Happy at Last!

Happy at Last!

This is Sam. Two days ago she was telling me how sad she was because she wasn’t pretty enough. Well, I have been talking to her and we went on a long walk through the forest and we talked. She had never been in the forest before and it made her so happy! She forgot all about trying to be someone she isn’t and found something that makes her happy, NATURE! She found a leaf with a lady bug on it and an acorn. They are her treasures and she loves them so much! She just doesn’t care about trying look like a girl, just call her Sam. She loves to be outside all the time looking for new treasures. She will be on Etsy within a few minutes.

Please meet Sam

Please meet Sam

Meet Sam, soon she will be my newest addition on my Etsy shop. She is still missing something but I am not sure exactly what yet, but I know she needs something feminine. She was born with dark blue gingham skin and and feels like she looks like a boy. I added outstretched arms because she really needs a hug to feel pretty. She prefers to be called Samantha, however everyone just calls her Sam whether she likes it or not. She really wants to be pretty but she whispered to me that she feels very plain and ordinary. I of course told her she was beautiful just the way she is but it just doesn’t seem to help her. She does not want to be put on ETSY until she looks more like a girl, so I promised her I would find just the perfect thing for her. Look for her soon at

I am back to creating “stuff N things”

 This is my new art doll I am working on.

This is my new art doll I am working on.

My new sewing machine is so wonderful! I started making a doll, but suddenly got a the urge to make curtains and pillows for my living room so now that I have finished with that. I started back on the doll again. It is so much fun just being able to let go and be “weird” once in a while and make weird stuff.

I haven’t named her yet, but her personality is starting to come out to me a little at a time and I think I am learning her “back story” with each stitch. I can’t wait to share all of her with you, but here is what a picture of her so far. I am working on her hair today and will start on her dress. Then, will I get to be really unique and creative with her, once I get the basics all on.

Finally sewing again

IMG_1571My sewing machine has been out of commission for a while, well it still worked but , only if I spent 20 minutes adjusting it to ever 1 minute of sewing time. Anyway, I got my new sewing machine and I finally got to start using it. I could not be happier with it! I made curtains for my living room windows! I am so happy about it. We have had bare windows for a while now,
It’s a long story, but we have had bare windows in the living room since we moved in. I honestly did not think we would be here more than 6 months, but now it’s been 2 years. I finally made curtains! What do you think?

A New Doll

My new sewing machine is working like a dream! For a few days I spent working on my doll. I have tried one of these dolls a couple of years ago and I just couldn’t get her to look right, but this time I know a little bit more about sewing and how things go together. I really think she is coming along really well so far. I am very excited to watch her come together. 

I decided to take a break and today I made a curtain for my window. It’s not all the way finished, and I still have another one to make for the living room but once I get them both up and hanging, I will show you what they look like. 

I am so excited for my doll to come together. My sewing machine is really doing great and I have yet had to re-thread it because it breaks or knots up! Woo-hoo! ImageD
