#47 - Do you have any spare turkey?
This little lady looks like she needs a place to spend Thanksgiving. Come on in, little clothespin lady!

046/365 - Blonde Haired Angel

#046 - I'm like, an angel.
The funny part of this is, I'm not especially fond of angels. But I LOVE this little lady and her dark haired friend from yesterday.

Their wings are some kind of butterfly ornament from the dollar store.

Might be the best $1.00 purchase I've made in quite awhile.

045/365 - Angel with Gold Wings

#045 - Flutter, flutter, flutter.
Honestly, I am not normally a big fan of angels. But this little one just happened (as seems to be the case with a lot of these clothespins for me).

Another doll with no face, but I really like her. There's an elegance to the faceless dolls that the ones I paint (with big cartoony eyes) don't have.

I like both kinds, and I'll do cartoony clothespins again, I'm sure. But for now, I kind of like this style.

044/365 - Another Flower Fairy

#44 - Autumn is the hush before Winter.
This little flower fairy, and her orange sister before her, were kind of a departure for me. I would've said I didn't like dolls without faces, but I really like these two. Rather than being expressionless, they are in whatever mood the viewer sees them in. They have ALL expressions.

Or so it seems to me. :)

043/365 - Fall Flower Fairy

#043 - Better luck next year, little bush.
Maybe the colorful fairies of the Fall are here to comfort the trees, as they strip naked in public (maybe they're blushing, and that's what causes the reddish colors of the leaves?), and encouraging them to try for even more beautiful foliage next year.

Or maybe they sing them lullabies so they can sleep peacefully through the Winter.

Dunno. I don't know much about fairies.

042/365 - Zag, Another Christmas Fairy

So, this is Zag.

#042 - Wheeeeee!!! Christmas fairyeeeeeeeee!!!
Yeah.

This is apparently what happens when I don't get enough sleep.

Cute, though. :)

041/365 - Zig, A Christmas Fairy

Life is getting to me. I'm just stressed and busy all the time.

So my inner 8 year old did this.

Meet Zig, the Christmas Fairy. 

#041 - Christmas is almost heeeeeeeere!!!
Tomorrow you get to meet her sister.
