Stinkin cute!  I love it.  I am counting hours till the work week is over so I can get crafting!  I am having a little crafter's anxiety as these are my first dotee's!  I hope my partners like them!

Post by: mamarose22 on October 17, 2008 06:25:34 AM
This is so cute.  To me, it looks like a cross between a cat and a dancer.

Here is the doll that I got from lollytrolly:


There is a closeup of the little stitched heart in the bottom right corner. I am sorry it took me so long to post photos. Had to make my boyfriends computer work as I can't seem to locate my camera cord, but he has a card reader built in to his computer. Thank you Lollytolly!

Oh, and to my partners here is a handy chart of my progress ;)
Doll one .... 80%
Doll two ... 80%
Doll three ... 60%

I received!  I received.  "Lazy Daisy" arrived this afternoon safe and sound.  I will be posting her picture this weekend.  Right now, she is fast asleep because she was so tired from her long trip.  Thank you I'm sew Silly for this beautiful Dotee.


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Im Sew Silly on October 22, 2008 04:11:26 PM

I am proud to introduce you all to Lenore!  My wonderful dotee from I'm Sew Silly.


Here is her head shot with the cute little raven trinket!


I love her!

Post by: Colourful Daze on October 23, 2008 06:57:37 AM
She is wonderful!


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Smmarrt on October 23, 2008 09:23:44 PM
I received from Im Sew Silly yesterday and it is awesome!
She wrote me a brief note about a game she used to play as a child when the trees became magical. Here is the "Fairy Forrest" dotee:



The tree is sewn and stuffed and I love the abalone button/charm for the moon. The face is cool and creepy but just right.  Thanks so much Val! (Sorry for the extraneous thread in photo - my fault, not part of the dotee.)


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Smmarrt on October 23, 2008 09:28:51 PM
Okay, here is my teaser pic. I'm ready to send but decided to make cards and something else so now I will prbably send on Sunday or Monday.



Note the bowl of dark chocolate M&M's - got to keep those creative juices flowing!


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: teachingjonah on October 24, 2008 03:38:48 AM

Lazy Daisy finally woke up,  She was sent here by I'm Sew Silly.  I finally got a picture of her so you can see how cute she is.

Don't worry it is probably just the overseas thing.  I can't wait to see what you've made. 
I thought I would get mine shipped today, but unexpected delays kept me from the post office.  They will be in the mail as soon as I can get to the post office this week. 


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: RhymeswOrange on October 25, 2008 02:12:01 PM
I'm lovin' Lazy Daisy!

I received from Monkey Thumb!  Orangey Lioney Kookiness!



Random threads are from the random quilt squares in the background.

I love him Monkey Thumb!  Thank you, my first ever dotee!


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: teachingjonah on October 25, 2008 02:33:32 PM
I love the beaded tail and the little feet :)


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Lmcbride on October 25, 2008 03:23:55 PM
Oh MonkeyThumb, any of your flickr dolls would be perfect as a "dotee".  They're awesome no matter what you call them.   :)


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: darkladymajesta on October 25, 2008 05:13:38 PM
oh yay! i'm so glad he's arrived (thanks mama mail!) and that you like him. my first attempt was so incredibly cutesy and ridiculously un-dotee doll like (pics in flickr for a laugh http://www.flickr.com/photos/craftylittlemonkey/2968858334/in/set-72157603700067591/), i had to find a way to get that idea out of my head and into fabric. i really like his face, i think it makes him look so regal.

i'm so excited to see this gallery blossom, this has got to be my new favourite thing ever, these little dolls. so fun.

AWWW! I would adore that guy if he showed up in my mailbox  ;D


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: poyupop on October 25, 2008 06:01:10 PM
All the dotees are so cute... great job ladies! I love the lazy daisy... Im Sew Silly you do a great job on those faces... Is it free hand or a mold?


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Im Sew Silly on October 25, 2008 07:11:15 PM
thanks yall :) i am loving everyone else's dotees as well! now i cant wait to receive my first ever dotee!

