Off Dancing with the Pyksees!
My first Pyksee beginning the series will have laughing eyes. As I start pulling him together, his story will be about finding his laugh. In his development, hopefully he will reveal not only how he lost his laugh but more importantly, how he found it again. Laughter is an important element of the Pyksees.
I am so excited that I will soon begin my trip to Scotland and the surrounding area. What fun it will be to explore the history and magic. To be able to trace the roots of the Pyksee by visiting Cornwall (as that place is certainly on my agenda). I am even hoping to be served tea out of a real Cornish tea pot too!
As my Brownies helped me see the magic and allowed me to invite them in, my Pyksees will teach me how to dance, to find the rhythm and flow of the music which brings forth my laughter.
Esmeralda, the Singer
If Esmeralda (which by the way - she is soooo glad I finally spelled her name right!) was going to be a singer, she was going to need bling! I love the costumes of the jazz era and it was handy that "Chicago" hit the TV late night showing to give me some additional inspiration.
Finally, after following all the paths Esmeralda took me on, here she is for her Debut! To me she has a little look of Barbra Streisand like in "Hello Dolly"... so, introducing her to you, here is...
The Brownie Apprentice
I find it is interesting how something as simple as a dress can tell you something about a person. Yes, my great grandmother was shorter than I. But then being the second tallest girl in my school growing up, everyone was shorter than me. I never realized truly how small of a waist she had. She certainly had the small 18 inch waistline required of her century. Also, the detail in the dress of the pin-tucking and lace enhanced a very basic design - taking it out of the ordinary for her special event of her wedding.
Welcome to my blog. This is where I will reveal the magic of my Fae and their stories and share with you some of the success and pitfalls through the journey of doll making, sculpting, and other crafts that all come back to my dolls in many ways.
