Hard to believe it is almost Spring. I can hope, can't I? It has been a very busy year for me. We enjoyed a wonderful night at my daughters talent show. She did a dance routine to the song "Shake It Up"...so much fun for all!
I added some wonderful softie designs to my shop yesterday. Spring designs , of course! I am now working on some new chicks and eggs to add to some baskets!
I hope your Holidays were are wonderful as mine. I feel very fortunate for my sweet family and our good friends. As lucky as I feel, we have had our share of heartache. I was very concerned about this Christmas. My husbands 29 year old son David died October 16Th. He was a gifted musician like his dad. He has a wonderful mother who misses him so deeply, my heart aches for her. It has been so difficult for us all.
But through all of the sadness, we are so thankful for our health, our wonderful little girl Katie...who had a fantastic time today!!
I wish the best for all of my readers and I pray for your families. Peace & Joy to all of you!
I am becoming spoiled!! I have three FREE hours each morning now that Katie is busy with summer activities. I almost don't know how to handle it!!! So I have been sewing and coloring and now painting too. I just had the best time painting this little bride!!
She is painted on a 9"x12" Italian water color paper... I thought about making her a doll at first, then I thought well, why not paint her. Next I want to do a bride with the flower girl...won't that be fun? Well, my "Three Hours" are almost up. If you are interested in a print of this little bride you can find it in my Etsy shop!! www.mommylion.etsy.com
I've spent the past two weeks designing some nesting dolls. I have always loved the little Russian wooden dolls! I started out making three fabric dolls. They I saw my daughter coloring on some brown paper bags with colored pencils...MY Colored Pencils!!! But it looked great!!! So I took some of my coffee/ vanilla baked tags and did a few drawings on them. These are not prints...they are the real thing!!! See what you think.
Oh yeah...I've added a new "Lion image" to the back of all of my 2010 dolls. Just in keeping with my Mommylion theme!!
It has taken me a long time to make doll patterns, but I have finally finished and listed a few of your favorites!! Now you can make your own plush bunny doll! And the Plush Pumpkin Halloween Doll. http://www.etsy.com/shop/mommylion
It's a great time to start your holiday gifts. Now you can make your own dolls for gift giving, displays, and craft shows!! Just please remember to give credit to Mommylion for your design!!
I hope you all had a wonderful and safe Fourth! My husband set up a tent in our backyard for a sleep out night. Our little Katie was so excited! We had a BBQ complete with toasted Marsh mellows...Boy, I had forgotten just how good those are!! Have you had some lately...they shoot you right back into childhood!!!
I got to work on my dolls for a few minutes when they went to sleep. But then our new Pit Puppy got very unhappy when she couldn't stay out with them. So off to bed for all of us!
Here is a little Raspberry Bear that I got to finish. Just listed her in the Shop! Happy Summer!!
