Out of my COMFORT ZONE!!

babushka4

Patty- the Pink Matryoshka……she makes everything look so easy! She cooks, she cleans, she’s always there for her family. She’s put her life on hold. But what can you expect she’s just a doll! Being a good wife, mother, and person takes a lot of work. Some days she’s better at one than the other. She’s a Work-In-Progress! aren’t we all?

I’m so out of my comfort zone with these pinks and purples! So nice of the color generator to throw in an orange for me, I’m much obliged. I like orange! Oh, let me show you…..while doing my google search I came across THIS set of nesting dolls which really cracked me up. The first one is having a hard day, I’d say. I‘ve had a few of those…yep, sure have!

One of these is not like the others………

I think I’ll do a set of 5 of these dolls total. Just two more to go. I’ll try staying out of my comfort zone a little longer and do a doll in the blue series. Blue’s really not so bad, it’s just such a cool color. I’m more drawn to the warms! That’s the reds, oranges, yellows, and greens.

Have you been out of your comfort zone lately??

About Me

My Photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
