Sheila Fairy Doll

Sheila's doll was also fun to make. Actually all of my dolls have been really fun for me to create. Sometimes I dont know what I am going to add to them so they will sit on my table..and I will look at them each day and finally something will come to mind. This is one like that. I had her head made and her body...but wasnt sure what to add for the hair. Then finally little by little she came together. I found this golden colored hair extension at the dollar store of all places and just had to have it! I knew exactly what I was going to do with it...so instead of her having wings....she has this wild hairdo... I added a cute ring with a green stone in her hair... I was on this shopping spree on Ebay one day....well...maybe it was more than one day...just dont tell my husband...Hehehe...anyway, I ordered a bunch of charms and beads, and findings...and so on...great prices! And so that is how I ended up with the cute hand charm on her. Even though its upside down...it makes her unique! One of my biggest problems I have had all these years...is I could never mass produce an item. I did crafts for many years with my best friend who now lives in NY...and we did some mass producing of our crafts....but I got bored so easily...I cant do the same thing over and over...I will search to all ends of the world if I have to to come up with something different. My mind is always thinking...dont know if that is a bad thing or not...but I cant shut it off...so you will see more and more of my creations.. These dolls are all new to me, I havent been making them long at all. I think its only been a few months now that I have been putting these together. So, I have a long way to go before I move on to something new...cuz I really like how these are turning out...

As always, I would love to get some feedback on my artwork, so please drop me a line when you get a chance...
