I've been asked to make bendy dolls with faces a few times recently. I've made them without faces for so long for the whole Waldorfy reason of leaving them open to the child's imagination. I really like that idea-that the child can imagine any sort of expression they'd like for the doll rather than the constant frozen smile.
But, the faces are growing on me. So much so that I'm thinking about offering dolls with faces in my shop along with their faceless counterparts. But I'm hesitant because I've only offered one option for so long. Maybe there isn't any interest in dolls with faces.
A poll seems like the way to go here. :) Thanks for your input!

I've been working, working, working! And the end result: bendy dolls galore.
I listed them late this morning and already about half have flown the coop. If you'd like to take a peek at what's left, click here. Surprisingly, some of my favorites remain.

It looks like I'm officially back to work. I'm thrilled to be back in full crafty mode. If you want to see what I've been up to the past week and a half just click here (it's too much to add to a single blog post!).
And for those who aren't interested in clicking links to look at pictures...you get a picture of my cutie dog taking full advantage of the softness of a basket of Annies.

Yes, ME! I'm on a roll. Can you believe it?! It's been a long time coming but I'm fully back to crafting! Good thing because it's totally time to begin stocking for the holidays!
I've just added some new bendy dolls to my shop and, chances are, there will be even more trickling in over the next few days!
And, not to be a total downer, but there will be a small price increase on bendy dolls beginning Oct. 1st. I've been making them for oh...seven years now. They've evolved greatly in that time. They were originally very simple. But I get into details. And over seven years they've become MUCH more detailed. Which is fine, I love the details. But they do take much more time to make than they did back in the beginning.
It won't be a huge increase though. They'll definitely be worth it. ;-) But I did want to give fair warning and all.
