Spiffyhink should be posting the last of my dotees, after this holiday week.

Hey y'all!
Here is the dotee I made for Spiffyhink (I'm posting since her camera's on the fritz). She said she liked nature, so I made a tree. I didn't mean for it to, but it reminds me of the kite eating tree from Charlie Brown.



p.s. This is the one that I couldn't figure out how to incorporate a tail, thus the kite. The kite's string is not connected at the end, and can move around like tail. Close enough, right? Wink

Lucky Monday - I received three Craftster packages and two of them are dotees.
First up, all the way from Spain and Fosca:



The face is polymer clay and I love her beaded arms and fancy dress.

Close up of the face (bad photo, sorry):



Next is from Rosie1981 - her first set of dotees. The charm reads "harmony":



The face is made from paper pulp and I love the beaded hanger and tail. And a shot of the back because I love batik fabric:



Thanks so much both of you. Great additions to my vast collection.

Ok! I had to use a camera phone and was convinced that the pictures would be horrible, but as it turns out, my husband's iPhone takes surprisingly good pictures  Shocked

First, here is the dotee from Pollyprissypants, which she posted above too. I figure we can't really have too many pictures of these dolls, can we?





It's so adorable, isn't it? I love the colors and the beadwork.

And here's the one Mamarose22 sent me:





She's so elegant, and I love her cheery yellow color! She smells lovely and I'm especially fond of the rose on the front.

Thank you both so much, they are lovely additions to my collection!

The tree is very clever---and it has a face! Cheesy

Nice!

I agree--we can't have too many pics and views of the dotees...

I also love the dotee from rosie1981--I must be getting sentimental as they are my favorite type of dotee as well...sweet and simple---love the tail!!  And, I have never used paper pulp in this fashion--what a great idea--so is it pressed into a mold like clay? 

The materials used for the skull dotee are very cool--I love the white hair...

Yes the white hair is super soft.

And I forgot to say that I love the tree with a kite - what a great way to incorporate a tail - hee hee.

OH OH! My lovely sister let me use her camera as she oohs and aahs over my yummy dotees and jealously tries to steal them.

First up: Amelina

This little beauty says harmony and sports awesome beads on both the tail and the hanger that are purple on the inside and clear on the out. Sadly it is hard to see the beads well against my lavender kitchen wall but isn't she absolute great? I adore the hint of asian facial features and the swirls of the green fabric are enchanting.

Second: La Diosa de Almas (Diosa for short)

From her delicious curves to her fluffy white hair, I love every inch of her. As soon as I saw her, my first thought was that she is the keeper of souls (in my imagination I feel that she protects all souls until they are ready to transcend and attach to a baby. She has a very wise, grandmotherly look about her and although her eyes are shut, I would not count on much getting past her!)

Sorry it took so long to post pics. These little ladies deserve a great deal of recognition for their beauty and the artists deserve even more. The craftsmanship is wonderful. I cannot say enough about my dotees. There are a lot of really great dotees on here so far but I have to say that the ones I have received are by a million miles my favorite!

Just wondering...Does crafting cause more stress than it relieves?
