the latest report on...
which she prefers to think of as...
..a wayfaring weaving through shimmering portals of cosmic potentiality...
Ok. The Dollmaker was helplessly led astray by
or- Belt Skirts!
Belts... which are also sort of Skirts...
created by refurbishing Pants...
or, as in this case...
...it became more and more "distracting"...
as she added colorful patterned fabrics and trims,
pockets, utility rings, chains, coin purses, spiral tendrils- and OMG!
The whole idea of costume Belt-Skirts was suddenly Irresistible! Intergalactical! Droll !
Heavens to Lightning! Volcano Goddess Mind Flash!
a thousand and one fantastical Characters marching off-road through the Lands of Myth and Imagination
carrying their little lights along the winding passages of Time and Space...
all wearing Belt-skirts!
Woodland Characters, Sea and River Nymphs, Pixies, Elves, Faerie Queens! Cos-players!
A Vision for
makes sense, as a natural extension
of the Dollmaker's usual
Streaming Futuristic "Intergalactic Wear" for Humans
in costume who leave this Time-Space Continuum regularly
however, is just not really the same as "Dolls", at all.
what these Beltskirts are is:
but that name is taken... lol
Some real lacy Beltskirts
as Bridal Attire...
or could even work as...
dare the Dollmaker suggest... Lingerie!
So, this is big. The Dollmaker may have another title soon:
Intergalactic Fantasy Belt-maker!
Beltskirt Styles... so far...
Ok, there's the lengthy-and-windblown tendril-streaked "Streamer" Style,
the athletic baby-doll pixie razzle-dazzle or "Girly" Style,
the "Sometimes Steampunk" Blue-Jeans Style...
the "Honeymoon on Neptune" formerly known as "The Accidental Bride"
and beyond that, it's just "Uncharted Waters", folks.
...for people who bridge Worlds.
so, in the month of May, lots of Beltskirts got made!
And even a few Doll Constructions too!
True! Two Goofy Tree Peeple Doll Constructions
attended and joked around the whole time with the guy in the bathing suit at
Sage advice from "the Lucky Pancake"...
"Peace will reign on Earth when Humans Imitate Rocks."
It has also been discovered that the Raunchiest Pancakes in the Known World
can yet bring out the "pet-lover" in certain people
...and Sensitive Rock Critters found Joy.
was filled with Revelation and Song... sort of.
the revelation was... the genre known as... EDM...
And the Dollmaker was not the only one for whom EDM was a Revelation this month
it would seem...
"Hysterical" became "Historical" as
TRF and EDM
smashed together for one Ravingly Mad Fleeting Moment in Time...
and That is all the Dollmaker will say about THAT!
uh-oh. It begins...
Where there's food - someone will show up to eat it.
The Tomato Hornworm.
Such a delightful little pest!
A work of Art, really...
a Storybook Character, really.
ah... so.... how could the Dollmaker mindfully kill a character straight out of
Alice in Wonderland!?
Deciding the Fate of the proverbial "Hookah-smoking Caterpillars"
Unlike Some caterpillars, the Hornworm can be relocated.
Besides tomatoes, these critters will also eat the Texas Vitex leaves (a tree), the lantern plant (a weed), and Datura
as Mr. Gorge-ous is doing here- eating a hallucinogenic weed, preparing for flight. obviously.
But one day this guy just disappeared. The Dollmaker looked and looked, and finally found him-
They go through metamorphosis buried in the dirt.
Meanwhile, the mysterious, aggressive, (now up to the roof of the house)
Volunteer Tomato Plants
are caterpillar-free and thriving!
Rocking Smithville and Beyond...
The Dollmaker has created a new Facebook Group called
dedicated to Painting, Hiding and Finding Rocks!
Join in the Fun!
How? Just Paint a Rock! And then go and hide it!
Here's how it started in Smithville:
This is a Rock which looks like the head of some kind of alligator or dragon!
Chief Librarian, Miss Judy, found this rock and gave it to the Dollmaker to Paint:
The Dollmaker painted the Rock and gave it to Librarian Dylan
to Hide in Miss Judy's office.
He put it way up on a top shelf... heehee
What a surprise she got when she spotted it! Yay!
This Owl Rock was
and Then Hidden
in a Tree
in a State Park
during a Camping Trip!!
Just like the proverbial "Message in a Bottle" (providing contact information)
Rockers ("Let's Rock" Group members)
are writing these Messages on the back of each Painted Rock they hide:
"Keep or Re-Hide"
(a picture) to
This little boy found a Rock on his Birthday!
So, the REAL FUN part
is when someone finds your Rock and
posts that they found it!
<<<<<< This amazing kid here
has to be the Poster Boy for
"Why we do it!"
Joy is Inspiring!
Peggy (a member of the "Let's Rock" group)
hid her Painted Rocks... this one was found and now amuses a Pet Bird!
So join in the Fun, folks!

one very early Mother's Day morning
the Dollmaker dropped in to say hello to
a few of her old buddies at
where she also got a new Hat (the blue one)
but the best part of Mother's Day Weekend was spending it with
Darling Daughter Shannon!
Hope all you Moms out there had a great Mother's Day too!
