My first Cloth and Clay doll....

I learned so much from Jane aka Grittyjane`s workshop on cloth and clay dolls. I wanted to share my very first doll with you all. I had a blast making her and look forward to doing some more.

Jane was a wonderful teacher. I highly recommend her class to anyone who would like to create their own cloth and clay doll!grittyartsstudio

Bella`s 1st birthday.....

and for her present she was gifted a visit to the vet....LOL Poor thing she has dermatitis so needed more meds and also is in the midst of a false pregnancy so wanted to make sure everything was ok. See thats what happens when you don`t get them fixed before their first heat...LOL

After the vet visit and her steroid shot it was a good day. She celebrated with Buddy and Tank. The cake of choice was apple pie. I forgot to pick up a girlie hat today so I had to cover an old one with fabric and tinsel purchased from Annie of iblur:
