Creativity Contest! First Doll I Dressed Was A Storyteller! Dress A Doll And Win!

What is the contest?  Make and dress a doll no taller than six inches out of anything you can find that you would normally view as something else.  It could be a stick, clothes pin, drinking straws, spoon or sculpt your very own doll.  Start making it as something you would be proud of. 

Prize?  Visit the website of http://www.sandycalderon.com/ and select an undressed doll for $60.00 or less and I will dress it for you FREE!  Or if you want to dress your own doll, Sandy will mail it to you postage free. 
"The Storyteller" was the first doll I dressed a few years ago and Sandy Calderon encouraged me to dress her by sending her to me FREE OF CHARGE!  Sandy had seen some of my doll clothes for sale on eBay and told me if I could make a doll dress on a hanger I could dress a doll.  Of course I said I couldn't, but Sandy, a total stranger at the time convinced me that I could dress this doll.  I dressed her and she sold on eBay for $218.00 and I was shocked, hooked and never looked back.  Thank you Sandy!

Purpose?  This contest is used as a method to tap into creativity that you may have never discovered and to share that discovery with the rest of the world.  All you have to do is join my blog as a follower, yes, I am seeking more followers, leave me a comment with a picture of your creation that I can post on my blog.   Make sure the image size of the picture is 1024x768 or smaller. 

How is the winner picked?  I will show the pictures to my 5 and 2 year old grandsons and under my supervision, let them pick the best of the best.  I will put those pictures in a hat and let my 5 year old pull a name out of the hat.  If you are a professional doll maker, while you are making your doll remember who the judges will be, therefore, the more colorful they are the better.  Doll can be male or female.  Only two entries per follower please.  If you are the winner and want to be featured on my blog along with your doll, please be prepared to tell me your life story even if you are only 2 years old.  Winner will be featured the third week of February 2012.  Thank you.

All entries must be submitted no later than 11:00 A.M. Friday February 3, 2012.

You don't know how to dress a doll?  Tutorial by Sandy no later than Tuesday, January 24th.  Please keep checking back.

I cannot end my blog by thanking those of you who are followers, leave comments and send me encouraging e-mails and phone calls:  An example:

I love reading your blog.  Keep it coming.  You are truly an inspiration.  Excited about life and full of love.  Whatever you're taking, I want some.   ; )   Your blog encourages me and helps me to re-focus my attention to what is important.    You spoke to my spirit.  I need to slow down and take some time to relax and enjoy all the beauty that God has put in my life.  Then celebrate!  Amen.  I’m looking forward to your future tutorials on cooking, marriage, and sex.  lol

Your 2 grandsons are sooooooo HANDSOME.  You must be so proud.

Thank you for inviting me and thank you for becoming a follower of my blog. After reading many of your posts I know there is a reason we connected. One of my favorite Scriptures:
James 1:5
"But if any of you lacketh wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all liberally and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." American Standard Version (ASV)
