1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Dotees - Mini Art Dolls - Round 9 Send Out 4/19/10 on: May 17, 2010 07:07:05 PM
Hey everyone! Sorry we didn't post our dotee process sooner, but we were out of the city for a few days helping family with a yard sale. Smiley Smiley We really wanted to do a series of dotees using a mix of materials. The arms & legs were wooden dowels cut, painted, & glittered. To create the bodies we strung beads, sequins, & found objects onto wire & wound them into a 'ball'. We placed a small bird in the center of each dotee to represent a free-spirited soul. The eyes were drawn & coloured by hand, glued to colour-aid paper & laminated.

Unlike Martha Stewart, we do not have a laminating machine in our craft room so we had to bring the eyes into a printshop...& that is were things went disastrously wrong! Instead of placing the eyes spread apart, they were placed way too close & were laminated overlapping each other making them unable to be cut out!!! This was the Monday of send-outs & since we planned to attach the eyes & send by days end we were screwed! Thanx to our partners for being so patient while we remade our dotee heads & we are so glad you all enjoyed them!!! Smiley Smiley

I so apologize!!  I am having camera issues--learning curve on my new hosting site! Sad

No rush!!! Smiley Smiley We just want everyone to see the series before we explain them.

Just thought we would go ahead & post a pic of the dotee we sent minowisbitt8lo.


As soon as alwaysinmyroom has a chance to get a pic up, we will fill everyone in on our dotee making process! Smiley Smiley

Here is the "creative" dotee we received from Smmarrt!!! Grin Grin We love that the 'person' is upside-down because one of us (G.) spends a lot of time upside-down doing pole dance! Thanx so much Smmarrt!!!


It is awesome to see our little dotee collection budding & can see how this swap could be addictive! Smiley Smiley

Almost finished with this round. We have one missing person in Group 5 but since we were a group of 5, always and I have voted to just shine it on. Alterna and Destined - what do you think?

We're fine with moving on with things. We received 3 wonderful dotees & we are happy with that! Smiley Smiley

Smmart--did Destined to fail post the dotee you sent them?  I was wondering if you did a theme with our group... Cheesy

We just got it today & we will have a pic up soon! For whatever reason it took forever to travel here!

OMG!!! Shocked Shocked Finally had a chance to check in as things have finally calmed down a bit here (apparently we have lives we weren't aware of) & planned to comment on all the dotees, but we would just be typing "amazing" a 1000 times!!! Everyone really thought out-of-the-box & came up with some incredibly creative designs! So many different body shapes & materials; WOW!

Also, can't believe that AlternaWidget received already!!! Really glad you like it! Smiley Smiley As soon as everyone of our partners receives we will tell all of you about the disaster that prolonged our sending.

...& a round 10 already!!! Dotees non-stop! Cheesy Cheesy Can't wait for our last 2 to arrive!!!

Hey, everyone! Sorry we've been a bit absent from the threads, but we have been so busy this week (1 of us started a new job & 1 is preparing for a dance performance on Friday). Smiley Smiley Our dotees are ready to go tonight or tomorrow after we finish the last of the repairs. We were ready to send Monday, but had given our dolls to a 3rd party so they could do something to them (something that we could not do ourselves at home) & they destroyed a major part of all our dolls!!! Angry Angry All of our partners will be informed as soon as we send.

Thanx so much AlternaWidget!!! Smiley Smiley
