21  Party Monster in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Scribble Dolls on: July 11, 2012 09:44:59 PM
This guy wandered into the art room the other day.
I was glad he did because his bright colors make me so happy!

He says he loves to party...anytime, any place. He'll be there!

I couldn't get him to tell me his name though. Any suggestions?

He's about 6.5 inches tall and completely hand sewn.  Smiley

22  A Little Fairy in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Scribble Dolls on: May 31, 2012 09:04:17 PM
I haven't painted in forever, but I just love doing it. It's one of those few things that makes me really relax.
Our old home didn't have room for me to pull out paints, but now that I have my own little craft room I can finally start again!

I pulled out a little 8x10 canvas and painted this little fairy for fun!

I didn't realize how much I missed painting.
I'm sure I'll be doing many more in the near future. Smiley

23  I.Q. and his quest for knowledge in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Scribble Dolls on: March 31, 2012 04:32:46 PM

The other day, this little monster wandered into my home.
He told me his name is I.Q.

He is obsessed with learning.
He asked me questions nonstop!

I tried to keep him satisfied by letting him use my computer, but it wasn't good enough.
He told me you just can't believe everything you read on the internet.
This little guy was just driving me crazy!

Luckily, I have a friend that is a teacher.
He was more than happy to take this guy and help him in his quest for knowledge.

I.Q. is made mostly of fleece and completely handsewn. He's 9" when sitting.

Hope you guys like him!  Grin

24  Loomy the Laundry Monster (8 pics) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Scribble Dolls on: June 04, 2011 04:38:37 PM
I have a confession to make...I can never stay ahead of the laundry. It's like it just multiplies overnight.

It's gotten so bad that I fear I've attracted...a creature.

I managed to get a shot of him while passing by the hamper the other day...

I found him again later when I opened the laundry room...

It turns out he's a friendly little guy and I managed to catch him to take better pictures.

He even let me take a picture of his cute little tail!

We decided to call him Loomy. After play with him for awhile, we released him in a place we knew he'd be comfortable...

At least now I know why I pulled out ten of my son's socks from the dryer and none of them made a pair!

Loomy is about 6 inches tall (sitting) and made mostly of fake fur. He was handsewn and painted.

This will be my first challenge entry ever on here so I'm pretty excited!
Thanks for coming up with such a fun challenge  Grin

25  A Doll Called Regret Gets a New Name in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Scribble Dolls on: April 14, 2011 10:21:53 PM
At the beginning of March, I learned that my grandmother had taken a turn for the worse.
I'd known for about six months or so that she had cancer.
Unfortunately, the time had come for us to go say goodbye to her.

When I was a little girl, I thought my grandmother was the greatest person in the world.
Unfortunately, I never was able to have the relationship with her that I dreamed of...or really, any relationship with her at all (this was not by my choice).

Hearing that I had to go say goodbye to her was really difficult for me.
I guess there's always been a little girl locked away inside, hoping that one day things would magically change.

My first response was one that I'm sure many of you can relate to...I threw myself into crafting in order to work through my feelings.

That is how Regret came to be.

I worked on her almost nonstop and filled her with all my regrets.
I shed quite a few tears as I stitched her together.
When the time came to paint her face, my first thought was to make her sad.
She had other plans...

As I was working on her face, the lyrics to the song "Smile" came to mind
(which was odd...I hadn't heard that song in forever!)

"Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by...
If you smile."

I realized something very important while working on Regret.
While my grandmother and I were never able to have the relationship I had dreamed of, she did have a major influence on me. She was the one that really inspired me to create things like dolls in the first place.

I may not have had many memories with my grandmother, but the ones I do have are all happy.

As I made the final touches on Regret, she requested I give her a new name...

And that is how the doll called Regret became known as Memory.
Funny what one can learn from a little doll, huh?

Memory is 10" tall while sitting and is completely handsewn and painted.  Smiley

26  Blush the Valentine's doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Scribble Dolls on: February 19, 2011 12:48:17 PM
I'm so excited to share my latest plushie with you guys!
Ever since I started making plushies (a year and a half ago), I've been trying to "find myself."
I feel like Blush is finally the first step towards that.  Grin

She really wasn't supposed to be a Valentine's doll,
but since I finished her a few days before Valentine's and she's very pink...
I said "Happy Valentine's day to me!" lol

She's 9.5" tall while sitting and is handsewn and handpainted.

Here's Blush!

Blush is a quiet girl and is very shy around people.
If you take the time to get to know her though, she's really quite wonderful!  Smiley

Hope you guys like her!
(And I just have to throw in a little "yay for me!" for figuring out how to attach her yarn hair...
even if I thought for sure it would be the death of me  Wink )

27  Re: Ongoing Altered Journal-a-long in Craftalongs by Scribble Dolls on: January 22, 2011 03:23:36 PM
Hi! I haven't posted in this thread in a long time, but I still love visiting. Everyone's work in here is just so wonderful and inspiring  Smiley

I finally started my altered journal and have been working in it off and on for awhile now.
I thought I'd share a few pages with you guys.
I wouldn't say any of them are really completed. I seem to be incapable of just focusing on one page at a time so instead I just randomly flip through the whole book and add whatever strikes my fancy lol.

I'm having so much fun working in my journal! It's such a nice relaxing thing to do just for me  Grin

28  Gree the Luck Monster in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Scribble Dolls on: January 22, 2011 02:37:13 PM
Sweet little Gree is a luck monster...

Unfortunately, he spends so much time giving luck to others, he has none left over for himself.
It's rather embarrassing being a luck monster with no luck at all.

Thankfully, Gree is such a sweet soul, he tolerates it all with good spirits and manages to keep a smile on his face. Smiley

Gree is made of fleece and a pair of socks.
He's 10" tall while sitting and was sewn all by hand.
I just love this guy.  Grin

29  Cheshire Cat in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Scribble Dolls on: September 26, 2010 09:16:32 AM
My cousin's birthday was yesterday and I just knew I had to try making her my version of a cheshire cat.
I was so pleased with how he came out I'm tempted to make another one for myself!

He's made mostly of wool felt and a sock (and was sewn entirely by hand...I really should make friends with my sewing machine one of these days  Grin).

My camera was determined to make Cheshire blue...he's actually a really dark wine colored purple.

I had so much fun making this guy! (And am quite proud that I actually finished him in time for her to open it at her party...I always seem to be late with my plushies, lol.)

30  Penelope Pony in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Scribble Dolls on: August 17, 2010 12:53:04 PM
Poor Penelope....

She hopes to one day be in a big derby, but everyone tells her she's just too small.
She keeps the dream alive daily as she tries to keep up with the dogs while chasing the mailman down the street.

As soon as she learned my friend lives in Kentucky and might have derby connections, she immediately packed up her belongings and rushed off to her new home.

Penelope is about 10" tall, made mostly of fleece, and is completely handsewn.
I made her for my friend's birthday...and although she and I had quite a love/hate relationship while I was working on her (she almost got scrapped), I'm sorry to see her go now!
