The boys may be gone over seas, but she still has work to do.
I love these old uniforms, and how the colors and types of hats, and even headscarves, designated what job a woman had. Below are two of my favorite war propaganda posters depicting jobs for women during the war.

When she's not singing at the nightclub, she can throw on this little number for comfort and style while she is helping her family around the house.
I had a gentleman tell me this weekend that you wouldn't wear green shoes with a red dress. I told him that maybe it wasn't traditional, but that I would wear them together. Luckily, I was wearing about five different colors that day, which illustrated my point perfectly.

I have been working non-stop on my little paper doll project in preparation for this weekend's Artisphere festival. Doing these pieces is more like playing than work. Want to see these pieces in person or take a few home with you? Come by the studio this weekend. Artisphere runs Friday night, all day Saturday, and all day Sunday up on Main St., and the artists of Art Crossing will be open then as well.

I have been dilligently working on some smaller versions of my paper doll pieces. I hope to have a multitude of dolls and outfit pieces ready for next weekend's Artisphere festival. The fun part has been trying to make each one different. The hard part is narrowing down all the ideas that I have. If you are around for First Friday tomorrow night, stop in the studio to see what I have been doing.
