also, I've had a couple people ask if it has to be a bear.. I say no.. it could be any little animal or a doll. dont forget the little prop to go with it! Im not sure what I'm going to make! I have so many ideas! maybe we'll get an uneven number again and I can have two partners!! hehe!

another happy easter post.. lots of pictures.. I thought I would take the time to post from a couple of swaps.. The first one is from the easter basket swap hosted by Genevieve Olsen of Bella Enchanted. Genevieve was my partner and I had mor fun filling a basket for her. Then I recieved her wonderful basket for me! I was so excieted and I love everything in it including the awesome basket itself. I took this picture which does not do it justice because you cant see whats in it! So Sweet ! I love it all! Thank you Genevieve! the next picture is of a little nest that was in the basket.. I stuck it in a plant.
this picture is of the basket I sent to Genevieve... ( i feel like this is all show and tell on blogland.. I think my next post needs more substance.. hmmm...) anyways.. She loved her basket! I'm so glad. I really did have fun making this basket up for her.

Hello all.. I'm back with a few more pictures from the doll swap! I do believe that there are only two more pics left to collect and post!
This beautiful mermaid was made by the very creative Kai and was sent to her partner Michelle.
OK.. Ive spent the past couple nights making these little bunnies and the little chickie for my secret pal at work. Except, that its really no secret, we sort of cheated so we could be partners! She is a dear friend of mine, seen a couple times on my blog already. she made her first appearance afor the halloween blog party as wanda the witch! then she was on not too long ago when we made miniature bears together.. anyways.. so shes my partner.. I dont know what shes making me, but its sure to be something awesome. I think shes doing some needle work!! she makes beautiful things!! so anyways, this is what I gave her and she loved all of it!
Now.. this is the icecream on the cake.. I joined the bunny crown swap at the faeriezine group on flickr and my partner was tracy of traSEAlee. She made the most wonderful crown. I about died when I opened the box. Each piece of the crown is soldered and each one has an adorable bunny picture in it or two actually as they each have a front and back. Really, I suggest you go to my flickr site where you can view the pictures on largest setting and really look at them. This is so awesome! I am sooo lucky! thank you soooo much Tracy!
this picture youve already seen, this is the one I made for the swap, which of course tracy got. I'm assuming she recieved hers today too! I hope she liked it
Well, I have to admit that i was totally distracted the whole time i was posting this. we were watching I AM LEGEND with Will Smith.. eye yie yie.... that was some movie.. I adore will smith, but though I couldnt help but watch the movie, I dont think I really liked it. It was pretty gross. and the ending sucked.. Just my opinion!

Hello Girls.. Its been a busy week.. I've been on call at work and put in quite a few over time hours in over the weekend. but I did have some time to play regardless! I finished my little lamb this weekend. I made her to lead my little easter parade train!
I've been recieving more pictures of dolls from the doll swap! This doll below was made by Sheila! Sheila has no blog.. so unfortunetly I dont know her! But you can see she did an awesome job on her precious little doll! I'm quite partial to raggedys, so this baby doll sings to me!!! This doll went to the lucky Sherrie!
This sweet bunny was made by one of my favorite artists out here in blog land.. Elaine . The precious bunny went to Debra another of my favorite artists! I have not seen what Deb made yet.
oops! I'm back with another doll! And isnt she awesome! This doll was made by Sammy and sent to Kecia! Im so impressed with all these dolls and all the creative talent girls!! I wish I could hold them all and look at them more closely! thanks girls! there are a few more out there that we havent seen though. Im soo hoping the girls will send me pictures!
... Speaking of my blog friend Debra, we had done a little swap of our own for valentines day. I recieved her package this week! She spoiled me with the cutest darn things! Thank you so much Deb!
IN this last picture, look at the sweet little chickie basket!! This I purchased from Dale at seadream studios! Ive actually purchases a few items from her! she makes such cute things!
OK.. enough pictures for now! a while back Elaine tagged me to do this and I noticed last night that Jenny tagged me for the same thing! so finally I am going to do it!
Ok.. well, there should still be a few more doll pics to post, if I get pics of them i will post them!
