Lil' Rose Monster Doll . . . #23 - Turn Two

"Love is the most important thing in the world,
but baseball is pretty good too." 
~ Yogi Berra




I wasn't sure if I was going to like this doll while I was working on it . . . and I kept changing my mind as I was adding detail to him.  Now that it is finished - I like it better than I thought it would.  
#23 - I am naming him "Turn Two".
I have my little hippie monster listed in my ETSY shop -  clarehelen and will list this little monster soon.  

skeleton thoughts . . .

Yes . . . . Halloween items are already in stores.  Yes . . . . it is way to early for that.
. . . and Yes . . . I had to buy this skeleton.

A new little monster . . .








She started out with wearing a beanie . . . but ended up with a headband.  
She has feathers in her hair . . . a button on her butt . . . and lots of monster magic.

Lil Rose Monster . . .





I've been thinking about making some monster dolls for sometime.  I started selling my Shabby Charlotte dolls after my granddaughter Charlotte was born.  I made her a Halloween doll . . . and people who saw it suggested that I sell them.  
We have a new granddaughter - Avery Rose.  So I decided it was time to start a new line of my dolls and name these little monsters after her . . . "Lil Rose Monsters".  
These are going to be fun to make!

new shabby charlotte doll . . .






This doll was so much fun to make . . . and I love how she turned out.
When I stain my doll bodies . . . I brush them with coffee and put them in the oven on low heat and let the coffee do what it's going to do.  I am not sure what happened to her face . . . I guess she was just meant to be a creepy little doll.  I have a few little things to do with her yet . . . and I will get her listed in my ESTY shop.  
If you like silly . . . and sometimes creepy little dolls take a look. 
She would make a wonderful decoration for Halloween.

Shabby Charlotte doll - Nova

Meet Nova - I just listed her in my ETSY shop . . . clarehelen 
I like how she looks sitting by the turquoise bottle and planter.


Nova is a simple little doll that makes every day special.
She believes in magic . . . the kind of magic that surrounds all of us if we simply take the time to notice it and to practice it.  The magic of a smile . . . the magic of kindness . . . the magic that you find when you look for the joy in the journey.  She tries to laugh as much as she can, she likes to eat lemon cake for breakfast, and believes in love . . . always.