Monkeythumb~ i cant wait to see what else you come up with! I have bookmarked your flicker now!  ;D

lol, yeah lazy daisy i thought needed to appear cozy since she is sleeping a lot so i crocheted her body.

Poyupop~ Thanks :) i free hand all my faces.



Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: RhymeswOrange on October 26, 2008 08:22:54 PM
Oooo, very cute!  Isn't it funny how we can take a few ideas and come up something totally different.  I incorporated all the same elements in my dotee for RBS but she looks completely different. 

I can't wait til you each get your dotees from me.  I'm feeling a little swap anxiety.


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: RachelKristin on October 26, 2008 08:37:13 PM
nice! i love the little cupcake


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: mamarose22 on October 27, 2008 07:30:21 AM
I love her hair.  How did you do it?  Did you use yarn and then separate the strands?


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: hipmama1970 on October 27, 2008 12:29:40 PM
I love these!

I'm getting started on mine this week. I can't wait, it looks like so much fun :)

And! Here is the doll I recieved from RhymeswOrange, you cant see it but she drew on both sides with glitter, on her bootie is a cuppy cake!



I got an extra prezzie from RhymeswOrange a bottle cap pin cushion <3

Thanks so much to both of you  I also got 2 really sweet cards which are not pictured...

*dies of cute overload*

When I was opening RhymeswOrange's package I noticed the tape was covered in glitter specs...I was thinking to myself as I peeled the tape away "Theres a sign of a true crafter."  :D

Cute effect with the tape measure.  What is the face made of?

Post by: sajona on October 28, 2008 03:59:42 PM

I think it is polymer clay


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: teachingjonah on October 28, 2008 04:00:17 PM
Those are great dotees.  That orange face is fantastic. 
I received my first dotee today.  Sajona made me a beautiful mythical creature.  I am completely in love with her :)



She sent me some lovely extra leaves/feathers too!
Thank you Sajona :)


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: sajona on October 28, 2008 04:24:37 PM
glad you like it - I used the last scrap of fabric that I've used previously for fabric atcs and the lining of a bag for a David Lynch swap - if you look through my flikr album (link below) you can see all of them!


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Im Sew Silly on October 28, 2008 04:39:33 PM
wow...these are wonderful!
I love the little heart tail on the kitty...
the tape measure additions are great...
and the mythical creature with the leaves..WOW...

All 3 of my Dotees were mailed at the same time, however only Smaarrt's DC# was updated to show that it left her local PO Oct 29, so I guess it will be delivered in today's mail.  I would assume the other 2 will also be delivered today.  I hope y'all like them.  I'm getting anxious now.


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Jen Sews on October 29, 2008 01:04:42 PM
I am in love with the sun and moon theme, so poyupop sent me the perfect little dotee!   Here he is:




She did so many beads around the edge!  and I love the pieced/quilty feel of the fabrics.  Thank you so much!!!













Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Smmarrt on October 29, 2008 02:38:55 PM
I received from mamarose today and she is exquisite! Can't post until late, late tonight or tomorrow as I am off to school. Thanks so much!


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!

I love the face on that moon, well the whole thing actually :)

Post by: flyraeven on October 29, 2008 07:11:59 PM
This is the lovely dotee I received today from Smmarrt!  Isn't she so cute!  i love her!  The silver bead at the very end says "share"


Thank you so much!


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: teachingjonah on October 29, 2008 08:37:40 PM
Those pink toenails are adorable :)  I love the leafy print that smmart used.


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: RhymeswOrange on October 30, 2008 03:22:19 AM
Love those pink toenails!  How girly!

Ma Rut also received the dotee I made for her.  As Monkeythumb said, computer issues....



The hat is a bottle cap pin cushion.  (I couldn't resist!)


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: mamarose22 on October 30, 2008 06:09:21 AM
Such cute Dotees!


