Thanksgiving and thank goodness for links

Here's a very pretty collection of leaves my daugther and I picked on one of our walks, hope you like them. I love the fall colors. So deep and dramatic!

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! We had a great time, and got to thank twice, since we went to visit family on Saturday and did almost the whole thing all over again. Except I did not over ate. That's just once a year and I was still paying for it lol :oP

Now, I am one that always keeps an eye on artsy and craftsy sites, and I found some very interesting things... Here are the links and please let me know what you think!

1- This is not new, but it's worth mentioning it. It's ALL ACEOs

2- Neat little place Doll Pile (growing fast!) for DOLLS

3-One site that allows you to use/link your etsy store ART FIRE you can list and buy ACEOs, sculpts, etc...more than art.

4- And..... one cool eye TUTORIAL by Rivkah Mizrahi.
I just love her dolls!

Update: To see this moonie tutorial, please click HERE to for a large image in my doll blog

For the hair tutorial, the doll is cloth, but it is same steps for polymer. I like that tacky glue, but also have used many other glues like Gorilla grip, MendAll... you name it! Click HERE to see a larger image in my doll blog.

I'd love to hear your comments or questions as well! :o)

She finally has hair!

Took me forever, but my fairy finally has hair (a beautiful turquoise mohair) AND I finally took a picture. LOL I am very happy with this fairy! She still has her mischivous little face and her wings are so cute! She has a strong wire armature and movable arms & legs, so it is a lot of fun to sit her in a pose. I am still working on a "rock" for her to sit. So far she's been in a regular chair, but she needs something more.... natural forestie-fairie looking place to sit.
