I have always tried to make wooden dolls, being inspired by Japanese Kokeshi Dolls, but I could never get the face just right. Well, below are the wooden heads, which I am happy to say that I like...finally!
And, I even added some yarn hair to one, experimenting with texture.
Now, if I can only create the RIGHT body, I can start making some ornaments!
I just got home. Surprisingly, it's a rainy day here in southern California. It rarely rains here. My husband and I thought it was a delightful change from the constant sunny weather we normally get. :)
Anyway, as I drove in the parking lot, I discovered one of my favorite stuffies ever drowning in a wet, dirty, and very, very, very sad puddle. I think a couple cars ran him over, as well. He must have popped out of my car. He was the only decoration I have in my car, and I can't believe I didn't notice his absence.
I once had the cutest crush baby sea turtle from my sister, but he also escaped. Hm...I guess that means: no more cute things in my car! Anyway, I thought I would get one last picture of him before he goes in the trash...I mean stuffy heaven. :)
