Steam-Punk What ????

Main Entry: steampunk
Part of Speech: n
Definition: a genre of science fiction set in Victorian times when steam was the main source of machine power; also written steam-punk.

We also think it means "anything goes". Here are a couple of samples of yesterday's Steam Punk Altered Dolls. Each one turned out so differently. Becky made so many choices available to them so each doll expressed the artists inner steam punk!

How can you not love the polka dots on this doll? Terry did a wonderful job!

We would like you to meet Leah. She created the first doll you saw. Leah drove all the way from Wyoming to spend a week with her sister and to also spend a week with us. Leah took almost every class we offered this week, and trust us there were plenty! She was quite the trooper. Her sister also got to join her for a couple of the classes. By the end of Friday nights class Leah was pretty punchy but she showed up like a trooper on Saturday and created a beautiful doll. Thanks for spending the week with us Leah, and have a safe drive home.
