White Rabbits- Soul Stitches

When I first started this blog my intent was to take time to stop and take the time to notice the simple beauty in life. I should of realize at that moment that I was telling myself of what was to come...

....to slow down and take the time. With some recent health concerns I have had to slow down and this has actually been a blessing!

While creating these rabbits (in my "new" slower state) the joy of dollmaking has returned to me. I have found a parallel with my health and my dollmaking- both are both a concerted effort. I have taken the time to re-learn (and still working on it!) how to enjoy or "stroll " through the journey instead of a break-neck pace through to the completion of the process.

With this effort, I have now been able to experiment with some new techniques and time to think about what I want to communicate to you, the viewer, with these dolls.

All in all dollmaking has always been a part of my DNA- a gifted instinct- working on creating these dolls has helped me realize just that...they are stitches from my soul...

  1. Leslie - I agree and have found that "slowing down" makes a wonderful, positive difference in my attitude towards my photography and the final result. When not locked in the project-mode it seems my mind opens up and I discover and re-discover good works and techniques. I also take notice of the little, beautiful things around me. Your work is First Class.
