My own brain is to me the most unaccountable of machinery – always buzzing, humming, soaring roaring diving, and then buried in mud. And why? What’s this passion for?
And some tutorials, you know you want to make something today. Just pick one and go go go!

- Paper dolls – I love these Workspace Guardians that Diane made
In the tutorial above Diane did paper-dolls with images of real peoples heads. Diane’s card came to mind when I saw a collection of extremely cool cards at the Bildmuseum in Umeå this summer. This was the one I bought:
Virginia Woolf as a paper card! Isn’t it the coolest card ever? Ever? I was going to hang it on my inspiration board, but when I opened the plastic I noticed that it’s a double card so you can actually stand it up on your table! The card came with sticker quotes that are called Quotable Notables! I want to collect all of the cards but I especially want Oscar Wilde, Mona Lisa, Dorothy Parker – and Shakespeare of course! But I should make some myself too, I think paper dolls are way fun!
I want “something” from the journal section of the site where I found information about the cards, such pretty notebooks there! I like the one with a frog, and the quote covered ones. Yummy journals! :-)
I made Valentine Cards (2007) where I used a photo of my own head! My big b/w smiling and kissing head, hehe.
