Spotlight on Boolah Baguette

Copyright Erin Weiss [Boolah Baguette]
    Last week on Etsy I came across the sweet doll work of Erin Weiss. Erin's doll label is Boolah Baguette. I asked her where that name came from, she told me it was the full name she gave to her first doll when she was a little girl. And as luck would have it, Erin still has that doll around.

    The thing that got my notice of Boolah Baguette was the amount of detail that went into the doll faces. I rather like the added layers of fabric which give the dolls character.

Friday Wind Down

    Seems like half of the Victorian population has a virus of some sort this month. I am certainly not the exception this week, having been hit by a virus, right along with the rest of my family.
    So what can you do when you're sick? Not a whole lot, except sleep [for those who can], watch Pride & Prejudice, find joy in the fact that The Doctor found a way save Gallifrey and fantasise about a tropical islands.
    I wanted to draw this week, but until today I hadn't been able to do anything proper. Not only did the virus zap my energy it also managed to take a lot of my creative mojo [jerk virus].
    Hoping for better things this weekend. We all need a good one.

    By the way, did you know Torchwood is an anagram for Doctor Who? Well, there you go.
