Have you ever enjoyed making something so much that you almost can't stop?
I have been making little clothespin dolls and I sneak in small applications throughout the day.
Here is how it all began ... again ...
For the I thought of you swap, Debi sent me a box of vintage clothespins so for our birthday swap, I made Debi a little doll using one of the clothespins and included a photo on my presents revealed! blog post. Recently blogging friend Teri saw the doll and asked if I could make dolls and doll kits for her to give as presents. How fun!
So the little assembly line began ...
But I wanted to experiment on other dolls. Things like: how to get the hair right, how to make their clothes, how to draw their faces ...
Now I can't stop! I plan to make more for my online shops.
I made this one when I was about 12. My sister Dede found it and gave it to me to illustrate that I have always been creative.
Teri, here is a sneak peek at the girls. They are awaiting their tulle skirts and embellishments. I'll be sure to keep you posted.
I actually posted earlier today to announce Aimee as the winner of my giveaway. While I have a free moment, I couldn't help but post again. Thank you for indulging me! I'm not very good with will power these days -- dolls, posts, cookies -- what's a girl to do? Enjoy!
