The People Who Lift Me Up

Halloween Uht Oh! Embir Nyte would love to say hello...

...before she heads off to her first day of witch elementary school.

Oh what a yummy sweet Halloween treat Embir Nyte is! I cannot tell you how much fun and enjoyment I had while bringing this little witch to life. I put so very much time and effort into everything about her including her outfit which I designed and sewed myself.

The hat! Oh now the hat I am very proud of! I knew what I wanted to created in my mind but I did not have any patterns for it. I do say it came out fabulous indeed for my first withches hat, wouldn't you say?

But before I talk about Embirs outfit I want to talk about her! I did several new things with her, the first and most noticeable being her eyes. They are much more detailed then my standard eyes and I love how they came out. The next being her sweet lips. Aren't they just the cutest? Both of these areas I used wonderful techniques learned in Kat's and Kim's online classes. You can take the classes too at CDA!

I also chose to do a straight arm on Embir which I made sure was floppy enough to have fun with while posing. Ofcourse her hands have all the wonderful detailing I put into all my hands but have extra shading to them.

Ooooo the tootsies! My favorite thing to talk about! Do I love baby tootsies or what? Couldn't you just smooch these precious baby feet all over? Foot fetish me? Nah, I actually care very little for adult feet. Nope all my love is for those darling baby and toddler feet. So yes I suppose I have a baby foot fetish lol.

Now her outfit I created from my own design using the most wonderfully rich fabrics. The bodice and pantaloons I made using a thick super soft rust colored chenille and the sleeves, bows on the legs, and witches hat I made using a fabulous corduroy earth tone print. Is she not sporting the most wonderful fall colors?

I definitely think Miss Ember is happily ready for her first day at Wiggly Warts Witch & Wizard Elementary School don't you?
Ember is for sale on my website:

Oh wait, I must update, Embir is now sold and has found a happy new home!

Oh what a suprise when I opened one of my favorite magazines to read...

I do believe my eyes looked just like this when I opened the November issue of one of my favorite magazines.

 I am so tickled and honored that three of my creations were featured in the wonderful magazine Soft Dolls & Animals.

Jin Jin and Dymmie were just beaming to be pictured in the "From the Orient" display...

Beetyle Bew and Boo were just as equally beaming to be featured on the "Last Peek" page...

Me? Well I have been non-stop bouncing since I opened the magazine! I am truly honored and just right down happy!

Thank you SD & A!

So onto what I have been up to...

In the doll world I have been working on my Halloween Uht Oh and I have to say I am beyond pleased with her progress. I just finished up her outfit today and I couldn't be more happy. Oh wait until you see her hat! Oh this hat just had me on my toes while I was making it. I think I should have made it a tad larger to fit my head rather then hers! I will finish sewing and sculpting her body up so she should be posted sometime this week. Keep your eyes peeled because she will be a true Halloween treat!

In family life we have all been scrambling. Oh it's a good sort of scramble this time. We have 30 days to finish saving up for a down payment on a house. YES! I said house! It's a very small house but a truly lovely house full of charm that just makes you smile when you walk in. Because it's a much smaller house then anything we have lived in yet we are gearing up for a large yard sale this weekend. Hopefully it will not be too cold. Wish us luck!

I will be so very busy in the next coming months but I just cannot go too awful long without missing you all terribly so I will be peeking whenever I can!
