Tender Arts Studio

Dolly Dingle (sold)


Amy (sold)

Oh, Friends! I've been so busy! I had a lovely three day weekend doing what I love- making little pretties! I just listed some new goodies in my shop and when I get home from work I'll be listing more. I was super happy and encouraged last week when a nice lady from Cardiff-by-the-Sea bought Amy and my Scrappy Charm pillow! It just really gave me the boost I needed to get to work on finishing some of my projects and get them listed. I'll also be listing some vintage aprons that are SO cute plus one handmade apron that I was so excited about, but when I finished it, it didn't fit me! Darn those vintage patterns made for those skinny women of yesteryear!

Scrappy Charm Pillow (sold)


My goal now is to complete and list one doll per week. I think it's do-able. That way my shop won't get empty again and there will be plenty of dollies to pick from. I don't know if I have mentioned before that I am available for custom orders too. You can look at my "sold" items at etsy or check out my flickr set to get ideas for a doll you would like to have or give to a little girl.

Rooster Pillow (sold)


One new thing that I have decided to institute is free dolly spa treatments for the dolls I have specified as child friendly. I know that kids can get kind of rough so if I sell a doll that I say is suitable for children, I will fix it up again if it needs it. Hair, especially, seems to "go astray" and I want happy customers with happy children! The only expense to my customers is the cost to mail the doll to me. I will cover the postage back. So many dolls are factory-made and disposable, but I want my dollies to last for a very long time.



Now that I am not hunched over my needle, I am looking forward to visiting all my bloggy friends! Hugs to all!

That is a great idea, to offer beauty treatments. But, I love the way dolls get so beat up and messy, but the little girls don't seem to notice. It just shows the love!
