Swap Goodies and some makeovers

Wow, cant believe its been over a week since I last posted!

Ive been busy sewing every so often, I got so burnt out back in May that I just have no drive to make anything. I do have a bunch of dolls and ornies cut out waiting on me and I finished up 2 fallish dolls today.

First let me show ya what Beth sent me! What a SWEETIE she is......
Her and I had a swap and this is what she sent! I just LOVE her room sprays, the scent actually lasts a long time and when I spray on my couch and throws you can smell the wonderful goodness for days! Kindle grabbed the bottle of monkey farts from me right quick but what an awesome scent!



Thanks so much Beth, I love all of my goodies, we are SO doing this again:)

Ive also been trying to complete a million painting re-dos. You would not believe the amount of wooden things I have piled up in the garage, some half painted, some painted waiting on briwax and some just waiting for something.....

Remember this shelf and little pipe box thingy (sorry, not sure of the name)



Here are the afters...




Remember this tool carrier?



Here is the after...




And a few dolls Ive finished up....

My very first round head doll, took me a few times to get it right:)





I hope everyone is enjoying their summer? I SO can NOT wait for fall, although our weather is VERY fall like with temps not reaching much higher than 75 on a daily basis, no complaints here really unless its too chilly to go outside, then Ima complain'n!!

Jenn, what fun swap goodies! I cannot even imagine what monkey f**** smells like! Steve would freak to just read that label! :D
We don't use that word. LOL!

And your dolls are awesome! You do such a great job on everything you make! I'm sure they will be snatched right up!

And wow! I love the re-dos too! Isn't if fun to find something unwantd and turn it into something great? You rock!

I hope you are enjoying your great weather! When you get tired of the cool, send it down to me!
