I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I was recently partnered with the fabulous cmarion3 in the Junker Jane Swap and after several tries at a "sendable" doll, I ended up with Tilly. She is a wild thing, always happy, and loves to dig in the dirt.



Tilly has a classic Junker Jane style about her, but she decided she also wanted to sit comfortably,  so I gave her a round bottom vs. the classic pancake style of JJ dolls. I think the use of my great-grandmother's buttons completed her. That and the use of lots of inks, water, tea, and coffee staining! She smells kinda nice, though.  Smiley



Thanks for being a super partner, cmarion3!

She is fantastic. Love her pirate heart, what a darling! There's so much going on, it all makes me so curious about the process. I think I recognize those red and white stripes as circus background in a cat-hat photo shoot, yes? LOL, awesome. Clown pirate heart, what could be better!

You know we all want to see more of your "fails", right? Please share!

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

You did an excellent job of capturing Catherine Zacchino's signature look with your design and the staining really conveys authentic aging/discoloration; outstanding work!

Yep, it's the circus background fabric. I kinda love that fabric!

Thanks everyone!

So in love with her! All of her! I'm also a huge fan of red-white stripes.
And I noticed you're in Savannah! My friend just said she has mandatory evacuation and they're leaving Savannah for Atlanta tonight - stay safe! <3

(Oh and the little doll bed in your other post is too awesome for words as well. A huge fan of your work here!)
