I've become a Grandma! (and gothic arch challenge)
This is my entry for the gothic arch challenge. This weeks challenge was to use a matchbox and I had so many ideas for it. This is one idea I went with. I hid the matchbox within the folds of her skirt and filled it with flowers and a pretty butterfly.
Now to decide what I'll do with it....maybe stick it to the front of my journal?
I used the same image I used in the arch challenge to make this hanging wall art doll. I am currently working on more of these to list on ebay. All different colours and different styles. Depends on what the fabrics want to be made into. Some are screaming out to become a fairy, some a Victorian doll and others a more gothic style doll. These will be listed on the weekend along with the stockings and other dolls I am making. Its been one of those weeks and I've had too many distractions so my plan to list today has been put off for a couple more days so I can finish of what I've started and put up a decent amount for sale.
This doll is finished to be listed for sale........
Still working on this poor girl but at least she does have a pretty face now and she will get some arms later tonight :) Sorry the pics aren't the best but the house is so dark today I can't get decent photos of anything!
And this is another in the same style but I am loving the colours so much I think I might keep her for myself ;) Its my birthday on the weekend so it will be my birthday present to me. I can do that right?
I'll be putting up more pics over the next few days as I finish off the items I have for sale and as a special for my blog followers if you see something you want before I list it let me know and I'll offer free postage.
Now I bet you are all wondering which one of my kids made me a grandma! I can tell you now that I don't care how old I get I will never be called Grandma! The grandkids can call me Nanny Shell!
So which one of my too young to be making me a grandmother daughters (and who better not even be thinking about the stuff that leads to making babies) made me a grandma at the tender age of almost 36!
She brought home my first grandchild yesterday and named him Bobbin Hood! I have to admit he is a bit of a cutie.
Bobbin is part of a health project at school to teach the kids the joys of parenting and this $2500 (yikes) doll cries if its neck isn't supported properly, when cold, hungry etc and has put Kayla off wanting to make me a Nan any time soon. Phew....
