The Spire Market

It's been a while between posts again and let me tell you why.....

My friend Bec and I are going to be running a Market at our church on the 7th December... and I've been busy working things out for that.... and creating more Stuffed dolls to sell there... I'm having a lot of fun creating lots of little characters in sockrag doll form :)

If you are around the Sydney area make sure you come along to the market.. it's going to be AWESOME!!!

Some more fun news coming soon too!!

Stuffed by Sammi :: Raggy doll Jilly

Good afternoon, I've been having a little play these last couple of days ... We had a lot of left over polyfill from when we restuffed Guy's old teddy Bogey :) So I've been wanting to try making some softies... anyway being a very girly girl (yes STILL) I  thought I'd attempt making some raggy dolls... take #1 was not so brilliant... but the next two attempts are much better.. and even worthy of a picture or two.... The other thing I should mention is that I  do not have any "proper" supplies... I am just using OLD rags... well they are old clothes of mine really :)

..... This one I am surprisingly quite proud of.... This is Jilly (MIL - Pam helped me to name her :)

More on the making....
Jilly is made from... a sock, and a jumper and and offcuts of a tshirt and a skirt.. as well as buttons and wool and lots of sewing (still lots of room for improvement on this front)

Here she is with some extra lace and sitting on the chair next to Pam...

Seems like (in the right mood) dolls can be good therapy ... provided us both with some laughter, that's for sure :) Pam had a good chat to Jilly and then posed her for a picture.. telling her to be good and smile for Mummy to take a photo :)

Might be a few more stuffed toys showing up soon!

Monday Meditations :: Proverbs 19:21

mmm... it was about 2 months ago that I decided to do Monday Meditations on my blog... and well I didn't follow through.. but I do still want to do it ... and here goes my 2nd attempt :) You can read the 1st one here :)

A verse that I commonly meditate on is ...

Proverbs 19:21 - Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand. (ESV)

I've found this to be true in my life ... Many plans I had for what I would do/ where I would be in life have not turned out the way I planned ...  This is also something that I still struggle with... when things don't go the way I hope... I get upset. But I know that God's plans are bigger and better than I can imagine. In Growth Group and church we've been reading Ephesian - and I'm reminded about God's BIG plan revealed in Jesus to bring all things under him. How Awesome ... and well I guess it brings my plans into a new perspective. So I guess this verse is a challenge and an encouragement in one. :D

 I decided to do a Smashbook page on this verse and so I'm (funnily enough) just in the planning stages of it....

I did decide to sketch up a quick little image to go on the page... I have her in a new section on the website - images "inspired by Scripture" as I would like to do more of these types of pics. She is currently a FREEDIGI so if you would like to use her just go through the checkout process and you will receive the download link at the end :D


Thanks for stopping by!


a new video - Bodyswapping with TGF

Good morning,

I am hoping to get a few more videos on here... and make my youtube channel a bit more active :) So this is a start... a couple of people asked how I combined 5 TGF images... and so I thought I'd make a video :D  Hope you like it!!

As you can see at the end I have a few TGF mixmatched images to colour now!! tee hee :)
