"Vintage Circus SIAMESE TWINS Paper Doll"
This past week I've been hard at work completing custom orders, but I did list a new paper doll in my Etsy shop! It's the latest in my "Vintage Circus" series, and it is a bit quirky. ;) I've seen other twin paper dolls, but they seemed to have a slightly depressed facial expression - perhaps, because it's not always fun being attached to your sibling? In my world however, these girls are content and accepting of the life they have, and quite happy really. They've also mastered playing the violin together (why not?)! My "Vintage Circus" has become populated with all manner of characters now, so I think I will focus on adding to my "Nautical Journey" series next. I was considering a Neptune merman of sorts, a pinup sailor girl, or a pirate beauty...any thoughts or suggestions?
Dave and I also got around to cleaning up the woodworking area in the garage this week...and...I set up my brand new power tool toy! A heavy duty scroll saw, isn't it a beauty? I never thought I would fall in love with power tools, but boy, I sure have! It all began with a hand held jigsaw, then you borrow your friend's band saw, and next thing you know - you're onto the heavy duty stuff! This guy cost a pretty penny, but I see it as an investment in my business, and I expect it to last a lifetime. With a scroll saw, you can make much more intricate cuts in wood, it's really ideal for artistic wood crafting. I have so many ideas, my head might explode! I hope to start playing with it next week...;)
