My final dotee (received) from strwberrytart:



I don't want to give away too much of the details in case the others in my group haven't received yet but I'll simply say it is the epitome of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
The face is paper clay? And I love the use of fabric flowers for the skirt. But I'll wait until the others receive before I reveal the rest of the secrets...

Each partner received a completely different dotee with the only common factor being that some part of each is recycled.

For your dotee, Smmarrt, the head was a gray plastic center "bead" if you will from an old Halloween party favor necklace from last year. The hanger is the actual necklace strand and the bones hanging as the tail were also "beads". I painted it white and then hand painted a Dio de los Muertos type look on it. The body is the upper portion of a sterilized 20oz. Dr. Pepper bottle. When you paint the opening of the bottle white, it takes on a look of vertebrae. The yellow petals are from a flower arrangement in my dinning room and the yarn hair is from scraps left from a previous craft.

Your questionnaire stated you like skeletons and a bit of whimsy so that is what I attempted to give you. I really hope you like her!

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

very very clever--I particularly like the reuse of a bottle!  What a wonderful story of how you created this,strwberrytart!  It is fantastic--the little bones on the tail are just so whimsical!

Thank you so much for the wonderful compliments!

I cant however, forget an=bout my last two swap partners! I received a couple of weeks ago but with my father getting killed in a car accident and then playing catch up with everything else, I have not been able to post pics of the lovelies I have received.

Here is the one I received from Smmarrt.(Her name is Savor)


And here is the one from Angelious. She drew inspiration from my daughter's picture and so I have named 'Tina since my daughter's name is Satina.

Look at the wonderful detail on the back.

Thank you so much ladies for all my dotees! I have really enjoyed making and receiving all these little darlings and hope someday to do this again. I appreciate everyone's patience in my sending so late.
