Well finally I'm ready to post about the doll swap! Ok.. this will be the "Beat the winter blues doll swap", and the theme of the doll will be "sunshiney and sweet". the dolls can be made out of any medium and can range in size from 9 to 15 inches. All I ask is that you put your heart into the doll and make it special, because that way everyone will make something extra nice and everyone will be happy with what they recieve! I am so excieted already!
I'll take sign ups until jan. 23. and will email or post partners on the 24th. That will give us the rest of Jan and all of Feb to design and finish our dolls. Lets have the mail out day be leap day! Feb 29th! then we will all recieve our dolls at the right time to cheer us from the winter blues! (well those of us living in snow country anyways..) Everyone else lucky enough to live in sunshine all year around, will be recieving a little extra dose of sunshine in the mail!!
Ok.. so.. please email me firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up, please include your name, mailing address, email address, blog address and your flickr if you have one. Also please consider this a committment. I hate to have to throw that in, but I hosted a swap a while back and some people made and sent, and didnt recieve. How disappointing that is.. I'm still trying to make up for it to them! Please contact your partner and keep in touch with them.. Here is a great chance to make a great new creative blog friend!
Ok, and lastly, I have to make a badge or button or what ever you call it! so I will do that hopefully today.. or heck.. I'll be right back, I'll do it now!done! what do you think? ok? I had trouble with the size. couldnt get it how I wanted it! well, this will do.. so everyone, please post it and spread the word to your doll making friends!So on to other things.... I recieved this little award from my sweet friend at http://primtiques.blogspot.com/ how nice of her to think of me.. I 'll pass this on during the week, but for now I just want to say thank you!I have all my valentines stuff out now.. I really dont have much compared to 11 christmas bins, 3 halloween 2 snowmen, and 2 easter! Just one smaller sized bin.. thats it... I think I'm going to make myself a valentine swag. one of these days. I have a couple new bear orders and I really should be working on them today. eh! "theres always tomorrow" but one does need to be done by Friday. so really if not today.. then it really has to be tomorrow.. no room for procrastination here!
So while I'm here, shall I post my valentine pics? Ok.. (I think you said yes!) did I tell you I have a nasty little sinus headache? I woke up this mornign and thought I had a hang over! We went out to some friends last night, I had 2 momosas thats all.. I only had two because I am on call and didnt dare have any more! anyways, I sure enough woke up withthat stupid headache.. well now after pumping myself full of liquids and eating and taking 2 extra strengh tylenol at 6 am and then 2 more at 10am.. I am realizing that its definitely sinus! and it wont go away!
OK so the pics.. let me get to that now..
