Plaidpoppy before she was Famous

My good friend Plaidpoppy made this wonderful doll. The recipient was a mutual friend of ours. Plaidpoppy now lives thousands and thousands of miles away. Truthfully, only down south, but it feels like 1000's of miles.
Before she so rudely moved south, she lived in a loft apartment behind the shoppe.
When we were having a slow day (winter) I would call her to pop down for coffee, she would always come, we would enjoy good coffee, conversation, music, and formed a great friendship.
I have been trying to encourage Poppy to sell some of her creations, start a little business, become famous in the handcrafted world. She could then fund her creativity, purchase additional art supplies, be creative, and so on and so on.
I will keep you updated on my success, keep your fingers crossed.
You all know there is a difference between handmade and homemade don't you?

Wow it is holding up well! I wish I could find the calcified fish spines here. I could find so many in Michigan. I would change a lot on that doll now. I must make a new one tonight.
