Friday, May 12 will be my only shop update of the month, and I love this little collection of animals and ladies. In addition to the dolls there will be doll clothing available – they will be listed in my shop under their clothing category (jackets, pants, etc) with a drop down menu for choosing the fabrics available. I get asked all the time about doll clothing, so I hope a lot of you have fun dressing up your dolls!

Update in my Etsy Shop tomorrow at 12 noon (CST in Saskatchewan) – Have a wonderful weekend!

Hello! My next shop update will be taking place this Thursday, March 23 at noon CST in my Etsy shop. I am so excited to say that I have 20 dolls (!!) to be listed – In my world, that’s a lot of dolls! There are lots of full sized (14″) dolls and 6 very wee elves (10″ and come with a sleeping bag) and a couple of sweet otters.

After my last shop update I had many people contact me because they weren’t able to snag the one they wanted – The thing about Etsy is that multiple people can have the same item in their cart and the first person to check out is the one who gets it. I know, crazy. And though I can’t guarantee anything, my advice is to already have an Etsy account, and be logged in to PayPal if you are paying that way. I am happy to refund any shipping overcharge if you place multiple separate orders. I list the dolls right at noon, so refreshing my shop page at that time should bring the listings up for you to view. If there is a doll you have your heart set on, please keep this all in mind.

I am so excited to see where these dolls will find their new homes – Happy Spring and enjoy your week!

New Shapes, New Dolls

Every once in a while I get the feeling that something needs to change (of course, in my everyday life, I get that feeling a lot – forever restless). The dolls needed to be revived, I needed toΒ  stay interested. So I spent some time fooling around with shapes and made a few new patterns – I love these narrow, easy to hold bodies and thin limbs (even though they take considerably more time to turn and stuff!). There is a sweetness and elfishness about these dolls that intrigues me and makes me want to make one after the other, just to see what the next one will look like – it’s a surprise, even to me, until all the parts come together. Keep an eye out for more like this in the shop – I will be adding them as they are made. Here’s to the beginning of summer!

Bon Voyage

Earlier this week I was cleaning out my studio. I have a lot of supplies and a pretty small space to keep them, so it doesn’t take long before it feels tight. These four big animals had been keeping me company in there for the last year since I made them as part of the Imaginary Architects exhibit at the Saskatchewan Craft Council. I am pretty fond of them, simply because of their size, but I knew it was time to make room, and perhaps someone else would like to adopt them. I put out a call on instagram for anyone wanting to give them a home, and within the day they were off – one locally, one to BC, one to New Hampshire, and One to the UK. I set them in our porch while they waited to be boxed up, and I kind of loved the sight of them there. Also, a shot of me looking like we are telling jokes, when really I am just trying to keep everyone upright after dashing into the photo (I’ll likely never relinquish the self timer…). Bon Voyage sweet animals, it was fun.
