Olivia, redone

Mei Ling Effner with Bear
Olivia had a face repaint.  Here is a link to a photo from before.  I didn't like something about her eyes and her cheeks seemed too dull, so I enhanced the face paint by repainting the eyes and eyelashes.  I reblushed her cheeks and chin, too, and now I like her better.  I made her a dress with an Ionker A-line pattern, which I lengthened.  I decided it needed embroidery and a hat to make it complete.

Here is a closeup of her face painting.  I also re-wigged her, as her original wig was not of good quality.  I used a mohair Heidi wig and overall, I think she's much cuter.

I made some new overalls for my little Customhouse Ange Ai Uri today. I love this photo. The lighting came out just perfect. I also photographed him reading a book (below). There are a few more photos on my flickr account.

Cuteness Just for Cuteness' Sake

Alice Cherry Blossom is just too cute. It's cold and dreary here this afternoon. What better to perk the day up than a scrumptious cupcake offered by an adorable piglet?

This little wormy is from the Wee Wonderfuls pattern for Evelyn Inchworm. Once I got her finished, I thought she would be a great gift for my favorite librarian, so into the mail she went, to my sister!
