Happy, Happy First Day of Spring!

Meet Prissy Printemps.
She is happy to be out in the newness of springtime in her new denim dress, but she is not pleased with the two craft sticks that had to be hot glued to her behind to help her stand up. Perhaps that is why she has that snide expression sewed upon her face.

I had all of the materials and extras, seen here on hand, except for the hat. I confidently went into Michaels and then JoAnnes, but there were no itty bitty straw hats to be found. I finally made one with burlap saturated with glue and formed around half of a Styrofoam ball.
Prissy was pleased, but not enough to give up her sarcastic "nice try on the face" expression. Oh, well.

Prissy should be grateful to you! I like her hat much more knowing its made by you instead of bought.

She's a funny one!

Have a great Pink Saturday!

What a cute doll. Quite frankly I like "snide" faces, but that's another story.

This is my second comment. The first one didn't get accepted so Joey helped me with this one. Love your new blog, especially the music (after I figured out where it was coming from). Miss Prissy gets an A+ with a magna cum laude from your proud Mom. You are so creative. Love you, MOM
