My online doll group, Doll Street Dreamers is having a Mermaid Challenge. We all LOVE Mermaids, and I have designed a few in my day. One is a small neck bag which holds my eyeglasses, and has a small pocket for cash. I also made a very cute (she said with modesty) little 6" Mermaid which is a bit different. So dug her out of my files and wrote up into a pattern & now have her posted for sale on my DollmakerLaura Blogspot. Of course there's also the Steampunk Mermaid too.

Cranes & Crows wanted to carry some of my cats in her shop. She asked if the small ones could be pins...hmmmmm. Good idea. Since I needed a name tag for the art show with my group at the Museum, I decided to make a cat head with little paws holding my name. He of course has a mouse sitting on his head. I like! So am making more to sell, and when time allows will also put up tips on my other Word Press Blog for those who have bought "Poking Fun" to make too. Meanwhile Doll Street is having a Mermaid challenge so am updating some of my Mermaid patterns.
