Things I've Been Working On Lately...

Things have been slow right now as all my holiday orders have gone out so I've finally had the time to work on some non stationery things. I thought it would be fun the share the things I've been working on.

I'm a huge lover of dolls and toys and have always wanted to learn how to make dolls, specifically art dolls for collectors not so much children's dolls. So I spent 4 days making this guy. He's a character in my favorite British sci-fi series, Dr. Who. This doll is my version of the tenth Doctor played by smoking hot David Tennent. The actor is leaving the show at the end of the year so I thought it was perfect timing (ha, time-ing, o.k. only Who fans will get that very bad joke) to make a doll just for me to remember the actor and his wonderful character. I'm beyond pleased with how he came out and will be making others soon.

The image below is who the doll is designed to be.

The other thing I've been working on is a felt embroidered winter scene. This is a xmas present for my mom. I'm almost done, a small banner with words will be added to the empty white area.

I can't take credit for this cute design I got the template at Checkout Girl and you can make one too. Melissa is an amazing felt artist and I admire her work so much. If you get a chance check out her blog and the tutorial here.

So I've been a busy gal but now it's back to stationery things, after all Valentine's Day is just around the corner!

Oh, that doll is so fabulous! I'm not a Dr. Who fan (although my brother used to make me watch the old ones with the bushy haired fellow in the long scarf as a child), but that doll is very very cool.

I love your name Sassy PACK RAT! I've been called that in the past but actually I'm just a collector of things that SOME DAY I will need!!! LOL!
But I must say...I went through some of your blog and when I saw Carmelita - OMG! I knew I had to be a Follower of yours! She is ADORABLE! Did you see my little Chihuahua "Twinkle" on my blog?
