A short time ago, I climbed the fence and jumped into a new blog neighborhood. That's when I found Elizabeth at CreativeBreathing.
It is a world of sweetness and whimsy sprinkled with touching stories like yarn in a bird's nest. She makes the most expressive little characters and spool dolls. I even tried to buy one but they aren't for sale. But, Elizabeth graciously shares patterns and tutorials of her creations. Well, I saw this little pink cake lady and I had to have one . And the only way that was going to happen was for me to take the dive and try making it myself. I made mine a shelf-sitter but the original stands on its own. Elizabeth and I also share a fondness for vintage greeting cards and you have to go see what she does with those. So I'm sending a big thank you out to Elizabeth for pushing me over the edge, I mean, encouraging me with her designs to try my hand at making my own. And yes, hers does look better but this was my first one!
