Hello! I am SO excited to show you this little creation that has kept me up these past few nights; I've been totally obsessed with her (just ask my husband)!

tA dA!

I can't explain how much fun I had putting this one together - take my word for it, it was a blast! So many artists I love have been making dolls and figures so I thought I'd give it a whirl to see what happened. I have yet to name her so for now she is simply "mAgiCaL #1". She'll be for sale in my etsy shop in just a little while.

In celebration of my 100th etsy sale I'm having a

It's a surprise because I'm not sure yet what I'll be giving away:) It will be handmade by me and that's about all I know. Just leave a comment to this post and your name will go into my little tin bucket. Good luck!

It was a beautiful spring day here in the NC mountains. My neighbor and her baby, and eLijAh and I, took a walk to our little library. It was a nice time but my fair freckled skin got a big dose of the sun, oops!, I forgot my sunscreen! Needless to say, my face, neck and arms are a nice shade of red. It was well worth it since Saturday night we're supposed to get snow.

Hope all is well with everyone! I've got lots of fun Halloween goodies in the works. I've just been a maniac about creating these days so I'm going to list my doll and go back to work, hooray!

iN jOy,

Hi Suz! Well, now I feel like a dunce!!! I thought I was the first but obviously I was mistaken! Apologies to 'Lillian from Anna's Dreams' for trying to usurp your 1st place title! ;) And to complete my embarrassment I managed to post my comment twice!! Nooooooo! How will I ever show my face in blogland again?! Oh well, you gotta be in it to win it right? (Even if you do make a spectacle of yourself in the process!!) :)

Your doll is fun! I know what you mean about parting with dolls, I have a hard time with it also, because I name them and assign them personality traits! I would love to try to win a surprise giveaway, I'm sure it's going to be something wonderful. -Connie

ellie said...

I had to! For my sister, who is also a Halloween nut. Great job! Can't wait to meet her!
Stop making such cool stuff, okay?;)

But I finally got to get out your goods and put around my house and they are all perfect! Thanks so much Suz for making my house look so cute with your art!! xoxo Amy Wingate.
