It was a fun weekend of creativity and shopping. I metup Friday with Bet and Sally at the Scrapbook Expo at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. First thing I did was sit down at a Cricut demostration and I actually learned something and, yes I did buy stuff there.
It was fun checking out the new scrapbook papers and tools but I tried not buy but still love to window shop. Bet and I did a make n'take at Tattered Angels using Glimmer Mists. Most of the booths were charging $4 and $5 for a make and take but this booth's make n'take was FREE and fun.
We made a little page and had fun spraying the table and Bet even sprayed her face! I didn't buy any but you know what? I think I have a couple bottles around here somewhere. I think I'll dig them out and play with them :}
Later in the afternoon we decided to check out the craft show next door. It was pretty quiet in there and more country cutesy (I call it that). Still some great handmade items to check out and BUY.
We happened upon a pile of jewelry and Bet and Sally started digging. I really have plenty of that too. HEY! I think I have too much stuff!! So I went on over to the booth next door. She was an antique dealer with mostly paper empherma. I happened upon these cute paper doll sheets by Grace Drayton....this little dolly is called Dolly Dingles.
Well I kinda "yelped" and showed Bet what I found and Zoommmm she was there. Sally was intent on her "bling" search as we continued ours. All in all, we all ended up with treasures. Such fun. Here's some pics of the paper dolls I have.
Researching Dolly Dingle on the internet I found a wonderful site that told me all about Dolly Dingle Paper Dolls and her creator. If you have some time, you really should check it out. There is information on how Dolly Dingle came about and information about the creator. It even tells you how to draw a Dolly Dingle! Also, there is all types of information about different dolls, very interesting.
Check it out, I think I could spend a good part of a day reading from this site. http://www.dollkind.com/dolly-dingle-doll.shtml
