Look at the AWESOME Strawberry Shortcake stuff that laraebay sent me....  Shocked

The best part is that I already have a ton of SSC stuff, but I didn't have any of these things.   I LOVE it all, thanks sooooo much laraebay.

Oh, and I can't wait to play with the paper dolls!!   Cheesy

Hello Everyone.... Just a friendly reminder... this is the last week to get your doll finished and in the mail.  I haven't heard from most of you, so I hope everything is going OK.  If you are having problems, or think that you may not make the dead line, please let me know.  THANKS, and I can't wait to see everyone's dolls!!!   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!!!

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.

I love the thumb prints, I was actually thinking of doing something like that with my husband's and my prints, and then we'd get matching tattoo's but I was afraid it would be too intricate, and that the lines wouldn't have definition, but your's looks great!
I've got your something grey/silver with black hearts!

This is my SECOND WISH to fulfill, and I am in the USA

Here's my list:

~ some sort of resin made jewelry

~ a knit or crocheted neck warmer thingy that can be raised to also cover my head (I think it's called a cowl), or mini poncho

~ a cloche hat with a very small brim (knit, crochet, sewn, whatever) 

~ knit or crocheted arm warmers or fingerless gloves with really soft yarn

~ vintage men's neckties.  I especially love the ones that have some texture to them (not just the plain silky ones), and I'm trying to find some with greens/blues/grays/blacks in them to make a bag with, but really any colors will do.

~ I think this is a long shot but... I would love a sewing pattern for a cloche style hat with a brim. Similar to this:
  I think this would be considered a cloche, because it sits really low and tight on your head.  Anyway, I really want to make something like this.

~ any unique yarns, I'm teaching myself to knit so I have a lot of the simple acrylic stuff, but I would like some other types to play around with.  I think lasandri is doing this one, but she may be doing fingerless gloves as well.

... and because I am teaching myself to knit there are some other things I would like to help me with that...
~ any circular knitting needles that you're not using anymore
~ any books magazines with good patterns for beginners

... Um, I'll try to think of more, and add on if I need to.

I'm a bohemian-hippie at heart, but my usual dress is fairly casual.  Deep/Dark Teal is my current favorite color.  I also, love almost every other blue or green, and muted colors, autumn colors, grays, and dark purple.  I like retro or vintage looking things.    Actually I'm pretty eclectic, and would like just about anything, especially if it's comfortable and casual.

I got the most PERFECT (for me) scarf from taped_on_wings (#102).   It's just the way I like it.... long (about 6 feet) skinny (3-4 inches) and some of my favorite colors (gray, dark purple, and dark teal).  And on top of all that it is soooooo SOFT!  I know the teal yarn is chenille, but I'm not sure what the other two are.  I'm sorry the pictures aren't the best.  taped_on_wings, if you have better ones please post them.   Oh, I also love how she made the stripes go vertically instead of horizontally, I think it makes it very unique.  THANKS for making this just for me  Grin  I LOVE IT!!

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

Oh wow, you guys are making me blush.  Thank you for all of the compliments!!   Kiss

I have a pretty average life (yet happy and fulfilled)... work/home, hubby/kids...   and sewing is my escape and my "art"   Cheesy
