Yes, that Last Weekend at the Festival sure was a doozy.

(as you recall, a Three-Day Extravaganza celebrating Thanksgiving, Christmas and

It's-NOW-OK-to-start-Shopping-for-Christmas Day)


Indeed, no doubt

a plot to extract mind-bending enthusiasm from Compressed Celebration.



Yes, good vibes were definitely being emanated...

..introducing the Dollmaker's latest Steampunk Invention:


the "Positive Energy Emanator"


tested on these people here.... 



then again, a very pure Positive Energy was Emanated

through Friendly Trade Agreements with other Fiber Artists...





 So... a strange time was had by all and

Goodbye for now...






And onwards... deep into dark








...upon a new Adventure...

did enter a fun Christmas Show!


Sponsored by the East Austin Handmade Arts Market...



What a sweet little venue this was.

Held at Soma Vida... a Yoga Studio in East Austin!




The Dollmaker wishes to thank her good buddies: the Johns

who not only helped the Dollmaker loading in and out,  but were of invaluable assistance to

the "Free Beer" Folks...

and Thank you to

the Soul-cool Austin crowd

who showed up and bought dolls! the weather shifted from the 80's on Saturday

to the 40's on Sunday...

ah yes...












Seeing friends,  buying gifts and listening to great live music...











hmmm, the Dollmaker thought....

"hey... anyone can do this..."

(uh-oh) she added what she considered to be

pertinent Text


photos of the Wee Peeple Dolls... and came up with:  























Wee Meemes could appear on postcards, calendars, and even

as children's book illustrations...











so... Last month it was:

Sculptural Cat Paintings...  a feline phenomena!


This month it's a

Sculptural Dog Painting! (a Corgi phenomena.)



 Ms. Karma, Muse for a Corgi-loving Dollmaker.







and lastly, the Dollmaker got to spend Christmas with darling daughter Shannon

who is still recovering from a back injury. Heal well, Shannon.



are a cross between a crocodile and a banana,

in case the reader did not know that.

The Dollmaker has wanted one for years! This Christmas, after she unwrapped THREE Croconanas...

all the rest of the Croconanas in the household started showing up...

















Ours is not the task of fixing

the entire world all at once,

 but of stretching out to mend

the part of the world
that is within our reach.

Any small, calm thing
that one soul can do

 to help another soul,

 to assist some portion

of this poor suffering world,

will help immensely.

Soul on Deck

My friends, do not lose heart.


We were made for these times.


When a great ship is in harbor and moored, it is safe,
there can be no doubt.

But that is not
what great ships are built for.

-Clarissa Pinkola Estes









I have heard from so many recently

who are deeply and properly bewildered.

They are concerned about the state of affairs

 in our world now.

Ours is a time of almost daily astonishment

and often righteous rage over the latest degradations

of what matters most to civilized, visionary people.


Regarding awakened souls,

there have never been more able vessels in the waters

than there are right now across the world.

And they are fully provisioned

and able to signal one another as never before

in the history of humankind.



Look out over the prow;

 there are millions of boats of righteous souls

on the waters with you.

Even though your veneers may shiver

from every wave in this stormy roil,

I assure you that the long timbers composing your prow and rudder come from a greater forest.

That long-grained lumber is known to withstand storms, to hold together, to hold its own, and to advance, regardless.

-Clarissa Pinkola Estes
