Dancing Dahlia goes KerSPLAT!




Oh, dear Dahlia the Dancing Queen has just finished her performance and kerSPLAT she went! She entertained the crowd as they roared wildly. Her pirouettes and mesmerizing movements brought everyone to their feet in a standing ovation! This happy hippo's dance was the highlight of the show! But alas, this golden crowned queen must bid her fans goodbye for now and get some rest (and a cotton candy snack).

Dahlia will be my last circus inspired doll for awhile. We all need a vacation from the craziness of the circus so we can come back and perform at our best :)!

I am working on 9 new pieces...here is another sneak peek of what's in store. I have been sculpting like crazy and now I am waiting for everything to dry thoroughly. I hope, hope, hope that I will be able to start painting them tomorrow.

Check in this weekend for a new update on the other important SnipPet project...spaying and neutering feral cats in our area. My goal is to trap 5 cats on Friday night and get them snipped on Saturday!
