Aww, it’s been oh, so very long!!! I am sorry! I’ve had so much going on with my health since September. I’m not ready to get into it all right now, but maybe in the future or in little bits. Not sure what I’m comfortable with putting on the wide open web. I am healing and feel good right now. Please add a comment to this post or send me an email. (I added a contact form under the tab at the top of this blog.) I’d love to hear from you.
Truthfully, I haven’t been interested in my dolls and creating things for them over these past months, so many other things to worry about. It wasn’t until my website hosting expired two weeks ago that I started to miss all of this. Trying to find a new and affordable site for my small business (which I didn’t), then figuring out how to get my patterns for sale on Ravelry and posting about that on Facebook. Well, all the love and comments from that post and subsequent posts rekindled my love for creating and my dolls. I’ve missed you all very much!
First up is getting some unfinished patterns (finally) finished and published. I’ve gotten rusty at the process; there are quite a few steps, but I am trying. Adding to my brain being rusty, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop are barely working on my laptop. They’ve updated and are charging a subscription price now. *sigh*
I want to wish all of you a ‘lucky’ St. Paddy’s day! Here is my little Fairyland PukiPuki named Sugar looking as pixie-ish as she possibly could. (Photo from 2014)
I presently have six different dolls all dressed up in Christmas ensembles, and the poor things have nowhere to go. How about posing for some photos, girls? Let’s show everyone how cute you all are. Say cheese!
Even though all six dolls are of different proportions and sizes, I think they all look adorable together, don’t you, too?
While the girls were modeling, I put them to “work” by having them add some Christmas spirit to my studio. Sugar (Fairyland Pukipuki) and Amelia Thimble brought around the jingle bells so that we all can add our own holiday ring-a-linging. Patience and Millie (by Kaye Wiggs) made tiny everlasting snowmen, and Rose (Boneka/Effner) brought some “heart” into the mix. Ivy, a handmade mohair bear from Warm Heart Bears showed she had some real paper cutting skills. How cute are those paper snowflakes! Great job, Ivy! Even the Christmas stripe-y dachshund carried a wreath for hanging.
We had a fun day today!
Patience’s ensemble (SOLD) and Millie’s ensemble are currently available on my website. Sugar, Amelia Thimble, and Rose’s will be available this coming weekend and into next week. Be sure to keep an eye out here and on Facebook if you are interested.
I hope that you are enjoying this first week of the holiday season. I love this time before Christmas; there’s anticipatory magic in the air.
