I'm getting very addicted to coffee once again. I'm really going to try not to drink so much of it, but man is it GOOD!
Anyways, I don't know that I've showed this doll I recently finished.
I posted this on FB and a lot of people really like her. She really came along way since I started her. I made this doll completely from my own sketches. The clothes are made from vintage linens. I'm making a few more of these "Gypsy Traveller" dolls.
I've made five bodies and prepared five stands. Once these are done I plan on posting them on Etsy before I become too attached. That's one thing about being a doll-maker that's difficult; you become so attached to the dolls that you make that you don't want to give them up. They become like your babies.
I also completed two chain dolls
This one's name is "Luna" it is a Latin girl's name.
She has black tourmaline beads which are used for protection against negativity, evil spirits etc. I love working with that particular crystal.
Here is a much better close up of the chain itself. These types of dolls are for hanging only.
Here's the next one
I named this doll "Phoebe" which stands for bright moon in Greek. I made this chain to help assist someone with remembering to have fun and not to take life too seriously.
I'm almost done with my Mary Shrine. I never thought I would come close to finishing it, but I am and it's going to go up for sale when it's done.
Till next time,