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Smmarrt on October 30, 2008 05:22:53 PM
As promised, here is the awesome Miss Raggedy Anne:



I love her - I had quite a few when I was a little girl. What a clever idea - her hair is pleated ribbon, and the embroidery on the face is accurate and adorable.
She's dotee-licious! (Yes, I watch "Project Runway"!)

Thanks, mamarose22, I love her!


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: mamarose22 on October 30, 2008 05:28:20 PM
I received an appropriate fall leaf Dotee from Smmarrt today.  She was accompanied by a bag of buttons, beads and bangles and a Trick or Treat candy bar.  My son quickly claimed the bar for taking me to the doctor.  Being that I proably won't be able to have her picture taken until the following weekend, you can post pictures Smmarrt.


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Im Sew Silly on October 30, 2008 05:44:44 PM
oh i love 'em!
that black and white one with the top hat is so neat.
and adore raggedy ann dotee, makes me wish i still had my raggedy doll i had as a kid.
wonderful job ladies!
I will be going to the PO tomorrow, i suspect i have a couple there for me by now and wasnt able to swing by today. cant wait to see if i have packages! :)


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Smmarrt on October 30, 2008 06:14:19 PM
I din't take any individual shots, only a group photo. I don't want ImSewSilly to see...so we'll wait....Okay?


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: mamarose22 on October 31, 2008 08:04:56 AM
I think my daughter will be here Sunday with her camera.  If so, I can post your Dotee then.  It's just a few days away so I think that would be ok,


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: RazorBladeSmile on October 31, 2008 10:07:10 AM
The new dotees are so great.
Those pin cushions are so friggin' cute.
I love the Raggedy Anne, she looks sweet... and the little black and white one is so detalied, and the white one... I love them all  :D. Great job ladies each has their own individual style/ personalities, I think that is why I love dotees so.
Oh and the one with the pink toes is to die for  :D.
I am just now finishing up MonkeyThumb's creepy dotee. I should be posting on Tuesday  :). 


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: poyupop on October 31, 2008 01:04:30 PM
I am having a hard time with picking my favorite dotee... They are all great!  ;D


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: RhymeswOrange on October 31, 2008 06:11:55 PM
Glad you like her MonkeyThumb.  She just called to me from the winter white polar fleece.

This is my first dotee swap and I think I'm hooked.  I have been inspired, conjuring up more ideas daily it seems.
 ;D


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Im Sew Silly on October 31, 2008 07:27:39 PM
ooh! i really like the new wintery white one with the pretty snow flake fanny!
I received today from mamarose and smmarrt! my camera is charging after taking lots of halloween kiddo pics, so i will post pics of my new wonderful dotees tomorrow!
Thanks I Love'em gals!!!! ;D


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: mamarose22 on November 01, 2008 09:03:53 AM
Smmarrt already rec'd and posted my Dotee, I'm Sew Silly said she rec'd hers 10/31 Flyraeven's Dotee was del'd on 10/31.  I hope you are all pleased with them. 


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: RazorBladeSmile on November 01, 2008 09:07:15 AM
um, i don't think i'm your partner for the creepy doll swap though. mine are listed as Knickertwist, AlwaysInspired, Smmarrt.

Your questionnaire for the dotees, duh :P...I haven't even started on my set of creepies yet  ::) I have too many ideas... ;D


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Im Sew Silly on November 01, 2008 09:15:13 AM
I received ! I received TWO awsome packages of Dotee goodness yesterday and now after recharging my camera....TA DAAAA! Here they are!

I got this WOnderful fall inspired leafy dotee from Smmarrt! She also sent a pouch containing some awsome sparkly extras and danglies for future projects and some chocolate!
(Smmarrt if you have a better pic, please post it, every time i got up close my camera washed it out  :-[ ) I love him and I decided his name is Oakley.


Next i opened the package from Mamarose22 and saw that I had a lovely butterfuy decide to make her way down South for the winter!

I love the detail of the beaded butterfly on top her noggin...Awsome dotee MamaRose!!!


