little gnomey girl

little gnomey girl, originally uploaded by annieoakleaves.

I dont think that female gnomes get enough credit so I decided to try to make some.now that she is done though she seems to be bugging me for a Mr. So I guess I will get on that.Maybe after Christmas though,I seem to just be barely keeping up with everything I wanted to do. Isnt it that way for everyone every year? I bet Martha had her shopping done in June. :P

Martha Stewart er I mean Martha Mushroom

I don't have alot of time tonight but I wanted to show you what I finished today.This is my Martha Stewart tribute mushroom! she actually started out as Frannies Mr. (sorry Frannie) but she was just screaming out to me that she longed to be Martha Stewart.(probably due to the fact that I tape every Martha show and watched them while sewing) She has a wooden spoon(always use a wooden spoon) a rubber spatula and a nice "faux" jadite bowl. She even has a nice faux bois dress that I know Martha would love to go with her large faux bois collection.Ok so maybe Im a little stalkerish but I swear I dont have pictures of Martha cut out and taped all over my walls! Anyway I have pictures of Martha doing interesting things in my flickr.. and you can have her for your very own if you go to my etsy :)

Franni's Silly New Hedgehog Friend

It's always hard for me to send my dolls away .By the time they are done I have created an entire world and life for them in my mind.There have been a couple occasions where I have had to borrow them back for photos and I was quite shocked at the condition they were in.lol But it looks like Gretchen is giving Frannie a good home and lots of company!
I spend alot of time haunting Gretchens shop,flickr and blog lately. You should check her out too!

Meet Franni Fungi

I just finished her today while sitting in front of the space heater with my feet getting warm under the dog.There IS a Mr. but at this time he is headless and not too happy about it.I can hear him calling to me from the living room.(without a mouth even!) but alas the dirty dishes are calling me even more loudly. blah ;P

Long Legged Lucy

When my oldest daughter was little she always seemed to attract butterflies.One day one landed on her head and I was lucky enough to have the camera.Unfortunately years later when our house flooded it was lost.I decided to make this doll and photograph it to replace the photo I lost.I know it kind of seems silly to keep the photo and get rid of the doll but by the time Im done replacing all of the photos everyone in my family will have a house full of dolls.:) Oh,Im listing mushrooms wednesday!
