meet deidre

I came across this folk art doll on a friends blog (christi) she is super talented....!! the doll's name is deidre clementine...and here is what was wrote about her
Deidre (meaning "broken-hearted") has had some unfortunate relationships in the past. She was always searching for the love of someone else to make her feel complete. Now she's barefoot and poor, with her grandmother's heirloom necklace as her sole remaining possession of any value. After a string of greedy and hurtful lovers, Deidre has decided to brush herself off and mend her broken heart. And though she's lost her way before, Miss Deidre Clementine is finally on the right path. She's beginning to learn how to love and respect HERSELF.Deidre is enjoying her time here in our home, but she's feeling the urge to travel and see what this world has to offer. I know there's a kind soul out there that would love to care for Deidre through the rest of her journey....could that person be you?
I just had to have her when I seen her...and I know that christi is working on another art folk doll, I can't wait to see who the next one will be here is her blog addy http://www.createdbycoffee.blogspot.com/ I think it's kinda funny..that sommer is a little freaked out by her....when we were taking her out of the box...Sommer is like I feel like she is gonna jump out at me....I told her that's crazy...she waits til we are all asleep...and runs through the house!! yeah..she didn't like that either....

Went and put the kits together for the Design team at Scrappy chic..it's a little pressure...being the design team coordinator...but it ended up being alot of fun...and hope the ladies like what they get in their kits...I hope to get to play with some of my stuff at the weekend crop!!
also had to get...some of the new 7 gypsies...I am in love with the new gypsy line...and check out the mini book covers!! yumm...I am already working on a mini book....it's just a mini book of some of my favorite song lyrics...I did the cover last night...then hated it...ripped the alphas off.....ended up messing it up...but then I liked the messed up version better....so hopefully I will finish it this weekend...
and I also am now the proud owner of the coolest scrapbook scissors EVA!! Fiskars... scissors with skull and cross bones on them..used my 40% off coupon on these bad boys!!! Scrappy chic had these and another design...more girly...but these are just more me...
so I was almost packed last night for the crop....when I got an itch to start that mini album..so I need to repack!! To say I am excited for this weekend is an understatement...!! Me and sommer were trying to guess how many layouts I will get done...since we will be scrappin' from like 6pm-Mid on friday...and 8am-9pm on saturday....I told her that I was hoping for 8....she laughed and said yeah...probably only 2...ouch!! these crops...which there are 2 a year...one in march and one in october...always will remind me of Ed...we never had alot of money for "real" vacations...so we all looked forward to staying at the hotel...for the weekend..twice a year.....but the week before he passed away..we were beyond broke...and we didn't go...but he told me to at least go to the scrapbooking..even if we could'nt afford...the hotel....So I'm left with the memory of him as always putting me first.....(and then he sent the roses to the crop)...but I wish we would've been able to spend one last weekend......but me and sommer were talking this morning...about him..and our memories ....which I love doing with her...but again I am so thankful...for such beautiful..peaceful memories...of our family..I am just missing him pretty severe...right now..yesterday while cooking dinner...I kept trying to imagine him..walking up behind me...asking what's for dinner...or hearing him click away at that remote looking for something good on tv...just feeling empty...so anyway...you see why I am looking for an escape this weekend....

Oh, I'm SO glad she made it safely, and I couldn't have picked a more perfect and loving home for her to go to! Tell Sommer that my oldest was kinda creeped out by her, too, lol! Guess I would've been, since normally I don't like dolls, but I MADE her and I know she's good people. :)
Girl, I KNOW you rock at making kits, and that one looks like no exception....wish I was on that DT, those lucky gals!
