Check out the blog I added over on the right - called Advanced Style - It is so awesome - it is all stylish, eccentric, "vintage" adults on the streets of NY. It is a lovely breathe of fresh air. There are videos to watch too - hope you enjoy it. I heard of this on another blog a while ago, but did not check it out until today. Voodoo Cafe has an interview with the gentleman who started this. Check that out too.

OMG - My friend made my Hitty the sweetest outfit! I loaned her my doll as a sample, because she was making one for herself. I am still not too comfortable making clothes, and my little girl has been standing in the art room in her bloomers for over a year. We were with friends a couple weeks ago and she set her in front of me at the table. I was so thrilled, touched, thankful - This is one of the most special things I have ever received. She has lace and a snap on her bloomers, the dress and the apron are just darling. I think the sweetest thing is that our dollies now have matching outfits! She made the same for her Hitty. I just love it. Theresa, thank you so very much.
The planets lined up again - I have been wanting to make a doll - so today I sewed up 3 dolls! I am making a birdcage doll with a friend in a couple weeks- so that is started. I can't wait to see this done -
I have wanted to make the Barbara Schoenoff Queen Anne Style doll for a long time and finally got her sewed up - I am getting together with another friend and we are making her. Then there is Christine Shievely - my favorite - and I am making this just because - not sure what colors or anything - it is a collage doll- painting the doll and stuff - should be interesting.
I made the little rag dolly for another doll to hold. I received a children's book "Fanny", by Hollie Hobby (I had her books, doll, figurine, when I was a kid) , for Christmas from a friend and this is the little girl's doll. I am going to make the Colleen Babcock Finders Keepers doll into the little girl. She has been hanging out with no clothes and just batting for an outfit - for a LONG time. I cannot wait to see how she looks holding her dolly.... I LOVE dolls holding a doll - just too cute.
I have 1 more doll to make - a goth doll and she will hold little "dude with horns" dolly! I really can't wait to see that either.
Tomorrow my mom and I are taking a beaded cuff class. I am looking forward to this - I have been trying to find a class for this since Christmas of 2009!!!! Hard to find a class, and teacher who is affordable and in the state of Ohio!
