Petticoats & Parasols I'm Ready

Well, as ready as I'll ever be!!!! WOW! I can't believe it's finally here. I have been waiting so long. I am really excited & tomorrow I'm leaving on a jet plane for Savannah, GA. "Hubby" will keep the home fires burning & I am off to play. I am super excited about getting to meet so many folks. Lisa & Sandy have told me sooooooooooooooo much about Jodie I feel like I already know her. And then I am excited about meeting my roommate Heidi for the first time. If you don't know about this event click on the button on my sidebar.
As you know we had the swap that I "stewed" over for the 24 gifts(already shipped a few weeks ago) that I did the post HERE. But, there was a Southern Belle Paper Doll Swap & I had to make 6. Thanks to sweet NAN all the way in Alaska (if you haven't seen her site the photos she takes are amazing) for sending me the image for my doll. The photos above are of the finished product. I added lace that looks like a petticoat & flowers. And I about "had kittens" over packaging her but, with the help of my friend's Susan & Lisa & with a lot of talking it through, this folder with the background of the Southern Mansion is how she is finished up. What do ya think girls? THANKS to all who had input. I'll be back Sunday night with lots of pictures & stories to share. Have a wonderful weekend. HUGS!

Your doll turned out so cute! See all your fretting was for naught. ;o) The packaging is really cute too. That's always the hardest part of the project for me cause I'm not as talented in thinking outside the box. Have fun in Savannah!

hey, charlene, i am supposed to be doing a chore but stopped after working on it all day to check my email for any foreclosure notices or "you no longer have health care, sicko", and saw that you had written so i ignored those icky emails to hop over and see what you've been up to.
i haven't read your email yet but, not wanting to go back to work i decided to visit JUST you. (I'm serious)

Now, before i forget - i am DYING over that precious southern belle you made for your swap. Oh, my gosh, I LOVE her. If you sell any of her in your etsy shop, let me know so I can get one:)

okay, back to work.
i can't put it off any longer though I did give some thought to rambling while i'm here.

i'll check in with ya tomorrow after i read your email, xxoo, jan
