Journal for me

The other day while I was doodling I suddenly thought of making a journal. I am no good at it so I thought I would just make it for myself. Do it as and when I please and not get stressed about it even if it is no good. So I thought of painting my dolls one by one. Not all the dolls but just the ones which have some significance or the other. So here is my first page with my first doll. I will remember it always and probably keep her always. She had got lost, so I thought and didn't see her for several years but I found her recently and I think to myself perhaps I need more than a pair of glasses to see lol! She was right there under my very nose all the time. I shall stick a piece of the fabric out of which I made her cloths. I may not be able to do it all the time but if I have it I shall stick it in the page.
So she started me on my dollmaking journey when I had just come out of a particularly stressful period in my life so she is very special to me also she makes me realise how far I have come.
