New Toys & Primitive Joys

Mimi....she looks like shes thinking "yup... Im so cute,its all about me"!

This is why I LOVE swaps! Kelly from Missori sent me these goodies. Thank you Kelly. I am a spoiled but happy woman with my new primitive toys and joys. I got a bunny, an angel, a homespun placemat, speckled & primitive muslin eggs that she made, a candle, and rosehips in a bag w/ lil teeny tiny clothespins...too cute. Thank you Kelly.

I also took a break from the large primitive doll order Im working on so I could express my own passion to detail. I love making someone elses patterns for their shoppes which Im hired to do now with this particular order, but its hard being a doll maker, not to add your own details such as faces, or hair, or a button here, or a jingle bell there, but I cant if its NOT in the pattern!!! so after being on doll 4 of this persons order, I just had to break camp and create MiMi. I originally wanted to make a little boy wabbit. I even had a name to go with who I had in mind...Dooley.
However Mimi just blossomed out of nowhere & Im so glad she did. I am head over carrots in love with this baby. Let me know what you think.... Her big juicy primitive carrot shell be soon marinading in some Spring stew & wont be ready till morning.
After designing and creating Mimi, Im now ready to go back to my large shoppe order, it was so nice to take a break. Ive really got the best of both worlds, able to work for others, and still unleash whatevers inside of this crazy heart of mine. I hope you like her as much as I do.
