I’ve completed my first VooDoo doll.
She comes from the woods and emerges after the Full Moon.

Her bones are wild Angelica stem
Her body is brushed cat tail “cotton” with wild thyme + lavender
Her skirt is rock moss and partridge vines
Her head is wild Angelica buds and marsh bulb
Her soul is Love. Health. Happiness

Her name is LahLah
