I was looking at the thumbnail, and clicked on the image because it called out to me. This really is a fantastic doll, with such a heartfelt story... It brought a tear to my eye, you've really gone through alot >< The dolls half-healed heart, the imperfections, it really calls out to you. I hope you're not super stressed out with school and all, and get a chance to relax, Miss Wendiek ^^  Smiley

Susan, I can surely feel the love and prayers you sent me. I feel so loved by you here on Craftster!
Thanks a lot! It really is a compliment for all you craftsters that I shared this: I feel at ease, loved and comfortable here.
We all share the love for crafting and that makes us equal, but behind that all is a different story.

And thank you too, Rinique for your comment. I went with the moment, that makes this doll so special and unique. I will be okay and with the upcoming Christmas holiday there will be enough time for me to relax and maybe sew another nice doll.
I hope you will enjoy Craftster as much as I do!

You can also take a look on that members summary by clicking on the name. Some have a short list there with their websites,(blog, etsy, pinterest, ...) likes, short story and swaps that member joined. Hope that helps  Smiley

And you can be sure of new projects of mine in the future!

Wendie,
I have met you a few times through swaps, but don't know you that well.
I think that you are very brave to post something so personal on here and I so glad you feel comfortable and loved here - as you say crafting gives us an equality we may otherwise not have.
I love the doll, even if she is sad, and knowing how she came about, the feelings behind her construction, makes her even more special.
There is a lot of support for all of us here, if we just make it known we need it!

Wishing each and everyone of us a very happy Christmas and a VERY crafty 2013.

Thanks, mini_mum for your nice words! I wanted to share this because sewing what I feel was so new AND I hope to somehow encourage others to be open about it. Maybe it is the Dutch way, I don't know (we tend to be very "to the point" and open about lots, but I'm not always that honest about how I feel to most)
I love the doll and her sadness too, I feel now that it is okay to be sad.

Yes, there is an enormous amount of support here (and probably around us) but it is up to you if you are willing to receive.

I wish you and of course all the Craftsters a very healthy, happy new year. I hope to see more great projects in 2013!

Dear wendiek, I'm so sorry about your mom but your wonderful doll is proof that from trials come tribulations. And dear gotgrey, that happened to me when I lost my Daddy 7 years ago yesterday. It was a couple months before I broke down out of nowhere after holding everyone up through the holidays. The beautiful gift he gave us in his passing was the first complete gathering of our family for Christmas since we were little. My heart still aches, but life is good. And I give thanks for all I have, including all of you Craftster crafters.
Thank you for the sad doll wendiek, and your bravery for making and then posting her. *hugs*

Yesterday was probably one of your least favorite days. Sorry for your loss, puamelia!
It is okay to be sad and you don't always need to be strong. Feeling sad and showing your sadness is being strong too. It makes you appreciate what you do have.

And crafting heals, especially with Craftster to share.
 Take care! Thanks for your comment  Smiley

Thank you, I learned that experiencing and allowing my feelings are ok, thru my husband. I always appreciate the reminder from kind loving people like you. I've never thought of it as my least fav day... It's more of a remembering for a moment, a reminder to live life and appreciate as you said. You take care too!
