Making Dolls

Hello Friends,
Yesterday my little one was home with a cold. Although I felt bad that he wasn't feeling well, I'm ashamed to say that I had a very productive day because he just watched TV and napped most of the afternoon. Does that make me a bad mom???? I figure I need to take the time when I get it, right?

I'm in the process of making some angel dolls that I will put up for sale on both Etsy and Ebay hopefully within the next few days. I designed the pattern but the funny thing is, I'm not a pro with a sewing machine, so when I put them together every one comes out different. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise because every angel is unique and has such personality. I had to chuckle because I was up late and tired and when I finished painting one of the angels, I thought she resembled Giada from Food Network. So I think that's what I'm going to name her...Giada Angel.

I am attaching photos of the angels...with no wings. And also a photo of my work area after a long day (and night) of doll making. I'm a messy artist, I know.

Thanks for reading and visit me again soon!

Thanks Kim! I listed the angels on Etsy this morning. There is one in particular I am having a hard time parting with. If she doesn't sell by Monday, I told her I would keep her.
I know...I'm crazy!!!
