Here she is! My first Dotee Doll. Isn't she just too cute?! I had a blast making her, trying out the beading and sequins. I wanted her to look like she was wearing a fab beaded hat! I will had a bit of blush to her cheeks before I mail it out. Just to add a bit of color. And her lashes look a bit Tammy Fayeish but still cute for the first time out. So on to the Wonderful World of Dotee Dolls, wondering what a Dotee Doll is? Well here is the creator of this sweet craze...Dot @ Dot's Life and Art! Once you get to Dot's blog, you must read up on how she came about making the Dotee Doll. And how many people it has touched in the process.
I joined a online swap site and found Dot's blog that way. Seeing all her creations really inspired me to step out of my normal crafting realm and try something really different! This wonderful little gem is for a swap called...Valentine Dotee Doll Swap. The doll had to have a least one heart on her. As you can see I have done more than one heart! Hearts Galore is her name.
In each swap you have a partner whom you send out to, then you have one you receive from. Each of those are completely different people. Who you send to is not who you receive from. Tricky I know...but thank goodness the computer does the picking!
The person I received from is a wonderful woman by the name of (her online name) Emerald Touch, Charly (her real name). She made this fab Valentine Dotee Doll for me! Isn't she precious, and because she read my profile she knew I collected Crowns and Tiaras. So, Emerald Touch, Charly, added one accordingly.
With much love,
