There's a new KID in TOWN + a GIVE AWAY


 
And I'm in WONDERLAND myself too!
I'm so pleased to introduce to you my very first cloth doll.
I kinda 'hear' ya thinking: are you "Are you going back to the roots" Thea?
As many of you may know that Milly Me started in 2007 
with custom made doll clothes & doll bodies. So there is a huge link!
Answer to this question:
"Well, no not really, but since I was child I loved dolls and I probably will never stop doing so".

  
Creating a cloth doll was on top of my wish-list for a very long time.
And the circus theme is one of my favorites too.
And this summer - when business things slow down - was the perfect time to design
and make my very first doll.
I was a bit anxious: was I able to make what was already an idea in my head?
Plus the fact that my hubby had severe doubts about my new project too,
did not make it easier :o) !
But love to challenge myself over and over again and I just love the way she turned out!
I really love the colors on this piece: the soft aged peachy pinks & creams.
And on top of this: on a flea market I found the most PERFECT box
to complete and display this ensemble.
And to express my feelings about this piece of course!
I hope you like her as much as I do. 

 

I also invite you to:
 
I made two tag sets with Herald the Hare from Alice in Wonderland
and I will give them away here on my Blog. 
JUST TO THANK ALL MY FOLLOWERS
....since yesterday the ticker is at 200!!! YEAH!!!
A very warm welcome to: Marina from the Teddy School Blog, you are number 200!!!
You will receive a tag set......it's coming to ya..... 

 
The tags are perfect for gift tags, birthdays, showers, scrapbooking accents like above etc.  
In other words: so many uses for these tags - the possibilities are endless!
You will receive 10 tags + a surprise tag.
They are all handmade of cream cardstock.
The distressed technique gives each tag a classic vintage look.
Due to the nature of the distressing technique, each tag may be slightly different but unique and authentically handmade, all the same!
