Re-style an old dresser for under $50!  

I desperately needed storage in my sewing room and since my sewing room doubles as my guest bedroom, whatever I chose needed to be functional but stylish.   As I have mentioned before, I love Fabric!  Every piece I buy, was bought with love and the thought that someday it would be transformed into something beautiful! The end result is,  I have fabric everywhere and that’s no way to treat any kind of precious cargo!  So I needed to get organized! Continue reading

My Latest Shabby Shriek Dolls

Hi Everyone, one of my favorite things to create are my Shabby Shriek Dolls.  I just finished two that I totally love.  Both are a bit more colorful than I have done in the past, but I am digging it!

Its interesting how my dolls have evolved over the few years and how other crafted dolls have inspired my own creations.  I have always loved dolls but only started creating my own a few years ago after I saw one of Junker Jane’s dolls.  I was hooked!  I thought….their not perfect, so any mistake really isn’t a mistake….gotta love that!  Plus they are kind of scary but in a beautiful way.

I decided that I had to make one of my own!  I had learned to sew when I was young, (Thanks Mom!) but I hadn’t sewn anything for years.  I hoped it was like riding a bike, once you learn you never forget.   It ended up that making these dolls involves very little sewing and what little there is, is straight lines!  Again, perfect for me!   My very first doll was primitive but I immediately fell in love with her.  I still have her, she sits on the shelf overlooking my work table with another one of my “firsts”.  She is pictured below.