Thank you both sooo much! I love them both! :-*
I have a table top wire tree around here somewhere and I think I am going to make a dotee tree that I can enjoy year round!...now to go and find it  :-\


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Smmarrt on November 01, 2008 12:15:39 PM
Glad you like the leaf dotee. I actually color-copied real leaves I found (and pressed) around San Francisco and printed them on printer-ready fabric. I did that for the creepy doll swap also.


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Im Sew Silly on November 01, 2008 12:29:35 PM
oh that is such a neato idea! so I have a dotee who was madein and inspired by nature in San Fran...awsome!
I have been to San Fran once years ago and really enjoyed my visit....lol, but the speedy cab drive on the hills flying scared the wits outta me haha  :D
picture two men and myself being thrown from side to side in the back of the cab and you got it.. was kinda like a seinfield episode LOL


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: mamarose22 on November 01, 2008 01:02:10 PM
What a good idea, Smmarrt.  I guess my leafy Dotee was also printed on that special fabric.  I thought you just had that fabric print in your stash and figured it would make a nice leaf. 


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Smmarrt on November 01, 2008 02:29:00 PM
Okay, it's pouring rain here, and I got soaked running out to the mailbox. Glad you like them ladies - I try to something different each time to challenge myself. I like the leaf dotees so much, I'm going to make a few extra for gifts - lots of birthdays upcoming in November and December.

So when do we sign up for Round 4? I have such a nice collection and I want more!


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Im Sew Silly on November 01, 2008 03:16:01 PM

I know you gals have already seen the two Dotees I've received (big thanks to my partners for posting pics!) but I wanted to go ahead and post my own photos and brag about them ;D I love 'em both!

MonkeyThumb sent me a lovely Dotee complete with a pink cheetah print and cute pink details. I love how the paper for her note matches :)


Look at the cute little toenails :D


And the embroidered wing detail on the back, too cute!



RhymeswOrange sent me a lovely Dotee inspired by her first swap which I hosted for the Dresden Dolls / Punk Cabaret! Her notecard also matches the doll ;D


The face is really cool and looks just like these flapper buttons I bought recently!


The bottom has cute charms :)


She also made a super cute matching tophat pincushion! ;D



Thanks ladies! :-* :-*

I received a few days ago and have been a terrible partner and am just now getting to photos. So without futher delay my dotee from poyupop


The front and the back of this adorable doll!

And, she is even making friends


The colors are pretty bad in these photos. My doll is quite a bit lighter... and I love her  ;D

The pictures look great.... I am happy they are making friends and that you like them. I made a stamp that kind of resembled something from your wists. I had to use it on fabric. I can't wait for your Dotee!!!

I got an AMAZING dottee yesterday from sajona...!!
Those of you unfamiliar with the band associates (probably all of you :D) may not appreciate the full greatness of this doll.... but look how well made he is!



Theres little lyrics dangling down in shrinkydink. I just love it!

Heres the real billy mackenzie for likeness

Okay, it's pouring rain here, and I got soaked running out to the mailbox. Glad you like them ladies - I try to something different each time to challenge myself. I like the leaf dotees so much, I'm going to make a few extra for gifts - lots of birthdays upcoming in November and December.

So when do we sign up for Round 4? I have such a nice collection and I want more!
lol, glad to know that I am not the only one excited for a round 4 even though we havent finished round 3 yet! :) I will surely join up if we have another...

I'll probably start one shortly after this one finishes and leave sign-ups open for a bit longer than this round  ;D...Then again the holidays are rapidly approaching so people are less prone to swap...Idk, what do you ladies think?


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Im Sew Silly on November 02, 2008 04:27:00 AM
what do I think? I think i need more dotees for my dotee tree  ;D
I still have one more to look forward to receiving, from flyraeven  ;D

This is the cute leafy goodness Dotee from Smmarrt.  She also sent a Halloween candy which my son already ate and a goodie bag of assorted buttons, beads and bangles.



Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Im Sew Silly on November 02, 2008 12:00:22 PM
super cute dotees!

