I Can Swim Like A FISH!


Dear Diary,

I found this picture of a mermaid doll I made of my older sista (I have 3 sisters and we like to call each other Sista.) She was a champion swimmer! In high school she was on the swim team. She always had a great tan and was real cool. She held some state records in backstroke and maybe something else. (I'll have to call her so I can write it down for posterity or maybe prosperity.)

I haven't sent her the doll yet. I added some stuff to it because I was told she needed some embellishment. Actually, I like her better with the tail with out the do-hickeys hanging on it because I love the different fabric and needle work but I guess some people prefer bling.

Haven't finished my other two sista's dolls. One is an accountant and the other is a mechanical engineer. I couldn't figure out how to dress them. I guess if I make them thin with big boobs that is the important thing. There were some fabulous sea, pearl, doo-das at merchants square that I purchased today. I think I'll make them mermaids too. I really need to finish these dolls and move on. I thought about transfering their faces to these cloth dolls with blonde hair and shiny clothes that I bought on sale at Walgreen's but that would make my sistas look cheap and slutty which actually might be fun!

Another beautiful art doll! Your oldest sista (are we allowed to use real names on blog comments? I'm new to this...)anyway, she'll be so pleased. Cissy and Holly are doing fine at my house. And I'm thinking of something I can make for you! Yes, you might actually have performed a miracle: breaking through my artist's block!
Love you!

First, Lisa, thank you for sending Leslie my way! Wow! I love her! You were very kind and thoughtful to do so.

Now, I love your mermaid. As you know I love fish or fish-ish people or people-ish fish of any kind so I am especially in love with this doll and great picture of it! I would buy the picture! You captured the mystique of underwater color and a very inviting mermaid story! Love it!

Can't wait to see the rest of the sista's! Enjoy your weekend!
