I only have earrings up at the moment.  However, when I get more time, I'll put up other things I make, such as notecards and domino pins.

Meanderingchaos gave me the go-ahead to post the photos of the items I sent to her:

First, I sent a wreath.  I tied on a bow and glued a skeleton to it.  I attached a tombstone with a skeleton below it and put another skeleton at the top.  I also wired and glued a halloween rat to the top and put a santa hat on him.  Lastly, I wrapped a piece of twine around the wreath (halloween-ish garland) and sponged red paint onto the evergreen to look like blood.  You can see that better in the second photo.





Here are some ornaments I made using halloween "cauldrons," twigs from a xmas swag, and bones from a wooden skeleton with red spronged on.  One has a full skeleton as well:



Lastly, another ornament I made by tweaking the idea of the classic pipecleaner snowflake:

I received my package from PuddinPants today and she send me lots of great stuff.  First, you see the cute little ornaments that she painted.  They look great on my black Nightmare Before Xmas tree (not pictured):



Next, is my personal favorite, the stocking.  I especially love the beaded fringe around the cuff:



The next photo is a collection of things she sent.  It's all excellent.  I think the doll is fantastic, and she said this is her first time working with a doll.



Not shown (these were extra things, that she didn't make, that she was sweet enough to include): a Halloween bear candy dish, a pair of little witch earrings, and a magic towel

How tall is she?

She's about 15 inches.

And, yep, that's a little ring on her finger!

Here are photos of the doll qbmaya sent to me.  I love it.  She looks sooo much like one of my friends (before she cut her hair).

Thanks you two!  Cheesy

She would also be considered a recon.  I bought this wooden victorian doll and spray painted her off-white.  Decoupaged some newspaper on her.  Sewed on a skirt.  I'm not sure the name of the fabric I used but it's like a really light, soft, loosely woven burlap.  Stitched permanent "wrinkles" into the skirt and stitched antique cotterpins to the underside of each wrinkle.  Made some arms for her out of eye screws and floral wire.  The mask is made from shrinky-dink plastic (cut three times too big, baked, and then immediately pressed against her face to make it the right shape), covered in double stick tape, and dipped in clear microbeads.  Cut a floral butterfly in half and glued it to her (jamesdean expressed a love for "wicked fairies" so that's what I was going for).  Painted her hair, eyes, and mouth.  She came attached to the metal base when I bought her.

She's pretty fragile.  That's why I had the people at Mail Boxes Etc pack her.  I was nervous.

I love all the other doll so far!

Well, according to UPS, jamesdean's doll should have arrived to her on Wednesday, but I haven't heard anything from her, so I'm gonna post photos anyway. 









She took a lot of time to do...especially the hand-sewing of the skirt with the cotterpins on it.

topolino..neat recon, did you make her a new dress or dye her original one?

I dyed her original one.  However, what made it really hard was that it doesn't come off of her!  While there may have been better ways to deal with it, I ended up "coloring" it with fabric pens and "painting" on Rit dye.  While I didn't get it perfect (you can see where the rit bled thru on her panties), I think I did a respectable job considering the challenge Tongue

Here are some photos of the doll I sent to hookin flamingo.  I've also included a "before" photo.  I did this doll this way cos she specifically requested a "re-designed" babydoll...so I bought a doll and did her over  Tongue

I'm anxiously waiting to hear that jamesdean got the other doll cos I look forward to putting up photos of that one!
