I'm glad I have my darling daughter that brings lots of "sunshine" to my life in every situation! (I could need that since we haven't seen the sun in several days here) I tend to be a bit too negative, but she is just filled with positive energy! I have a lot to learn from her =)
I haven't felt like doing any miniatures lately.. But I did try to fur a dog. I would love to be able to make a dog from clay and put fur on it, but I think its really hard.. Have to look at youtube some more..
My needlefelting is on ice, I tried making something, but like I said, I didn't felt like it, and it never gets any good when I'm not in the right mood, so I just broke a needle... (first time I broken a needle) so I gave up. I hope to get back my joy for needle felting soon. Until then I focus on my dolls =)
I couldn't resist unpacking Dexter =)
So here are some quick pictures I took this weekend.
The glasses were held in place with a rubber band. And Dexter's head was held in place in the box with a plastic thing that I had to cut loose, the plastic thing made a tiny hole in his neck, I hate it when they do that to dolls, why not just tie him up with a string, instead of making a hole in his head?!
Finally he can see, the glasses were a bit tricky to get on, since the hair was full of glue and in the way..
The crown are held in place with plastic things, that goes through his head..
Don't know if I'll cut them lose or not. (more plastic things that makes a hole in the head)
I wish the bag was made of fabric, and not just a hard plastic bag.. But it's an OK bag.
My daughter wanted to be in every picture this day =) (but I don't want to show her online..) But she got to wave her doll in the back =)
Over all I'm very happy with both my Madeline and Dexter doll. I do prefer Madeline, but I wont tell Dexter that ;) He feels a bit more stiff than Madeline. But he is a great and beautiful doll. I never had much interest for male dolls, but I really like this one.
Now I'm just waiting for some inspiration to build some kind of scene for them.
