Searching for Cupcakes...

Don't you just love A Muse images? They are some of the cutest little stamps out there! And there sentiments...don't get me started!!!

I have had this idea floating around in my head for some time and I finally got around to giving life. Don't you love it when what you're creating turns out how you've pictured it in your head? That's how this was! I wanted to have the little dog sniffing for the cupcakes...like he was on the trail of them. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

On another note, I'm seriously thinking of starting a webstore to sell some of my creations and crafts. I'd have a lot of the same things available as I do at my craft shows. What I'm thinking is that I would add the store in with my blog. I'm still mulling over all the details right now. I'd love the hear some great ideas for a store name. I have some I'm thinking about right now, but more heads are better than one! If I pick a name you suggest I'll send a little goodie package your way!

I'm also thinking about having a store to sell the doll clothes that my mother and I make. We have a variety of dolls that we sew for. We make doll clothes for American Girl dolls as well as selling shoes for them. In addition to the American Girl we also sew for a cute little doll named Riley Kish, you can see her here, and then we've also been recently sewing for Ball Jointed Dolls. These are a fairly new doll to the whole doll scene. These new style Ball Jointed Dolls originated from Asia and have become the latest craze in the doll world. Here is a sampling of some BJD's.

A couple more random thoughts...has anyone else noticed that some of the posting options have disappeared,or is it just me? I don't see the option to change the color of text or to change the size. I know that some of the other toolbar options seem to be missing. Hope you're having a spectacular week!

Stamps-Sniffer, Cupcake, Leafy Tree, Grass, Hey Cupcake sentiment

OMG! That is so CUTE!!! BTW, I think you could try opening your store right on your blog, if you can, and see how it goes? Does blogger have a PayPal store widget? I haven't tried it, but, Typepad does . . . I don't have any dolls, but, just hearing about the dresses you and your mom make made me sigh all happy-like . . . I must be an antique little girl . . . LOL!
