Paper Dolls

I"ve been busy, busy getting ready for some art shows. Now I've never done a show ecept for  gallery shows, so I don't quite know what to expect. I've been making paper dolls and bookmarks for a craft fair next week. I need lots of inexpensive goodies for this show and lots of kid stuff. I will also be doing a hands-on collage demo during this show which will mostly be kids and their moms. Lots of fun!
I was a major paper doll fan as a kid. I had Barbie of course, but also, Samantha from Bewitched, Ellie May from The Beverly Hillbilliies, That Girl and Haley Mills, just to name a few. I could spend hours cutting out the clothes and then designing  and coloring my own to cut out. I suppose this is where it all began with me and my paper obsession. It was good training!
