FREE pattern with order

I hope you all had a WONDERFUL Christmas!!!! I just wanted to let everyone know that the patterns are all ready to email or mail out now. I have been sick and haven't been able to do much of anything but finally got things all finished up this morning. I am offering a FREE Valentine stitchery heart for all pattern orders placed through January 31st. It was going to be a January special but with this delay I wanted to go ahead and start the special. It's a large heart that will be great with dolls, hanging, as a pillow or sitting inside an old bed spring as a pin keep. I will be back to working on dolls and things very soon and hope to have my new Annie, a snowman and teddy ready soon.

I am still taking orders for my 1 1/2" round tags at a special price of $0.35 each plus shipping with a minimum $5 order. Just email below with TAGS in the subject line of the email if you're interested in having some made.  If you order $15 or more in tags I'll include the free stitchery heart pattern too.

Christmas SPECIAL

All ornaments are on sale for $6.75 plus shipping...can be first class mail or priority...there are 10 of the Annie ones, 8 gingerbead, 2 cows, 4 sheep.  I can add a bow of your color choice to the top of the ornament where it joins the jute hanger.  I can also add a small grubby tag there that can be personalized with a name, date, etc.  Each ornament will come in a glassine bag with a paper topper that you can use to close it up and add the TO/FROM to on the back.  The glassine bag makes the ornament a little bit visible to give the receiver a little glimpse before they open it up.  It would be cute to add a hot chocolate packet too with it and maybe a candy cane.    Above is the picture of all the ornaments and one with a gingerbread one hanging in a tree.  I will add a button below to purchase the ornaments in the US with the option of first class or priority mail.  Just email if you have any questions.  The ornament is 4 1/2".  You'll need to tell me which ornament you want in the INSTRUCTIONS TO MERCHANT note on your payment or email me at the link below with ornament choice in the subject line...


Buy ornament below through PayPal...price includes 1 ornament and shipping.  If you'd like to buy more than one ornament just change the number to how many you want and make payment.   I will refund any additional shipping.  If you'd prefer though just email me above and I can send a request to you from PayPal with the correct shipping cost if you're ordering more than 1.

pick shipping option

I am adding some girl clothes in a new category button under my banner at the top for low combination prices.  If you're interested in any of them just email and I can give you a quote on shipping when you provide me with your zip code.  Will have that set up within the next 30 minutes.

More special priced items coming tomorrow and will also have some free items with purchases over $60 on items already for sell or custom order items.  There will be pictures for those buyers to select what they want from some dolls and things I have on hand as there free item.

TOY SUPER SALE & updates

I'm in the process of putting all the toys at some SUPER bundle prices...just email if you're interested.  I will be listing these on ebay very soon to try to sell if no one is interested.   I would LOVE for these to go into a little girl's hands that would love them so I'm trying to do a good price that will help us both...

I have put SET #1, SET #2 and SET #3 after the descriptions of each picture...I will have the SET prices at the top of the page.

Here's the link to the TOYS page and the link is also at the top under my banner...


Below is my email....

EMAIL ME with TOYS in the subject line


I am going to leave the sale price on the e-patterns until I have these new ones finished.  I haven't had a chance to draw a name on the tag set but will try to get that done tonight and post it on my blog.  I will be giving away one set of tags per week from now until Christmas so every week you order your name will go into a drawing.  I'm hoping to have another Christmas drawing too that all the names from today and all into December purchases will go into.  I'll post more about that as soon as I can.

I'm listing lots of the dolls and things on ebay tonight if we don't get really bad storms so be sure to check those out.

If you're interested in any of the dolls in the stockings I will sell them for $20 each without the stocking.  I am listing them on ebay tonight with the stocking so just email as soon as possible if you're interested in one.
If you're needing something special for someone for Christmas just email.  I am trying very hard to get more pictures and things together so I hope to have new items tomorrow.

Thanksgiving SPECIAL

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I wanted to offer a couple specials through Sunday.  First is an e-pattern (emailed only) special... 3 for $15... just be sure to let me know your choices in the note to merchants section or just email me below with PATTERN CHOICES in the subject line.  If you'd like more than 3 patterns please email me first so I can send a request because it costs me more fees to do it other ways.


The other special is FREE PARCEL SHIPPING on all the finished dolls and pin keeps in various postings below.  If you're interested in a doll just email me at the email link above with ORDER in the subject line.  Just let me know what you're interested in and I'll get a request sent to you.

On the TOYS FOR SALE...if you're interested on any of these done into groupings at a special price just email me and I'll be glad to see what I can do on several of them together.  I will start listing these on ebay in the next day or two so if you're interested be sure to email soon.

ALL ORDERS PLACED TODAY THROUGH SUNDAY will have their names added into a drawing for an assorted set of 12 of my handmade tags...maybe even a little something extra too if I get time.  All orders shipped will be receiving a tag or handmade card in their package too. 

