~Two Great Loves~




Since I am a huge fan of Hannah Davis bandboxes as well as Gritty Jane dolls, I decided to name my newest doll, Hannah Jane. I made her a small bandbox stuffed with a toile pin cushion to compliment her three Victorian nesting boxes. She looks so serious...not a hair out of place and certainly not anything like her creator!

Speaking of Jane, she is having another doll workshop which will start in January . I added a link to the workshop if you are interested in joining us. The workshop is being held on Ning, so you will need an account to take the class. Jane does a great job explaining all of this to make it very easy to participate. Here is the link: http://clothclaydolls.ning.com/

I am so excited about finding out this week who I get to send my "Little Token of Love" for the Valentine's Day swap. I will post a picture of what I made as well as what I receive after the swap. If you would like to be part of the swap, you still have time to sign up.

I love hearing from everyone. Please leave me a post, so I can visit your site and follow your blog.
