Guest Diva, Emily Classon, CZT, presented this week’s challenge which was to be inspired by dolls. According to my mother, I never had a favorite doll growing up, but as a toddler I apparently was quite devoted to a stuffed animal—a rabbit. It sounds as though my devotion actually rose the level of an addiction because when my rabbit went missing at the supermarket when I was age 3, my parents spent a few hours combing the supermarket trash dumpster searching for him/her. They were quite relieved to find my somewhat filthy, smelly stuffed rabbit who was made presentable by a trip to the washing machine.
I do remember playing with paper dolls with my sisters, so my response to the challenge is a fancy dress suitable for a cut out paper doll. Judging by the result, I must have channeled my inner Scarlett O’Hara of Gone With the Wind fame.
