Give up Yet???

They're my version of a nesting doll......

Aren't they sooo cute? :)

I tell ya, I 'bout went crossed eyed last night trying to get the black lines in. I used a Sharpie Marker, that was trying to die on me... I had to stop every 2 seconds to scribble on a piece of paper to get the ink flowing again. Then I went back and colored they're hair in with different colored Sharpies.... There's red, brown, blonde..... And I love how 'simple' they look.... I did do one with poka-dots, but it just didn't do it for me...


I was so happy to get them done...wanted to take them outside today and take pictures of my little army, but it's raining:( So you'll just have to make due with these:) ...when it stops raining, I can clear coat them, too.... I think I want them shinny:)

And since no one guessed it right, I decided that when the kid gets home, I'll let him draw a name from those of you that commented out of a hat:) Sound good??


I was also able to order some more posts yesterday. I still have these to mount... they'll go in my Etsy shop when they get finished.... I think I might try and mount some of the little ones, too.

...ok..... I'm off to try and find something to keep me busy for the rest of the day.....

Until Next Time!

I regret not have guessed, but the opportunity to participate in your game still excites me so much!
your "mini Matryoshka" are delicious ... although, I can say? if I won, I would like a little house for the birds! only you know how to do this with the paint peeling! I love them!
Thanks to have visited my blog, I love your work, for me it's an honor to have you in my house!

I could NEVER have guess correctly. I can't imagine how you can paint these tiny dolls! And your new set of birdhouses is goregous as usual.

Katie, I am really impressed with the nesting dolls. They are so cute! Also, I'm keeping an eye out for that teal house to end up in your shop. The houses are all so beautiful, but I'm a sucker for teal :)
