~ Charity Auctions ~
Silk Velvet "Juliet" Ensemble
Tsunami Flood Relief for Asia ~ September 2008
Part of a multi-artist collaborative auction sponsored by Laurie Lenz ~ Created for Ellowyne Wilde
(These are the only 2 photos I took for a COA, since the outfit was modeled by another repainted doll for the actual charity auction.)
~ Contest Entries ~
Contest: Ashton Drake's 2010 "Spring Has Sprung" for 16" Delilah Noir
(Did not place an award, but was fun to make in celebration of Spring)
Contest: Ashton Drake's "Naughty or Nice" for 16" Delilah Noir
(Holiday theme for Christmas 2009)
Awarded 2nd place, best in the "Nice" category
(collaboration with my daughter Wendy who repainted the doll)
In pristine white with feathered hair, a 'Swan' I am with graceful flair.
A New Year's Ball, Tchaikovsky's strain, a ballet dream, romantic vein;
I may not dance as light as air, nor twirl, entranced, without a care;
but I can show the best in me, of innocence, borne gracefully.

~ Miscellaneous ~
(My first combined collaboration with my daughter Wendy, who knit the hat, stole, and muff, and repainted the doll face.)
Blue ice and bubblegum, unicorn tales.
Bright silver jingle bells, pink fingernails.
Lace stockings, go-go boots, blue ribbons fair.
Cold winter rosy cheeks, snow in the air.
Pert little princesses, dreams that come true.
Winter time fantasies, teenage milieu.
