Teaching the Texas Four-Step
Versatile little buggers...
The Dollmaker and Friends
and a Billion Bluebonnets
all enjoyed the breezy warmth of an April Saturday...
on the road to
Best of Show:
Tintype Fork Folk
who succeeded in coming out of her winter funk and thereafter started making dolls again.
and not a moment too soon...
Yes, There are some Wee Peeple Dolls at
Thanks to the US Postal Service and
Lisa Durham, Doll Courier
Since the Dollmaker is not always there in person...
Lisa receives shipments of Wee Dolls at her home in Waxahachie...
She then happily delivers the Wee Dolls
to ye olde solde Doll Shoppe
on Saturday mornings
(Shoppe #158 in the Pecan Grove)
at Scarborough Faire
(the Renaissance Festival)
Now Known As:
This passel of baby
came in last week!
Elegant Bunnies made their debut on Easter weekend
And by next weekend this guy will be ready...
The largest Tree Peeple Character constructed in three years...
(around two feet tall)
So, in answer to the oft-unspoken question:
"Are the Wee Peeple still at Scarborough Faire the Renaissance Festival?"
There are SOME Wee Peeple Doll Constructions
at Scarborough Faire the Renaissance Festival.
They shall be found residing amongst the most unusual and
Maps, Talismans, and Rings in that Faire Kingdom...
ThoughtForms now have Fork ARMS
Yes, formerly only characterized by dangling tags, trinkets, beads, baubles,
watches, necklaces, belts, small plastic animals and key rings,
Now ThoughtForms have Arms.
This ThoughtForm is called:
"You Hold the Key"
See the little Forkie Arms.
They even have fingers and can hold things!
A further Personification.
Random objects, such as Timepieces, which have served as Rudimentary Heads
have lately become more... shall we say...
Masked, Shamanic, Horned and vaguely Plague-Doctoresque
with the promise of Cow-Skull and Raven-Beak
in some kind of totemic alignment...
Embodied Travelers wandering through
Scarborough Faire the Renaissance Festival
will soon be able to see these new ones.
A renewed association with an old Dollmaking Apprentice
led to an agreement to collaborate on a few new Dollmaking Projects...
Remember Joel? And the Wee Men?
Well, now, Joel, a resourceful fellow, discovered a new material
with Dollmaking applications:
Thermoplastics! Starting with Doll Masks
this is going to get pretty exciting.
Check out the Worbla Website at:
Soul Nourishment Time
was taken at Lake Whitney
which led to... the Dollmaker discovering this
Ok, it's not the most perfect specimen in the world,
but it's the first big guy the Dollmaker has found in over ten years!
Two weeks later:
The Dollmaker was out in the spring sunshine just digging up the grass
and there was this smooth rock in the dirt:
The Rune for Wholeness
(SOWULO, meaning SUN or THE LIFE FORCE)
A Rune lovingly etched on a river stone for the Dollmaker long ago
by Woodcarver Paul, who used Runes every day.
Burned, bulldozed, buried, and accidentally found again!
Answers are never far
from where you really are.
The Dollmaker Gives Thanks
for random and unexpected Clues to the Meaning of Life in the dirt.
It is now Spring (and sometimes already feels like summer) in
...where ROSES have been blooming like Never before...
Let-us just say
t'was a rapturous day...
The Day the Dollmaker
for the first time ever, harvested from her own garden
And speaking of Eating...
...in Small Town News... the Dollmaker enjoyed
Samplings of savory Soups
expertly made by Participating Local Restaurants... OMG!
for the EMPTY BOWL PROJECT of Smithville
Besides a delightful variety of Gourmet Soups...
...included in the price of Admission for this Charity Event
was the entitlement to one uniquely crafted SOUP BOWL!
The Dollmaker beheld Tables! Crammed together on folding tables...
were Hundreds of colorful Soup Bowls made by school children!
After careening around the tables a few times, inspecting, selecting, exchanging....
the Dollmaker decided upon this Special Bowl at...
Feeding People is an awesome thing to do.
...exploring the mysteries of feeling really good...
Thanks everyone, for your amazing support, kind words and wishes of karmic retribution for the perpetrators
who recently Hacked the Dollmaker's AOL Mail Controls,
and for your responses to the subsequent seemingly endless testing
that was necessary in order to evolve to a (hopefully) safer internet connection.
