Let's play Guess Who!


I finished up yet another pincushion doll this week. 

Can you guess who it is?


Does this help???

I am sure you have seen her hiding in the comment section of your blog. 
She is always leaving the sweetest messages for everyone. 

 I wanted to see if I could sculpt a doll a bit more cute as opposed to the more realistic style of dolls I have created earlier. I am trying to expand my skills to go in this direction and what better model to work with than one we all know and love? 

I got permission to make her.... 
(not easy with some cartoon characters...but I know a lady...*wink) 

This lady and I have known each other for years. She has always been a ray of sunshine to my blog as I am sure she is to yours as well. So.... I decided to package up this little doll and send her off as a bit of a surprise for this kind lady. She is off to her new home where upon her arrival she will be coming to life with color photos for all of you, but until then.....

Rockin' the dots!



Well.... I think I am officially addicted to creating these pincushion dolls.
I had no idea what I was getting into when 
introduced me to these little cuties. 

Meet Macie.

I call her that because she looks just like a Macie that works with my daughter. I keep making these girls with faces of people I know. I made Mrs. Wilson the other day - she is a teacher at the local high school..... I have also made a lady you all may know very well that I will be showcasing soon. I have decided that I LOVE sculpting... it is quite time consuming, but I enjoy it very much. I have wasted many hours this past week on this fun new hobby.

Celebrating Moms

Mother's Day is fast approaching. I have the most wonderful mother. I admire all that she does, and she is such a treasure in my life.  I love this holiday, as we celebrate the ladies who make our houses homes, those who comfort us, and encourage us. Women are amazing people, and I have always loved celebrating them. This holiday gives you an excuse to stop and say Thank You for all of the little things that the women in your life do for you.
I made up this stitchery design as a sweet reminder of the women in my life who bring me so much joy. As I reminisce about all of the kind things women have done for me I thought it best to incorporate this design into a photo album. There have been so many cards and letters written to me, over the years, all from wonderful women who took time out of their day to make mine special. What a wonderful way to store all of those special memories don't you think?
