Breaking in the Studio with a craft day! New Art!

Sat. was the first official craft day in the studio. 
My best friend Lydia came over and we worked in the studio with my daughter Abbi.
 Abbi got some new play dough and was crafting it up at the sewing desk.

 Lydia was over at the watch bench working on a book page wreath that is going to be gorgeous!

 And I was over at the work bench working on an art doll Santa Clause. See my mess.

 Stitching the hat band.

 Deciding on how to attach the feet. Also my hubby brought home a piece of Plexiglas from work that had gotten broken at the corner, and it was the perfect size for the center of my work bench to protect the pages underneath. I also slid a couple of old family pics of my dad underneath.

 The body of the art doll is a couple of old playing blocks altered with paint and old paper. 

 Abbi's drawing of Lydia, me, and herself.

 Attached the parts.

 And finished up.

He's a shelf sitter.
Sunday I made some jewelry but I'll share that tomorrow. :)
Have a happy day!
