other before then.

New Beginnings

I had so much fun at our December meeting. The new location is perfect and Linda is very gracious to let us meet in her cafe. I look forward to a great new year and our first round robin, here comes the torsos! Thank you all for the warm friendships and the inspirations.
Beadily yours
Susan E Feldkamp

Recap of December 9th Doll Club Meeting

Okay, here goes this is how I remember the meeting! We all had fun and six of us were in attendance
We all shared, Mary was working on doll ornaments, Susan, on a beautiful necklace and a pink beaded doll for one of her other groups, I love Susan's beaded dolls they feel so nice to hold. Deborah is working on a doll from Patti Culea pattern and doing a great job, Cynthia brought in some wonderful books that she found at the half price bookstore. I can hardly wait to go and check that bookstore out. It's on Southern by Fiesta Mall. Cynthia is also making some dolls and patterns so she can teach at JoAnn Fabrics. Yvonne made two very darling dolls for her grandchildren. Yvonne also shared with us all the round robins she has done along with the wonderful journals that go along with each doll. Oh almost forgot to mention Yvonne jackets they were beautiful. I showed everyone my new line of dolls The Fabulous Floozies, I am having so much fun making them. They make me laugh every time I get one finished and figure out what she is saying. Its the kind of stuff I would love to say but never would because of that Catholic Italian background. My dad is probably turning over in his grave. LOL
I know there is alot more that we discussed but I will let you girls fill in the gaps for me I need to sew!

Next meeting January 13, 2010, Bring a Torso for our Round Robin and a Journal. Theme is New Beginnings!


Hi everyone, Just posting this picture of my two baby dolls for my sister's toddler grand children. ;-))

Love the new location

Hi everyone! I had a great time at the meeting last night and I just love our new location. Linda is a hoot and it is so cool that we are on our way to our very own chair! I am excited about our round robin and I am already thinking about the journal for my doll. So many great and fun things on the horizon with this group!
