Peaceful Weekend

I've had such a good son and his sweetie were home this weekend. We watched movies and chatted most of the weekend away! It's always so good to see them. Our neighbor's son celebrated his 15th birthday this weekend too. He asked permission to use our back yard for a bonfire could we resist? He was in the backyard bright and early Saturday gathering downed limbs and branches to build up the was great. Not only did we get to play host for his party, but we also have a nice clean back yard! hee hee :-)

I've been playing around with a sweet little angel this week...I just finished her today.

I have had fun using my artist pencils lately. I love to try new things and I just love the soft look I get from the pencils. Her Heart is all embroidered in colored floss that coordinates so well with her outfit. I'm going to have a hard time letting this little angel fly away to her forever home! :-)

Wishing you sweet dreams....Susan

My Easter Dollie

I promised my little Easter dollie and here she is...Bonnie!

I worked on her outfit most of the day yesterday and put the finishing touches on her Easter bonnet this morning. I love the Debbie Mumm Easter fabric in her jumper, don't you? I bought this fabric a couple of years ago, but I must have put it in the stash bin with all the other blue fabric and forgot about it! What a great find for little Bonnie here!

Well, Bonnie is exhausted from sitting in the studio for her photo shoot all morning so she is taking a little kitty cat nap this afternoon. BUT she'll be up and ready for her debut on Ebay this evening! I hope you'll be able to stop by...Hugs--Susan

Wednesday, January 21, 2009 time!!

Boy, oh boy, does it ever feel good to be busy in the studio again! I'm putting the finishing touches on some sweet Springtime dollies and I just finished up this sweet little Angel - Irish Blessings Angel! She's listed on Ebay this week - ending Sunday January 25th.

Stay tuned for my Easter sweetie ...I think she might be making her debut on the blog tomorrow afternoon! :-) Have a blessed evening...Susan

Whew...what a week!

Has this week been as busy for you as it has for me so far? (giggle) I have been working diligently on my dollies and finished three to offer on the Mercantile tonight! I'm so pleased with the way these three gals turned out...I hope you'll be able to take a peek.

I really wanted to finish up one of my more whimsical angels for Ebay this week, but it's taking a little longer than I had hoped to get back into the swing of things after the holidays. They are coming right along though and I will surely be ready for at least one to be offered on Ebay by Sunday.

Well, it's been a long day..I hope you are well and wish you a blessed evening...Hugs-Susan

Happy 2009!

WOW...I can't believe how long it's been since I posted here! Our family had such a nice long holiday together. It was great to spend so much time with the kiddos during their break. By the end of a three week vacation though, they were ready to get back into their routines and start classes again!

My in-laws weren't able to come down for the holidays because of that crazy ice storm that hit the Midwest. It was weird not to have them with us on Christmas morning...I think this is the first year in almost 10 years that we haven't spent Christmas with them. They were able to come down for a quick 3 day visit this weekend and it was great to visit with them. For them, it was a nice break from all that winter weather too!!

Well, I'm back in the studio today and looking forward to working on my dollies. I have 8 or 9 dolls in various stages of completion that I have been tinkering with over the past few weeks. I'm hoping to have someone finished in time for the Mercantile update on the 15th and possibly one for Ebay too! I'll keep you posted...

Okay...I'm off to be creative! I wish you a blessed day and hope you are safe and warm today...hugs--Susan
