Tree Sprite



Dear Diary,

My momma sent me the Art Doll Quarterly magazine that this doll was in because I can't find mine. I know it is here somewhere but where? I made this doll to send in to Somerset Studio's Green Challenge but they sent it on to Art Doll Quarterly and published it in the show and tell section.

My Sock Monkey Mermaid (I'll post a picture of it another day) was published in the same issue! I had entered it in the sock doll challenge. When I got the magazine in the mail and saw the dolls I just about fainted. I saw the monkey first and then I was flipping through and found the Tree Sprite. I got right on the phone and called my momma! Then I called everyone else I could think of! What a high that was.

The Tree Sprint took a long time. I thought I was through with it several times. Judy , (my friend I met through the antique mall that is so creative, teaches classes, and just gets published all the time) gave me some good advise. She suggested I add allot of embellishments. So I did.

Holy moly Lisa! I love it! And great big huge fat congratulations on your publications. I've only experienced it once and I still get a tickly tummy thinking about it. So, I am excited for you and you should be so proud! You are so multi-talented and I just adore the Sprite.

Lisa,
How cool is that!

I love you Tree Sprite...it looks like it belongs in a fariy tale.

CONGRATULATIONS!

I think Tree Sprite looks like she belongs in a fairy tale, too. BUT more importantly, I think she belongs with me. And I'm willing to duke it out with Lucy for her!!!
