Thank you so much for your patience as I work on your commissioned dolls.

Well I have been sleeping all day. Very sick. Shivers! I hate that. I am taking ever natural remedy there is and then some. Hoping it is short lived.

So I am feeling like a little sick this today. Woke up with a sore throat and congestion. Terrific. Trying to get as much done as possible in case it gets to be something real. Still working on my two projects. Got everything shipped.
Dollar Store rollers didn't work. Velcro is a bad idea for doll hair - FYI

So today was a little slow on the painting side of things. I do wish at times I could go faster. Prep time is always forgotten. Finding the right picture to use to paint by, getting paint ready, preparing the doll.. getting more coffee! I prepped both dolls so I can just move onto the next as soon as I finish with the first. Hopefully pictures by Thursday of these two but no later than Friday late afternoon.
I found some rollers I might be able to use for dolls at the dollar store. I have to cut them down but I am crossing my fingers. Will test run them on an older doll. Didn't find much else to work with. Always on the hunt for things that are good for my dolls. I bought some little hair clips from the dollar store once and they just broke. I will have to get the good ones. Oh well - I tried them.

Time to move on and get things done. No one likes a cry baby! I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I didn't get a lot accomplished work wise yesterday. While there are many fabulous perks to being your own boss (best boss I ever had) there is also a downside to running things yourself. One person can't do it all unfortunately. While I wish I could or even sometimes fool myself into believing I can something always gets left in the dust. Being a people pleaser that hates to say NO is problematic as well. I get things done that are immediate and I do the other things when I can. I could do better. I think we all could. I could do worse though and I have.
I have written a mental list of things to do. Going to write an actual one or something will get forgotten. I have shipping that didn't get done yesterday to do. I have a few emails to answer. But I am going to start with painting because I paint best when I am fresh in the morning and I will have the other things for the afternoon. I am going to paint Sister Dreary today. I know I am passing over the Elves but I have not planned them out. I will be doing elves all in a row and Sister Dreary goes home with the Snow Leopard I already painted. So I need to send them home together. Also, I finished up Luke and never put Anakin on the list. He is also needing to be finished and sent home together with his dad. So these are my projects for the next several days. Then starting Monday of next week I will be working on elves only. Then Mariah and the Winchesters the following week. Then back to elves again. So I have the next three weeks planned out.

Please follow me on Instagram where I photograph a great deal of what I am working on. I also do a better job posting pictures on Facebook. I have two pages plus my personal page. Please like my pages on Facebook! I appreciate all the support I can get! Thanks!
I work full time as a doll artist 5 to 6 days a week. I have a studio office. In the evening I have been doing some art with colored pencils during my down time watching TV. I guess I have busy hands. I have Sunday off.
Please see completed dolls below.
Check back here to see if I am working on your doll. I will remove the commission from the list once the doll/dolls have been shipped. But you can look below to see pictures of all of the dolls I have completed. Thanks!!