Mamarose~ I love the colors in your leaf!

CarnabyStreet~ Very neat and original dotee you received!

Oh, I found my wire tree for dotee display :) kiddo has been trying to make off with it since its light enough to carry around. I cant wait to see what flyraeven has in store for us!  ;D


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!

these are all so cute and creative!! I <3 them all so far. :D

Post by: sajona on November 02, 2008 01:34:29 PM
Carnaby street - glad you liked him - it was so strange to find someone else in a swap who had the same obscure musical taste! Especially as we are so far apart in age LOL! I was looking at the website for the Underage Festival from this year (thinking about getting tickets for 2009 for my DS) and saw your band were on the bill - very impressive!!
Anyway I just did a small post about Billy dottee on my blog:

I'd love to see what your Dotee wire tree looks like, Im sew silly.  Can I borrow it for my tree swap?  (LOL)


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Im Sew Silly on November 02, 2008 02:00:08 PM
weeeell, I cant give ya the tree LOL, but I will post a pic of it! I just took one acutally LOL
I was gonna wait until I had all 3 dotees on it, but I am just pleased with how the tree looks so i was gonna share :)

Post by: mamarose22 on November 02, 2008 02:08:34 PM
So far I received my Dotees from Im sew silly and Smmarrt.  One more to go from Flyraeven.  When I get this dotee I will have four of them to start my collection of dotees.  (I had also received a dotee in my rainbow swap.) I think they are all so cute.


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Im Sew Silly on November 02, 2008 02:12:31 PM
Here it is :) the makings of a dotee tree! I was gonna wait until I had all 3 to put on it, but i think its turning out pretty so I will post a pic now and then once again later when the 3rd wonderful dotee arrives  :)


I use to use it to hang the jewelry I made to sell on it. :) but it makes a pretty nifty dotee tree as well & kiddo loves it!


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: RhymeswOrange on November 02, 2008 02:54:15 PM
Love the dotee tree ImSewSilly.  I was thinking of something similar to display my newest collection "dotees".

I am so looking forward to round 4!


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: mamarose22 on November 02, 2008 03:28:23 PM
That is a cute tree.  I think maybe a card holder tree would also work, but yours is nicer.  I love all the swirls.

I got the cutest dotee from teachingjonah - but I really struggled to get a good photo! If you imagine it much lighter and brighter...

I'm so glad it you like it :)  No, it's not felted (I wish I could do that too!) I just used felt.  I had a lot of trouble getting a good photo of it too for some reason, but I'll post a group shot when they all arrive. 


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: mamarose22 on November 05, 2008 06:43:13 AM
That's a good idea.  I'm waiting for my last Dotee and might also take a group shot of all my Dotees playing together.  That will be fun.

Post by: flyraeven on November 07, 2008 06:24:02 PM
I received this last dotee last week from MamaRose, sorry it took me so long to post!  Here it is, isn't he cute?  Can't decide upon a name though...


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: Im Sew Silly on November 07, 2008 06:35:21 PM
he is so cute! his spot at his eye makes me think of the dog on Little Rascals, Peatie :)...or however they spelled it  :D

I received from flyraeven today but I'm charging my batteries, literally and figuratively, on this Friday evening. I will post tomorrow morning - it is lovely and just what I needed at the end of a loooooong week. Thanks, Amber!

ah! it says mine from flyraeven is at the PO waiting on me, that it arrived today.
unfortunately, they are only open for an hour on Sat mornings at my little PO and I will have a plumber here first thing in the morning so i cant leave....i will pick it up first thing next week though cause i cant wait to see it!!! :o

Not sure what has happened to michelleames as she isn't replying to pms..so here is what I sent her and I hope she has received it:


(on a grumpy note - this will have been the 3rd swap in a row - apart from ATC and OWS swaps, that I have been flaked on and I am seriously getting annoyed)


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: RazorBladeSmile on November 08, 2008 04:37:40 AM
That puppy is adorable  :D



The dotee you made is gorgeous sajona, it's a shame that you have been flaked on so many times :(


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!
Post by: teachingjonah on November 08, 2008 06:12:29 AM
I haven't heard anything from michelleames either.  It seems very uncharacteristic of her.  She was in the last dotee swap and she sent really nice dotee's and communicated a lot.  I hope everything is o.k, but yeah, it sucks getting flaked on. 


