Down the Rabbit Hole and Back Again

I'm Late..I'm Late.. For a very important date..except it's been so long I can't remember what it was!...Oh was returning to posting on my blog! It's been months since I returned from Our Fabulous trip to France, and I'm afriad I have become somewhat lazy about getting back in the groove.
So many of you have been asking where I'm at, I decided it was time to return to the land of the living..So Voila.!!
First I am happy to say I have been invited again this year to participate in The World Ninygo Exhibition in Japan. I believe there was only one other artist from the US invited so needless to say I am extremely honored!
Since we've all been waiting on pins and needles for Tim Burtons Alice film (which is Fabulous by the way), I decided to do a dark version of Alice for my entry for the show. Combined with my facination for Victorian mourning customs, I created " Alice in Mourning for the White Rabbit" Ahh..Poor Monsieur Wabbit! Alas... he is in good hands!
As expected,there has been a sudden population explosion of Alice Dolls! They are taking over the planet!! It's been interesting to see the various takes on her creation.
As I have never been one to follow the trends, this will proobably be my last Alice for awhile..or.. maybe not.....It depends on how long I stay out of wonderland, and if I feel the need to return soon!
I hope you enjoy my little Alice!
Now I'm off on my next adventure!
I'll try not to stay away so long...thanks to all of you who have been kind enough to leave comments despite my dissapearance!!!
Have a SpOOktacular Day!
