A group for doll makers to hone their skills. Dolls are so fun to create and your imagination will have no boundries! I promise fun, creative and challenging contests and hope to expand the doll making community we all love being a part of!
Congrats to all the winners! Thank you for my win! A Mrs. Claus Diva would be divine or a Christmas home decor diva (I love decorating my house for the Christmas holidays and I have most of my decorating already done, just need to finish my tree)!
@girlyideas & @Joeanne I really do not like sweet potatoes at all and I love potatoes of any kind normally but I just can't eat them. I think it is the consistency, too mushy or something! Sounds like you had a good crowd this year, although smaller, I am sure you had a wonderful time! I agree with you both, it would be so wonderful to be close enough to spend real time together! Talking and lots of laughter I have no doubt. Enjoy the rest of your weekend my dears. I am going to attempt to create something today. My doll mojo has been on the fritz of late so not sure what will be the end result! Love to you both!! xoxo
@girlyideas YAY!! I hope you all enjoy this fun contest!! Tracy @Girlyideas is a lifesaver and spoiling me by taking over the Divas for a little while! I added a couple of my past Pilgrim dolls to start things off! I also hope you all enjoy not having to put together a doll with different parts and can just create one already assembled!! Biggest challenge for me was/is putting together a background, so I can't wait to see your creations!! Enjoy darlings!! 🥧
@funkyjunkygypsy Thank you so much sweetheart for your wonderful message and sweet compliment!! Tracy @Girlyideas is a gift from above and she has given me a nice break to catch up at work and decompress!!!
Hope you are well and know you are very missed!!!
I love this contest idea Tracy sweetie!! So many things to be thankful for and a perfect time of year to express those thoughts to everyone!! I am so thankful for all our wonderful Divas and all the support you have shown us this past year! You are all such kind and generous ladies and I am so very grateful to know each of you!!
@Lilac You are in my prayers sweetheart. I know the pain of losing a Father too soon and my heart breaks for your loss. Let your memories carry you through the days ahead and bring you comfort when nothing else can. Sending you love, light, and strength my dear we will all be here for you when the time comes...
@ellen-hilart16 You are very welcome Ellen sweetie and I loved your doll!! I am a big fan of anything vintage so she really caught my eye! I know what you mean about being the only winner showing but was my darn fault for not changing it, especially when I am normally so careful to double check, but this one just slipped by! Hope you are doing well!
Due to the Holiday and I know everyone is enjoying their time with Family and Friends, I am going to just delete this contest and will try it again with a future one. I'll just go ahead and judge the original contest since the ones entered here are also in that one, so no one will be excluded. Hope you all have a great weekend!!
Hi Ladies...when I created this contest I neglected to change the number of winners from 1 to 15 so this contest only allows me 1 winner.
If no one has any objections, I'll choose the first place winner and list the other places in a post here. I'll wait a little while before I conclude the contest if anyone has any other suggestions, otherwise, I'll just do what I mention above...so sorry for the mistake...
@bev That is too funny!! I just turned on A Capital Fourth and just getting ready to log of for the day! I watch this special every year and never miss it! Remodeling is a huge chore, so good luck getting that wrapped up! Bet it will look amazing once you are done! Light is always better! Going to relax, have some ice cream and watch the special! Happy 4th again!!
@ultracake You are very welcome Wanda my dear! To this day anytime I see an AIW doll or art set, I think of you!! So very happy everyone found it fun and challenging even though, as you mention, the judging was close to impossible to choose just 15 but I am so happy that everyone was up to the challenge!! Thank you for supporting my group sweetie, means a lot to me!!
@girlyideas You are so welcome Tracy dear!! You and Korinne @Laughingdog had amazing entries and made judging fun but so hard!! haha! Thank you so much dear for the Pinterest plug! I have always pinned and created boards since I joined PV, so I have a lot of collections of dolls and art sets for a lot of different people. I really love keeping the memories!! I am so glad you found some old sets for yourself! I really enjoyed looking at them all again! Nice memories!!
@girlyideas Great post Tracy sweetheart and brilliant idea to include @Lilac !! She is truly a master at this type of background and really a much better example of this technique!!
I love your method of creating this style. The main thing I want everyone to know is these are just guidelines. I want you all to create your own style using the examples given and although some still need to be tweaked, the latest entries from you Tracy sweetie and Korinne @Laughingdog are amazing!! Well done ladies! 🥰
@ellen-hilart16 You are very welcome Ellen dearest. Don't give a second thought, but it is nice to see you here. Thinking of you and hoping you are getting through each day. Sending you love and light dear friend...
