Dolls that I made from My Own Pattern!

Hi Friends,

Hope you are all doing well and getting ready for Hanukkah or Christmas whichever  one you celebrate. :)
I for one, am almost ready for Christmas. Still have gifts to buy and wrap, but I can do that with two or three days of shopping. :)
But now the "Count Down" has started! Just 15 Days to Christmas! YIKES

 Now, I want to share with all of you, Two dolls that I recently made. Last year, I hosted a swap which I called "What Do You See" on one of my online groups . I made a pattern that I shared with those that signed up. We had lots of fun and the ladies created some fun dolls. This year, my friend Kathie (who is in charge of the group called "Mixed Media Studio" at Yahoo) asked if I could host the swap again, so I did. :)
I made a New Pattern and these are the two dolls that I made. The First one, the Cardinal Bird was the one that I sent my Swap Partner , Kathie....It is made from Muslin that I applied Gesso to and when dried painted my bird. I dressed her up in Tulle, ribbons and put feathers on her head with a lovely rhinestone piece.

My second doll (which I still have) is an Angel that I made. Her face is hand painted, and I used a lovely shimmery fabric for her body and also used some lovely lace on her and a ribbon with tassels. . I gave her a hanging heart that she carries with her. :) Sorry the heart didn't show up in the photo.

IT IS BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS!

Hi Friends,

Hope you are all doing well and getting ready for the Holiday Season!
I really can't believe that today is already December 1 ST.
How time flies when you are having fun! LOL

I have been very busy but I am happy to report that my home is completely decorated inside and out!
I love this time of the year!

Here are some things I have made. The First three Bird Ornaments were for a personal swap with my friend, Pam C. in Maine. The Button Wreath was a small gift for my friend, Kathie in New York. The Felt Santa Ornament will be another small gift for someone. The Four fabric Gingerbread Boy in the Globe Postcards were for an online swap.
Hope you like all of them.
Hugs,
