So today, I was preparing a list of things I plan to sell at Conglomeration this summer, thinking about my boyfriend as he flies to Russia, and noticing my small collection of matryoshka, you know, those Russian nested wooden dolls?. I suddenly thought, "How awesome would it be to make a set of those!" and visualized a dragon-themed set.
Unfortunately, I am far from a master woodworker, or even an amateur woodworker, or even a woodworker at all, so fashioning my own set of dolls is out of the question. Making dolls out of some other material wouldn't feel right.
I'm still feeling awfully inspired, though, and perhaps I'd be able to hunt down a set of "blank" dolls to paint, if only to have a set just for myself.
