I have one of those large clear plastic containers with lots and lots of little compartments in it.  Last winter I had such a blast, spending a couple of long days just gathering all of my beads from all over the house and sorting them by color and type and getting them out of the little bags and into the compartments.  So all my beads and findings were very well organized and beautiful to look at. Cheesy

Then last week I dropped the sucker right upside down on the floor.   Roll Eyes

Yeah that was fun!

Ooh, twice!  Twice is more fun than once, eh? Wink

Yeah, I still haven't vacuumed in that room because I just can't bear to, and the dust bunnies are threatening to take over.  Every chance I get, I am on the floor on my hands and knees picking up beads like one at a time.  What can I say?  It's good to keep things in perspective in terms of whether to cry over spilled beads or not, but I need just a little more time before I'm ready to let go and send half my bead stash up the vacuum hose. Wink

Ok, I've finally got some pics!  I've only got 2 right now...as I was taking pictures of my kit, my camera totally died.  I tried to take more with my hubby's camera, but they were all like 5 mb, and crafster won't upload them.  I don't know how to fix that!  We've got like 12 digital cameras, though, so I'm trying to find one that takes smaller pictures, and then I'll get some better pictures up.  Anyway, here goes:


all the beads and fibery goodness!

and here's my doll, and my face.  I'll get a close up of the face to post, it is so beautiful!


Thanks Tiegan!  I love it!  You've really inspired me in the art doll direction.  I know this is going to take me FOREVER, as I'm really not a beader, but I will plug along with it!  I've been thinking of all sorts of art dolls to make lately...

I never thought of using pill holders!  I love that idea, you are right, you can pick them up cheap all the time.  I have even seen them in free boxes at yard sales!
I mailed my kit today.  Now I am looking for my "stuffing" (a teddy bear that donated his stuffing) I found some cool felt, and I have a doll ready to be finished up.
I love the kits sent so far!

That is a really gorgeous face - is that a snake twined around it?

Yeah it is. The theme I chose for her doll was Egyptian- and snakes were considered scared to the Egyptians, so hence the snake. :-)

My amazing doll kit arrived from Panda & I will get photos of it tomorrow. Thanks Panda!

Here is an updated photo of my progress on my tree doll. I've been going a little bead happy. lol



BTW Today is the mailout date, if you have not done so already, please e-mail me and update me on your status. Thanks :-)

Here is the lovely kit I received from panda. Thank you panda. Your painting on the face is great. I love the colors. She also sent me an awesome crochet button necklace she made and a replacement Dotee doll for the one my dogs ate as an appetizer! I was spoiled :-)
