Outfits: Slumber

You can't see it, but the green crayon sparkles.
My heart thrills when I see paper dolls with their pages of perfectly planned outfits. When I opened bright, shiny, Barbie boxes, my favorite thing was the way everything went together with the perfect accessories. I am far from the most experienced accessory seamstress, but when it comes to designing an outfit, I think that's half the fun. That is why I am planning to make more outfits so my inner Barbie lover can soar.

My illustrious 8 month old helped me with the illustration. Quite gifted, eh? Hopefully I can complete one thing a week and then, voila! A finished masterpiece.

In other news... I've had an interesting realization about writing. I CANNOT write a House of Slide Book in the summer. CANNOT. Don't want to read it, don't want to fix it, and that is okay because Watergirl is my summer novel. I am so seasonal that I don't want to read or write moody evocative brooding stuff in the summer. I want fluffy, fun, light and mermaidy. So that's my excuse for not doing edits of book 3.

Does anybody else like some things better in summer than winter? I'd love to hear comments.
