Hi all,
Okay another idea of mine, but I am looking for someone to host it!
You can see what spirit dolls are here on my Pinterest.
http://www.pinterest.com/Alittlemusthave/spirit-dolls/ I especially like the ones with the wood sticks.
These would be fairly quick and so much fun to make! And you could attach a tag with what spirit you have put into it for the receiver. Such as creative energy, or inner strength, the ability to love or forgive etc. a spirit doll can be a talisman or an amulet and can attract positive energy or ward bad energies off.
Anyone please want to host  Wink
Here is a photo I borrowed:

I like this idea!

Maybe a combination of spirit dolls and dotees? To attract more people?

I'm willing to organize if there's enough interest. I've been co-organizing before, I think I'm capable of organizing too.  Smiley

Oh I love these. But sadly simply cannot be an organizer. My job is way to demanding right now. I will have to hope that someone has the time and love to do it. Great idea.

Hi ladies!

There seems to be interest and I'm willing to organize.

How about one dotee and one spirit doll?
I think if we give the option of dotees or spirit dolls, it is going to be so difficult to match people. And I'm not looking forward to a very complicated first time of organizing...  Roll Eyes

And I'm thinking of Sign up from Wednesday 30 April- Wednesday 7 May.

And a crafting period of 3 weeks? That should be long enough, it isn't very time consuming to craft one dotee and one spirit doll. The postal costs shoulcn't be that high either.

What do you think? Suggestions?  Cheesy I'm open to that!  Cheesy
