Day 1 – Witch doctors/Voodoo dolls



It’s so great to see so many people from last year. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s new creations. Charlie, the cats and everyone here are fine.

I don’t have an overall plan for the month except trying to get more things on my etsy site. I have a hard time putting new items on it.

These little guys are made from some of my scarves that didn’t turn out quite right or got damaged in the steaming process (very frustrating!).

I dropped a few off to one of the stores that carries my stuff. The owner told me about another crafter who was inexplicably hostile to this very nice lady. The crafter said that she sometimes thought the owner had a voodoo doll of her in the back somewhere. Well, now she actually does!


About Susan Brandt

I am an artist concentrating on hand-painting silk. I sell online (, at craft shows and in shops. I don't have a plan for Thing-A-Day 2014, though, as always, it will most likely involve new hand-painted silk stuff.


  1. Absolutely love the voodoo dolls!

  2. Great to see you again too! Love the expressions on the doll faces. Give Charlie some ear scratches from me. :)

  3. Love ’em! The pin in hand is an especially wonderful touch.

    Thanks for the feedback, peoples. I often don’t know if something I’ve created is any good. Sometimes I like it and I don’t know if others will. Other times I don’t even know if I like it anymore by the time I’m done.
