Mermaid Fever








Recently, I have been blessed with work. It is always an honor when others love your creations. This little mermaid has kept me quite busy lately! She has been painted three times in the past month and I've been very bad about taking pictures of her. Before another delivery tomorrow, I plan to take a picture of that little mermaid as well.
Her hair is customized according to the little girl's hair that will be wearing her. I've added ribbon and buttons. One thing I have discovered in sewing ribbons and buttons is that I CAN'T sew. Wow, am I bad, good thing it is just basic things like a button and some ribbon.
I try never to make the same mermaid for each girl by switching out the type of ribbon and buttons. This way she is unique each time she is worn by a different owner. T.V. is calling me and I haven't just sat and watched TV in a LONG time as well as page 151 of Wuthering Heights... so I think I am going to wait to list her in my shop.
