The curtain's coming down on the Nutcracker Ballet. And no time to create what I had hoped, so my 'Fairy, Queen of Scots' is no longer the understudy. She's now playing the lead role of the Sugar Plum Fairy. That's showbiz.

There are many layered acts in the ballet of life.
And I feel like the curtain is about to come up (or down!) and I'm in between costume changes!!(This doll head/hat was inspired from an eBay auction I was watching a week ago of a Schomeau Hoffmeister doll riding a horse that sold for $970.00- Needless to say I didn't 'win'-ouch! Click here to see it)
I've been working non-stop in the real-job office the last few weeks. I'm hoping to finish a few 'Nutcracker'-inspired creations soon.
Let's hope it ends as planned, with "The Nutcracker Ballet". And not just nuts.
