Rebecka Valentine

Hello!!! It's been a bit quite here these last few weeks but I can assure you that this will not be the case in weeks to come. I have been working away on some new designs, some I started well before Xmas. I've really been enjoying getting back into painting and learning some new techniques with Suzi Blu's classes...I've enrolled in a couple more!! I'm working on some multi-media dolls and having a play with mohair!!

a sneaky peek!!
Lets see what else have I been doing???? oh I've been studying the history of dolls and teddy bears!
Found some great books at the library.



One very cool book had lots of vintage knitting patterns for dolls clothes!! Just got to get a hold of some teeny tiny needles my 2.00 are not tiny enough for some of the knitting.
Oh and of course there will be a couple of Valentine themed critters like Miss Rebecka here, that can be viewed in my ETSY SHOP!!
You may have noticed that I had a few critters on eBay? Well I sold two, not really for the price I was hoping to get but they went to a lady in the states that is a mad doll collector, so I was pleased about that. Have to get myself more acquainted with eBay as there seems to be lots of tricky bits to work out and use properly.
Oh just one more thing, fingers and toes crossed I may have another shop to sell my critters in!!

I wont spill the beans about it just yet, but I'll be mighty excited about having my work there.
That's it for today.....maybe......oh but I have to cook dinner....it will be a zucchini feast! They seem to have exploded in numbers in the garden!!

Love the bunny, honey!! A touch of red always brightens my day.
Good to see you working creatively and playing with mohair...watch it or you'll get sucked in just like the rest of us!! It's beautiful to work with.
Warmest hugs,
