I regret to say that I do not have as much time for the free and creative work as it really should be.
Especially the drawing and free dollsewing is often on the line. My intention was to draw/sketch every day and to regularly and tweak new patterns for dolls and their clothes.
Sometimes I achieve to do so for a short time only to get back to having no time for nothing shortly after. There are so many other small everyday things and administrative stuff to work on instead of having time to follow the creative flow. I then wish I would have more time an opportunities to follow my ideas more freely in everyday life. Unfortunately, the time is not always available in addition to bein self-employed, taking care of two small children and household stuff. I notice, I must have a solid framework (as absurd as that sounds) for free and creative work and then learn to simply take the time for things like free work and creativity.
Doll Sew Along 2017
So I’m glad if I find an opportunity and occasion to follow these creative ideas I have in my head urging to come to paper and life soon.
Some time ago I wrote on my Instagram about how I am already looking forward to the annual doll-make-along hosted by naturkinder and Mariengold, which will take place again in July this year.
Last year, unfortunately, I could not participate – but the year before that I have made the 27” doll “Sima” and it was so enjoyable (-> more on it here).
That i why I am looking forward to participate again this year!
Of course I already have a thousand ideas for dolls in my head again, that I finally want to sew.
One of them has been around for a long time, … let’s see if she will make it. ;)
Btw – everyone’s invited to participate regardless of ones dollmaking experience!
