mail call~

this wonderful doll came in the mail nestled in tightly
with a bag of dark chocolate covered ginger...
it came all the way from nova scotia courtesy of my wonderful friend lani....
she recently took a class making dolls from pipe cleaners, fabric strips and ribbon. wwe both decided that we would d a 1for1 swap...her dolls face is a button which i love and she picked it up at this cool bead shop in bellevue, washington on our way to artfest this past year.....
lani, i love her and the hidden rock and the beautiful bell she carries on her arm..
xoxtis is a sneak peak of my doll that will be on its way to nova scotia, i waasnt sure how to form the body as lanis was formed with pipe cleaners and foam rubber, mine on the other hand is formed with those plastic grocery bags....she is tall and thin but i really love how she turned out..and i hope lani loves her too....
hope y'all are having a great fall monday!!
it is so beautiful here in ohio..

You have received a wonderful doll Kim and now I am longing for Lani to receive hers so you can show us the whole thing.
