Have you ever heard of a
Corky Beaded Charlotte Doll?

Me neither, at least until I signed up for a swap with
Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group.
The body for these little cuties are, of all things,
a champagne cork, and you build from there.
 
This is the one I made for my swap partner,
so much fun!
 
I am participating in another "Fabric of Nature" ATC swap.
This time, Gloria is hosting for
Altered Souls Art Group.
 
I made my 6 ATCs the same.  Each has a ceramic butterfly that my Grandmother made.  She gave me a box of small ceramic pieces like these to "make something pretty with."
 
Remember these?  I wasn't overJOYed with how they turned out.  Well, I did go back and tweak them just a bit.

Better, no?

Here's another little dress ATC for a swap with a friend.
 
enJOY Your Blessings,
Kimberly

Dearest Kimberly, that tiny doll is WONDERFUL , I love what you did with the Charlotte head-and how gorgeous you dressed her and added little treasures to her head hands and feets!! An amazing artdoll Kimberly!
I also so love the butterflye piece, you created with the ceramic butterfly your grandma gifted you-so lovely ,- and yes the steam punk tags now looks more allive, with a bit of glitter, and the sweet rose !!
