a special order

Well, friends, my clothespin doll craze continues ...

Link
Please bear with me as I share my glee over completing the special order of six dolls with doll kits for Terri at the glittered nest.
{love that blog name}



Three dolls with brown hair and three with blond



All dolled-up with the goal of making six little girls swoon over them



I enjoy designing so naturally putting together a booklet was in order



I also love assembling little packages (as you may already know)



This wonderfully shabby box from Cindy has been serving as my tool box



I also included some extra odds and ends for Terri (who I'm guessing will host a doll making party). With the special order on its way, I am now moving on to playing with holiday colors ...



Thank you again for hanging in there for this long post!

Those little packages are precious. Love em. Great designing. But your new doll with the green felt skirt really made me happy. What a treat.
And I don't even like dolls. You're making me feel way too girl. Yuck. ;-)
