I hope to have a new pattern before Christmas but will have to see if I can work her in. I'll post her picture here later today.
ALSO...All orders placed between now and the end of the year will have their name entered into a drawing for some of my handmade tags. I'll try to get the picture taken today and added here.

The personalized items above are gifts I have made for Christmas. I thought I'd add them here to take possible custom orders for names on items...such as a wood sign, canvas bag, or just about anything that can be painted on. If you're interested in something just email me with PERSONALIZED NAME ITEM in the subject line. There's a contact button in my ezshoppe to send an email. The background color and polka dots can be any color you would like...letters will be black.
I have 2 of these canvas bags below available. The size is 15 1/2" x 11 1/2" (not including the wooden handles) x 5 1/2". The inside has a light plastic coating to protect items you carry. This would be great for books, crafts, things for a small trip, etc. Price is $24.99 plus shipping...can be sent priority mail or first class mail. Just email through my contact button in my ezshoppe with CANVAS BAG in the subject line.

Chelsea Ann's pattern will be available tonight. I will have her listed in my ezshoppe shortly. She is 21 1/2" to the top of her bow. Chelsea Ann is a much bigger doll than my other patterns and is just adorable I think. She'd look really great with some of the smaller dollies sitting with her too.
E-pattern is $8 and mailed pattern is $10 with free shipping in US and $1 off shipping to other countries. Be aware that e-patterns are for your own use only...they can not be sold, traded or given away. It is illegal to do that and I am going to refuse the sell of my patterns to anyone caught doing it.

REQUEST & update on Chelsea Ann pattern

UPDATE on Chelsea Ann pattern. Due to an order I need to get out I am running behind on finishing up my Chelsea Ann. I hope to have her done today or tomorrow and will update here on my blog as soon as she is ready.

I also have a request to make...if you buy my patterns they ARE NOT to be SOLD or GIVEN to anyone. Buying the pattern does not give you the right to give it to anyone. It has been brought to my attention that some people are doing this and I am asking kindly that you do not do this...IT IS ILLEGAL. I have also seen some people selling dolls made from my pattern that I know did not buy the pattern. I work very hard on my designs and am so thankful to everyone who is buying them and enjoying making them. It just isn't fair to not pay for the pattern or use it and not give me credit as the designer. I have mistakenly not listed someone as the designer myself before so I know it is an easy mistake to make on occasion but please DO THE RIGHT THING and give credit. If I continue to see this I will be forced to stop making e-patterns as I know this is what has caused this issue. Thanks so much for your understanding on this issue as I do love making dolls and patterns and hope to be able to continue doing it. THANKS!

Hope you have a GREAT weekend!

I have crackled the background on the wooden piece attached to the front and painted 5 gingerbread girls on it. I added some snacks for the picture so you could see one use for it...the snacks aren't included...lol. It would be great for bread, towels, dolls, etc. Just email if you're interested in buying it....you can go to my ezshoppe in the top right corner and use the contact button...put gingerbread basket in the subject line please.
EMAILS: I have been getting some emails lately with attachments from people I don't know so I thought I should put a note here. If you are trying to email me about my items please do not add icons, attachments, etc. as I do not open those from people I don't know. Just wanted to note that in case anyone just thought I wasn't emailing them back on purpose. You just never know about virsuses and all on attachments and I'm not taking any chances....hope you understand.
PATTERN UPDATE: I am finishing up my Gabby Ann tonight so I'll have her picture added tomorrow and should have her pattern ready tomorrow or Thursday. Hopefully I'll have a couple others too but will have to see what all I can finish up.

new PAINTED Annie items

Lots of new painted items done and more to come soon as I need to make room in my craft room so I can work in here more. Here are some of the new Annie items. I hope to get some individual photos done tomorrow and post them along with price. If you're interested in anythings just let me know. The items include a metal container (holding a set of hand drawn notecards/envelopes, a travel tissue with cover, a small legal pad decorated and candy), an 8 x10 canvas with Annie holding her chicken (suitable to be displayed as is or would look great in a black frame), a glass jar (great for pencils/pens, utensils, candy, etc.), a night light, and photo albums (fit 100 4 x 6 photos)...I do have more of the photo albums that aren't pictured and they will be personalized in the area above Annie or to the side of her.
NEW PATTERNS UPDATE: I will have new doll patterns coming out soon. They are already sewn and stuffed...just waiting to be stained and finished. I hope to have the first one done over the weekend and will post any new updates on here as soon as I have anything done.
Things have been super busy here so I haven't had time to get close ups or prices on here so I thought I'd go ahead and put prices since I've had some emails about it...
prices do not include shipping...that would be determined by your zip code...
A is for Annie metal holder with items $35.00
pencil/pen jar $11.00
photo albums ~ $15 each
painted canvas with Annie holding chicken ~ $18
night light ~ $15
I do have more than 1 of some items so if you want more than one just ask and I'll let you know what I have.
Custom orders will be taken on the metal holder or night light as I have more of those that only have the background done so I could paint whatever you'd like on those.

First day of middle school & UPDATES

Hi Everyone!

I hope you're all doing well. It's been a crazy summer and time hasn't seemed to allow a lot of creativity or catching up with friends emails. So if I haven't emailed you already I will be going through my list this week and if you don't hear from me please do email again as my mind isn't what it used to be...LOL! I am hoping to get back on things this week and catch up on some emails as well as show you some of my new patterns coming soon, new dolls and new Winter/Christmas tags.

Today was the first day of middle school for Savannah and I took her picture as I always do the first morning. I just thought I'd share it with you all. I am very anxious to pick her up in a couple hours and see how her first day went. Keeping my fingers crossed that it all went well. Savannah had all A's through elementary school and we're so proud of her for that. I hope she'll be able to keep up with that with 7 teachers this year instead of 1. Lots of changes and I'm not much on new changes but I think this is a good change for her and I think it will bring her lots of great things. We just have to get adjusted to it all and hopefully the new school is going to let me be involved like I was at her last school. I enjoyed helping out everyday and being able to know the people that are with her every day.
I'll be back later today or tomorrow with updates and pictures. Hope you have a great day!

Hand painted EMBOSSED JARS

I have started with recycled embossed jars. Each jar has embossed markings, cups and oz around it. I have primed the lids and then painted onto them. The lid has been sealed well and should only be wiped with a cloth to clean...do not immerse it in water. The jar can be washed in water without the lid. I have tied a homespun bow around the top of the jar and added a tag.

Each jar measures 4 1/4" x 3 1/4". Shipping is by priority mail and is 3 lbs. Insurance is an additional $1.70.

Price for 1 set of 2 jars (either Raggedy set or Gingerbread set): $14.99 plus shipping. The Raggedy set is filled with potpourri and the Gingerbread set if filled with peppermints.

I will take custom orders on these jars. I have a limited supply of them left though.
