My Elf on the Shelf, Miss Elle Towe

I'd like to introduce you to Miss Elle Towe.
She says you can just call her Elle.

Her whole life, Elle has been a toymaker in Santa's workshop (except for that brief and very embarrassing period where she tried to be a reindeer whisperer).

This year Santa decided to give her a shot at the highly desired position of Shelf Elf.

She's really hoping she'll make Santa proud!

Elle is about 11 inches tall. She has a wire frame so she can hold all sorts of fun poses.
This was the first time I've made a doll with a wire skeleton...and it certainly won't be the last!
She's quite a lot of fun to play with.

I created Elle for a challenge being held by Deedra's Art on Facebook (aka FoxyBlue ).
I'm so happy I saw this challenge and was able to participate!

Oh, and since I'll be spending the next few days in a house cleaning frenzy....Happy Thanksgiving!

Facebook and a New Doll!

I finally made a facebook page for my dolls!
I'll still be posting on my blog, but if you want to see my latest works in progress, you can follow me here. I have a feeling I'll be updating it pretty frequently. ;)
In other news, I have a new little doll to show you all!

This is Porridge.

Porridge is a quiet girl.
She loves nothing more than to curl up with a good book and a warm blanket on a cool evening.

What are you guys working on this week?
Can you believe Thanksgiving is just a week away!?

Introducing Persephone

The next week or so will be pretty exciting for me.
It's time for the seven dolls I've been working on to each take their turn deciding who they want to be.

I just love dolly birthdays. I think it's the best part of making dolls!

This little one decided to go first.

It's I was working on her, I kept trying to decide what her name would be.
I was pretty sure I had one picked out and everything.
As I put the last stitches on her though, she whispered the name she wanted and I knew it could be nothing else.
I always find it funny when a doll does this to me...especially since the name is one I never would've originally considered.
Anyway, this is Persephone.

She loves flowers and spring time.
She's a bit disappointed that her birthday is in the fall.
She also has a weakness for sweets (don't we all?).

Like all my Secret Keeper dolls, she's about 12 inches tall if you count her long legs.

She's now patiently waiting for her sisters to be finished!
