I'm not actually writing about these Trolls but since I am on the subject thought I'd show some of my Russ Troll collection. These were huge when I was a kid and I never had one and was jealous of my friends who had whole collections of them. So as an adult I started picking them up at yard sales etc. I recently found a box of them stored away and decided to give them a home in my studio. This is only some of them, maybe one day I'll share my complete Troll obsession with you! O.k. so maybe this post is a little bit about these Trolls! LOL!

Now on to the real reason for this post. For some reason, who knows why Trolls have been on my mind lately. I know I'm weird, but that's o.k. cause I like myself that way. Sitting watching t.v. I did a quick sketch (kind of embarrassed to show you) then made a quick pattern on the computer.

In the beginning Trolls were flat, without features or life.

They come into the world naked and grumpy.
(kind of like me in the morning, only not naked)

Even with warm tunics they still are not happy.
(Must be a Troll personality trait)

Please meet Granite. He's a Rock Troll. They live in
caves but prefer a good bridge where they can waylay
humans, play mind games, impose tolls and crunch bones.

They also have the cutest bums but hate to show them.
(this one bit me after I took the photo)

I have a forest Troll in progress so stay tuned for his debut.

You just made me have a flashback!
I remember having a couple of trolls and I kept them in an old black patent leather purse with a gold clasp!....
totally forgot about that until just now! Hmmmmmmmmm
Hey! Happy Easter!
