4 days til "You Bazaar"

As most of you may already know, I've been busy sewing and making a ton of dolls for upcoming craft shows. I've also had my hands full with the pups, hanging out with my family and throwing my annual Halloween party for all the kiddies! I'll take a nap in December when I get a chance ;D
Getting ready for all the shows has been alot of work and alot of fun. Craig has been working on my display for me and hammering buttons onto my baby bibs! What a good helper! I can't wait to go to San Francisco for "You Bazaar". I think it will be a great event-so if you're in the area please stop by!

Here's Truman-inator! He's getting really good at photo shoots so I thought I'd include this photo of him.

Here's Nixon Puppers! He just had surgery on his paw yesterday and he's showing me his bandage....what can I say! He's a genius! He had a rough day so we're trying to spend as much time with him as possible.

Here are some pictures of my dolls that will be off to San Francisco with me. My workroom is usually not this hectic, but cleaning has been the last thing on my mind.

I'm a mad woman!! I can't stop making dolls!!

So I'll be leaving for the Bay area super early Friday morning! My wonderful assistant Tiffany (the panda) will be my companion on this trip-so I'm sure we'll have alot of random, fun photos in future posts!
Until then....

Hansel and Gretel...and a Viking?

So I've been working away and getting ALOT of dolls made. Every now and then I'll stray away from my checklist of dolls and make something very spontaneously. So here's what I came up with:

Hansel and Gretel. Let me just say that even my husband loved these dolls. I believe he used the words, "so cute!"
Hansel looks alot like Fredrique from The Sound of Music (one of my favorite musicals). Here is a list of my top 5 favorite musicals:
1. Little Shop of Horrors (which inspired my "Nerd" doll)
2. Sound of Music (who doesn't love families that sing and dance?)
3. Chicago (I like the sassiness and all the attitude)
4. Chorus Line (there's a character in the movie named Kristine...and she's tone-deaf....great!)
5. Sweeney Todd (who wants a meat pie?...not me)
I digress....
Here's Gretel.
Here is the Viking. There's this Snickers commercial where a viking, a pilgrim and two other characters are in a car driving and singing "Greensleeves" know, "Alas, my love, you do me wrong, To cast me off discourteously."
For some reason, I love this commercial ;)
Okay, well I'm done for the day and I'm going to spend some quality time with the doggies....until next time!
