The brief as stipulated by Normajean was to make some dolls using hardware components and to keep the dolls less than bulky for mailing!

I had such fun with Di's Wacky women that I used a similar formula for my "Honey-doos" .
In some ,the armature for the body were made using electrical wiring : the same way as I used the pipe cleaners in the wacky women;

Instead of Florist's tape I used electrical insulation tape to firm and shape the torsos(Not much different to Florist's tape,just heavier quality)

I'd forgotten to buy stainless steel pads for the hair so I used some of the workshop's steel wool pads and gave my girlz a really bad hair day!

(Steel wool hair just loves static electricity build up!)

Battery connectors were used in some of the "hunnies"for hands and feet,and I need to make some "jewellery" featuring fibre washers and beads. Posted by Picasa

Hot off the presses!

From the Silicone Valley News:

Apple Computer reported today that it has developed computer chips that can store & play music inside women's breasts. This is considered to be a major breakthrough because women are always complaining about men staring at their breasts and not listening to them.

Gotcha! :-)

Describing those "clear envelopes"

Those clear" envelopes" are all clear , and similar in construction to the cellophane bags/envelopes you can purchase some commercial cards in (make sense?)
They are NOT like the 'windows" which herald a bill arriving.
I buy mine through a local "scrapbooking and stamping shop".If you're not planning on making a heap of cards,you'll probably find that a pack of 10 (for $2 )is sufficient.
I think they are referred to as an A5 size:They are marginally larger than a 6x4 postcard and have a resealable flip -over flap on the 'short side'
Just make certain that when you seal the envelope you bring the flap down far enough that it is a firm fit around the length of the card.
I also tend to have the picture side on the flap side,and the 'smooth' side on the address side.
I did try scanning one,but being transparent,no amount of editing produced a good image,sorry.
