Sorry I've been away for the last 2 weeks, life I've been somehow really busy and I failed to publish my weekly inspiration.
Since I've been using most of my none "day job" time working on doll I will like to present you the work of a doll artist I admire a lot. Her doll have such personalities the really that telling a story factor I always come back to. They are intricate characters from the whimsical and fantasy worlds. I found her head piece to always be a fascinating part of the character. Once again I wish there was a book that will come with each of them to tell me their story although it is part of the fun to imagine their life. You can find more about Alexandra's dolls and other creation on her official website or you can find her on Facebook. Her work have been publish in many magazine and traveled the world.
Un éventail de mes dernières création, dans l’ordre et le désordre
I realized I haven't share much of my latest creation here so here you go.
Novembre est a nouveau parmi nous, chaque année le temps passe de plus en plus vite.... Cette année Novembre débute avec une excellente nouvelle! Mes peluches sont désormais en vente à la boutique Kitsch 'n Sweel sur le Boulevard St-Laurent. Une boutique qui met à l'honneur le rétro, la taxidermie, l'art de vivre et curiosité. Je fait parti de la section créateurs locaux et j'en suis très fière! Passez y faire un tour, Noël approche et vous y trouverai un cadeau unique.

I am part of the handmade local creators sections which I'm very proud of. Go have a look Christmas is coming sooner then later and you'll be buying a one of kind friend. :)
I went to a thrift store las week and found a lovely blue tweed jacket and knew I had to do a bird with it, well I could do plenty actually but still here the first one. I like him a lot with is little wood beak and long legs. I added some decorating lace that I painted over. All the time I was making him I had that song from Sara Bareilles in mind. If you don't know it you should look it up it's good. It talk about letting go here a link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMba8vsep9I
She is one of my favourite singer, she can be profound but also funny and quirky. On that note I got to pack my bag to go visit a friend and friday I'll be going on a little girl road trip with another friend, looking forward to get out of town a bit.
