I'm Wee Bit.
The doll Yvette made in elinor peace baileys class on Saturday.
Elinor did my face - Isn't it beautiful? She does such wonderful faces.
What an exciting time that was.
She is such an inspiration to all doll makers and to watch her make faces was just wonderful!
I was amazed how she could take her crayons and pens and just color so fast and create a fabulous face.
The most amazing thing was that she purchased a teddy bear and doll pin from me. I couldn't believe it! She also asked me to make her some earrings. WOW she wants some of my art!!
The class was held at a really cool fabric/fibre art store. It is called 145 Art and Design Studio and is located in Culpeper, Virginia. The shop has amazing fabrics and yummy fibres and all kinds of art supplies. Noreen, the owner, is such a sweet person. She really went out of her way to make the class wonderful. She even brought us chocolate during the middle of the class. Can't get any better than that! If you are ever in the area stop by and check out her store. It is like a candy store for fabric lovers.
It was such a wonderful day! I will cherish the memory forever!

Wow Yvette, Sounds like you had a blast with Elinor and her class. Elinor does beautiful faces and is so much fun when she talks about the character while painting/ coloring. Your Wee Bit is very very cute and I love the colors you picked.

Wow! I think you almost had her finished in class but with everything going on there I didn't get a chance to tell you how much I like her. Great colors and I especially love the hair!
