Christmas already???

Sorry I've been away for so long! I have been making some holiday dolls for those holiday craft show applications!

Here is a sneak peek of some of what I've been working on...

These are little ornament dolls that I make for my holiday shows. They are really cute and sell really well. They are about 7" tall. I'm also making tree-toppers. Can you believe it is that time of year already???

And congratulations to Penny - she won the doll giveaway! She is a fellow dollmaker (and very talented artist). Check out her blog, Art Journey you won't be sorry!


This is my first giveaway, and I'm very excited! All you have to do is either leave a comment or become a follower and I'll randomly pick a winner. Make sure you have contact info in your post. I couldn't decide on one doll, so the winner can choose from three dolls.

This first doll I call "Waiting on a Friend." She is about 9" tall and sits on a vintage tea cup.

The second doll is primitive mixed media doll. She is 13" tall and holds a nest with some needle-felted eggs inside. Her body is made from a paper cone. She'd be a great tree topper!

The third doll is a birdcage doll. She has pink hair and wings!

If you have a blog of your own, please feel free to post about my giveway...the more the merrier! The contest will end on Saturday, September 15th.

Santa...and a little recycling

Well, it is my first Santa of the season!

I have this guy listed on Ebay starting be sure to check him out along with my other auctions (ebay seller: hoperayeldolls or click the link in the sidebar).

I've also been doing a little recycling...

This little gal has a glass bottle as a stand. Her dress is made from shredded plastic grocery bags.

This is my newspaper doll. She has a plastic 2 ltr bottle as a stand.

Some people do meditation to relax. Some do yoga. I glue thousands of little pieces of newspaper on fabric to make a dress.

On WEDNESDAY of this week I'm going to be doing my first giveaway!!! I'm really excited, so please stop by for your chance to win one of my dolls. Hope to see you Wednesday!
