Valentine's Doll

I finished her tonight. She is not quite like what I had in mind. I had the hardest time with her face. The one you see is not what I started with. This one is actually a polymer clay face I glued on to her after trying so hard to paint a nice face on her built on head. It looked like one of those blow up dolls before. I kept painting over it and repainting but to no avail. Finally, I just glued one of these one her head.

I have a higher appreciation for Noodle and Lou now. Her little doll was just precious. But, this is my version and I know my friend will like her. It is definitely the F.A.Q. version.

Today was a special day because we celebrated my son's 19th birthday. We all went to Midland and ate at Carinos-I'm still full. We shopped and enjoyed each other's company. I can't believe my baby boy is 19. It has been a lovely weekend thus far. Tomorrow.....laundry, housekeeping, etc.....yuk!!! Have a good Sunday. Hugs!
