HelloI recently did a swap with a Facebook group. The person I was sending these items to is a fan of fall. That was the theme and I created a 3d Doll, a zentangle leaf with the person's first name sent in a glass frame, quilled flower and 3d quilled pumpkin with leaves at the bottom of the pumpkin. The first picture is the photo the person who received the items in the mail and posted it in the swap group. The rest of the photos below are photos of the items that I took before I sent them in the mail. But with different views to see more sides of the items. I have two other fall dolls that I created that I will bring to next craft show I hope to post pictures soon but not sure if I will get around to do that. Click on the photos below and maybe they will show bigger. Enjoy.
Quilled 3d Autumn Doll: took about 6 hours or more to create.skin tone is from manila file folders, fancy trim added to waist and hat and front of dress. The dress is 11 inches wide at bottom and dolls is 12 inches tall.

I have also creating altered spoons for the next craft show too. My mother liked a few of them and suggested I make a few and see if they sell. This altered spoon is made from book pages along with the person sitting in the spoon reading a book is made of book pages.
I have been slowly building up stash of new products to sell at this year's craft shows. I normally do not show off what I am bringing. I recently got into paper beading and started rolling my own paper beads. Some of these are painted in nail polish or glitter. Using pinterest and you tube has hooked me in certain new crafts and maybe a few of them will emerge in the next few months. I am new at jewelry making so I have a lot to learn. If you or anyone are interested in any of the pieces below come out to the shows. You can find a list of the shows if you click on the appearance tab on my blog. Hopefully I will see you at the next show.
