Percy Ann doll bodies

I have decided to try something new with my dolls.  I am going to start offering some premade dolls...stuffed, stained and the face painted.  All you'll need to do is the hair and outfit.  Here's my first offering....

5 Percy Ann doll bodies (stuffed and stained with painted face)

$65 plus shipping
shipping can be priority, first class or international first class

Just email with Percy Ann in the subject line if you're interested in having these made for you.  If you're interested in any other doll body just email and I'll be glad to give you a quote on making them.

Some of the other dolls are on ebay now and I'll be listing more on there tonight. 

Lots more new things to come including painted items.  I am trying to finish up those patterns too but have to find some things to do that so I'll post as soon as I have them done.

Just wanted to share a picture of Savannah's first day of school which was last Monday....as usual I'm late in showing it...I should have the nickname THE WHITE RABBIT...lol.  The sun was glaring to the top but it turned out really pretty anyway.  Her last year in middle school.  Hopefully it will be a great year for her.  She is in honors classes and hopes to get some credits for high school completed this year.  Would be great to be ahead to possibly get some college ones done in high school.  These days it's great to have an advantage on any of it you can.  We are very proud of her. 

I am going to have some new dolls to show later today that are all one of a kind.  I have lots to finish dressing before I start on other new patterns.  I am still trying to complete the Pepper Ann and bagholder patterns and will post them just as soon as they're done. 

I am interested in making doll bodies and painting faces.  That is something I enjoy in the doll making process and would love to give you a quote if you're interested in having that part done.  Just email if you're interested and we can discuss further.

Hope you have a great day and I'll be back later today with dollies.

sneak peek at August TCC pattern club

* SOLD *  doll available for $30 plus shipping...just email if you're interested

I just finished up this month's TCC pattern club doll...PERCY ANN.  She is sooooo cute in person.  I don't think her picture does her justice.  I will have the pattern template ready later today to mail out to everyone in the club.  This month's bonus is some stitchery words that I drew out for fall. 

 If you'd like to join there's a button on the left sidebar for the current 3 month period.  Next month is going to be a cute elf Annie. 

I am working on the bagholder Annie pattern and Pepper Ann.  I will post as soon as I have them ready.  Lots of other goodies in the work but due to me hurting my back over the past weekend I'm running behind again.  I guess those old sayings of you fall apart when you turn 40 are really true.  This has been a heck of a year for me having problems it seems.  I just thank the Lord that none of them have been too serious...just things that needed time to heal.  I'm hoping the rest of this year will be better and I can really start to make some unique one of a kind items that have been on my mind as well as continue to make my patterns.  I would LOVE to get back to my exercising too but have to be careful with my shoulder.  My Zumba is calling me every day...I may have to try to sneak in a little today...I really miss it....lol.  I am really in love with papercrafting too so I will start selling some of my handmade cards and items very soon too.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Annie lamp...update & sneak peek

Just thought I'd share the finished project I showed the shade for last week.  This past week has absolutely flown by for me with so much to do for school and all.  It starts Monday and I am very close to done other than a painted canvas bag and some decorated book covers.  I am hoping to finish up my August TCC pattern club doll the first of the week.  I also have two patterns I'll be releasing this week.    The one is the bagholder I seem to have been talking about forever and the other is the Annie below.  I have lots of large wooden sleds ready for me to paint on and lots of other goodies to paint as well as LOTS of dolls ready to dress.  I hope to start having lots of new goodies to see very soon.  I'm in a Fall & Christmas mood as well as shabby chic so there will be lots of variety...maybe even some gingerbread and saltbox houses...oh and sheep.  If I only had more hours in the day...lol.  See you again soon and hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!
