The last couple of days have been in trying to contain myself into finishing projects already in process before jumping into newly inspired ideas from this past weekend.

|The doll I purchased from the Oddest Goddess|
The American Craft Council was an incredible experience and my eyes were treated to visual creativity with every step. I have been making notes and doing sketches to try to capture all the thoughts stirred up from this experience. We met some very fun and inspirational people, most notably the woman who invited my friend to the show...The Oddest Goddess. This lady is so down to earth and nice, especially after learning her story. She is the sole support for her husband (who has a brain tumor) and daughter (who also has a brain tumor, genetic), her husband and their child. The artist home schools the 12 year old, does all the cooking and housework due to the illness of the others and creates and sells her dolls. All with a smile on her face.
|Barb Kobe is one of my favorite doll artists|
The Oddest Goddess had a doll on display as well as one of my favorite doll makers, Barb Kobe. I was very inspired by seeing the use of fiber and texture in these creations and am itching to finish up the Kindle covers and such to get back to my main passion...the dolls!
