Lenore and the raven

Here's what I created today, for the challenges at Opus Gluei and Open-Minded Crafting Fun.
The Opus Gluei challenge is Treat Yourself, and I took that as an instruction to buy this blue-haired beauty. She wasn't on sale, and I didn't need her for anything, so I hadn't allowed myself to buy her when I first spotted her a couple of weeks ago, but I LOVE her blue hair. She;s by Alehandra Vanhek and is available at Pics For Design.
The Open-Minded Crafting Fun challenge is All Kinds of Fowl, but they expanded it to include any type of bird, so I swooped into Raven mode and allowed myself to be inspired by Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven. That's where the quote around the edge comes from, and Lenore is the name of the "the rare and radiant maiden" in the poem.

Good for you for treating yourself for no good reason and not worrying about whether or not you need it or if it is on sale! I struggle with the same kind of thinking. And you're right, her blue hair is awesome! Thanks for sharing this with us at Opus Gluei!

Love the image...blue hair always reminds me of the wise fairy in Pinocchio. Isn't it a lovely indulgent feeling to make something just because you can? Thanks for joining us at Opus Gluei this week.
