I got the most wonderful BEAUTIFUL doll from princess_me the other day.   THANKS SO MUCH princess_me, she is PERFECT for me.   I promise to post pictures soon, I just want to photograph her in the right setting, and my family was in town this week, so I haven't had a chance yet.  Anyway, I won't say any more about my lovely doll just yet, because I don't want to ruin the surprise for everyone who's waiting for pictures.   I'll try to post that ASAP!   THANKS again, I LOVE her, and she will get a special place in my craft room, so that I can admire her while I work/play!   Grin

Here is the BEAUTIFUL doll that princess_me sent me.  Her name is Autumn, and she is PERFECT!!!
Thanks again princess_me, I absolutely LOVE her!!!
Cheesy




I don't have before pictures, but she was just a plain cloth bodied doll.  Also, I have to apologize to princess_me for taking so long to post pictures.  I wanted to take pictures of her in some beautiful fall setting, but it seems that all of the trees in my yard went from green to completely dead and crumbling (no pretty fall colors).  So this is what I came up with instead.

Whoa-hey! I didn't even realize there was a gallery up. duh. I've already sent the finished doll to shmee. I will post pics of the "before" pic either tonight or tomr.

princess_me - that is a beautiful doll, i love how the dress looks (I would wear that if it was my size!).
& sewberrycrazy - nice still life! Wink

well, i hope no one's scared when they see what i did for shmee's doll...it's not quite so pretty....

thanks for hte reassurance! at least since she never sent me a doll I didn't do a bunch of crafting that'll just get ignored by my partner. I don't have anything to craft! haha...I was just looking forward to this swap! maybe she'll come around...like I said before...I think she may have been caught in the Hurricane a while back in Florida...she may not have recovered from it or something... Undecided...it worries me. and you don't have to make me anything if she doesn't show up...cause I haven't been able to make her anything...I'm not owed anything...it just makes me  Sad...that's all...I just watne dot share my feelings *hehe*.

Ok, here's the doll i sent shmee, before revamping:





UPS says it's getting to her on wednesday so i'll post after pics then.....she will prolly be sending to me within the next couple days.


girlwonder: don't worry we'll figure out something for you. and hey, there seem to be a couple new people who would've joined this swap earlier, so maybe they might want to do a quick version with you: like you both don't actually send a blank doll first, you just send a revamped one? just a thought....if not i'll pitch in with something for you definitely!

Oh my gosh, rocknroll, that doll is a little.....creepy.

(You don't still have my address from the shrine swap, do you? Undecided)





Actually, I think it's cool, but I would never feel comfortable having it near me while sleeping...

I am guilty of sending super freaking late - but I did want to mention that yes - the doll Rocknroll made is super creepy, super weird and very much appreciated. I have it sitting on a shelf in my living room (no my house isn't a complete place of horrors, but I felt it deserved a place of note due to the time and effort put into it... plus it contrasts well with the shags, and my husband averts his gaze whenever he walks past it) Wink

I have to admit that what I sent back is a bit on the creepy side as well, but hopefully you'll like. Though I won't blame you one bit if you hide it in a closet. Without giving too much away, I was going for a freaky album cover look....

Thanks again Rocknroll for the great doll, and Sewberrycrazy for organizing!

So here is the before shot of rocknroll's doll - I didn't take any pics of the after shots, but she said she'll be posting them soon.... it turned into a long distance creep out fest, probably not at all what this swap was supposed to be, but i think we both had fun with it. (now that's a teaser).

Ok, so here's the finished doll that shmee sent me. it's funny that we both made creepy dolls but i guess we were a good match! and i'm glad she made it into wall art since i'm strapped for space. sooooo....without further ado:
