Introducing Noel

Allow me to introduce you to Noel. She's a little shy, but very sweet. Her base is a maple branch wrapped in cotton batting. Her body is then wrapped in a coat of glittery white velvet. Her hair is clear AB snowflake sequins and silver glass seed beads. Her shy little face is a polymer clay cab I created using a rubber stamp to imprint the face and markers to give her a little color. The stamp was originally of a spring maiden, but with a few tweeks and a few imbedded firpolished crystals, she makes a lovely now maiden. Noel is clothed in a flurry of silver thread, silver snowflake sequins, glass beads, and garlands of seedbeads. Her gown ends with icicle fringe. She even has a hoop on the back for hanging. My daughter names her Noel because she "looks like Christmas." She is also signed and has her name on the back. I'm thinking of putting Noel up for sale. She's beautiful and she's in my favorite colors to work with, but she doesn't belong here. She says she was designed for someone else.

On a personal note, hubby and I celebrated 12 years of wedded bliss this weekend. It's hard to believe that it's been that long, time flies when you are in love and having fun. We had a family weekend this year, Saturday we went out for sushi and ice cream. Last night we went out to see Cars at the theater. It's a funny moving, I want the DVD.
