At Last.............




After months and months, and probably over a year.......well, have you heard of the saying S%^#! or get off the pot......well, today I got off the pot!!!!! I have been threatening to make a doll again for so long that Im sure I sounded like a broken record....but seriously, I havent made a doll in at least 4 years, since I gave up being Allthingsraggedy.....well, today I decided to just do it.....and I did!!!!! I had some yummy Valentine fabric that Glenni gave me last year when I was visiting her....because shes been listening to me threaten to make a doll for so long, so I used it to make this Annie...thanks Glenni! Anyways, I have to tell you I was a bit nervous to see how she would turn out.....but shes pretty dang cute! Maybe I will even make another one, who knows.....
OK, speaking of Glenni, she and I went to this cool scrappy store in LA last year when she was visiting....I loved it, but its a long drive to Sweetpeas and Snapdragons....BUT when the hubby asked me if I wanted to go to LA with him, and he would take me to a great steak place if I went, I said, cool, but will we be anywhere near Pico street????????? OMG, so he took me there and I got my Valentines fix, and some motivation to make Valentine Annie...anyways, would have been more fun with her with me, but I did love it! This is the scrappy store where Brittany Spears go, we just missed her last year.....
OK, Im off to hug my Annie, she was a long time coming.......

OMG is she ever adorable!!!! You are soooo talented. I'm telling you Deb she is soooooooo ddang cute. I'm so glad you finally decided to make one. Hey Ineed some of those button flowers you got back there. Did you make those???
Im with Carol, I'm guessing Brittany isn't even near that shop these days. But then you never know with her.

Yay Deb...I am so glad you're back to making Annie's!!! I actually just got a pattern for one and may try my hand at it--I've only made a button doll so we'll see :) I love your new header--very cute.

Very cute Annie you made there! I bought a kit while at the Country Loft to make two Annies. I may need your guidance when I get around to making them. Maybe I'll get them out tonight. I'm guessing Brittany doesn't get out to that shop much anymore either.
