I'm rather intrigued with ninjas at the moment. My Aunt & Cousin just came back from 2 weeks in Japan ... that's what must have triggered it!
Anyway ... I was looking around for something to paint a ninja on, and found these gingerbread man cutouts ... and I thought ... Ninjabread man!!!
I won this pattern from Bit Of Whimsy doll designs, and it's incredibly adorable (and easy to make). My love of novelty fabrics strikes again. I couldn't just go for the sweet little spots or flowers ... noooooooo. I had to have the camo flanelette! This tough, yet sleepy little man will be for sale in my new Etsy store when it opens soon ... a home for all my dollies.

The Annie dolls have created 'doll fever' in my house. Not content with one type of doll, I want more, more, MORE!!!
This beautiful design by Sarah of 'Bit of Whimsy' is usually created in a shabby chic style. But I wanted to use up my coffee scraps to create another Coffee Lovin' Doll. Isn't she cute?

Well ... I tried something new. Instead of making Annies one at a time, I thought I'd try a half dozen batch. It took about a week, and all the Finished Annies have different outfits, hair-do's and personalities. Here are just 2 of them. Yes ... I have a thing for Pirate Annies. Check out her teeny little hand-painted hat!!!!
What a thrill to find my work on someone else's blog. The lovely MonkeyBuns, from the land of Etsy has included one of my Fairy ACEO's on her blog. Feel free to check it out ...the other featured work is stunning, and it's an honour to be included with such incredible workmanship.
