rhonda's originals on etsy is one of my most favorite places to shop! rhonda's images are just the right amount of victorian gothic to appeal to me and to people that purchase my creations, from these images.....for those of us who are computer challenged, purchasing these images frees us up to create, to cut and paste, to enter a world of whimsy!!

Making cards and little notes!

making cards and little notes from scrapbooking papers is such fun!! they take on a life of their own as you cut and glue....even the smallest scraps can be used in a collage....for holidays, gift enclosures, whatever strikes your fancy.......

Calming Effects

Working with creative paperclay to create a doll, or poppet, has had such a calming effect for me in the last few weeks...My brother, as i just wrote this we had an earthquake, ok, everything is ok...anyway, my brother has stage 4 melanoma and has been fighting the cancer for about a year now...At each stage of this the latest news can bring extreme joy or shock and disbelief....i cannot fathom his strength and optimism......while our family is in this waiting game, staying creative and exploring the sculpting of the faces of my dolls brings a strange calm...i feel the personality of the each doll come forth...with the crazy long arms or the addition of a piece of an antique fabric..i know it is a result of being in control when everything around us is absolutely crazy....here my brother is having brain surgery at this minute, and there is an earthquake......god help...............
