What is on my Table for today

Every feel like some times you actually get on a roll when your creating ?  Well I do, Today is one of those day.As I started painting faces on 3 different dolls, Hubby kept coming in the  my sewing room and said "Babe why don't we put the 6 foot table back up in here" "You look so crunched up in  a small table. Well I am now  taking a break, Not waiting for my doll faces to dry. Nope just waiting the get up n go to do the.  re-arranging once again of the sewing .
My sewing room actually is our 3rd bed room, which we have turned in to "Sewing Room"
I think it is 8 X 11, 6 foot table is totally awesome , I even have a area on the table where I can iron, I can do any thing all in one room.
And I am so more organized ! But it is a narrow path to go behind it where the sewing machine is and my chair where I sit up to my table. But know what I just don't care .
It really works for me and that is what is important!
Any ways here are the dolls I am working on. One doll is a Rag Doll. I really want to do her her face is charcoal.She just speaks to me to do that. The other 3 are going to be Whimsical Raggedy's .I am ready for Fun, Spring bright colors !
Tomorrow I will be able to get a lot more done on them and finish the two little ones. But for now yep grabbing hubby and getting  the big table put back up ,Have a Great Day!!, Sherrie

Shadow Box Just Magical

Have you ever created  some thing  you are actually really proud of ?
For me I can't say every thing I create I feel that way about, I am  my own worst critic.
 But the two things I am sharing with you today are special to me, and they make me smile, and They are special and magical in their own way. I have shared my Valentines Day Pin Keep.
Now I would like to share a small Shadow box I created, When I look at it .
It's crazy but it makes me just feel so whimsical, Simplicity, and just fun. 
 I really hit the jack pot at the dollar store, I found these awesome Shadow Boxes for $1.00,
 So I bought 12 of them.Click to enlarge pictures:
 I added from Christmas cards, The Tree, Snowman ,Snow Woman, 
Hand colored with Acrylics, The Penguin, Snowman ,Snow Woman their Hats, Scarfs, Touches of color here and there. 
I added snow and German  Crystals, Painted the frame Ivory and top coated it in Aqua and then distressed it,
 The frame size is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2
Living in Florida, Yeppers I keep this out in sight all year long !

I Love U Pin Keep

Wow can you believe Valentines Day is just around the corner !
I would like to share with you a Valentines Day Pin Keep I created.

 It is a SympleTymes original ! I drew the hand sign language symbol which means 
"I Love You"
 I am proud of this little pin keep, Let me tell you turning those tiny little fingers inside out was a huge victory for me. NO blow outs!!
 back Side of pin I hand sewed a pin clasp nice and secure
 The size of this Pin Keep is 2 1/2 wide, and 3 inches long to the tip of the Lady Bug
Showing size compared to a quarter...
I added the Lady Bug because Lady Bugs mean Love also Good Luck, You need both when falling in Love!