Title: Re: Dotee Doll Mini Art Doll Swap ROUND THREE Gallery!

I have gotten flaked on a number of times. But I just join more swaps and try to angel if I can (it hasn't worked out yet but I have had a number or really nice angels and want to return the favor).

 :)I am SOOO glad you liked it Sheridan!  I had the idea before this round started but executing it was harder than I thought it was going to be - his bead legs were not as good as I would have liked, nor could I find the "perfect" ribbon to hang him.  But all in all he came out ok.
 I got your dotee today and I'll post in just a bit.  Thanks! the beading is wonderful!

Post by: mamarose22 on November 08, 2008 12:44:06 PM
Such a cute birdie.  The DC# from the dotee that Flyraeven sent hasn't been updated.  The computer says that was mailed on 11/5 and it didn't arrive in today's mail.  Smmarrt and Im Sew Silly each received theirs.  I guess it will come in Monday's mail.  Can't wait to see it.

Southern Flower, she is awesome and I have named her Citrus. She is hanging over my craft table/desk.  She makes me smile. I look forward to introducing her to her friends when they get here. :)

 :D  Here is my dotee from SheridanLAv

It is as cute as can be and has lots of wonderful beadwork, i really like how his smile is tilted to one side :) The silver beads say "hope" "wish" & "dream"
The fabric is a really pretty plum batik

Thanks again Sheridan!

"This beetle is a good luck scarab dotee. May he bring your life luck, laughter and love" from Flyraeven:



I love it and he fits in with all my other various art dolls. The charms on his back read "Be Here Now". I love the vintage fabric and just the overall uniqueness. Thanks again!

I did receive my dotee from Flyraevn. And yes, I think she is adorable.  I now have a cute little kitty " who loves roses" as she is adorned with little roses on the bottom. (She combined the two things I like, kittens and roses.) I named her Sunny because I am told she was napping in the sun. Right now she is playing with her dotee friends.  Hopefully I should be able to post her picture this weekend.

I received the last of my Dotee's today. I absolutely love the dotee from LukenLarry, words cannot describe it.


here are some of the dresses that came a long with it. She also sent some more material so I can make my own dresses.


After much rummaging around my house... come to find out that the MIL had borrowed one of the other dotee's and I had to grasp it from her quivering hands. So here is a group photo of the three.

This one is from Hipmama1970 ( it's based on her inner dotee) I LOVE it!  So cute! And her little necklace is just lovely.

 And this sunny dotee is from violette28

I just adore the squinty eyes!

Thanks ladies!!!

Here is my very cool dotee from Carnabystreet


and I just got a message from I'm Sew Silly.  She is my angel and she has already sent. Talk about speedy!

This isn't the best picture and I took it before I added some embroidery, but here are the three I made.

Razor, I'm glad you like the last edition to your cupcake Dotee army :D She is huge...actually I made all three of them in a similar size this time. So they're all huge :)

Oh my gosh!  That cupcake is amazing.  I just love her.  I might just steal her.  That face is beautiful.  How did you ever paint those features on such a tiny face?
How are the stripes made?   

Thanks mama :) For the facial features, I cheat and use a super fine tip Sharpie. There is no paint brush small enough and no paint smooth enough to get the results I want so I opt for a marker ;D For the stripes, I don't know the official term for it (I am no needlework expert -- I just try to mimic what I think looks cool :D), but I think it's a chain stitch and I do it backwards.

I thought it might be a chain stitch, but it is very hard to see every detail in a photo of something that small.

Thank you everyone for your nice comments on my dolls!   :-*  I had a lot of fun making tiny dresses although they were a lot harder than I thought they would be.   I practiced a little bit on my creepy dolls swap. 

