I need to get around to actually making my elf XD
My cousin's son, who is five, is loving the idea of bat cookies: he adores Batman.

He's AMAZING!  I'm inspired.  Do you mind sharing what kind of fabric you used for his head/face?  I want to make dolls for my two daughters for Christmas.  I've made a few dolls, but I've never been totally happy with the fabric for the... errr... flesh... I guess is the word.

Thanks Crafty.Canadian! I just use canvas material. Smiley

I want to make some more elves but we'll see if I have time! I found some gingerbread cookie cutter and stampers at target that leave skeleton prints on the cookies. Smiley

I have so many things I'm trying to do that I don't know that I'll get one made! I have to make the five year old a flannel Spiderman hat, I'm trying to make a plushie of the little purple fuzzy critter on my avie, I'm going through my stash, searching for fabrics for an outfit I want to try to have sewn by Xmas to wear for our family's get-together...*dizzy*
Ah, the holidays! Every crafter's nightmare and dream come true all rolled into one!
Ooh! Those stamps sound awesome! Cheesy I wish there was a Target near where I live. Nearest one is about sixty miles or so away as I live in the middle of nowhere.
I think I'm going to even go so far as to use yellow frosting with a touch of black for the cookies (black frosting tastes funky) to make them more Batman themed.

Oh my gosh this little guy is ADORABLE. So many amazing details - the mix of Christmas and Halloween goes so well, who would've thought? Well, you obviously! Cheesy
I've been admiring your work for a long time (er, stealthily -or lurking as they say Wink) and the way you do faces, especially, amazes me. Your style is remarkable and instantly recognizable, it's very Burtonesque to me, sort of dark yet beautiful if you know what I mean. I think it strikes me so much because it's the thing I have the most trouble with and you have such an amazing touch; I'm not sure how you manage to put so much personality and expression into them but they are perfect every single time.

Can't wait to see what you dream up next.

Aw, thank you so much! This just made my night! Tim Burton is the very man who has inspired me to do all this along with Walt Disney, so I am glad that shines through. I fell in love with your Doctor doll today and was so impressed by him! I am just as excited to see what you come up with next. Cheesy
