 Grin I just received my stepsons doll from snazzlecraft and he is perfect! I really wanted a waldorf style doll for Sage but I was too intimidated to make one myself. He has blonde hair and blue eyes to match my sons (action photos to come in a month when I see him). He also came with a snuggly blanket, two bedtime story books (Aesop's Fables and The Ugly Duckling), a matching set of pjs for Sage (!), and patterns created by Snazzlecraft for the doll!

I received my tiny house of awesomeness today and I am in love with it!

A cozy fairy like house in the woods

(The little red ball is actually a teeny bell)

Getting to know the neighbors

The tiny person inside must be working deep into the night

Human perspective

I thought about putting it in my kids' room as a night light but I love it too much, it'll relocate to the neighborhood that is my craft room

36  Brobee plushie in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by RougeRaven on: January 02, 2009 01:12:41 PM
My sister's best friend graduated and I some got suckered into making her present. She is obsessed with Yo Gabba Gabba (she's 19, by the way) so I made her a Brobee doll. I admit, he's pretty cute but he was a real pain in the ass to make. I made the pattern myself and he is made of felt, but because I didn't want to show any of my seams I had to sew him inside out. I had to fold his limbs to fit inside the space of his body in order to attach them, which was the hardest part. They are perfectly aligned, but that's how handmade stuff goes. I'll never make another one, but I am pleased with how he turned out.

His mouth is attached with Velcro so he can wear his happy or sad face

After a long break I have more pages to show you, some from my old altered book and some from my newest one  Smiley I'm addicted to these things:

Old book for my man:
This is the introduction page of the different "faces of Dave" that I posted a long time back. My mother-in-law sent me home with a tiny pack of cards last August, so I encorporated some of the male face cards in this page.

Part 1 of a 2 page spread, focusing on a specific walk in the woods I took with Dave.

Part 2

New Book:

I wanted to sign up for the tiny house swap but I couldn't contain myself any longer so I started a new book to satisfy myself

This was actually the first page I did. I had seen a tiny house "of cards" and it inspired me. I had planned to just cover the page revealed by the cut out with cards but then I got the idea of transforming the Queen of Hearts card into a sort of Virgin Mary/Virgin de Guadalupe shrine, so I added the scared heart onto her. Then I played off the idea of the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, so then I did the "painting the roses red page."

I wanted to tie in the rose theme and bring the four pages together with the War of the Roses

This is the latest felt name book I made for my oldest, Ceilidh (Kaylee). I would normally only post a couple of pics and then link to my blog, but I'm trying to mess around with image resizing so please bear with me.

Cover- full skein of thread in chain stitch on lace patterned pink felt

C is for candy

E is for egg

I is for island

L is for lamb

I (again) is for ice cream

D is for our dog

H is for hat

So I got way behind while I was at my mother-in-laws but today I caught up on a bunch of themes, sort of combined into four pages

This started as my architcure page and also works as my hiding place. If you remember, I did a page dedicated Dave being in the Army. He's been having health problems and is being discharged because of them, so I had to write a note to him regarding these things. The window hides the letter but it's pretty personal so it is shut for the photo.

The last couple of weeks have been really hard on us and we just found out that the insurance won't cover a week hospital stay so that sparked this part of the spread. This sits next to the window page so I carried the greens over. The leaves are from a stencil I got at Joann's on sale. I covered the majority of the page is tracing paper but it tore a bit while I was smoothing it out. Since it tore over a leaf, I just cut around it so it stands out. Finally, I cut corner decorations out but I don't what to do on the page behind this one since it'll show through.

This is a WIP for my myth 2 page spread. I think I am going to write out a very short verision out on a long strip of paper and fold it accordian style and putting in the lower right corner.

This took the longest out of the four; I struggled finding the right kind of waves but I found these on sale at Joann's and they were perfect. I love this page.

40  Doodle Stitching Raccoon in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by RougeRaven on: August 22, 2008 02:05:32 PM
Is it just me, or do other people's male significant others request plushies a lot? Dave was flipping through my Doodle Stitching book by Aimee Ray and had to have the raccoon. What tends to happen is he'll ask me to make him something and then the kids claim it. Without further delay, the plushie:

The only major differences are I didn't put the detail on his stomach and the split stitching all around is a different brown since it's all I had.
