Me and Mama Betty finally finished Coco!!!  I posted some pictures of her earlier last year with no hair, no clothes just her pretty blue eyes…..At that time I was in the process of learning how to crochet her socks….Well she is all dress now….and absolutely gorgeous….I going to share with you some pictures of the process of getting her dress.  I have so many pictures of this doll I will need to share in 2 different posting.

Christmas Tea Party with the Bebe’s

Yes, I know it’s January and I should be posting stuff about the New Year but……I had to share this with you…… I just finally got the time to post this….and yes it has to do with Christmas….A Lovely Christmas Tea Party Mama Betty gave at her house just before Christmas.  This would have been my last doll class for the year before the Holidays.  Instead of a doll class, she surprised me with this lovely Christmas Tea Party with the Bebe’s.

2

Only a selected few were invited…..

These are some of her smaller Bebe’s.  Aren’t they adorable…..  🙂

She also surprised me with a very special gift…..

She gave me…..

KARL!!!!

Yes, you heard me right….That cute little fellow in the blue sailor suit in the picture above…..

I still can’t believe she gave him to me…..It’s really a big deal when a doll artist gives one of her dolls away….

A BIG THANK YOU to Mama Betty….I will always cherish him……

The table was set with a bright red linen tablecloth….

Notice the beautiful red glittering sled also behind the bebe’s…

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a doll on my blog.  To be honest….it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything…..I glad to announce that I’m back…..

I had such a wonderful time this week at my doll class with Mama Betty….

She is such a special lady…….I can’t think of any words to express how I feel about that special Woman of God….no matter what kind of week I have had….she seems to always point me back to Jesus….getting me back on track again…..I thank her for that…
