I'm Back!

Well its been a while :P

I havn't been on my poor blog since february!! doesn't seem like its been that long but time has been flying by since i found out i'm expecting another little baby in november :)

Since being pregnant i havn't been feeling too great and have had no energy what so ever so had to put the dolls down for abit and just relax!...well i havn't relaxed much! i've been sorting everything out and moving furniture, getting rid of junk to make room for baby etc and finally got most of it sorted now and i'm feeling sooo much better! and i'm starting to feel myself again :) So i decided to start another little art project! I'm hoping to get back to my dollys soon but for now i'm doing little bits to get back into the swing of things and have came up with these lovely primitive wands! i made one for my daughter one today and she loves it!

So i thought i'd pop it on etsy and see if theres any interest of other people wanting a personalized wand :)[0]=tags&%3Bincludes[1]=title

Anyway just a quick update as more poor blog was looking so neglected! :P i even had to give it a new background as the other one had been removed by photobucket it was so old haha!

Even though it is still february I have already bought and eaten my fiance Jamie's easter egg!! Ooops hehe

Easter isn't until April 4th but i've already came up with a few ideas and couldn't resist making a little easter bunny today!

I started thinking of some easter dolly ideas and came up with Sunday the little girl who loves bunny ears! She is a tiny cute dolly only 24cms tall! I'm also planning on doing a larger easter dolly too! (nearer the time! :) )

Here are some photos of Sunday :)
Her little fluffy bunny ears are covered in pink fluff on the back and white on the front and they are removable and easy to pop on and off! She loves bouncing around as a bunny and is always very happy!

Anna and Molly the Conjoined Twins!


Its been a while but i finally have full use of my internet again yey!! no more running up to my mams to use hers haha

I have had this idea of making a pair of conjoined twin for a while now and was really excited to try it out and see what they would look like. So this week I created Anna and Molly! Anna is the dark haired twin and Molly is the light haired twin, If you say thier names together "AnnaMolly" its sounds just like the word Anomaly! An anomaly is any occurrence or object that is strange, unusual, or unique, just like a piar of conjoined twins :)

Here they are
They are now for sale in my etsy shop!

Jack in a box!

Hiyah again :)

Here is my first Jack in the box! he's called Jack and is all handmade by me i'm still debating whether or not to list him on Etsy! but i think i like him too much! :) I'm planning on making a few more of these in the near future because i really enjoyed making him :) and i have a few more ideas for my next hehe. He is still not completely finished as i am waiting for a musical movement to come (tomorrow i hope!) and i have to finish his hat! but i couldn't wait to put some photos up to show him off

so here he is!
And here is his hat so far! still needs a bit of stitching and a few bells :P


Work in progress


This is my new project! He is called Vincent and is my very first attempt at making a puppet/marionette! :) he still needs alot of work! but here is a a couple of photos of him! (contains some nudity :P)

He'll be much happier when he gets his wig and clothes on! i have made him a rather fetching top hat so far! but he does need alot more work! tomorrow i'm baby free all afternoon (yey) so i'll get some work done then :) cant wait to get him dressed and strung properly! :)

Introducing Charlotte! :)

This is my new dolly Charlotte ^^

I wanted to make a autumn coloured dolly with lots of reds and greens but i realized i didn't have any green fabric!! soooo i had to improvise and painted some fabric i did have :) so this week i think i'll be investing in some nice green fabric :P although i do like the effect of painted fabric :)

Charlotte is a little smaller than Eloise but just as good at keeping secrets!

Charlotte is now on Etsy with her friend Eloise :)
