Handmade Life made Simple

Real life captured in Doll form
I have just been in heaven making the betty dolls from Mollie Makes.

When my sister announced her engagement this week I instantly knew that I wanted to make her and her boyfriend in doll form.

I am so happy lately sewing and creating in my space.
I was just telling Rhonda at A Little Bit French today that I just had too much stuff to enjoy creating.  Once I let it all go and only have what I know I can use.  I have just enough for what I am capable of using as one person.
If I need something, I go buy one, use it and its done.  No hoarding, no stacking away.  It feels amazing.  The way it should be.  It works for me and I am happy, happy, happy. 

No more overwhelmed feelings of what am I going to make today,  or where is that tool or piece of ephemera I need.  It is all simple, organized and clean.

Okay I gotta go my hubby is holding his head wanting Caffeine and says my coffee is the best, ;)  yeah right, I know he is just too tired to do it himself.

Enjoy your day my friend!

LOVE the dolls...okay....now I just have to say that if you were able to get rid of all your things as quickly as it seems to me since you began, then you only THOUGHT you were a hoarder!!! I am REALLY in bad shape, and in BIG trouble.... I admire your tenacity to get rid and only keep that you could use. I hope to get there ONE day! But first I have to go make something!
