  • Clothespin dolls (opinions needed!)

    I make clothespin dolls and have recently made a few witch ones that I'm thinking about putting up for sale on Etsy once they're all finished. Thought I'd put a couple photos up here to get some opinions before I set up an Etsy account and have no one buy them, LOL. Thanks in advance, you awesome crafters!

    Daphne

    Having a passion for gardens, Daphne uses a lot of herbs in her spell work. She is very nature oriented and tends to daydream a lot. She has an affinity for fairies and her favorite color is blue. Her home is usually on the messy side, but her herb garden has yet to see a weed. Daphne enjoys music of all kinds, her favorite being classic rock. She blasts her radio through her kitchen window while she gardens, so getting her attention can sometimes be difficult. Along with her herb garden, Daphne is also well known for growing beautiful purple roses.

    Emilia (still needs her hat and a besom)

    As a domestic witch, Emilia takes the phrase "Hearth and Home" very seriously. Her home is her sanctuary and she likes her things to be just so. She is very creative and loves to make all sorts of crafts. She loves cooking for other people and especially enjoys having people over for dinner. Emilia is a wonderful listener and friend. Her favorite color is purple (she adores amethyst) and she is happiest after the day's activities have wound down and she can curl up with a good romance novel.

    Jane (she still needs her cat)

    Jane is a great lover of cats and the color yellow. She dabbles mostly with spell candles and she loves Greek food. Her favorite mineral is amber. She hates reading but absolutely loves to shop. For anything. If its on sale she'll buy it, even if she doesn't need it. Being a pack rat as well, her home is full of clutter, as you can imagine! She's been known to keep cat treats on her, just in case she happens to find another stray. Jane owns seven cats already. Seven is also her lucky number.

      They are all beautiful I would buy one for sure. The faces are really good and the information on each of them is a really nice touch.
      Personally I would go ahead and put them up for sale.

        I agree they are all very good and quite creative. I would put them up and see how they do with the public.

          I also say put them up!!
          Clothespin crafting is another one of the dying arts.
          Someone needs to keep it alive and with your talent...heck why not?
          Dont let clothespin crafting die...not when you make such adorable ones!!!

          The few clothespin crafters still active, most, from what I have seen on the net, are not nearly as well done and thought out as yours!

                I think they are very sweet and I love the little blurbs about each one.

                    I am blessed to have a Hekate clothespin goddess from the very talented Kaltenia. She is awesome and perfect in every way.

                    If you get the opportunity to buy one of her dolls, I would recommend her without reservation.

                    Blessings
