Yankee Doodle Party Girl

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is having a great day! Time is flying by so quickly and spring will finally be here before we know it! I did get a chance to see some bulbs trying to make their way out of the dirt before this last batch of snow and cold came through...... so not too far away, the warmer weather lurks.....
I made two new dollies this past week and have them on Ebay. The first was inspired by all the glitz and glam buzz surrounding the Oscars and also last week was the first week of Mardi Gras, so Brenda, the Masquerade Party girl was born. I also wanted to use the cute little tricorn hat I found on a trip to Colonial Williamsburg a year or so back, and then Joyce was born! I named these dollies after two wonderful friends of mine. They are very dear to me and I wouldn't know what I would do without them! Thanks chicklets for all your support and knowledge!
I'm trying to get back to the workroom and make a Leprechaun dolly, so stay tuned for him!
Have a Primsical Day!

Excitement in the Air!

Back in September of '08, Doll Crafter and Costuming Magazine asked me if I would like to create a doll for their magazine. Without any hesitation, I said "Yes!" then about peed my pants. They were interested in a Springtime Raggedy Ann Doll, with pattern, to share with their readers in the April of '09 issue. The April issue is ready and should be in the hands of their subscribers now and on newsstands by the end of February. I received an advanced copy and excitement cannot begin to describe on how I feel! Amazed, In Awe, Who Me?, Happy..... I could go on and on here, but I won't! LOL And to be in an issue with Elinor Peace Bailey is just over the moon!
I thought I would share with you some of the pictures.....
The Cover

Table of Contents

From the Editor

And the Intro to the Pattern

And Lastly, the real picture I took

Thank you all for letting me share the news with you!
I will be having a giveaway soon and the lucky person who leaves a comment will have their name put into a hat and the winner will receive a signed copy of the magazine!

Have a Primsical Day!

Love is in the Air.......

Happy V-Day Everyone! I've been in the kitchen the past few days and not in my workroom too much. One of the things we made today was a Macaroni and Cheese Pizza. My girl said it was good, but I would have to give it some pizzaz! I've got a great recipe for homemade pizza dough. Very easy, especially when you have a big stand mixer with a dough hook! If you want the recipe, leave a comment or email me! I've been trying to get more than a couple of dollies done this week, but time kept getting away from me. Here are the two I did get done:

Neecie and Baby Mer



Black Magic Doll

I have a third I hope to list on Sunday night. She is a sunflower doll.....just playing the waiting game for things to dry! LOL Make sure to stop back on Sunday..... I will post some exciting news for you all to see!

Have a Primsical Day

Newly Listed.......

Aaaaaawwwwww the winter thaw has begun! I Hope! At least we finally got a break from the bitter cold winter this year. Almost 50 degrees today with rain on the way. I'm sitting here listening to The Beatles and thinking about, hopefully, hearing the birds churping soon.
Below are my listings for Ebay this Saturday night. I loved making Pam Gracia's frog pattern sew much, I just had to make another. This one is on his way to the pond, in his rented wagon, to go fishing and soak up some sun! LOL You just smile when you look at her! I also had an urge to make a witch this week. I used my same whispy wool for hair, but it was dyed black. She also has some great, long eyelashes.

I'm excited for Monday to come! I am going on a fabric run. Gosh, sounds like an addict! hahahaha Well, I really do think I am addicted to fabric. I will try to remember to take my camera and take some pics of this great Amish Quilt Shoppe that I go to. There is fabric everywhere there. Half the time you can't walk down the aisle because the fabric is stacked on the floor too! Can't wait to see what I will find! Until next time......
Have a Primsical Day!
