How excited are you about a new year?
I'm very excited I have to say.
You get a fresh start and a whole lot of "first's, right?
I don't make New Year resolutions, but rethink what worked for me last year and what could use some change and I go from there.
So this year I want to get better organized with my time as I have a lot more on my plate
and it felt like I was chasing my own tail for most of the time .
Keeping track of everything was a problem too.
I believe I have a bit of ADD as well and get overwhelmed when I have too much in my head and then
everything comes to a halt because I don't know what to do first.
More about that in a later post, when my new customized planner arrives. :)
For now it's easy to keep track and here you see one of my first customs of 2014.
The good thing about the start of the year for me is that the busy time at my day job is over and things calm down and I have any or just a few custom orders lined up.
This here is one of them.
An owl for a soon to be born grandchild.
Yesterday was spend with cutting out fabrics, sewing the parts together...
...stuffing them with soft, fluffy wool.....
....and hand stitching the parts in place and embroidering the face.
This is the finished owl.
I love the leaf fabric. It's so versatile !
There will be a change in the owls this year. I feel they need to be a bit different and
I have already some good ideas.
More about this at a later point as well, so come back and see what 2014 will bring
I'm excited !
Can you believe that the year is now almost over?
It has been a busy one for sure.
These have been the last dolls I made before and for Christmas.
All 3 stayed local. :)
For this sweetie I made clothes in more natural earthy colors .
The bamboo wool is still one of my favorite wool to work with.
I need to find more of it.
And here my last pocket baby for 2013.
Love the orange/purple fabric combinations .
Here now also my last custom 12" cuddle doll for 2013.
He's a little cutie for sure!
I had a custom request for a pirate a few weeks ago and was really looking forward to make him.
I'm happy to introduce to you this little pirate .
His eye patch can be removed and he can show you his pretty grey eyes.
The cutlass and belt are made from wool felt .
Gosh, I had so much fun making him.
I need to make more pirates.....
I also made a pirate out fit for his sister doll.
Dress , eye patch and hat.
My facebook page is very close to 1000 likes .
That is a huge milestone for me and I want to thank everyone who is following me,
by having a give away once I reach that
Since Christmas and the holiday season is getting close , I thought it would be nice to
have the give away for a custom made 12" Velour Cuddle Doll.
You could pick the skin , hair , eye and body color and what color you would like for the clothes
Doesn't that sound like fun?
I need your help so that I can start the give away!
Thank you already !
I appreciate all of you!
