Got Some Ideas Rolling Around

Early Christmas morning, I had a few minutes to myself. I had just finished wrapping some presents and was bitten by the drawing bug. It also led to some ideas for a new doll pattern. The drawing above is a caricature of my daughter Maddy. The drawing was scanned and finished in Photoshop. Hopefully within the next few months, I can get back to making some dolls. In the meantime, I am having surgery on Monday December 29th. I'll need a few weeks to recover and then I'll be as good as new. :)
