Angel Dotee


Angel Dotee, originally uploaded by laurienuske.

Help! I'm addicted! It all started with Artist Trading Cards, on Swap-Bot. While there, I discovered these little dotee dolls that were being traded, and decided to try one. Well, I'm out of control!! I have made several, have sent them to places all over the world, this one to England, have received them from all over the world, and have signed up for 20 more swaps (only because there is a 20 swap limit at a time..) with themes ranging from Angels to bugs! So what's a dotee? They were created by a woman named, what else, Dot. They are to be 4-6" in height, and must have a hanger and a "tail". You can look at my Flickr pictures for more of ones I've made, and received. But getting me out of my craft room? Good luck! These little gems have me held hostage!! I even started my own dotee group, Dote on Dotee's! Next I think it will have to be Dotee's Anonymous!

That's so cute, Laurie. You sound like you're out of control. Oh, well it could be a lot worse - couldn't it?

She's adorable! Reminds me of some angels my husband's aunt has made...some with pinecone bodies, some with clothespin bodies, some with stuffed fabric bodies, etc. scraps of fabrics, laces, trims, ribbons, etc. Most are angels, some are Scottish or Colonial America folks. I have several on my Christmas tree.

I love the Mimi Two you made with the teacup tail. Now this is something new, but looks like fun. The most important thing is to have fun and it sounds like you are doing just that.
