Izannah Updates

Here are my two cloth Izannahs - sorry for the blurry photos (again!). Camera charge has run out so I'll have to take some more later.

My First Izannah

She's all cloth and has been crackled and distressed within an inch of her life.

Cutie Cupies

Just finished these two cupies (one is more of a pixie). The pixie is the one with the needle felted flowers, embellished with beads and then handsewn to blue ribbon, tied around her waist. I used paperclay for their hair. I've made them in a Frozen Charlotte style.

The UFO's Have Started

I've put my princess on hold while I finished this little doll, so yes, I now have a UFO (un-finished object), which I promised myself when I started this blog I would never do. Hah! I will finish her, but not by the 30th Di, sorry. I have a real fondness for small dolls and this little one sits in the palm of my hand. Her little friend is an elephant made from felt. Painting her little features was extremely enjoyable - I even ignored the husband's feedback that he now knows what I'll look like when I'm 100 (greying hair pulled back, still wearing my flannel pyjamas and squinting through my old-girl glasses - very sexy image huh?). Anyway, he'll keep. I've had an ebay site for a couple of years now (lillys_dolls_and_fine_art) - haven't used it for 2 years so I thought I'd get back into it and list this little one as an auction. Cross your fingers!

Little Princess

My current project! I bought some fine copper wire at our local market and thought I'd try a bit of crochet and came up with this little tiara, which I thought needed a little person to wear it. So here she is sans clothes!

My First Etsy Listing

My first etsy listing - the toy basket!!

Monday, August 3, 2009

Lovin' the creative juices!

Just a few of my works in progress. I plan to list these on my Etsy as I complete them. The jester needs bells, a few more stitches for my little dunce boy and something to hold in Cherry's basket. I plan to sell the pattern for the jester on etsy and I'm currently creating another two - one in blue and white and the other in black and white. I'm on annual leave for all of next week (yahoo buckaroo) and so there will be no excuse not to complete them. I hope it rains so then it will be guilt free indoor pleasure.

Day 1 - My First Entry

Well, this is my first entry for my Blog! I thought I'd never get my act together to do this. I'm so excited my usually good typing skills is letting me down. I'm hoping to keep this updated on a very regular basis - I'll try not to get too beyond myself and aim for once a week at this stage. The photos I have included are of dolls which I have created a long while ago and have now been re-homed internationally. I'll be recharging the camera to take photos of my current completions who are living with me and my works in progress. Talk to you all soon.
