Making my dreams come true!  I had a dream I made her, so........

She has a polymer clay face using Lisa Pavelka's foils on sleeping side.  A mirror face on the other.  Anyone is this goddess when looking into her face lol.  Sorry, I feel like a goof today.

Here she is stuffed and complete.  As I bead I thought of the different paths your dreams may take.  She has collected three dreams along the way.  Smiley

She is awake and ready to go bead shopping (of course)

Side view

I see mini beaded goddess dolls in the near future!!  Cool

Crochet, x-stitch, Ribbon embroidery, plastic canvas, beadwork, polymer clay, wire work, and now TATTING!!  Please help me learn to knit, then I might be complete.

 Mariah Tonelle--how honored to have such a great compliment on top of me being the first post of yours here on craftsters!  Welcome aboard!

 alwaysinmyroom--there is a reason I vision mini-dolls in the future!  She required an entire hank (which I never had happen before) in the turquoise color alone.  And every chance I had for about two weeks to complete!  It starts out with the size of face found or made.  I have mini-mirrors and faces so I see where I am going lol.  I could never make my money back on her spent in beads and time, so she is mine!!   Great excuse as always right??

 pennydreadful--YAY!!! TY TY TY!!

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

I make mini ones as well, but I sort of cheat by adding other embellishments like yarn and trinkets...I admire yours because it is basically ALL beads!!  I do not have the attention span for such a long project...yep--it is a keeper for sure!

I love the little faces...they are so serene....ahhhh...s omething about these little gems that makes one very happy! Cheesy
