Vacation! Day 2!
Day One was mostly a rest day, but on day 2 my mom and I spent at least half the day trying to decide whether to quilt or make dolls! I have brought my doll making things with me to make some dolls that I have been wanting to make for quite some time and had not because I was so busy paper crafting instead. Well, finally we decided on the dolls! I had brought a couple books with me that also had a couple "doll" patterns in them, so Mom decided she wanted to make one of them. I traced out the patterns for her, she cut them out, and sewed one up! I do not have my camera with me, but I will get a picture for you to see it somehow because it is one of those things you just have to see to believe! ROFL!!! Words just cannot describe this work of art!
So, when I get the pics I will post them on this post right here for all to see! Now don't get me wrong! The finished doll body is not my mother's doing but it was the pattern we used! You really must see this to believe it!
Today, Day 3, I am going to draw out my own pattern for mom and myself to use. We'll see how that turns out!
Have a great day everyone! And wow! I really miss paper crafting already!
This is the sock monkey I had Lynn of "Handmade Creations by Lynn", to make for my granddaughter. I made a flower for her head and a cute tu-tu for her to wear. I love how she has turned out :o) I think Jasmine will love her too don't ya think?!

My heart feels such great sadness and such heaviness to see this country, the place that I have called home for all of my life, turn into a place that I can barely recognize any more. Considering that true, honest, hard working, Americans have sacrificed so very much for the freedoms that we see being taken from us by our own government, no less, on a daily basis. And with each new election of government offices we find ourselves governed by those who work against the further building of this once great, unified nation, but rather they only seek to tear down all that is good, and honorable. Stomping under their own feet the blood, sweat, agonizing tears of loss that help to build this country to the great nat…
This sweet li'l 4x4 mini album is made using Graphic 45's "Once Upon A Spring Time" paper line. Find more detail on this project Here.
This is a special 4x4 mini album I made to sell. Special because I designed a holder for it to sit in with velvet jingle bells for the feet! You will find more about this project HERE.
This is my very first completed Family Recipe Album! The papers are by "Webster's Pages". Although it was a bit of a challenge, I created this stand for it to sit in on my kitchen desk top. I just luv the mason jar tag I created especially for this mini. You will find more details on this project here.
I created the adorable Christmas album below as a gift for my sister. I was so pleased how it turned out for her. I used Basic Grey's Jovial paper line and stickers. It contains some of my own hand drawn designs in it such as the snowman with the red top hat on and the snowman peeking from behind the santa pocket with felt accents on his…
