2 Weeks to go!

With just 2 weeks to my first craft fair, I really do need to get a move on and get some more things made.  I am really struggling for time at the moment, as I work part time as a self employed childminder during the day, so my mornings are taken up with looking after three toddlers and my afternoons and evenings are taken up with taking care of my two year old daughter and my 12 year old son when he comes home from school, as well as cutting out and sewing up dollies, dolly clothes, bags and, accessories and hair clip holders!  I also have 10 custom orders to do before Christmas so I really am feeling the pressure at the moment!

I thought I would share a few dolls that I have for the craft fair so far...

This is Rory.  He is a blue-eyed Sugar Plum boy dress-up doll and wears designer Riley Blake dungarees.  Aren't his freckles cute?  I gave him sticky-up hair just like my own son.  He has a double crown and i've always found it a nightmare to get it to lay flat!

This is Holly and Ivy.  They are limited edition Christmas dress-up dolls.  I love the way that despite being sisters, they look completely different, just like my own sister and I!
And here is a cute little outfit I made for my Daughter's Little Sugar Plum doll especially for Halloween!  How cute is her matching trick or treat tote bag?  More about her here.
I have spent this afternoon cutting out dolls and outfits ready to sew up this evening and over the weekend.  I wil post more photos when I have them.  In the mean time, please like my page over at I am up to 775 likes and I hope to get 800 by the end of next week. :)
