God Leaf Mask and Goddess Doll

Here is the leaf mask that I made for the god, and the very amateur goddess doll. She is made from a pillow case. I used fabric markers to add the color. She has ivy leaves (like the god mask), half-moon trinkets, keys on her hands, and moonstones. Now, here is where it gets unique and personal to me: she is stuffed with moss, dried mint, dried lavender, dried basil, and dried rose petals. I grew, harvested, and dried some things a few years back, just for the experience. I am including a picture of a fox that is stuffed...he sits in my living room. The fox was actually road-kill...lol. Behind him you may be able to see a collection of frogs, one of my totem animals. Anyway, I hope you like!
Blessed Be,

Pattie

Oh, I like that the goddess doll is stuffed with materials you collected and dried yourself.  That is unique.  I like the designs on her as well.

The energy coming through the pictures is amazing.  Well done.  Did you wire-wrapped the moonstones yourself, as well?  My wire-wrapping technique is abysmal!  Don't know why I think this, but the fox's spirit may be very pleased to be the model.

Thank you...I did not do the wire wrapping, I had ordered them several years back and wore them for a while as necklaces. I, too, think the fox spirit feels that way!

Hello sister.....my father's grandmother was Shawnee.  I never found this out until after my father passed away many years ago....to him what ever dealt with the past was of no importance..the present and future were all he cared about.  He would also reply "he didn't know" if you asked any questions about his ancestors..or he would say "doesn't matter..not important..they're long gone".  My uncle finally did the research as he didn't know anything about his ancestors either (he was the baby of the family and they were long gone before he was born).....the only thing he knew was the stories his mother told him about her side of the family...she never talked about my grandfather's side.  Her family came here from Ireland and Scotland...most were "dirt poor" except for one uncle and he made them enter through the servants entrance when they visited.

My grandmother in her kilt.........................................

I just finished a cloth sculpture for a Halloween challenge at CDA which I also submitted to a challenge at the yahoo goddess group I belong to.  I call her "Mistress Pumpkin and her pet crow Mr. Cawcawford".

Well done!  The fox seems pleased with your creation as well!
