Christmas Cookies!!!!!

Does it make you hungry for Christmas Cookies? That's my oldest daughter Misty & my youngest grandaughter Randi frosting and decorating cookies.

It's always such a mess, but such a YUMMY mess!

Don't they look yummy? We made TONS of Christmas candies too,
but I had so much chocolate on my fingers I couldn't operate the camera.


I pray that all of you have a warm & wonderful Christmas with Blessings galore from our Lord God.

Busy, busy, busy!!!

I am so proud to share with you all this piece. Randy (my hubby) really outdid himself on this one. He worked so hard. If you can't tell, it's Santa riding a Goose, and there's a little Elf hanging on to the back. So much detail!!
It's listed on eBay right now if you want to take a closer look.
God Bless you all!

Wanna See Something Cute????

I wanted to make more CRITTERS! I told you all that I LOVE making CRITTERS! Well... this is Sugar Giraffe & Maggie Monkey

They're little... Let's see, I think that Maggie is only about 7 1/2 inches tall, and Sugar is about 8 1/2 inches. Aren't they darling??? I have just fallen in love w/ them both! Maggie Monkey has wired arms, legs, and tail, so she can hang in a million different ways!! Sugar has button-jointed legs, so she stands really nicely and can be posed. Shhhh.... don't tell Maggie, but I think Sugar is my favorite.

They each come with a dollie, one of my extreme prim dolls. I was going to list them tomorrow for sale on eBay, but my camera is acting up... so I wasn't able to get all the photos I needed. Doggone it! I've also got a dollie w/ a HIPPO! I sure hope my camera gets better! I'm praying for it, because I certainly cannot afford a new one!

Thanks for looking and God Bless you all,

Don't you just LOVE this painting?

For as long as I can remember, I have loved this painting. I know that Jesus probably didn't really look like that, but there's just a comfort that I feel when I see that portrait. Do you ever wonder what He looked like? I can't wait to see Him!
I think about my sweet Daddy. I miss him, and we will all miss him again at Thanksgiving and Christmas... but then I remind myself... Daddy's spending the holidays with Jesus!
Please say a prayer for my dear friend Cora. She needs our prayers. She is in the midst of a storm, a physical, emotional, and spiritual storm. God knows what she needs, who she is, etc. Just please, if you're a praying person.. pray for Cora?
Hope you're all well, and safe, and happy, and blessed.

~*~RaGgeDy DrEaMs~*~

Yep... I just LOVE Raggedies!

Do You??? I think they are SO SWEET!
I decided to try my hand at some smaller ones. I used to make larger ones (24 - 26" tall) that I would put real baby clothes and shoes on.

These petite gals are only about 12 inches tall! They're listed on eBay right now. I have two more in the works too.

God is soooo good!

Looking for a BARGAIN???

Hi Everyone!
Just thought I'd let you all know that I have three dolls ON SALE, listed on eBay right now. They all have an opening bid of $7.77. Yep... that's...
I'm hoping, of course that I will get more than that for them, but we will see!
All you have to do is click on the little drawing over there <------- at the top of the left margin of my blog to see all of my eBay listings.
Hope to see some of you there!
God Bless,

Penny Polar Bear has arrived!

I promised you that I'd share some pics w/ you all of my Polar Bear. This is Mrs. Santa and Penny Polar Bear. They are listed on eBay right now! What fun to make them! I know it's hard to see the details in these small pictures, but there's a lot of work in them! I hope they sell for good money. It's very disheartening when you work hard on something and then it goes for measly pay! I have had that happen so many times.

My hubby has made a Santa w/ a Polar Bear that is just adorable...actually much better than mine. He is so very talented.

I also listed a dollie w/ a Gingerbread Man Ornie, an Iddie Biddie Christmas Kittie w/ a Wrapped Christmas gift in one hand, and an Ornie that says, "Jesus Is The Greatest Gift".

Oh.. and I made a doll who holds a baby, and a tiny doll quilt I made! Here's a pic of her...
Thanks for looking at my new babies. God Bless, Penny

Okay, I love to make CRITTERS!!!

Yep, it's official. I'm going critter creating crazy!!! LOL
I've made a YORKIE doggie, several DACHSHUNDS, lots of Cats, Rabbits, Sheep, Crows, and
Frogs. Well... now I'm working on a POLAR BEAR. She is actually finished. I'm selling her on eBay (listing will probably start Thursday evening). She comes with a doll that has a round head, separate stitched on eyelids, painted eyes, and a darling Christmas-y outfit. She kind of reminds me of Mrs. Santa.

I'll post pics of the new ones asap.
Thanks for looking and God Bless you all,

Halloween Ghouls

I thought I'd share a photo of my Granddaughters Randi & Jordan in their Halloween Costumes.

Randi's nickname is "Tink". She's a little tiny thing, always has been and "Tink" was the perfect nickname for her. She HATES IT! She said, " I will NOT be Tinkerbell this year for Halloween. I was Tinkerbell for THREE YEARS and I won't do it again!".... LOL.... and all this with her hand on her hip and her little 'attitude' sway of the head. She's a little Goth girl. She loves anything scary, gory, and gruesome. So... at the ripe old age of 9, she was a Zombie!

