This is what I've been up to the last few days. I wanted to have a mailbox outside my classroom door this year. My students are always bringing me pictures and "love notes", and I thought they'd get a kick out of mailing them to me. Plus, it's a sneaky way of encouraging literacy! I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out. The next challenge will be hoisting the thing into and out of the car to get it to school. Concrete weighs a lot!
Here is my finished doll for a swap through Milliande. The theme was Nature/Goddess dolls. The body is fabric, painted with acrylic paints, and gold leaf embellishment. The hair is felted wool with pieces of raffia, beads, and feathers.
