Aloha Doll for the Comfort Doll Project

During my time with my pal, I was able to finish another one of my Aloha dolls for the Comfort Doll Project. I'm hoping to get her done & put her in the mail this next week. Here she is:

I hope someone really loves her...she's filled with lots of love in each stitch!

CC's Tin Folk

OK...I finally figured it out. Those little people I'm making for the tins? Well, they're not gods & goddesses, but Tin Folk! Not to be confused with any of my Kin Folk! These are just art pieces! They are a product of an artist's imagination, and any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental! (So Patti, that Little Ms. Sunshine may "appear" to resemble you, but it's really not!!! Love you, Cuz! And Ms. Blue Moon isn't you, honey! Even if you are in touch with your feminine side & really, really love blue!) ;)

Anyway, here's a couple of them finished. Now I just have to make their houses for them out of the tins! I'm sure they will be just right for each one!

These folk will eventually find their way to my etsy store until they find someone who can't wait to live with them!

April's BJP is done, but what's wrong w/this picture?

OK...I know we all run into problems w/beading, but how many of you run into this? Can you see what's wrong?

Can't tell huh? Let's look a little closer...

That's right...up in the right hand corner...gecko poop!!! Ack!!! Those little buggers go everywhere! :) But we love 'em anyway! How they eat those mosquitos!

But in spite of a little bit of poo, I did get my April Blue Marble BJP piece done. Here's some pics:

I'm still a little behind 'cuz I've been gone awhile helping a pal after surgery. AND my computer blew while I was gone. But I'm back now & will get May started before the end of the day tomorrow. I already have the shape decided on, & the colors chosen, but I'm thinkin' that may change. Ya never know!


OMG! The vog was so bad lately! For those who don't know what it is, here's a definition:
"Vog, a portmanteau of volcanic and fog by analogy with smog, is volcanic smog formed when sulfur dioxide and other pollutants emitted by an erupting volcano mixes with oxygen and moisture in the presence of sunlight." It's been stuck over us after floating over from Big Island! It's really not healthy to breathe. I put in some pics for you to see above. I'm amazed that even w/all the vog, this beautiful flower bloomed!!! Check it out:
