Happy New Year's Eve......

I thought I better end the year with a final post for 2012.

Well we made it through Christmas without much hassel. The cats were very good this year with our tree. There were are few "incidents" but they soon didn't pay any attention to the tree at all:)

Santa was very nice and brought my favourites....

I also have to show you a Monthly Make as well. They had a challenge at Cloth Doll Artistry that I  participated in. We were given a pattern with no instructions and we were to make a doll.

As usual I left it to the last moment. It was due December 20th and I some how managed to put something together the night before.  To be honest I wasn't in love with the pattern so it was hard to get motivated:(  We were to use ribbon on the doll as well and I had a ribbon flower I made a while back. So I took it apart and used the petals for her dress....

In the end I made a little shelf sitter. I gave her little boots because she looked odd with the way the foot was. I also thought the arms where out of proportion so I wangled it a bit.

......other news........well the world didn't end this month as predicted........and I got a year older.

I also had a Blogoversary......December 28, 2010 was my first post on here.  Funny that I would choose that time of year to start blogging......nothing on TV probably.

I never make any New Years resolutions because I know I will never stick to them so why bother. I like to go with the flow and see where it brings me. I always look forward to a new year...a fresh page to write adventures:) 

Having said that I want to wish you all a Happy New Years from me and mine to you and yours....


I will raise a glass of good cheer to you all and I'll talk to you next year:)

Take care.


  1. Happy New Year, Mary Ann! and happy Blogoversary, too. I started mine on February 29th this year - yes Leap Year. I'm sure there is some hidden meaning in that somehow. Love your dolly's belly button! She's so cute! But you'd better keep her close to the fire in that outfit!! Looking forward to following along with you on your adventures this coming year.

  2. Another cutie executed to perfection. Wishing you a very Happy, Healthy and Crafty New Year. Hugs Mrs A.

  3. Happy New Year to you, your cats and the very stunning doll you made.

  4. Wishing you all the best for 2013!
    xo Catherine

  5. Happy New Year Mary Ann..

    your little shelf sitter turned out pretty the little belly button....

  6. Happy New Year! Oh, Maynards, that takes me back. Liqurice Allsorts are lovely. They also make 'Dolly Mixtures', which are the same kind of sweets but much smaller and no liquorice. No dolls' tea party is complete without them.

    You made a lovely doll from that patters, I'd have wiggled with it, too, as the body looks like a stump doll, and then there's those long, long legs. She's very sweet. Like a Dolly Mixture!


If you leave a comment and I don't respond it's because I didn't get an email notice. I don't know why this happens and I apologize in advance as I love to hear from you:)
