Snowshoe Hare on its way home
Although I am in the business of creating and selling dolls, I find it very hard to say goodbye sometimes. Each doll is a little piece of me...a mood I was in, an idea I had, a long afternoon in the sunshine...
I was reflecting on my ritual of when I sell one, how I let go. All of my dolls are kept in a glass cabinet until they are sold. I will select it from the case, inspect it & make any little adjustments needed before it is sent off to its new home.
Their tags are made and attached, they are packed into a box or bag and I write out a contents tag.
It is a small ritual that makes it just a little bit easier to say goodbye.
This month I have said goodbye to some of my best (so far) and favourite creatures:
I am on holiday all this week so I will be working on a few new creatures! More to come...
