Well, after much discussion of the pros and cons of staying up later so I could soothe those itchy fingers, we went to bed. I feared waking up without the same feeling, but it’s still there. So I got up earlier than normal, put Elias back to bed and had my breakfast. Any minute now, I imagine I’ll get up and have a shower and really start my day, but for now, I’m finishing up as much as I can on the computer because I may not come on any more today. I probably will, but just in case my art gets carried away with itself, I’ll act as if I won’t be coming back on.
As for the subject of this blog, I made a decision early this morning that I am ready to get rid of my Creating Sara dolls. A great many of you won’t have a clue as to what they are, but if you’ve been to my house, you’ve seen the original on a cake platter under a dome lid. She’s just a head of a doll, actually, but she, with her 27? piercings started me onto making dolls. Actually, I used pre-made dolls, but then proceeded to change them considerably. Some of them, I suppose, are downright scary. But they served a purpose when I was younger. I stopped making them and packed most of them up when I had Jenny. I decided that people may just think poorly of my mothering skills if I had the things displayed all over the place. I used to be certain that there was a market for them somewhere, and I’m still pretty sure of that, but I’ve decided that I need to be done with it. They’re just taking up room in my shed and I don’t need them anymore. The one doll that’s still in the house (other than Sara..she stays) I have already decided to send to my best friend back home. Other than that, they’re up for grabs. I have already made the post on MySpace asking if anyone wants any of them; the offer stands here as well. It’s time to move on.
You know, my dad once wrote an entire song about Creating Sara. I was really into it back then. Funny how life changes.
