Here is Babette, an 19 inch custom doll that is going to live in Australia with a very lovely lady. I loved making her, purple is one of my favourite colors. Now I'm all finished with custom dolls for this year. The only things left are two dolls for my sons teachers and off course christmas gifts for my family and friends. Many plans but not sure how many will be finished on time.

Vera Liefje

Let me introduce you to Vera Liefje. She is just as her name predicts, as sweet as a cupcake. She loves to read, to play and to snuggle. She is flying off to the states this week. I'm gonna miss her so much.

Princess Renette and mister Frog

Ready for some big and small adventures.
Princess Renette and her mister Frog

Once upon a time there was a little Princess named Renette. She lived with her parents and her sister Babette in a beautiful palace. Surrounding the palace were the most beautiful wild gardens and because Renette was a princess that loved being outdoors, those gardens were the place where she spent most her time. 

You might wonder what a pretty princess like Renette did all day in those wild gardens? Well, her parents might like to think of Renette as a pretty well behaved sweet little girl but Renette didn’t agree all the time. When she was indoors she was willing to be that kind of girl, but when she was in her garden (she liked to think of the gardens as her property), boy oh boy, that well behaved girl was no where to be seen. The first thing she would do when she went into her garden was to climb into her treehouse. Inside her treehouse was a trunk with her “other” clothes. She would hang her pretty playdress that her mother loved so much on a chair, put on her warm brown pair of short overalls, her cupcake t-shirt, a scarf, a hat and of course her sister's (she never wore them, according to Babette the garden was a filthy place) pink cupcake wellies. They were a little too big, but that made it possible to wiggle her toes, something Renette liked very much. 
She would then climb down and run towards the pond at the eastside of the garden, right under the big chestnut tree with the swing. Long ago (actually last spring but for Renette it felt as long ago) she lost her golden ball there and met the loud but friendly mister Frog. He helped her get her ball back and they became instant friends, best friends, as close as a frog and a princess can be.
Together they went on many adventures in her gardens, she saved him from the big grey heron ( she threw her golden ball right at his beak) and he would stand guard when she was stealing raspberries and strawberries in the vegetable garden. And when miss Cook caught Renette stealing cookies from the kitchen, mister Frog jumped in her face and sent miss Cook in a hysteric panic attack as the poor woman was scared to death of frogs.
Together they have decided to never grow up! Perhaps they won’t, perhaps they will. Perhaps Renette will kiss him someday and something magical is gonna happen, who knows. For now they are looking for a new garden to have many more adventures.
NO mister Frog, that camara isnt meant for you.

Watching at the clouds!

Mister Frog! Now help me find my other shoe!

Mister Frog, a very special frog.

Sharing some adventurous stories.
This set will be available on the next Dollectable upload on September 7th, 7 pm EST.

Mama roept: Rozemarije, wakker worden! Nee mama, ik wil niet, ik wil nog slapen. Mama roept, opschieten we moeten naar balletles!

Mama calls: Rozemarije, wake up! No mommy, I dont want to, I want to sleep. Mama calls: hurry up, we have to go to ballet class!
Rozemarije springt uit bed, wast haar gezicht, kamt haar haren, maakt twee vlechten, kleren aan, cape om, tas en boterham pakken en klaar!

Rozemarije jumps out of bed, washes her face, combs her hair, makes two braids, puts on her clothes and her cape, grabs her bag and a sandwich and she is ready to go!
Rozemarije is dol op ballet! Met een strik in haar haar, haar balletpakje en haar roze tutu voelt ze zich net een echte ballerina.

Rozemarije loves ballet! With a bow in her hair, her leotard and her pink tutu, she feels just like a real ballerina.

Rozemarije is vanavond te koop via de eerste upload van Dollectable, een samenwerkingsverband tussen verschillende poppenmakers over de hele wereld.

Rozemarije is for sale tonight through the first upload of Dollectable, a cooperation between different dollmakers over the whole world.

Spin spin spinner de spin

Shunklies roving

Het is niet voor niks dat een kat spint als ze het naar haar zin heeft. Spinnen is gewoon heel relaxing om te doen. Ik heb het dan over het spinnen op een spinnewiel. Zo heerlijk om met mooie gekleurde zachte wol bezig te zijn en dan een streng prachtig poppenhaar te hebben.

Mitzi doll Rosa

On valentinesday I participated in a giveaway by Maria of Mariengold. To my big surprise I won the main prize: the mitzi e-book and a materialpackage with everything I would need to make my own Mitzi doll. I choose for the darkbrown Laib Yala skinfabric and the darkbrown mohair yarn.

I started working on him immediatly. It would be a him because my son requested a dark boy. It was such fun to work with a new pattern that is so different from my own pattern. I loved every stitch.

It started with the head that was shaped in a different way then my own but also had a very nice result.

Then the doll was finished and wearing some borrowed knitted items. But by now my daughter took a serious interest and my son lost interest. 
 So should it be a girl 
or a boy?

Amelie decided its a girl and her name is Rosa. She loves her to bits and is constantly changing her clothes and putting her to bed. 

Thank you so much Maria, for this opportunity. I recommend this ebook to everyone who asks me where to start when they want to make their own doll. Its brilliant for beginners but also for advanced dollmakers. 

Have a nice day! Wendy

3 friendly dollmakers

Lana of Emily Moon dolls and Monika of VergissmeinnichtKuss dolls are two dollmakers that I admire mostly and that I consider very good friends. Lana lives in the USA and Monika live in Switzerland, how did we all meet? Through Facebook :-) Such a wonderfull way to meet other dollmakers and talk about and share techniques for making dolls. Lana and Monika already did a swap and recently I en Monika did a swap. I received a gorgeous Pippi and Monika received pretty Little Red.

I'm so happy to have such nice colleagues and friends, even though we never met in real life, perhaps some day.
