Miniature doll and bear swap!!!!!

hello all.. Ok Ladies! .. finally, I think I'm ready to undertake the next swap.. A miniatures swap! There were quite a few people interested in doing this swap. We will make either a miniature doll or bear and include some small prop with it. Miniature meaning under 6 inches tall. The doll or bear must be handmade by a very talented you. The prop can be either made by yourself or you may purchase something to go with it.

Sign ups are now through april 5th. Please sign up at my email You need to include your name,email address, home address, blog address, or flickr site. Or if you dont have a site, you need to provide me with a picture of something you've made! Please dont sign up unless your serious about it. I dont want anyone being let down! I do have to say that my last swap, the doll swap was 100%!!! Yay ladies! everyone that started, finished. This makes me sooo happy!

Ok.. so sign ups start now, and I think we will have a mail out date of May 10th! so that will give everyone from now til then to get their creative juices flowing to design , create and mail!!

Miniatures are where my heart is! I love tiny dolls, bears, toys, teasets.. anything little.. cant get enough of them.. so this swap really excites me!!!
Ok.. I will be checking my mail... ALOT! looking for lots of wonderful creative doll and bear makers wanting to make something tiny!
Heres a few pictures of some of my tiny things.. the first one is my ballerina elephant! She is one of my all time favorite creations..

This one is a shelf my husband built for me with some of my tiny friends.. I didnt make all of these.. but alot of them..

This is my first monkey.. ♪♪ the monkey he got drunk♪♪ do you know that song?

This is one of the first tiny bears I every made.. I think it was about 10 years ago..

This is from one day a few months ago when I dug out my old doll houses and got some of my friends together for a tiny tea party!!

OK! Now race off to sign up for the swap!!! Hugs to you all!!
