Santa’s Helpers

I presently have six different dolls all dressed up in Christmas ensembles, and the poor things have nowhere to go.  How about posing for some photos, girls?  Let’s show everyone how cute you all are.  Say cheese!

Even though all six dolls are of different proportions and sizes, I think they all look adorable together, don’t you, too?

While the girls were modeling, I put them to “work” by having them add some Christmas spirit to my studio.  Sugar (Fairyland Pukipuki) and Amelia Thimble brought around the jingle bells so that we all can add our own holiday ring-a-linging.  Patience and Millie (by Kaye Wiggs) made tiny everlasting snowmen, and Rose (Boneka/Effner) brought some  “heart” into the mix.  Ivy, a handmade mohair bear from Warm Heart Bears showed she had some real paper cutting skills.  How cute are those paper snowflakes!  Great job, Ivy!  Even the Christmas stripe-y dachshund carried a wreath for hanging.

We had a fun day today!

Patience’s ensemble (SOLD) and Millie’s ensemble are currently available on my website.  Sugar, Amelia Thimble, and Rose’s will be available this coming weekend and into next week.  Be sure to keep an eye out here and on Facebook if you are interested.

I hope that you are enjoying this first week of the holiday season.  I love this time before Christmas; there’s anticipatory magic in the air.

“Little Frosty”

Millie, my Kaye Wiggs 11″ BJD, is here today to welcome the new week and say hello to you all.  Millie is not minding the frosty weather we are currently “enjoying” in northern Illinois one bit; after all, she is dressed for it, and has a little buddy who was made for this weather.

Millie wears a dress made out of a teeny tiny snowman/Christmas tree print.  This cotton print is from Japan.  French cotton lace that looks like tiny snowflakes edges the hemline.

Millie’s cardigan sweater is knit with a beautiful pine green merino/silk lace yarn.  Bright red holly and leaves are hand embroidered on the cardigan’s front panels.  Bright red glass bead buttons add to the festive feel of this cardigan.

Millie’s cute hat is knit (in the round) with a heavier weight of the same type of green yarn.  I added a wide border of “fur” trim in baby mohair/silk lace yarn.  Just for fun, and because Millie’s personality called for it,  her “fur” pom pom dangles from the top of her hat with a couple of bright red jingle bells completing this fun hat.  Can you hear them jingling?

Little Frosty is needle felted with wool and hand made by me.  He wears a tiny elf hat (knit in the round) that matches Millie’s.  Another bright red jingle bell can be found on the top of his hat.  His features are created with Delica and seed beads which have been carefully sewn on to give him the perfect look.  A tiny yarn “scarf” is looped around his neck.

Millie’s other accessories include a red wool scarf with mohair fringe, bright red rayon tights, and a minty striped bracelet with a heart and bell dangle.

I hope all of you have a great start to the week!  Enjoy!

Christmas Ensemble Availability Dates

Hello, from frosty Illinois.  Boy, we had a good frost last night.  It’s sooo cold here, but it’s very pretty too.  When I look out my windows I see blue sky, frosty white grass, trees of red, yellow, orange, and yes, some are still green.  I don’t think our magnolias will ever give up their green leaves.  I don’t know what they’re thinking! 😮

I spent the last two days getting my 6 Christmas ensembles ready for market.  It was a lot of work, but the majority of it is complete.  It’s a peaceful feeling to have weeks and weeks of work all wrapped up.  I’d love to sit and breathe it in, but I cannot wait to start on something new!

I have decided to offer one ensemble every evening for 6 days in a row.  They will start on November 11 and go through November 16.  The time that the sales page will be live on my website will remain unchanged at 7:00 pm CST.

Here is the order, so you can plan, if you’d like.  As a reminder, I’ll also send out a blog post and Facebook post in the morning on the day each one will be available.

I hope you all have a beautiful day!
