Just a quick post!

I actually made this doll last fall and had her on ebay but she didn't sell. I packed her away in a halloween bag (of course!) and now she's listed again. I hope by getting her on early she'll sell this year. I really like making these king of dolls and want to make a few this season.

Been really busy making stuff. I tatted some trim to use on fall dolls and crocheted some trim using eyelash yarn to trim paper gift bags. I thought I'd have a go at making them for something different. I also have 4 more paper mache pumpkins I'm working on. They're a lot of fun to make!

Still working on a fall tree lady. The wood base is giving me way too much trouble. I tried crackle but it was too humid and it wouldn't work, then I tried mod podging skeleton leaves but the mod podge was old and wouldn't dry. So now I scrubbed off all the old stuff and am going to try crackle again with a new bottle of crackle medium. This picture shows the leaves before I put a coat of mod podge on. All it did was bubble and smell awful.
