2008 review

Bear with me- I find this kind of analysis very helpful.

I finished 72 dolls this year-

and some cookies.

There were 23 tattooed men in various modes of fashion-

18 girl dolls-

11 babies

15 ladies-

2 gifts that inspired 24 more tiny world pincushions-

And the other stuff- I went to NYC, London, Portland, OR, and Chicago. I met Diane, Melissa, Jan and Susan in person. The paperbag swag project got finished after a long delay caused by 4 out of the 6 participants having babies- a pretty good excuse I’d say. I grew tomatoes! I did 4 shows. I was mentioned on Design Sponge by guest bloggers in January (Thanks Kath!) and then again in December (Thanks Camilla!). That was a little freaky. And, one of my dolls is Mr. April in the Whip Up calendar. All in all, it was another great year for my artwork and for my own crafty blogging universe.

Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by and visited and left comments or not in 2008. Happy, healthy and creative 2009 to all!

  1. And the feature in Craft. A very good year Mimi. Here’s to 2009 and hope that I’ll make it to the “met” list!

  2. Hi, first of all I want to congratulate you with New Year and wish you good luck in all your new projects. Recently I’ve discovered your web and I’m amazed by your dolls and hand-made works. They are very unusual and at the same time very nice and kind, and I like the way how you organise it in your blog. I ask you for help.
    How can I make a mosaic out of small photos ?
    Can you give me a link with description, how to make it ?

  3. Wow- More than a doll a week.
    If you ever print your photos as cards or prints I would love (and pay for) the black-eyed boy and sad girl in a flash !!!
    What a wonderful body of work for 2008. I look forward to each and every doll of 2009.

  4. That’s a very impressive 2008, Mimi! Congratulations on a stellar year :). I, for one, am looking forward to seeing what you create in 2009.
