It matches my blog I guess you can say
I guess sense im now as Craftymummy2two all over the net its not a bad thing.
If I do good at the store I Will probley Change it or even Open up my own site, ( actually looking in to that now * thanks BellaKarma* )
I still havent figured out anything about the PDF file OR whatever
So to the newwest Dark Sister
This lil One may be leaving me soon We will see...
As of now Im Calling Her Corral
I love the way she turned out and she has some cute lil Features.
( I wasn't sure about the neon Pink but I think the end result turned out great)
( I couldn't fix the color's in the photo to the actuall colors but the purple IS more Purple than that the camera made it more of a blue, THE white in her hair is actually a light pink She wasn't that easy to photo due to the abstract of different colors)
Im soooo Proud of her out fit I actually Crochet it....

(what my link button will look like in a larger scale)
Of course its not all going to be my dark dolls But they are kinda turning into my specialty.
I will be selling finished dolls.. The regular size dolls are around 13 in long and will be going for I'm thinking some where between $75-$80 ( the dark dolls that is sense there is alot more detail in them and of course the thick Hair. etc.. ) So do you guys think that is a reasonable price.. That is only For the one's Like Bobby and Myla!!! For Ones like Oswald and Bubbles I was thinking around the $50-$60 ( there isn't as much detail and Plus not the dark hair) and for the Monster pets like Meow-key $30-$35.. ( due to they are alot smaller ) Please leave a comment on what you all think.
I would l like to sell some of my first patterns that I have wrote up But Am having a problem Figuring out the how to make them in to PDF File where when you load it it will be three or more pages together so far all I figured out is to make 1 page then have to send lets say the three pages by them selves.. So lets say My pattern is going to be three pages Cover page and then pattern pages .. How in the world can I make them in to three together instead of three separate sheets to send.
So if any one has info On this plzzz share... You can email me at toewsrus(@)gmail(.)com
So My store .. Gloomy Gurumi's
I was getting things going lastnight and well Noticed something I should have had before The link to the store will be my Username :( So I have to delete my old account and start again.. I want it to be GloomyGurumis.etsy not craftymummy2two.etsy

I wasn't sure about her when I was making her and thought she wasn't going to turn out the way I wanted her to..
BuT Im really happy with her out come and I think I did a pretty good job for doing the hardest pattern in the book.
I used these Cute lil Brands ( I think thats what they are called) for her shoes..
I got them at the craft store in the Scrapbook section i thing there adorable that is also what used on her shirt instead of a button.
Tanning in the sun lol
Well hope every one had a great weekend, It was really nice here and with the nice weather we lost most of are SNOW * ya* We still have some left man alive its the end of April, BUt then again Im in Canada THe northern part of Alberta so snow at the end of April isn't to rare. We are getting some nice lovely April Showers tonight.
* April Showers Bring MAy Flowers*

I like the way s he turned out I wasn't Feeling the red at first but once I got her done I'm happy with the out come.. I guess she isn't complete yet.. NEEDS CLOTHES LMAO
One last shot of Myla By her self. I think Bobby feels a little bit better now sense she isn't the only one in the house now that is soooo dark. But its sad to say that one of these gals may be leaving me. My uncle wanted to buy Bobby off me during Easter and I told him to wait till I do another one. SO I will be letting him choose what one he wants to buy.. :( Not sure if I'm ready to let either of them go yet.
So Write after I Finished Myla I started on another , Its from The Book I posted Yesterday
Its Strawberry !!!! of course Silly me goes to the back of the book to start at the hardest pattern but so far she is turning out good. I don't have the ears attached yet though and well am working at it oddly sense I got the head /body started last night and Should have really started the way the pattern says at the arms so I have had to stop with the body and work the arms lol
Hopefully will Finish more today

Each one Of my Monster Dolls have toes ( well the newer ones any way) With my monster pets there feet are a tad Bigger here is a close up of them :)
I have a custom Order to do I have to make another Bobby well of course it won't be Bobby but another Dark monster doll. I can't wait to start this new one. I hope to make a boy dark one as well and a gloomy pet to go with them. :)
I have been asked about prices and am still having a hard time deciding withe these ones they take allot longer that the normal ones due to detailing. ( I put allot of love and work in to all my pieces and will not usually photo them unless I'm happy with the out come.)
So feel free to suggest me prices in my blog post about Bobby I wrote the sizes. IT usually takes me from 3 - 5 days to get one done depending on what is going on in my life.
Any way here is a couple last pics that I took and enjoyed.. Hope you all do to!!
And why not another group Shot

I took Me awile to get her finished and well her hair
was so much fun when I had it all done Kiera decided to Cut her hair so I had to fix it all up..
Bobby Is alot bigger that the rest I will take photos of all them together later today..
To see more photos go to my Flickr page ...
She also has a bra and Panties will try to get some pics of that later due to the ones I took Im not to happy about :)
Update.. I have been Asked what Bobby's Measurements are and really you can't tell the size of anything in photo's.. ( I try to make most of my creatures at a reasonable size I like making small ones but love taking the extra time and effort to get them bigger)
Bobby Measures 13 1/2 in long from her head - toes
Bubbles measure 11 inches long
Oswald is a whole 10 inches long ( hes a shorty)
I made Bobby's legs alot longer than Bubbles and Oswalds.. MAde her more lanky the size difference between Bubles and Oswald has to do with the yarn.. They have the same amount of stithes and Rnds.
Monday, April 6, 2009
Now.. I love her and can't wait to get the body and rest finished... I think She shall be sitting next to my computer next to my Nightmare Before Christmas Calender :)

She is a tad bigger due to the fact I used a more thicker yarn ..
Bubbles Dress was fun I had no clue what I was doing I tried many many many Things but finally cut to pieces and Added an elastic around the top.. I love the Fabric and actually bought it to make a Yarn Bag For myself :)
But I need to go my daughter is being a lil grouchy she has a cold and well Lets just say I hope it goes away by this weekend.. ITS HER BIRTHDAY.. My baby is Turning 3 :( Maybe the terrible twos will run away that day hahahaha Wonder what year Three of Kiera's life will bring forward and what new things she will Teach me.. my son was a way different Fish lol
