Yesterday I framed up these paper dolls that I posted about a bit back. I am really happy with how they turned out. The frame is 11 x 14 and I used blue paper behind the dollys over the white mat board. Sadie and Delia love them (they love the 3 sets I didn't frame even more) and don't seem bummed at all this set is behind glass. I do have a scanned version as back up just in case. The dolls were $4 and the frame, on sale, was $8-not too bad. And the walls are lavender here in the girls room. I just didn't want you to think the color was all screwy.
A few things I need to report:
-I just got word that Christine's (vegasandvenice) Shy Monsters activity book is back in stock over at the fine shop, Mahar Drygoods. I can't tell you how much I love this book! it is so clever, and has stickers, a place to write and keep notes, and the illustrations are so quirky and cool, not to sweet. . .and at $7 each, I think we all should buy 2. There aren't a ton, so act fast. Robert's shop just makes me happy every time I go there.
-I received a great tip regarding the below gummy candy. The williams sonoma gummies are supplied by Gimbals. They also sell their wares at candy direct. It looks like they only have 10lb bags however. . .but maybe there are smaller quantities of Gimbals sour candies somewhere else out there, haven't searched yet.
-Art Star, the fabulous art gallery in Philly is now showing Heidi Kenney's show-and it is amazing from what I have seen online. I am thrilled to have four small framed quilts at the gallery for sale as well, two of which you can see online here (first two images.)
-Send me your apron photos for the January/February Tie One On. I hope to get the photos up on flickr on Friday (or Monday next week, depending.)
