Mad as a Hatter . . .

It has taken me awhile to get on here and share the zombie doll that I sent to Trish.  
One of the "missing zombie doll" requests she listed was a Mad Hatter doll.
. . . so meet Hatter.  I really had fun making him!

As far as zombies go, Hatter is very friendly . . .
but more than a little bonkers!
He loves tea, and never goes anywhere without his hat.
Hatter has been known to be very charming . . . especially with people he knows and
when attending tea parties.  Although, his obsession with tea and tea parties
may also set him off.  Then you may see is “mad”, crazy, eccentric side.
Yep . . . completely off his rocker. 
Enjoy this little zombie doll.  He may be entirely bonkers,
but I’ll tell you a secret . . . All the best people are.

We're not in Kansas anymore...

  Now that my partner has received her package I can show what I made. Mandy was wanting a Zombie Wizard of Oz doll and I just happened to have a 1976 Bucilla Tin Man craft kit, and no memory of why I bought it in the first place, it was Karma.

Photo 1 is what it was suppose to look like and Photo 2 is what I did to it.

A couple of the tuck-in's I made (big cat not included).
  The Wizard of Oz image I found on line and added it to a frame I painted. The doll head is a "non-traditional" flower pot.

I look forward to doing this swap every year.

Follow The Yellow Brick Road .......

Poor ....Poor Dorothy .......
She followed the Yellow Brick Road all the way to Ilinois ......It was a perilous journey, that left her a little (LOT) worse for wear !!!!

Thanks Val for another awesome swap ...... my little zombie family is expanding !!!!

Iara out did herself.  I mean seriously.   The doll she made me is AMAZING!
I named her Anastasia.
She has gorgeous hair and a crown and a scepter and and and....well you get the picture.

I can go on and on but I'll just show you.

See?  She even has FLIES in her hair!!!!

And she didn't stop there...she included all sorts of goodies including some "wool?" roving from her OWN bunnies!

I guess everyone knows I like to add poems and/or  back ground stories to my dolls.   She started a poem and it made me laugh out loud so I had to include it with the photo...TOO funny!

Thank you Iara!!!

Total Cuteness!

Lest you think poorly of our wonderful hostess, I did receive my zombie from Val BEFORE the shipping deadline, but have been so busy trying to catch up on the one I was making for her that I had not had a chance to take pictures or post.  Having recently moved to the Gulf Coast, I finally feel like some beach-themed decor is appropriate, so one of my suggestions was a doll to incorporate.  I present to you, my little surfer girl:

 I absolutely adore the tiny touches like her belly button piercing and her anklet:
 She came with some goodies that I refused to touch until after I had sent out the doll I made for Val.  Last night I celebrated by opening up that bag of Chex Mix and promptly attracted the attention of my own local zombies (13 yr-old up past bedtime).
 Also included was this darling felted owl.  I have to fight my daughters off for possession of this too.  Nina loves owls, and Nora loves needle felting. Mine! Back off I say!

Thank you Val -- both for my box o' fun, and hosting these swaps.  I enjoy the opportunity to share my love of things handmade.

Happy Haunting Y'all.

Zombie swap package

Thank You Mandy for my Day of the Dead girl, she will fit right in with my DoD display.  I like the anatomy pieces on the charm bracelet and I have a few ideas for the stickers.

It was fun!
