Goodbye Old Friend

Martha is an old craft fair doll and a particular friend of mine. She and I go way back but I think its finally time to let her go to a new home. I'll be putting her up on etsy today.

I've been thinking I'd like to add some background music to my blog but I'm not sure how to do it. Does anyone have any experience with this?


  1. She is wonderfully charming! I like the idea that she is an old friend of yours.. It's like you're sharing an old friend by letting her go~

  2. Here's a link to the playlist I have on my blog. It's very user friendly and they have lots of music to choose from.

    I know what you mean by letting go of a good friend. I still have a doll that I will not let go of because she represents another lifetime for youth...not that I want to go back, hell no, but it's about another time during my creative journey and my children when they were little ones.


  3. Hi, I use Playlist too, and I know what you mean about having some dolls you keep around. "Magenta Khalo" went to so many craft fairs with me I thought of her as staff! Someone eventually asked how much she was and I said "she's not for sale" - which was the first I'd heard of it! :o)

  4. Oh, she is wonderful! Yes, there are certain pieces that I think you can form a real bond with and it is achingly hard to let them go!

  5. Thank you everyone for the compliments and advice on music.

    I am ashamed to say it but I become attached to my dolls as I make them. I tell them encouraging things to help them along "you're looking so good" etc. It's always a little sad to see one go but particularly sad for one like Martha, like Yve I thought of her as almost a partner.
