• Welcome to My Creative Year!

    Thanks so much for coming to see what I've been up to. I'm in the midst of a self-challenge to *create* for a year straight. I needed something to fill a weird void I was feeling, and exploring different styles of art and creativity seems to fit the bill! So, Welcome! I'm glad you've come for a visit...
  • Heartfelt Thanks

    I don't always have a chance to thank everyone who leaves such lovely comments on my projects. I just want to express my appreciation for your encouragement and compliments on my creative journey. You are all greatly appreciated!

  • Though Shalt Not Steal

Dammit

When things aren’t going as well as you’d wished,

And you just want to scream and shout.

Here’s a little Dammit Doll you just can’t live without!

Simply grab it by its legs, and find somewhere to slam it.

And as you beat the livin’ stuffin’ out of it, yell

DAMMIT!  DAMMIT!  DAMMIT!

A friend asked me for a “Dammit Doll” for Christmas.  I had never heard of one of these before – but I love the idea!  If I had any stress in my life, I’d make one for myself.  But as it is, it would just gather dust on the shelf!  🙂  So I looked it up online, and saw some cute pictures.  This is my intrepretation.  I embroidered one of Jenny Hart’s cute little images for the face (a Mexican skull design), and used some pink butterfly flannel for the body.  I like it.  I think it’s cute.  🙂
