"The eyes are the mirror of the soul"

"The eyes are the mirror of the soul".

I finally got the hang of it.
It felt all "loosey-goosey" at first.
I realized I had more control if
I tugged it back and forth using both hands.

"The eye sees a thing more clearly in dreams
than the imagination awake."
~Leonardo da Vinci

I think that's why I never liked the dolls I've tried to make...the eyes didn't give them the personality I wanted them to have! Your creations are ALL personality! FUN! ♥

I agree the eyes make or break the doll. They have to positioned just in the right spot, and sometimes pulled in or left to stick out, it really is quite an art. It is my favorite part of making dolls - just love the eyes. You really are in full production mode here!

I am thrilled to hear the little accordian book arrived safely, and that you like it. I also wanted to tell you that your dolls look lovely - each one of them has such personality. Can't say which kind of eyes I like the best...all are wonderful!

Love your dolls . . . the eyes certainly provide a glimpse into their personality. Your fellow blogger, Connie
