The People Who Lift Me Up

A doll, but not really a doll...

After all the pin cushion talk at Madame Sam's blog I had to jump on the pin cushion bandwagon. I wanted to make a pin cushion but at the same time a doll so I compromised.

So, why did I choose to make what I made? Well, my bedroom is also my craft/sewing/creating room but I often times like to sit out in the living room and sculpt so that I can be around my boys while they play the video game or watch TV and such. I know they must get tired of seeing all my girly girly stuff so I decided to make a pin cushion that would make them say "hey mom that's cool"... So out of the works came my little goth doll pin cushion.

I do think she might appreciate arms and legs at some point don't ya think?

Below is the pin cushion I have been using which is a gorgeous piece of art in itself made by Sherry Goshon at

Sherry is an amazing artist and last I checked she had a couple more of these type pin cushions for sale on her ETSY site.

Oh, before I go I would like to note that I have made a new blog for non-doll related "this and that" chat and that is where I moved my earlier tattoo post to. The blog link is

  2. That is a very cute pincushion. She is looking a bit sorry for herself so perhaps you can give her arms and legs to make her happy.

  3. Now I was pretty sure I just wrote something and then it
