Jenny and I exchanged info and a few days after the show I contacted her to see if I could come by for a visit before I went back to Canada. We welcomed me with her sweet open arms into her home and her private studio!! OMG.......... I was lost for words!!!!
I LOVE Jenny and her Over the top work.. Here is a small sample of what I had the honor to view with my very own eyes!!!
Thanks you sooooo much jenny for giving me the privilege to see your beautiful art work up close and personal:) These images and many others will be forever etched in my mind:)

I have just return from spending 3 wonderful week in Beautiful San Francisco!!! What an amazing place!! The art in this city is mind blowing, the graffiti alone is some thing like I have never experienced any where else. I was so lucky to spend 3 days the the talented and sweet Sheir Debow. We made dolls, and shopped, and had a lovely and Delicious dinner and her ever so talented chef husbands Terry's Bistro called Fume Bistro and bar in Napa Valley.....do your self a huge favor and GO there.
This is one of the dolls I made while playing with Sheri Debow in Napa Valley Ca. We each made four dolls some the other will complete and some we will finish ourselves but when they are all done, they will be united and hopefully published as a collaboration:)
Sheri's work is amazing and it was purely my pleasure to spend 3 days with her and make dolls together!!! Love you Sheri:) And Thank you SOOOOO much for the wonderful experience that I will NEVER forget and can never thank her enough for her open arms and generous hospitality!!!
This is one of the doll I made at Sheri's. She is nameless as of now and not quite finished but does have a big sister at Sheri's house and she is asking when she will see her again......soon little one, I promise!!
I had the best time I have had in a very long time but now it is time to get back to work!!
Will post more amazing pictures later. We took over 1000 photos so it may take me some time to sort through them!! LOL
I just realized that my Jennybird pictures are in my other computer so I will post them tomorrow:) AMAZING so PLEASE come back and have a boo!!

They are both amazing doll makers and I am so lucky to be part of such this team:)
This is Virginia, Ginny for short, she will be making her way to see Bari first in Arizona, then in one months time off to see Deena in Michigan then back to me a finished doll!! I can't wait for her return so I can see what she has become!!
This is Wynn, I just love her already:) The ever so talented Deena will be working on Wynn first. There was some questions as to the gender of Wynn but I think SHE is a sweet soul just waiting to shine through!! But......who know until the end when Wynn returns home to the hands of Bari.....She is going to Deena first so by the time she/her gets to me things could change!! That is one of the things that make this wonderful project so much fun!!! I am so honored to be part of the project again this year!!! The first doll I will get is from Deena, now this is going to be somewhat of a challenge for me as I have never added the head to an already made body!! and an amazing body too I might add!! I am excited about this!! but a little nervous too...... I have so good ideas for this doll as I am sure Bari does too and it will be really interesting to see how she finishes:)
This project is soooo amazing!! Last year was the first year ADO did this project and this year it is bigger!! PLEASE follow the ADO blog to keep track of all the teams that are participating...
You can follow all the teams dolls there and see the transformation of alot of amazing dolls!!! Please, if you are not already, become a follower of ADO's blog :)
Stay tuned for what happens to these amazing dolls!!

Well the opening night of our gallery show went off without a hitch!! We named the show "The Light In The Dark" seemed fitting for all of our work:) The paintings you see in the gallery were done by two of my co-workers, Deb and Ryan. We figure we had 75 to 100 people through the gallery with in an hour!! We were happy with that considering the short time we had to put the show together...( about a week, with Christmas and all) The stands for the dolls we made two day before the show!!) I tried to rent some but that wasn't happening. It all worked out pretty good though and the feed back from the guests was AWESOME!! No sales that night but lots of inquiries and some people said they were going to have to decide which one they wanted. I also had a few people asking about commission work so hopefully I will hear from them and get some work:) We gathered next door at a cool lounge next door to the gallery for some wonderful hors D'oeuvres (?) and some mingling. All in all it was a really nice evening and fun was had by all!!
Thanks soooo mcuh for all your well wishes and support, it means alot to me:)
