Yes, yes more dolls entered the gallery!

that squid is creepy and cute AND useful! Who wouldn't want a squid with a pocket, hahaha! And a chenille worm to warm your neck? Oh yes, please! Hahaha, oh wait, my worm just got ready for use...  Roll Eyes

And I have lots to share with you! I received yesterday, took pictures and wanted to upload but my camera cord went missing in action, my card reader got lost too and when I tried to e-mail the pics to myself with my partners computer, that went wrong too!
Good news, I found the card reader... buried under fabrics and stuff on my desk. Okay!

WARNING!! BIG SPOILAGE!! alwaysinmyroom stuffed so much extras in the box she sent me, no us.

A complete box with the doll, crafted items, candy of all sorts, origami paper and pretty Japanese fabric!!

AIMR told that she has a Japanese mother and chose that as her theme. The doll is Japanese orientated, I love her!

She is made from old Japanes Kimono-fabrics! How cool is that?! Her lips are very chic and make me think of a Geisha! She wears Japanese slippers and holds a fan made from Origami paper! She also has a gold knot-closure on her tummy.

Her back side is very pretty too:

With a piece of paper with Japanese characters from an old crochet book, love it!
AIMR has written her Craftster name and name on that paper, see?

She made me a pretty pincushion too, from a jar lid and Japanese fabric, a small purse with Japanese fabric and covered three pencils with pretty origami paper! And she made me a knitted hat. She liked a comment of mine on the Blythe doll hats Leslie made and decided to knit me a hat! Here is a picture of all the extras AIMR made me:

I found vintage postcards, origami paper and some old Japanese fabric in that box too!
AND she stuffed in several sorts of candy too, we tried them all (of course) and they are yummy!!
My boys were sooooo happy to see gum tape in the box! Especially the youngest (Joris is his name) is in heaven! He carries it around with him all day long, hahaha!

Here is a picture taken by my oldest (Thijs) of me and Joris. I'm wearing that cool hat and Joris is holding (and chewing) his treasure, the tape gum. He calls it Bubba Bubba instead of Hubba Bubba.  Cheesy

THANKS, THANKS, THANKS Linda!  Kiss You spoiled me way too much, but we LOVE it!

(My partner thinks the doll is odd, hahaha what does he know! He thought the same thing of the dolls I made for you  Grin )

I hope yours will arrive soon too! And that you love it! Completely different, that's for sure!

A hint: blues, patched. The other: red, child's drawing.  Huh

I love the hat too, and the diea to sew paaper onto the doll (or that's what it looks like?) - really cool to gte different textures.

and the popper suckers on the squid - such a good idea!

OMG, has it really only been a little while? Thanks for the congrats on my test. My application is in and now I can focus on my Pharmacology class.
This gallery totally rocks! After reading all the comments all I can say is I agree with most everything, mainly that I love what everyone has made. I love how you can see aspects of the makers and the receivers in them. Too funny about the fabric limbs story!!! And I still need to send that card. AND I can't believe I forgot to sign my doll again. *sigh* But the latest dolls from Sharalee are so cute...

Swap hunting....

Wow, AIMR and Sharalee. I have anxiety now. Sooooo much detail. the idea of a JJ mermaid is awesome and all of the new additions are wonderful. Such nice extras too.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!
