Doll mail and some unexpected shopping :D

After completely underestimating how hard it is for me to sew clothes for Finley, I made a couple of orders on Etsy and Ebay for some basic doll clothes. My order from MissFreyaJ’s Etsy shop arrived in the mail today! I ordered two simple dresses with cute patterned fabric for Finley. They have velcro on the back, and they’re finished very well. I’m very happy with my purchase, so much so I had to drop everything and get Finley into her new dress.

I need more socks and stockings for her :-/. The hat I actually crocheted yesterday, and I’m quite happy with how it came out! The cotton yarn that I used for the hat is the same color as her pull ring, which I found pretty cute. The ears are poseable, as I used some wire to make them stiff and adjustable. :3 It’s raining outside today, but I can’t wait to go out to a nearby park and take some photos of Finley surrounded by nature. Whenever I try taking photos at home, this is what happens:

My cat being a jerk. I still love her though.

Since I have the day off today, I decided to walk about 4 miles to my vet’s office to pick up a prescription. On the way, there’s a Michaels, so I made an impromptu shopping trip :3. Michaels always has sales and coupons, so I actually left the store with more than I thought I would buy…

I found a miniature camera for scrapbooking. It’s kind of heavy, but it looked like it would be really cute as a prop. I bought the little picture frames for the same reason. The little bird makeup bags were only 3 dollars all together, so why not? And as for the beads, I am planning on decorating Finley’s pull string with them. I still need a cute pull charm,  but I’m having a hard time finding something that would be perfect. I was thinking of something along the lines of a white cat, or a charm of Finn, Fionna, Cake, or Jake from Adventure Time. A delicate looking sword would work too, or maybe even a shield with a coat of arms that has cats on it (can you tell I really love cats?).

Before I leave, just one more photo of Finley for good measure!
