This image, showing a doll's tiny criss-crossed legs and itty-bitty feet is found at ChellyWood.com, where a blog post encourages blog followers to dialog about doll shoes in the comments. In this image, the doll appears to be seated in a wicker chair and her bare feet are a bit out of focus. In the foreground, however, her shoes are sharply focused, and they are pink with a T-strap. They may only be a centimetre long with an even tinier heel. The blog post that accompanies this image is great for anyone wanting to chat with other doll collectors and doll shoe makers about collecting and making shoes for dolls.

Claudia (AKA “Try Again Guchi”) has a personal blog with an “entertainment” theme. She blogs about her learning experiences with crafting, plus her favorite books, movies, and TV shows.

Why I’m jumping on the bandwagon with free #clothmask patterns #thisweek

I wasn’t gonna go there. There are so many sensationalist tutorial videos on YouTube right now, showing you how to make cloth face masks, that when I started seeing this trend on social media, I said to my husband, “I’m not going to jump on that bandwagon.” First of all, I don’t like when a crafter’s whole motivation is about going viral or making money. … Continue reading Why I’m jumping on the bandwagon with free #clothmask patterns #thisweek

Behind her is a purple backdrop with the ChellyWood.com logo hanging on it.