Jordan just wanted something fun. At first we were going to use a clear plastic dropcloth and put holes in it for her legs to go through. Then you blow up lots of purple balloons and bring the dropcloth up, gathering it to look like a 'bag'. Bag of purple grapes! Wouldn't that have been cute??? Oh, but NO.... she had to be gruesome too. So Grammy (that's me...LOL) had to dig out some black satin I had stuffed away and make her a Corpse Bride costume. We had purple and black tulle for the veil. Absolutely gory and gross!

They had a ball though...I guess that's the main thing. No matter how much Grammy wants them to stay little, pink, sweet princesses... things change.

Have a lovely!!!

I felt very priviledged to get out and vote today. We ARE priviledged to live in this country, to have the choices and freedoms we have. We are blessed.

Also, I've listed a dollie w/ a Dachshund! OH.. and also a Chihuahua... but she sold IMMEDIATELY!!! PTL!

Thanks for looking today. God Bless you all! Penny

All kinds of Cats and Sweet lil' girls have just poured out of my imagination this week.

Such a SWEET Lady!

You know... every now and then someone commits a random act of kindness and it just MAKES YOUR DAY! Well, two days ago my day was made by a lovely customer of mine named Julie.
She bought a set of two dolls and a Scottie from me not long ago. Bless her heart...she took photos of them and sent them to me! Isn't that just the SWEETEST thing?
She gave them a place of honor in her home too... on a chair that had belonged to her Dad when he was a child. Well... here's what she said.
I just simply love this set of dolls!!! They happen to match so very well with the antique chair and chair pad that was my Father's when he was a child in the 1940's....The dresses on your dolls and the fabric on the chair pad are so similar in color....Wow! These are so super cute! Thank you for the little potpourri bad too! My entire house smells so good!! I will treasure these! So unique for my collection of prim items!! Julie
I'll tell ya... she made me so happy. I just had to share with you all.
Oh.. another PRAISE THE LORD! My dolls and my Hubby's dolls are going to be in a local shop for sale now! I'm so excited about it! We have to have 30 of them made to deliver by next Tuesday. Needless to say, I'm suuuuuuper busy, but I just had to share that. I'll tell you more about it after Tuesday.
Thanks for joining me today.
God Bless You All,

What my Sweet Hubby Has Been Up To!

Believe it or not, he is MAKING DOLLS! The man is amazing. He has sold quite a few through eBay and has made many more. He started by helping me to complete preliminary work on dolls, then just learned the rest.
Aigar the Elf is already sold. Clem and his friend Cleo are sold too.
Both Cats, & the Prarie Doll sold too!!! He still has the Father Christmas, and he is almost finished with the most adorable set of Snowpeople you've ever seen. I'm just so proud!
Thanks for looking at all his creations. Blessings!

I'm a LOUSY blogger!!!

Yes... it's true. I must face this about myself. I'm TERRIBLE at blogging. Actually, maybe I'm just BUSY!
Production has tripled at Miss Pootsie's Primitives! That's good, but it certainly cuts in to my blogging time and other fun things.
Lately I've been working on an order of dolls for a wonderful little Prim Shop that's just opened in Vermont. I'm so proud. I'll be posting more about it soon if you're interested.
Here's a new little dollie I named Mamie. She has a round head, separate, stitched on eyelids, painted eyes, and a friend Crow named Gemma. She's on eBay right now and the auction ends tonight.

Well, I must go for now. So much to do, so little time.


God Bless You All!!!

More DOLLS!!!

(or... Teenie Tiny Iddie Biddies)

Okay, I've been busy! I guess that's why I haven't posted much. Just wanted to share these babies with you all. The tallest one has been only 4 3/4 inches! They are usually 4 1/4 to 4 1/2 inches. I mean it...these darlings are TINY!!!

The TTIB's originated with the desire to make an exact (or as close as possible) copy in miniature of some of my dolls. I've made several sets now of the big dolls w/ the TTIB's tucked into their little wiry arms. So cute! Here's a photo of one set.


I hope some of my blogger friends will drop by and take a look. I haven't even shared these on most of the eBay groups I belong to, which is usually what I do immediately! I've only posted the news on GTPF. I just haven't had ANY TIME to do anything but work! I'm blessed with work though. I love what I do and praise God for my life!
Hope everyone has a lovely day. Here's a thought to share w/ you today.
"The Lord uses the hardships of your life to build in you pillars of character that can sustain the annointing that will rest on them."
God will USE US if we LET HIM!

Secretly you know I'm hoping that I WIN.. heehee.

Have a beautiful evening.... God is SO GOOD!

Iddie Biddies Always Have Something To Say!

Hello! Hope the world is treating you well today. It's been stormy here in Kansas again today. We've had our share of severe weather this year, but nothing so bad as what some other areas of our country are experiencing. Floods, Tornadoes... it's frightening.

God is our fortress in the storm. We can cling to His strength.

I've started a new line of dolls that I'm calling "Iddie Biddies". They're tiny, 8 to 9 inches tall. Every one has a little Card Ornie that says something. Here's a few examples of the sayings, or scriptures they hold.

-"Because I said so, that's why!"
-"Trust in the Lord With All Your Heart"
-"You will always be my baby."
-"I Love You So Much"

They're really fun. I've sold one to a lovely customer of mine named Celeste. She's the one who asked me if I would consider making a tiny doll. Her request just got my creative impulses moving!

Aren't they sweet? I'm listing two of them Sunday, and more to come.

Hope you all have gentle, sweet dreams!
