charlotte & chalk . . .

 This is the skeleton that Charlotte came up with.
I love how it turned out.  
She seems to be into making things look creepy these days . . . 
. . . I wonder where she gets that from?

making me smile today . . .

This is when I start having fun making a doll . . . 
I am not sure what I am going to do with these yet - but that is also part of the fun.
 Avery came to visit me at work yesterday. . . 
. . . evidently she likes to doodle also!

 . . . and a new coffee mug.  
Happy Friday!

Happy October . . .

I cannot help myself when it comes to decorating for Halloween.
I thought I would share some of the decorations I have out this year.
I am not sure where this obsession with Halloween came from . . . but it just keeps growing.


Derby has been delivered . . .

 Once again I participated in Yarnigras' Zombie Doll Swap
Now that Derby has been delivered . . . I can post picture of her.
This year we had to make a miniature zombie.  I really need to make 
some more of these little dolls.  
 Derby is a unique little zombie . . . smaller than most.
She is fun loving, competitive, kind, and fun to be around.
When she is not wandering around looking for delicious humans
. . . you will find her skating and spending time with the
people she cares about. 
They don’t seem to mind that she is a zombie . . .
. . . they just love her for who she is!
Derby doesn’t mind being a zombie . . . if she gets knocked down,
she simply gets back up and keeps going.
Be her friend and she will roll with you until her wheels fall off.  
 Derby with the other items that went along with her in the 
Zombie Doll Swap.
Sometimes little zombie dolls like to hide out . . . 
. . . what better hideout than a black lace bag.

Zombie Cat . . .

I received this great zombie cat in Yarnigrasswapperspot's zombie doll swap.
It is always fun to participate in this swap.
My swap partner this year happened to live very close . . . so instead of shipping our dolls we met in person to trade them.  This little zombie cat and her zombie mice are so much fun!
She also had this great coffee mug in her bag . . . and the great bone pens below.
My granddaughter Charlotte had to take one of the bone pens to use at school   :)
Thank you Natalie - I love my little zombie cat!

Derby . . .

She is finished . . . her name is Derby.  I have to wait to post photos until she is delivered.
I am also getting a skeleton ready to go along with her.  
I love doing this Zombie Doll Swap!

zombie bath . . .

I am finally working on some dolls. 
A little zombie body always benefits from a soak in Death Wish Coffee.

doodles and zombies . . . .

I ordered a morbid new color book from Amazon . . . Not all the pages are quite this bad.  
Well, maybe they are.  LOL
I just seemed to be a coloring book that I should have. 
My family looked at me a little funny when I showed it to them.
You would think they know me by now.  
I will have to post more photos of it later.  
zombies . . . skeletons . . . scarecrows . . . bats . . . my kind of coloring book  :)

Zombie Doll Swap 2019

It's that time of year again.
I love this swap!
Yarnigras Zombie Doll Swap
I get to make a zombie doll . . .
I get to receive a zombie doll . . .
and it usually gets me motivated to start making dolls again.
It also means Halloween is right around the corner. :)

She loves to paint when she comes to visit Amma.
This visit we painted Monster Rocks!

beautiful . . .

 Isn't she beautiful?  :)
Her dress and slip are made out of an old cami . . . with the headband made from the strap. 
 I love using old items when I make things.  Sometimes I just go into my closet and decide to use something I haven't worn in a long time.  
Skeletons in June . . . of course!
I think she needs a handbag . . . 

summer hair . . .

My summer hair for 2019.  I have a new boss this coming year.  I forgot to tell him that I do this at the end of the school year and it may have caught him off guard . . . or maybe not.   This was a couple of weeks ago . . . it is fading into a fun pink/peachy color.  There was some bright yellow in it that is hard to see in this picture.  I wish I would have added more yellow . . . maybe next time.
Where have I been?  I haven't posted in so long.  Let's see if I can get back to blogging this summer.   Happy Friday!

Be . . .

I found this on my desk after I came back from lunch.
My friend Jessica gets me . . . and this note made a huge difference in my day.
Find your joy for today!
