Working with a Pattern which is something I have not done in so so many years.  But, who can resist a Sweet Meadow Farm Pattern by Maureen.

I have been wanting to make some smaller dolls and when I saw this pattern I just fell in love with it.  The funny part about it all is that I feel like screaming I am having the hardiest time putting this little dollie together.  Don't get me wrong the pattern is easy and Maureen gives excellent directions it just me.  I think my problem is that I am trying too hard to make it exactly like the pattern. So hopefully I will have at least two of these girls done by Saturday.

Does using a pattern make one less of an Artist?  I really can not even answer my own question lol at this point it doesn't matter.  This pattern has actually motivated even more to do more things maybe even put together a pattern myself to sell.  Who knows right now I am just going to go back and continue to make these sweet parier girls.  Until next time

Peace and Blessings

Anabell is Ready and Waiting

Happy Tuesday all, A Big hello to my new followers I am sorry that I have not had the chance to greet each of you.  Anabell is finally finished after being set aside for so long.  I will be listing her in my Esty shop this week.  I am thinking I might have to do a groom I have not made a male doll as of yet but it has been on my mind for sometime now to do, sew maybe there could be a groom in the future. 

I had a fantastic weekend and the weather has finally cooled down a bit compared to temps being in the 100's whew.  I am going to get some sewing done today.  I have a Rag Muffin that is in need of some undergarments lol.  She will be making her appearance tomorrow.  Sew I am going to be busy busy busy but not to busy to stop in and say hello.  Have a great day all
Peace and Blessings

Anabell Sneak Peak

Anabells wish after months of being tossed from one corner of my room to the other I decided to finish my first Bride.  I have been working on this doll since last year some time.  My friend Joyce who always have words of encouragement told me not to worry when the time was right it will let me know what direction to take with her.  This is a sneak peak of Anabell.  I will post more about her once I have her all done up.

Also I am still working on my selling Blog, along with that I want to try something that I am just throwing this idea out there for right now which is having a share it or pay it forward day I really don't know what to call it right now but the way that it would work is ............We all have things in our crafting stash or maybe in things that we have collected but you might can't sell it or just don't want to be bothered with selling.  How about if we have a day set aside that you post your item and all the person who wants has to do is just pay for the shipping and it's theirs!  Well tell me what you think

Have a great day all Keep Focused, Stay Motivated, Be Creative
Peace and Blessings

Where Do I Begin

Hello anyone out there?  Well if not I can really under stand it has been so very long since I have posted anything on my Blog.  I really don't have a good answer as to why I haven't been around,  I guess life just got the best of me and with so much going on I just lost track of things. 

I really Miss my Blogging Friends I am going to try hard to catch up on what has been going.  I will be making some changes in the direction of my blog.  I know it will take some time so bare with me.  One of the things that I miss most about my art and I had totally took it for granted was the stories that filled my heart and I was able to share with you all.  During my time away I had stopped doing a lot as far as sewing and dolls was concern and I took that time to reflect on what I truly wanted to do with all the ups and downs of making dolls.  I have to make dolls it is in my soul and it is my Passion it is what makes me Happy for that I will be more energy into doing just that Making dolls and creating stories.  Somewhere out there I hope my Creations touches someone as much as my Creations touches me.  Until tomorrow
Peace and Blessings