I am so glad you like your doll Lolly Trolley and poyupop!   

Here are all my dolls!   Thank you so much ladies!  I love them very much.  :)

I'm finally posting the photo of lovely Lady Orange from Ma Rut.  She is beautiful, with her cute eyelash details and rosey cheeks.  I like to think of her little green rick-rack hanger as a leaf!

Thank you Ma Rut!

I received my very festive fall fish dotee from my angel, I'm sew silly today! 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  It was worth being flaked on to receive this great dotee. I just wish I knew that my dotee was happy in her new home too.

That fishee is soooooo cute.  I'm sure that this fishee is much nicer than what your flaker would have sent.  It was so nice of Im So Silly to pitch in like that.

Heya everyone, I am back from my mini vacation! Sorry I thought I posted I left but I guess I was in such a hurry I closed the window with out posting   :D

I will be updating every ones feedback tomorrow night, I somehow managed to injure my leg Sunday evening at Ruby Falls (http://www.rubyfalls.com) and I am pretty doped up  :-\

I love all the new little dotees!

Tried to post this the other day but no go...Here are my 3 awesome dotees from Round 3.



From left to right: Tree and Moon dotee from I'm Sew Silly, Good Luck Scarab Dotee from flyraeven, and Mini-Raggedy Ann dotee from mamrose22.

Not to repeat myself, but I love how everyone reinterprets "dotee-ness" and as a result, I have a fantastic and unique art collection....When I finish hanging my creepy dolls, I'll post a photo of my art collection.

Oh, and more importantly, get well soon, RBS - we want Round 4!!!

Feel better Razor.   How did you get injured?

 :D Well... Long story short, the boy and I went spelunking, and walked up a mountain where you can see 7 states from the top. I somehow managed to pull my quadriceps in my left leg, from bending in weird positions going through the cave and mountain passages. There are narrow and short passages all over the place (and since I am 5'10 I had to bend a whole lot!). I'm not really sure how I did it but all I know is later Sunday night I went to take a shower I had a huge bruise on my inner thigh that freaked me out and I couldn't lift my left leg more than an inch off the ground without getting a horrible acute pain in my thigh... which on the whole sucks because I have stairs at my house. So, I have had to drag it along like a dead leg  :D and it feels like a dead leg when I lift it  :-[
Moral: I guess I am not as flexible as I thought, but the medicine and baby-ing I have received sure is great ;D

Thanks for all the well wishes! I'll let you know when I start round four... I am waiting for my dolls to be received which has got me worried since I posted them a couple days ago... >:( I am hoping it is because of the Holidays and not another mix up...


Note: Since I am hazy if you have NOT received feedback but HAVE received three dolls and sent let me know so I can update you ASAP.  I think all of you should get feedback tonight since you have sent, but I want to make sure everything is right on my spreadsheet.

Thanks for being awesome gals!
<3 Wendy

Isn't it cute?

I received from RazorBladeSmile recently! He is a baby gnome Dotee and his name is Tobias, which is a character from Razor's favorite show, Arrested Development. He is just perfect! I love gnomes, the colors and expression on his face ;D





Thanks RazorBladeSmile!!! :-*


Also, MonkeyThumb received from me a while back but I don't think she's gotten a chance to post pics so here is what I sent her :) She mentioned wanting something not necessarily Christmas themed but something that may look cool on her tree this year, so I decided to make a peppermint swirl Dotee :) The face is clay and the swirl shapes are made out of new and vintage buttons.

Yay, I am so glad you guys like them... Without further ado here is the picture of the three I sent  ;D



The first one went to RhymeswOrange, the second to Ma Rut and the third to MonkeyThumb.

I hope you get your net back soon!


Final note:

I am waiting on one Angel to send and I will be starting up a round four shortly after...I will keep you all posted, thanks again for an awesome swap all  ;D

I'm waiting for the next dotie swap as well, which I assume will be in 2009.
