What I'm doing with my life:
I'm a doll artist most of the time and a part time baker on the weekends. Sometimes I play games and others I go to the movies. For spare change, I sell my children. well, actually I'm not a fan of children, so I guess I just sell the stuff I make, stuff I find at the thrift store and books I've bought from the used bookstore that used to be my home. :P On the very rare occasion, I'll write something. On less rare occasions I'll read something obsessively. that's all.
*I want to be able to support myself full-time with my art.
*I want to Thru-Hike the Appalachian Trail for my fortieth birthday.
*I want to make a stop motion animation movie with creatures and music and goodness and then enter it into a short film catagory at a film fest.
*I want to write a book of illustrated short stories.
*I want full sleeves!

Turks! what's the cat doing? where is my pen? did I leave something in the oven? dude! how did I manage to spend 12 hours in Wutai?) ::sigh:: speculations about what really lives under my bed and in my closet and how I'm going to find the right sacrifice to appease them. kidding. really. (kinda) you know, there quite a few shades of black. some of them even have distinctly different hues. doll designs. patterns for doll designs. ball joints and how to finangle an articulated mermaid tail. With teeth. a mermaid with teeth! sharp pointy teeth! and tentacles! how come nobody's made a mer-squid? a ball-jointed articulated mer-squid! With sharp pointy teeth! I THINK THAT WOULD BE THE COOLEST THING EVER. and how do you manage equine anatomy when the damn thing has eight legs? poly
I'm really good at:
Being a hostess, crafting weird creatures, reading, writing, 'rithmaticing, skipping, inane chatter, amusing myself, being amused, plotting world domination, attacking the kitten, being attacked by the Evil Kitten of Dooom!!, being obstinate, annoying my roomate, annoying my boyfriend, annoying my boss, sculpting, picking out colors, sitting on my ass, confusion, hugs, and umm... *ahem* yeah, that too. and stuff...
I read a lot of books by:
Charles DeLint, Roald Dahl, Kelly Link, China Meiville, Sherri Tepper, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Tanith Lee, Ray Bradbury, Octavia Butler

Welcome to SparkMadison. Your dolls are great and not scarey like the supposedly "cute" ones from my childhood. I try to post on the SparkMadison daily check in Forums a couple times a week. Feels supportive to have the local pals on my side.
