A Happy New Year...Already!

Wow, time does fly when you're having fun...Where did 2011 go?   I have to say, I'm not one for making NY resolutions, but, for once I promised myself to be much more organized with both my craft space and my craft projects, although to be fair, I was doing OK until someone decided to throw a spanner in the works! (Moose costume, anyone?)   So, for this year I will write myself a list of things I want to accomplish, and dates that they need to be done by, so I won't be stiching wings at the very last minute!
This is a doll I made for my niece for Christmas, a couple of weeks ago now (time does fly!)

I used a pattern from the ever popular Tone Finnanger , and I would highly recommend this book though it's more suitable for an experienced doll maker (it could prove to be a little frustrating to a novice)  and there are so many other beautiful projects in the book that I think I will run out of time before I ever run out of things to make LOL.   This was my very last crafty endevour for 2011...
And I just finished my very first ATC and card for the new year, both of them were for the current Darkroom Door ATC swap (Essentials 8), here's a sneak:

So, did you make any New Year resolutions?

Gorgeous doll! I can relate to your resolutions too, though I do have to say that the fabulous moose costume was a worthy interruption in an otherwised organized system. And those ATCs! Wow - the sneak peeks are so tantalizing - the colours are sensational!

Hi Vicky, Happy New Year. That doll is so cute! Just love the dress, the hair, the cute face, your niece loved it I am sure. My main resolution this year is to not procrastinate quite so much. Hope you have a great week!
