MONDAY PHOTO OF THE WEEK

Hi everybody!

I started working on a doll yesterday for one of my girlfriends who is heavily pregnant at the moment with a baby girl. I am so excited for her and I will be attending her baby shower in a couple of weekends time, so I thought I should make a start on her gift. She has never seen my dolls before so I hope she likes them. I am also thinking of painting her a mixed media canvas painting that is of coures baby related. I was thinking of putting some affirmation words or something like that on it. She has told me that bubby's room is white and pink so I will be going with this colour scheme.

I am so clucky at the moment with all this baby talk. I can't wait to start a family of my own, but unfortunately it just isn't the write time financially or physically with my back injury. Fate has other ideas so I am just going with the flow, or at least trying to.

Here are some pics of the doll I am working on. She is still a fair way off being finished and I think I might make a few changes still. I will post another pic when she is all finished.

Thanks for taking a peek!
