CaydiDoll the Doll – Part 12

Merry Christmas! I hope everyone is having a happy and safe holiday season. I’ve been pretty busy but I’m sure you have too. ūüôā I wanted to update my blog with my last Caydi collection piece for this year! I can’t believe it has¬†been a whole year already. This year flew by so fast and I’m sad to see it ending already. I won’t see the Year of the Dragon for another whole 12 years! :O Umhmm, I enjoy the Chinese Zodiac. ūüėÄ Anyway, back on topic, for my last piece I took the “doll” of CaydiDoll and made it real! I think she looks pretty cute, but I’ll keep trying to make her figure better in the future. Enjoy!

If some of you remember my “Nerdy Caydi” for my October collection I actually retouch some bits and pieces and made it into a digital print.

Caydi and Cubli Ornaments- Part 11

With everything going on I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to meet the deadline for this little project before November ended but I did get it done! I made little Caydi¬†and Cubli ornaments! Nothing fancy, but I was so eager to make¬†them because after such a long time, my husband and I finally bought a Christmas tree! This is our¬†FIRST tree¬†EVER since I met him in late 2001, amazing! It stands two feet tall¬†I believe and we got it from Lowes. I’m very excited about it. ^_^ I don’t know what took us so long…Hmm. ūüôā Anyway after getting the tree, it was obviously very bare, and I decided to take it upon myself to make the first two ornaments for it! I hope you like. Have a safe and happy holidays!

Caydi’s Dress Up – Part 9 and Nicci

The Hmong New Years are still months away but Caydi is ready to dress up for them!

Caydi’s outfit here is a “sneak peek” to some other ideas I have coming up. I have so many ideas and projects that I’m sure you are confused with what’s what! I’m sorry! >.< I’m also planning on making Cubli some clothing too, he looks so cold! Lol.

As mention in my last post I bought a dress form and have decided to name her Nicci. It’s been fun having Nicci! She’s a great model and here she is with a skirt I sewed.

This skirt was again Hmong inspired and took me two days to finish. I used four and a half yard of fabric on it. I went to Wal-Mart yesterday hoping to get more of the same fabric to make the skirt a bit more poufy but could not find¬†it at all! I was very disappointed but it’s okay, Wal-Mart hasn’t been very reliable for me as far as fabrics. >.< I came home and decided to just space the pleats out. Instead of using a set waist measurement I did the wrap technique which is how Hmong skirts usually come. I’m very happy with it but am planning on making another one soon and this time I have enough fabric. ¬†ūüėČ

Hope you like the new updates. ūüôā Have a great day!

Caydi and Cubli – Part 8

Before going any further I must say my images have not been top shape lately! I’m sorry! >.<

Moving on…for this month¬†I decided to make a pillow of Caydi¬†and Cubli¬†together! Excuse Caydi¬†for being neckless. ^o^¬† Lol.

Cubli¬†is easily getting adjusted to Caydi. He’s been very playful and has discover a new angle¬†to view the world, on top of¬†Caydi’s head! Here they are.

 

I have also¬†taken on a new adventure WordPressers,¬†crocheting! Seeing all the beautiful crocheted items on¬†fellow blogger’s pages made me want¬†to try it out too.¬†I’m learning slowly and viewing a lot of YouTube videos to help me. ūüôā I’ve been practicing with¬†balls and turtles. It has been really enjoyable and I hope I can share some crochet projects in the future.

Good night.
