Remember, when you could only make a recipe if you had the recipe book?
Remember when you could only see your favourite part of Dr Who when it was featured on the telly?
If you can remember this, you're probably a Baby Boomer because there's a whole generation who will never know this because everything they want to look up is here on the internet!.
The internet is one of the things in life which has fulfiled its promise
and everything I ever what to know is here,
If I want to see an image, I go to Google, if I want to see a movie, I go to YouTube and if I want some dollmaking inspiration and techniques, I go to A Cloth Doll Maker's Diary.
A Cloth Doll Maker's Diary is written and curated by Mary Ann, who is an absolute sweetheart and has put a lot of time and care into a collection of tutorials and videos that are pure gold for dollmakers and crafters.
There are videos for demanding techniques, like turning fingers (which I can't do...)
There are also items that are of value to all crafters,
And for all of us feeling the pinch that inevitable after December,
there's an amazing collection of links for freebies
It's an extremely valuable resource,
all beautifully presented, with Mary Ann's charming text and eye for the interesting,
and all collected in the one place.
She has her own blogs , one for making mice
and one for her imaginative and delightful dollmkaing.
She's even a huge Steampunk fan, too.
So, if you're a crafter, or a dollmaker, you should pop over and see what Mary Ann has on offer.
There's always something good, inspiring and creative,
