I'm having a sale in my shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheFairiesNest because for some unknown reason the fairies have not been good at helping out with repairs and unexpected expenses this summer...imagine that! So until September 30th everything is 25% off, just use the coupon code FANTASTICFALL when you check out. I had a cool ad that I made that I was going to insert here but I can't figure out how....so just imagine it. >< It's been a crazy year...sigh...I'm more than ready for uninteresting times.

I just realized that it's been over a year since I posted a journal here...ack. I promise I really have been here; looking at your wonderful artwork, reading your delicious poetry, and leaving comments too! Here's a taste of what I've been loving at DA lately.... :thumb177482923: :thumb177783418: :thumb174761485: :thumb61548936: :thumb178124414: :thumb173531815: Life's been kind of interesting lately. I'm making some dolls for a movie...I'll be in those tiny credits at the end that fly by too fast to read ;) and I've been working away steadily at my dolls...just having the usual fun. Ready for summer to quit and looking forward to Fall!

One for sadness, two for mirth; Three for marriage, four for birth; Five for laughing, six for crying: Seven for sickness, eight for dying; Nine for silver, ten for gold Eleven a secret that will never be told. :thumb62018072::thumb109418341::thumb113391674::thumb113414541::thumb102748647: :thumb95709364::thumb21475597::thumb31763568::thumb109820764::thumb63602409::thumb132359388: and a few by my all time favorite DA poet, the marvelous ~maenad77 (https://www.deviantart.com/maenad77) :thumb75804691::thumb74251585::thumb65996298:

Hugs for the fav for poor, dear Lucy!  rhissanna.deviantart.com/art/Sleeping-Lucy-408796376
Ohh! Cynthia! Thank you for the fav for my Alices! rhissanna.deviantart.com/art/D…
You are very welcome, they're delightful!
Thanks for the fav! [link] She's almost finished!
I know that you have done tutorials before, do you think that you could do one on how you do the doll's hair? Your dolls are absolutely amazing!!!! I am so inspired by what you do and the doll i made based on yours my little sister loves!
Thank you! I could do that. I'm in the middle of house upheaval at the moment but maybe when the move is over. It's really super easy just two bunches of yarn... 1)one front to back with a seam right above the "bangs" and 2)one side to side with a middle seam for the part. Then glue down 1 and then 2 over it. I then use a felting needle to make it well attached. Easy Peasy!
Thank you solo much!!!
