hey those are really pretty!  I know a lot of people like to have matching bows for their daughter's outfits, so you may be able to get some loyal customers.

Have you tried ebay?  With Easter coming up maybe there would be a little more demand than usual.  You know, people looking for something to go with their kid's Easter dress.

I would think 5-10 dollars would be reasonable.  Maybe more, I don't know, I have a son   Smiley


Good luck!

Yes Salley Mavor was a  big inspiration for these.  I used a few other techniques for the basic construction to make them really sturdy--I wanted to make sure their heads stayed PUT.  and I used some other materials, too.  I loved her book though. 

Thank you for all of the name suggestions and the nice comments.  I picked one of the suggestions for her name . . .although actually they were all good ideas.  I picked . . . . . . . . . . . .

Hollyhock!!

and they will be getting a cat or dog, that was a good idea too!

happy crafting!

For babyfood jars, this is a cute idea someone made for me:

Drill fairly big holes in the lids of your jars and screw them back on (it takes about 12-16 I can't remember)Take a pool triangle and fill it with the babyfood jars ina pyramid shape.  use epoxy to adhere them together and then when dry remove the triangle.  using a string of christmas tree lights, insert a few lights into each hole.  Voila--now you have a very beautiful lamp.  Actually it is one of those things that is fairly tacky in daylight, but in the dark or semi-dark--wow!!

For international coffe tins:

I paint them or decoupage them, add rhinestones or other embellishment, write a birthday message like "Celebrate" on it and fill it with birthday candles for friends. (I'm the broke one in my circle of friends--thus I *have* to be creative)

A variation on this--I decorate them for a new baby and then write, for example "Quinn's Goof Fund" on it.  On the card I write something about how college funds are for moms and dads but aunties get to start goof funds. (goof fund= fun money) of course you always have to put a little seed money in there.  a nice crisp dollar (or better yet a silver dollar) looks classic and of course, only costs a dollar.

This is a fun thread! Lots of good ideas.

Those are aweaome!  So simple & so special.  I meant simple as "fresh and appealing" not as "easy"

Hi everyone-

i'm new to craftster but not to crafting.  I am so amazed by the talent and imagination in this community--wow!!

So I thought I'd be brave and post up some dollhouse size dolls I made for my son.  Our cat roughed them up a little--my poor son hasn't even gotten to play with them yet, he's only seven months old. They are really sturdy, though.  I made them using a combination of techniques I found from other sources and a few I made up myself.

their names are, from left to right, asparagus, don't know (suggestions please?), jack pine, and blue bell.
