I’ve never actually met a live mermaid, & I am NO dollmaker by any means…BUT (there’s always a but isn’t there?) my dear sweet niece Olivia has a birthday, and as she looked at me with her baby blues, I turned into putty,,,she requested I make her another mermaid doll…NO not just an “ordinary” mermaid doll, it must must have “zebra stripes” (yup, she said zebra stripes) Okay, so thank you God for blessing my sweet “Livvy” with an imagination! Warning this might get ugly, but as long as she likes it and knows it was made with 100% pure love, my job is complete!! I even gave her doll a crown, I mean a Mer-gurl needs a crown, right??
Used my shimmery lime green sparklie ink that showed up well on the brown…..It was a lot of fun, and I’m sure the postal workers once again….just LOVE me……NOT…I’ve done worse though, so I think I was pretty tame on these!! lol. I love creating fun mail for others to open. My hope is to make the recipient feel special and well thought of…as with 99% of the things I mail, it’s made with 100% LOVE!!
Having a baby shower for my first Grandson, so very excited!! Made some invites…I designed them in a really long format, I attached them together with my sewing machine and a zig zag stitch, folden them in half, they fit great in chocolate brown business size envelopes….so much fun!!!
