Last Wednesday was a big, exciting day around here. It had the potential to be a sad, stressful day - Thursday was my return to (corporate) work date - but instead . . . THINGS happened!
First, Making Friends got a mention in an article. Amazing! Then, my long-awaited new skin tones arrived in the mail! I was so excited to see them that I pulled a muscle in my neck craning to see the postal van in my driveway.
As a testament to my excitement, I couldn't even wait to get started on a new, sunny-skinned doll. And so Sunny Skye came to be.
I've been aching to make a striped rainbow doll for quite a while now. I love doing custom work - I really do. Bringing a customer's vision to life, delighting children and their parents. It's really rewarding - but there's something to be said for having the space to be creative and just do whatever I want, too.
I love the way Sunny turned out so much that her photo shoot took extra long. I had to stop and play with her between shots. HAD to.
Seriously. The pig-tails had to happen.
I love the buttons on the back of the shirt. They are purely decorative, but they really up the cuteness factor of the shirt, I think.
Sunny is available for purchase on Etsy. She's going to make a great best friend for someone lucky!
