Whew! Got some serious work in today. Providing everything dries the way it's supposed to, I should be able to send tomorrow!

Still haven't started with my dotees as I didn't have time to make up little craft bags but I'm not panicking yet (I'm gap yearing!). I've just found out I have a university interview the week after next so making the dotees will be nice breathers in between doing a ton of extra reading etc. to prepare.

Just finished decorating the tree! I use my dotees as ornaments, so my tree is super awesome! Two of my very favorite dotees on the tree- Davy Jones (the Monkee, not the pirate) made by Smmarrt, and The Beatles (yes, the whole group- it's interchangeable!) made by Spiffyhink!

Wow, what a great idea, I was just thinking that these would make great ornaments!

Well, ran in to some snags design-wise too. Two are cut out, the first one needs a piece re-cut, the third one's design is being mentally reworked. I'm stopping to take a quiz right now, then it's back to crafting the rest of the weekend. I am thankful that I have you all for company/inspiration, that Craftster exists to bring us together, that Thanksgiving was wonderful, but done, that I don't believe in Black Friday/Weekend shopping, and that slugs in the tree shipment forced there to be no xmas trees for a bit (hence delaying the xmas decorating). Happy crafting all! Wink

I love using my dotees as ornaments! They make the tree look so whimsical, the main drawback being that my son loves to take them down and play with them all. So I'm not sure if I'll do that this year, or go with something that can be ruined without much heartbreak.

I remember making that Beatles dotee! I'm flattered to know it's one of your favorites, Pollyprissypants!  Grin Grin Grin

My dotee making is going along fine, but I keep changing my mind about a few things. Grrrrr. I know what I want to do, but I can't decide for sure on how I want it to look. I'm making the ones I'm sure about though, so I can think about it for a little while longer.

I think, with the way things are going, I will get one done each night. I have one ready to go out tomorrow!!! I'm quite pleased with it. I think. Hmm. It's my ONE that doesn't have a face and I'm not sure if it's weird or not. At any rate, it would make a great ornament, so hopefully the recipient plans to hang it on the tree...

I received from Bec99 today! I think I'm going to wait to take pics until I've sent, but just wanted to let everyone know. It is the most adorable thing  Grin

Go with your vision, weirdness aside. EMBRACE the weirdness!

I'm so interested in that, I can't wait to see which it is!

The ink is drying on the envelopes as I type this - a trip to the post office tomorrow will see all 3 safely on their way!

This is the first time I've actually had hesitation about sending a craft - each dotee turns out so unique and has a personality all it's own and I want to keep them for myself! I'm sending them with love and I hope their recipients will love them as well Smiley
