Hello Blog mates!
It's been that long since I last blogged, I'd
almost forgotton how to do it!
Hope this finds you all well and happy.
I haven't been doing much craft-wise apart from the
obligatory family and friends' greeting cards.
I did buy some fabric a few months ago though
from the Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements range
I bought the 'charm pack' 5" x 5" little squares
and it's totally lush.
Then I couldn't decide what to do with it and it
sat on my desk for ages and ages.
I finally decided it'd make great little outfits
for paper dolls - what else would it be for me!!
So I busily got to work and made
ten lovely mixed media dolls.
I'd often thought about opening an Etsy shop but never did -
these little dolls I made gave me the push to go ahead.
I'm useless at self promoting as it feels so un-natural to me.
However, the deed has been done so here's the link
If the link doesn't work (when you click on the pic)
there's a link near the top of my side bar.
I've called the shop 'GemstonePaperDolls'
because as well as loving making paper dolls,
I've also been buying a lot of genuine gemstones recently to
be made up into jewellery - although I don't know how
long that's going to take me to get around to!
Got to start somewhere though I suppose.
I'll leave you with one of the dolls - she is actually
wearing a tiny little coral gemstone around her neck.
Her boots are real leather -
an upcycled old purse of mine.
Thanks for looking -
I'll try not to leave it so long next time xx
