Pantomime Joy

I made this doll probably about 4 months ago. Her name "came" to me immediately! But her "story" is a whole different....er....story. I had been playing a board game with my children and one of the parts of the game was to act out being "happy". Well, we didn't quite get it....as we watched my youngest child "act" out happy, words that began to be shouted out were "crazy", "strange" and "luny"!!! LOL



At the end of the charade we were all laughing hysterically! That's when the idea of the doll came to me.

Pantomime Joy is 15" tall. She is sculpted from paper clay and covered with fabric. Her facial features are done in pastels and colored pencils.

I don't know if she is as successful in her pantomime as my daughter was in conveying "happy"...but I do wish you joy and contentment and the hope that in your life joy will become real....and not just a pantomime.

Angela, This doll is wonderful. I have found that some of the pieces I've made that are my favorites are those that have a story. They just come out better. While I can't imagine any of your work not coming out fabulous, I'm wondering if you feel the same way about your creations. Keep up the inspiring work! Hugs, Kathleen

Victoria is seeing your dolls for the first time and about every other picture she says, "I WANT that one!"

This doll has to be your most beautiful to date. I am still looking for that youngest sister doll you mentioned in your last post! I want to see it (better get started on making it! hee hee).

Your youngest and my Rebecca (youngest) may be separated twins when you describe the non-stop personality. Sylmon once asked about Rebecca, "does she EVER shut up?" Erm ,no dear.
