Altered Doll Art

When I start getting the emails of "where have you been", it must be time to come out of hiding.

Actually this week I have been basically laying low, trying to get over another nasty cold with no voice at the don't call me~lol! I don't get sick very often, so I'm not sure why I have had two colds in the last month, sheesh!

Anyway, starting to come around and have been busy packing orders and playing catch~up. Ummm, thanks to the Shabbyfufu customers who have been so patient, much appreciated!

Other than that, I am working on a "special assignment" and then this weekend I HOPE to get into the studio to work on some things the customers have been emailing me about......including some of my Altered Dolls. Specifically I plan on making some of my original "Salt N' Peeps" that I've done for awhile now and usually go pretty quickly. Fun to do, and collect!

Would you like one??? I am having a GIVEAWAY on my blog, if you'd like a chance. They won't be exactly the same as the ones below, as they are always OOAK........but for a chance:

1. Leave a comment
2. Post it on your Blog for TWO chances
3. Follow me for another chance
4. Tweet this for yet ANOTHER chance!

Speaking of following....I had some down time while laptoping in bed the other day to finally try and follow some of the bloggers who are so very kind as to follow my blog. I don't really know what I am doing with following.......SO, if you are following me and I'm not following you.......LET ME KNOW!

Okay, now off to rest up so I bid you adieu for the evening. Winner will be drawn at random....good luck!
xoxo~ Janet

  30. Hello Janet,

    I hope you get to feeling better very soon....there's not much worse than getting a cold, get almost over it and then progress into something worse.

    I think the strange winter we've all had must have something to do with it.

    Anywho....glad you like the post I put up for PiNk Saturday. I've been a part of this weekly event for about 80 week...we are coming close to the two year anniversary of PiNk Saturday. Beverly, the host is a real nice lady and has really nurtured this PiNK blogger event.

    I know you stay busy on Saturday but maybe every once in a while you could pop in and join us for PiNk Saturday. I know everyone would love looking at your offerings.

    There's never any pressure on how many other bloggers you's just about showing a little PiNk and spreading it around...and I you obviously overflow with PiNk!

    If you ever want to put up a post for this event just go to Beverly's blog [her link is in my PS post] and email her before Friday of the week you want to join.

    I hope you have a wonderful first day of Spring...and do get well!!

    Stephanie ♥
