Auction doll done, I think

HI! Everyone,
I think the HCBHP Auction doll is finished! I may add a few things, who knows. Her clothes are removable. The blouse is difficult to get off, thank goodness she has double jointed shoulders and feels no pain! She even has panties.
She might get beaded sandals. I may make her another hat/wig. She has a red fluffy one that I'm not happy with. I will probably modify it or make a new one.

Got any name suggestions? Petra? Porsche? Patti? Give me some input!

I have a few other dolls in my head that are screaming to get out. So, I will probably work on them through the summer.
Doll hugs,

The front yard

Here's a few pictures of the front yard in bloom. The bush Azaleas are just wonderful!!
Lovely flowers,


Exciting News!

I have exciting news!! My Bee and Saguaro Flower bead art piece has been accepted into the Bead and Button Bead Dreams Competition!! I am so,o,oooooo excited!! I shipped it off the other day, $102 for round trip shipping and insurance! And that was only insuring for half it's value! YIKES!

I also bought a new Digital SLR Canon 450D. I made a camera bag for it. It's a little on the large size but, I think I will evetually fill it up! I used a Polyfill product that is 1" thick and very stiff inside the bottom and sides. The lid has a pocket for paper, magazine or a map and pencils etc. I see now that I need a flap on the pocket. I spent about $20 instead of $70+ for a store bought one. It has it's flaws but it will do the job and look pretty, too!
