Now that my Bridgette online class is over I have immersed myself completely into my next project, Claudette. Claudette will be a very romantic version of the cage doll. And since Claudette lives in the world of romance guess what fantasy world I have been living in lately? I should be decorating my home and getting ready for the holidays but instead I just can’t seem to leave Claudette’s world of romance. I spent the past few days playing with paper, paint, and cardboard to create the romantic and vintage style frame and flowers that will be used in her embellishment. I woke up ridiculously early this morning and had to “gild” the frames by using an idea that just popped into my head.
Of course this fantasy world has also influenced my search for the end of the internet. I thought I would share a few romantic tidbits I found this week.
Did you know that December is one of the biggest times of year for getting engaged? According to an article in USA Today (that of course I found online) the four big proposal days of the year are Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, and New Year’s.
The Romantics, an American power pop and new wave band from Detroit, Michigan formed in 1977 on Valentine’s Day according to Wikipedia. You can hear them perform one of their hits “What I like About You” on youtube by clicking on this link

As my online class Bridgette is winding down on A for Artistic I have been working on my next project, Claudette. She was inspired by words I remembered from one of my dreams, by cage dolls, half dolls, a good sale on pretty bird cages that I found at Michael’s, Marie Antoinette fashions, and Romance. She is far from complete, just in her beginning stages, but I thought you might want to see how she is turning out so far.
