Published Paper Doll!!!

Pink Cupcake
I got published!!!! :)

I sent a few of my cupcake liner paper dolls to "Art Doll Quarterly" magazine last summer.  I got an email from Jana in November from the magazine letting me know that they were going to publish it this February.  

 I was super excited to receive my complementary copy today!  The article talks about who I am and what I do.  They even called me a mixed media artist lol!!  This has been a really fun experience!  In the article it also talks about my obsession with my Catherine Moore stamps that I use to make all my dolls.   I love Catherine and her doll stamps:)

This is a couple of the other paper dolls I had fun making too.

Maranda's room

Maranda's Room 
This is my little Maranda's room.  It is finally finished.  I love this room!  My girlfriend Kasey had custom made a bedroom set similar to this for Jennifer, another girlfriend of ours.  I fell in love with it! 
My mother in law also helped out with the work load and made the beautiful bed skirt and gorgeous balloon curtains.  The curtains were an act of love to make I assure you! lol!
Maranda decided to put on her party dress and pose for a picture:)
Thanks again Kasey and Cindy for your awesome work!!!!

A few of my favorite things!

A few of my favorite things!
I got some exquisite handmade gifts from some of my best girlfriends this Christmas!
 Leslie took a lot of time (I am so flattered) to make me this sewing book.  She is Ruth Rae  Jr.
 She kept having me pose for pictures lately but I didn't know what she was up to.
 I love this new book with all of it's great little pockets.  I will be able to use it for my scissors, threads, seam ripper, etc.  Thank you Leslie!  I love it and you too!
Holly made me this bracelet after I drooled all over her sister Amy's wrist looking at one she made similar for her!  I love this and wish the picture did it justice for just how beautiful it is!  I wear it all the time!!!  Thank you Holly XOXO
