Where in the world do I begin!  Time Flys, so much has happened since my last blog post. Okay, I will start with now,  I have a website which can be found at . My Fabulous Floozies are there along with Artist Fibers, WireLace, Ribbons and more.

Gallery 225 has closed its doors Mary Ellen has retired and on to new adventures. I picked up all my Floozies after two wonderful years and am now thinking and looking for new avenues to sell them.

My Dragon Rider won a First Place Blue Ribbon, in my category with 98 out of 100 points darn near perfect at the Creations in Fiber Conference in Albuquerque, NM June 2011.  I was very excited and pleased to say the least.  I was not able to attend the 2012 conference but there is always 2013.

Not sure where to begin, so much has happened since January.
Rodeo Rita was published in March issue and Sunburn Suzie was published in July issue of Soft Dolls and Animals Magazine.

In March, ten of my Fabulous Floozie dolls made their debut in a shop out in Scottsdale along with 4 other larger size dolls. In April Dottie the dog lady was sold I was happy and sad all at the same time.

May 1st, Twelve of my Fabulous Floozies are selected to go into Gallery 225 in Gilbert. Talk about exciting I was jumping up and down. The Fabulous Floozies are my designs. They are approximately 12 inches tall.

May 20th I attended a wonderful conference in New Mexico. Creations in Fiber in Albuquerque. I went with 5 other girls from our doll club (Dollie MaMa and the Fabric Floozies and Mary) Mary doesn't like the floozie part of our name but she still loves us and prays for us. I entered one of my dolls in a challenge C. C. Cookie is her name (This doll was adapted from a Patti Culea pattern) and I won first place in my category (Beginning Professional) which was another exciting moment.

I took a class from Arley Berryhill a wonderful Artist and Teacher, the class was Masked Ball. This class was on costuming I learned quite a bit from him. Arley was also very entertaining I thoroughly enjoyed his class. As soon as I finish her I will post a photo of her. I wasn't happy with her head so I deheaded her and now she is sporting a new head just need to sew on her hair and arms.

I met so many talented artists at this conference I am looking forward to next year.

I thought since I mentioned my Fabulous Floozies a few posts back I should give you a sneak peak at them.

I am having so much fun making these Fabulous Floozies with their Sassy Sayings. Its probably because they are the wilder side of who I want to be... to a point. They do allow me to say things I might not normally say out loud.

This sweet little nun is a bit discheveled in her mini skirt, halter top, & black ultra suede boots with fringe. I'll probably go to hell for making this one. Although the tag that is attached to her says "Bless Me Father For I Have Sinned".

The Floozie dressed in pink with a Martini Glass, her tag says "Good Girls are made of Sugar and Spice, Bad girls are made of Vodka and Ice"

I have 10 Fabulous Floozies created and 10 more on the drawing board, or should I say sewing table. They are available for purchase for $100.00 each. I welcome custom orders, if interested please contact me.

New Location for Dollie MaMa and the Fabric Floozies Doll Club

Great News!!! Dollie MaMa and the Fabric Floozies has a new location.

Day & Date: Second Wednesday of the month
Time: Noon-2 pm(so we don't have to drive when it's dark)
Place: YMCA-Valley of the Sun Power Ranch Family YMCA, 4546 East Haven Crest, Gilbert, AZ 85297 in the Power Ranch community.

Same Great price of $5.00 per meeting, per month as long as we have 10 ladies.

We have lots of room to grow, light, bright and great atmosphere. We have more elbow room, The increased space will not only allow us to accommodate additional members, but also provide space to bring in other artists as instructors for seminars... which could even stimulate club growth by making other artists in the area aware of our group. My goal as the club founder is to bring in fresh ideas and techniques that will benefit each of us. As our club grows, I also hope to obtain discounts and other benefits for club members with fabric stores and other merchants in the area

Traci - Hair Stylist Doll

Traci was fun to make, probably because she was made with love for my favorite hair stylist. Traci has blonde fun fur hair with a few streaks of color and blue eyes almost like the real Traci minus the fun fur for hair.

Her dress and slip on shoes were made with a Batik fabric and a solid hot pink fabric for her pants. I purchased a child’s size toothbrush, cut off most of the handle and then rounded and sanded the end to make it smooth, (Dennis did the cutting and sanding part). Voila... a little hairbrush! I also found a pair of tiny scissors and a hair blower that were little charms and tucked then into her waist band of her dress.

Here she is at her new home BB Harringtons in Chandler, Arizona.
