Variety is the Spice of MY life!

One of the things I adore about being a designer is the variety in my life. I love how I can be making a mother of the bride outfit one day and the next day, grappling with thousands of diamantes on a dance costume. Well this week was a week of a first of a kind (if you get me meaning)

I was asked by a super nice etsian to create something "in my signature style" for a doll! I have to say making something in minature is a bit of a challenge for me , its as if my brain is used to one dimension of spacial awareness and sizing! I gave it a lash as I firmly believe challenges are there to push the boundries as a designer and sometimes the results are surprising.

I tried to keep it very whimsical and romantic. ;)
