Minoan Dress Designs For the Sims

What else I've been working on:



I've had a bunch of these little Minoan dresses done for a while now, but this week I started gathering them all together and organizing and designing some pages for a (maybe) Sims 1 site of my own. (We'll see, and I'm not promising anything just yet.) I don't know if these quite count as "toys," though they are of course for a game. Aren't they spiff? The first is after a painting from Thera and is true to the original colors; the second after a terracotta votive dress painted with a design of saffron crocuses from Knossos, and the last is modelled on the famous faience Snake Goddess, also from Knossos (with blouse added; I made one without the blouse, which is more authentic, but I need to redo the thumbnail).

I've also been keeping a Creativity Log quite religiously, in which (per Leah's suggestion) I've been writing down the creative things I do each day. I'm rather surprised just how much I do, really. I'm finding it unbelievably helpful to be able to see it out in the open like that; it reminds me of and makes me acknowledge what I've done. I'm one of those people who if I can't see it, I'll forget it exists, which goes even more for works in progress.
