Unbelievable talent!!

So I was visiting Shari's website Plays with Paper (don't you just love that name?) and she had just introduced these darling little doll necklaces. 

I saw them and wanted one...I mean REALLY had to have one, you know?
Someone else left a comment on her blog that SHE wanted the doll...rats!
This is her back, finished in every detail, just stunningly cute!
So I did what any rabid fan would do, I emailed Shari and she said that she would be happy to make me a custom doll. My heart was happy.
I adore everything about this doll...(did you notice her "key" arms? And her little red maryjane shoes? And her sweet little hat? And all her ruffles?
Now I'll be the first to admit that sometimes I see an item and know that I can make something similiar, you know, but with my own twist and personality woven in to make it my own. This little doll, however, is way beyond my realm. I will treasure her and put her in a prominent spot in my studio so that she can inspire me whenever I'm creating.
Shari also included this darling Thank You card that she created. Yeah, that's another thing beyond my realm!
And check out this sweet little frozen charlotte she included with my package. I was thrilled to see this because I've only ever seen these on other's blogs or shops, never owned one of my own.
Shari, I can't thank you enough for making me my own special doll necklace.
If you've never been to playswithpaper
well, you must go see Shari's creations! You won't be disappointed..:)
Plus, she's having a giveaway....hurry!

Hi Gail, I was the lucky person who purchased this doll, I am so happy that you got one too, don't you just love Shari's beautiful work. I am such a big fan of hers. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Terri

Gail said...

Those leg necklaces are darling, no?
And Terri, you snagged that necklace pretty darn quick and I don't blame you one bit! Now we're both lucky!

You girls are so fun. I think we have woven a friendly little web here. Too funny. That's what happens when we all love the same creations. And that doll necklace is just amazing.

Gail said...

Hey Rhonda,
Thanks for joining our little party! Yes, we do love the same things, makes it really fun to find like-minded souls....I know so many around me who just don't "get it", kwim?

That is indeed an amazing necklace Gail! I do love her key arms, but it is her legs that fascinate me! And, the little frozen charlotte....how sweet all wrapped up in seam binding ♥

Gail said...

Hi Diane!
I know what you mean, it's hard to pick which part of her is the cutest!
Those legs are sooo cute..

Hi Gail...That doll necklace is just darling. I've never seen anything like that before. What creativity. To answer your question about my new car, I chose a Ford Escape SUV and I'm loving it so far. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family !!
