It's been a while since I've made a doll. I'd forgotten how fun it is!
Holly is my newest creation. She started as a baby earlier this year and I just didn't have any vision for the doll. I guess I just lost my muse.
A few days ago a friend of mine suggested an Elf on the Shelf challenge. And I was going to start from scratch. Until I saw the little naked, not quite finished doll. And then I knew what to do. I repositioned the legs to a sitting position, resewed the wonky ears, gave her some braids and some hair, and Holly was created!







She's just like my 4 year old daughter. She loves fluffy dresses, and showing off her bloomers. She'll fit right in!

I love her! She has such a pretty face.
Hm, I keep thinking I need to make my own elf on a shelf (my son is finally old enough this year to start doing this!)

Thanks for the vote of confidence. You can still call me Crazewoman, if you like. It applies on some days.
