We had a very sad weekend as our oldest kitty Teeds passed away.He has been a member of our family for 20 years and will be sadly missed.We adopted him into our family when my son was 8 and I was 28 and it seems like he has been with us forever as my son will be turning 28,the same age as I was when we got him.Above is a photo of Teeds when he was younger and in his prime.It broke my heart to see him go but he didn't suffer,and I thanked god for that.He was a sweet and gentle soul and we will miss him dearly.

My Bassak Blythe(clone)dolls arrived yesterday and I just love them!I did a wee bit of customizing on them and thought it would be fun to have them pose with my new kitty designs in the making.As you can see they have all became very good friends in no time at all.The 2 painted cloth kitties,blue and pink will become polka dottys with little clown hats and skirts,the kitty clown is the hint I gave in the last post,a shabby chic cottage style clown.All the roses and leaves have been hand painted onto the fur.The white kitty that the girls love cuddling in the hutch with is the white little 7 inch kitty that I wrote about in my last post.The new kitties need a bit of work before they are completed but will look much better with their finishing touches.I have to say that these sweet little dolls are quite addicting and I almost couldn't stop taking photos of them lol!Well I hope you enjoyed meeting the new dollies and designs and I will post as soon as they and the special orders are completed.~~~~~Sharie

Hi everyone!Time has once again flew by since my last post and I am sorry about that.I have been consumed working on new designs while trying to complete special orders,8 due this month!I am also currently working on a new smaller 7in kitty design which will be fully jointed and sweetly dainty.I also have some new supprise kitty designs to share with you once they are completed(hint...shabby chic).Also during my time away I have finally been bitten by the Blythe doll addiction!I knew it would happen eventually by seeing these sweet dolls on Etsy and on flickr,so I did some research and found them too be quite expensive so I opted for the clone to customize,the Basaak doll.Well I couldn't stop at one,so I ordered two(as shown in their auction pics)a brunette and a redhead.It will take a couple of weeks for them to arrive and I feel like I am adopting children,I can't wait to see them in person!I also have a little vent I need to share about someone who is getting very close to my style of designs.I guess that I felt a bit hurt by this as this person is someone I have great respect for.I wont mention names but I have this person on my blog list here and when I visited that blog I have to say I was shocked,but will leave it at that....for now.I know that my work and style has been around long enough for people to look at my designs and automaticly associate that this is indeed my style.So that being said,I will be busy working to finish my new designs and special orders and share their photos once they are completed.~~~~~Sharie
