little queenie



New little Queen Anne - she is dressed in one of my favorite fabrics which I hoard for special projects - can't see  well in the photos but it is an amazingly rich red - beautiful and I must admit that this little Queen  is a bit homely - so figured she needed a really nice dress.  She is going to be a Christmas gift to my sister Bonnie - I think she will like her.

Nana my Nana Angel
is on her way to her new home in LA -  thank you Karen and hope you love her,

Halloween



Here are a few more Halloween creations I did this year,  a collecter in Minnesota - bought three of my Halloween items - Thank you Krista - not only is she a collector but she operates an Artist Gallery, I so appreciate her Patronage.

BEEN BUSY


Juse wanted to add a few photos of my latest works, I have been very busy but been able to find some time to do some fun Halloween projects.  Above is  another set of Izannah sisters that have gone to a collector in Illinois - Mavis and Mercy were so fun to make - my first with bare feet - which I thought were going to be a breeze, wrong, but they turned out okay, their dresses are wonderful fall inspired prints - I was so very happy how they turned out. They are very pretty and serene girls.

Julia my Redone Queen Anne


I did Julia a  couple of months back and really did not like her costume so I just redid her and I must say she is soo much happier in clothing that more reflect her sweet and gentle nature.

Honor waiting for her groom



Back in June I made an Izannah inspired Bride - Honor who went to a private collection in New Jersey,
Barbara, Honor's owner felt that she was missing something and had me make her a groom.  He was a blast to make and I was able to give him all the attributes that insures that he will be a good husband.  I hope that they have a long happy union.

Mimi and Louise

These sweet girls are on Ebay right now - looking for a good home, they want to stay together
forever.

They are sisters and I named them after two of my favorite aunts. If you know me you might ask why not name them after some of your own sisters - I mean there is Bonnie, Judie and Jill - well I am just not good enough yet in my dollmaking to honor those incredible women.

OLIVIA

My sweet Pumpkin Headed Doll - she was so much fun to make and design - and she has such a wonderful character - I know that may seem strange but as I make my dolls I kind of get to know them more and more as they evolve.  I have always been a bit fearful of creating a Chucky - Yikes.

Anyway here is Liv the pumpkin head:

Ysabel


I dropped my peasant angel Ysabel at the post office this morning, she is going to a new owner in Maryland,
which is good - Ysabel loves blue crabs cooked in Old Bay Seasoning, but as she has watched over me for a couple of weeks - I will miss her. 

I think I need to do another angel - I liked have an angel watch over me.
