Valentine Swap

I thought I'd share the incredible doll I received from the BAD Valentine swap. We were paired so that that the person we were making a doll for was also making a doll for us. It was a great experience for me as a beginner because I had a fabulous partner. The moderator paired me with a generous talented woman who very kindly answered my questions. When I received my doll I was so amazed when I saw it, it was so beautiful. And the beadwork is incredible, I can learn so much from looking at her work. The picture doesn't do it justice, the beads reflect the light and it almost glows.


Swaps Galore....

I have been doing some swaps the one on BAD for Valentine's and some Dottee dolls on swap-bot. I won't mention names as some people don't like their names being used on the net but I've posted the pics of some of the swaps I've received. Such talented people in the world.

The pink dotee, is from a valentine swap. The maker said it reminds her of Dr. Suess and I agree, so I named her Suessie. The other one is from the ugly doll swap where you were supposed to pick three things you thought were ugly to make the doll. However it doesn't look ugly to me! Looks Polynesian or Hawaiian to me.

The blue doll is from the winter icicle swap. If you look closely you can see there are beads wrapped around the middle. It's a bracelet. Very clever.
