There's No Place Like Home!

Look what I've been up to! Two little 5" tall darling bendy dollies. They are a 1:12" scale, and on etsy right now ( http://www.littlescotia.com ) They've been a lot of fun to make, completely hand sewn. There were some fidgety bits when it comes to embellishments and painting faces, but SO worth it in the end.

It makes me happy to look at them.

I'm now attempting to make a little man to go with them ;) He's proving harder. Tiny little jeans actually made from jeans were time consuming, by hand.

I've been dividing my time between little scotia, http://www.vintagewitch.com and Watkins. I've been BUSY and my house is sorely neglected.

We had to deal with our covered gazebo flipping upside down last week. (a metal-covered-with-tarp jobbie) Unfortunately UNDER the gazebo BEFORE it flipped were 4 bags destined for the thrift store, and 4 boxes of "popcorn" to go into the garbage, left over from shipping breakables when I was an ebay junkie.

Now, all of it has been ruined by rain. I'm so SAD about it. And my yard looks absolutely horrible, until I can arrange for a truck to take it to the dump. (My tummy flips just like the gazebo did, when I think about all that stuff being dumped.)

Sigh. I know sometimes you just have to let things go, but I just feel so responsible, you know?

Who knew life could be so BUSY working from home? I need 3 more of me (and hopefully we wouldn't talk each other out of working, and drink coffee and craft instead. hahaha...)

Anyway, have a peek at what's new on etsy!