Here's a sneak peek of ornaments I'm working on...these are about 4 1/2".  I am thinking about adding a little homespun bow at the top of some and a button and bow on the Annie one.  I have several of these made already and have others in the works too (chicken, more sheep, saltbox houses, etc.).  If you would like some custom made just email me with CUSTOM ORNAMENTS in the subject line and I'll be glad to get back with you and see what we can come up with.  These ornaments are $9 each and come with a glassine bag to hold the ornament and I will add a topper to the top to close it and you can add the To and From on the back of the topper.  These make great gifts and would be great personalized.  I will add a picture of one package probably tomorrow...

Hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday and just let me know if you need anything custom made for Christmas.  New patterns are almost ready and will be added the first of next week...gingerbread, bunny, new Annies and a bear.

UPDATES and toys for sale

Just wanted to give some updates on things going on...

I have added lots of toys to the TOYS FOR SALE page at the top of the blog (under the banner).  I will be glad to ship by USPS parcel or priority mail and UPS ground.  I can only ship on Mondays for UPS though since I have to go to their store...USPS goes out Monday through Saturday.  I am happy to combine any items to ship together to save money.  Most of these items are in like new condition and some are even new.  If you have any questions on anything just email me below at the link and put what you're interested in the subject line so I'll know what you're emailing about.  I will also have lots of clothes groupings for sale soon too.


I have 3 new patterns coming this week...a new Annie, a gingerbread and a teddy bear.  I will add pictures just as soon as I have them done.

Also, on patterns...I am NO LONGER SELLING TO SPAIN.  I have had various issues with people buying my patterns to trade with others and this is NOT ALLOWED since I own the copyright on my designs and I have not given permission to anyone to trade my patterns.  I've been asked about other things with my patterns as well so I'll go ahead and put that information here too.  I want anyone buying my patterns to be able to make dolls to sell them.  I just ask that you give me credit as the designer and that you don't mass produce them.  I don't allow anyone to make kits or do classes with my patterns either unless they have contacted me to work out an arrangement of them using the patterns in this way.  I would be glad to give a price break on patterns if you are doing classes or kits or something so that those people can legally have the pattern as well.  If you ever have any questions about my patterns please just email and I'll be glad to get back to you on them.  I LOVE making dolls and it is so wonderful to have others love to make them as well so it is really sad to see those who do take advantage of it. 

I will be adding some doll groupings tomorrow or Monday for some Annies and bunnies at low prices...these will be one time only and once they're sold they are gone...just need to clear up some space in my work area so it won't be something I do often.

I am working on lots of new items coming soon...ornaments (both Annies and painted ones), notecards, painted bookmarks that can be personalized as well, personalized ornaments, banners and lots of new dolls.  If you're looking for a special gift for someone I'd be glad to see what I could make you so just email.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'll be back as soon as I have new items ready...

our MACaroni

Just thought I'd update a new picture of our little man...isn't he ADORABLE!!!!  He is 5 months now and I'm guessing around 60 lbs....not sure how big he will be as he hasn't grown into his big feet yet...YIKES!!!  He is really smart and getting better with his behavior but wants to dig a lot lately....those big feet can do some damage that's for sure.  You can see some dirt on his mouth in this picture because I had just caught him digging in my flower beds.  I knocked on the door and he came part of the way up the steps to the porch with that "what...I didn't do anything" look.  I wish I could have gotten a picture of that because it was really cute and you could see the holes in the background behind him.  He has some very unusual things he does too that I've never seen in a dog before.  I think he thinks he is human...lol.  He likes to sit in one of the wrought iron chairs on the porch like a person...very funny to see...I'll have to try to get a picture of that one.  He likes to put his rawhide in the chair too and chew on it with only his back feet on the ground....kind of like someone wanting to prop up at a table or bar top.  He is very comfortable standing on his back feet only and he jumps up, puts his feet on something (a table or shelf) and walks around things like that.  He has become very balanced lately doing it and can even walk around a table like that.  He loves to jump up in my lap when I sit down too and just stay there with his back feet on the ground.  He comes at me to start with almost with his front legs open like he is trying to hug me or something and then stays in my arms like that for a little while...until he starts wanting to chew on me...I must taste good to him because that has been a favorite thing to do for the past 3 months.  He tries to catch things with his front legs too and even uses his front paws almost like hands...it's like they seperate for fingers to work on things he is chewing on.  Lots of excitement around with MACaroni for sure!!!! We really enjoy having him in our family and I look forward to lots of fun times with him....

Here's a custom order doll I've been working on of my Laundry Lindsey pattern....I did a cute basket with stained socks added to it and added one of my handmade tags...hope you like her Lisa....
