Doll Week ’08

This week is Doll Week ’08 for me! It’s crunch time. I have a craft show this weekend and I’m feverishly trying to finish up dolls. My pendants are all ready to go, but the dolls are taking much longer than I anticipated. I’m making 40 dolls, which I admit is way too ambitious, and I don’t anticipate selling them all at the show this weekend, but still my goal is to finish all of them by this weekend. I also have a craft show at the end of October, so whatever doesn’t sell this weekend I’ll take to that show, and what doesn’t sell there I’ll put in my Etsy shop.

All of the dolls are sewn up, now they just need to be stuffed and stitched up! I’ll be working like the dickens during my lunch break at work and in the evenings!

A pile of dolls waiting for their innards!


I have a lot of favorites from the batch. I’ll have to take pictures of them once they are finished.

OH! And I have new business cards! I had a designer that I use at work design them up for me. I am so excited about them! I think they turned out great! They are going to be printed in full color gloss. (I had to cut and paste this graphic from a PDF, so it does not do the cards justice! Just trust me, they are great!)

  1. I agree, you do have great enviable talents. However, I must say that it was a little disturbing to see the dolls with no innards in a pile. I’m not sure why, but I felt bad for them 🙂
