My doll, Audacity, is one tough cookie. I got up this morning and she'd packed up her journal and herself and demanded I send her on to Mary Anne in Canada - almost 3 weeks early! Said NC was too damn hot and she wasn't into sweating. I tried to tell her it'd been hot up there this year, too, but she just responded, "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn." Says I'll be lucky if she even comes back to visit this godawful state.

So here she is, my demanding doll, Audacity.

Audacity began life as a stick, but, for God's sake, don't mention that. She ain't proud of her roots (hee hee). The stick was wrapped in batting and then paper mache-ed and collaged with magazine pages. Her head is hollow (lord, I hope she doesn't read this!), shaped from cardboard and paper mache-ed. Her chest adornment is an old, decorative piece of metal cupboard hardware. From tiny waist to the top of her head, she measures about 7 inches.

Audacity's travel journal is also paper mache with an open spine. It measures 7.5" X 4.5".

My starting journal entry:

Audacity and her travel journal, now heading from NC, USA to Ontario, CAN! Get ready MA!
