How intimidating this is, starting the first post of a new blog! The first blog post ever, for me! Who am I writing to? Why are they reading it? Are they reading it?? Does it matter if they read it or not??? It doesn't really, does it? How freeing!!! Although I suppose, sometime in the future they may find that excessive, un-read blog posts in the early 21st century contributed to global warming and the extinction of polar bears ..... oh dear, now I'm worried again!
Maybe what I will tell myself is that, as long as we keep making blog entries, this first one is going to quietly sink down to the bottom of the page, out of sight beyond the lower edge of your computer's monitor and eventually settle into the silt down there. That's comforting.
But wait, maybe after it has sat in the silt for a while, it will fossilize and eons from now some cyber paleontologist will dig it up and look at the fragments and ...... oh, what the heck! Without anymore preamble, let me introduce you to a doll project that I've been having fun with for the last year. I'm actually almost "done" with the entire project and thus to share the monthly entries is going to be a piece of cake - just pull out year-old photos and slap them in a blog entry! (But along this line of thought, I have to tell you that I'm very proud of myself that I have been on-time throughout the last year with this project and I have kept going and will see it to completion. "Good job R." Thanks.)
A little over a year ago I received a Farmer's Almanac calendar that emphasized Native American names for the full moons. I found these names interesting and often the scenes they conjured up in my mind I found very amusing. This led me to try to "immortalize" these full moon scenes with my doll gang. You must know that my own sense of humor can be somewhat esoteric at times and thus I'm going to probably leave you saying blankly "What???" Well ..... "you had to be there".
So without further ado, I present the January Full Wolf Moon - "Dancing with the Star Wolf"!! Enjoy, R.
