1884 Barbie style doll
People that visit the Old Jail are so fascinated with clothing from the bustle era that I spent a ridiculous amount of time creating this doll's dress & hair. She has everything that an upper middle class woman would wear to go 'visiting'. She has: pantaloons, undershirt, corset, lobster tail bustle, petticoat, basque dress, drapery, & shoes!
Zibbet is Gone! Go to my new site!
Zibbet has been sold. So my main large shop is here:
Geeky Ring Boxes
I've made & sold geeky engagement ring boxes for over 10 years now. Mostly I make Whovian boxes- but I've made Stargate, Star Wars, Farscape & many more over the years. Here is some of the newest Doctor Who themed ring boxes! Find them in my Etsy shop or my Zibbet shop! YAY GEEK!
Covid 19 and life
My household & family is made up of 2 people and I am VERY protective of my Mom. This virus has thrown a loop into everyone's life- ours included. From March 10th to June 15th we had 0 interactions with the outside world EXCEPT to ship out face masks. Now I go out 1x a week to 2 small businesses for food. At both places I still have minimum interaction.
ANYWAY all we seem to do is make face masks! Face coverings for geeks and everyone else. Here at August 13th we are at 2,075 masks. Need 1 or more? go here: enchantedcraft.zibbet.com/
I volunteer to docent at the Historic 1884 Jail here in Dahlonega during special events and to bring joy to everyone I love dressing up in the correct time period. As much as I love hoop dresses- the jail was built after that time so none of the doors/rooms work for me to dress that way. Mostly I wear bustle dresses and our visitors love it. Since the Jail tends to be open during the hot months I have been updating my wardrobe for the heat. Here is one of the dresses so far!
For the 68th National Square Dance Convention held this year in Atlanta I re-worked a couple of square dance outfits and made 1 new one- the 'Georgia' skirt & top.
The Youth Room of the 68th National Square Dance Convention held in Atlanta 2019
I chose the theme for the Youth Room to be "Georgia is MAGIC" with all the decorations as an homage to Harry Potter.
More things for the 68th NSDC
The 68th National Square Dance Convention is almost here! I thought everyone would like to see a few more things that will be in the Youth Room!
My New Dress for the 68th NSDC
This one took a ton of time because the skirt is hand painted- even the background blues & purples. It is filled with Georgia elements including our state bird, insect, mammal, flower, fruit, tree and crop. Those of you who are going to the convention will discover many of the same elements on the program cover (that I also designed & painted). The top features hand smocking- a time consuming technique that just looks amazing!
Hand Painted Backdrops for the Harry Potter themed Youth Room- 68th National Square Dance Convention ATLANTA
Hard to tell in these pictures but these average 70 inches wide and 90 inches tall. They will be found throughout the youth room.
My musings wander from earth to sky.
