Pumpkinhaus Earthlies Doll

Each little Earthlie is one of a kind. These have been very popular in my shop since I first added them! I absolutely love making dolls, I consider myself a dollmaker first and foremost! This one is my newest addition, and also one of the first dolls to have the plastic eyes. I chose a beautiful batik print fabric for her little dress.

The original Earthlie Plaything will soon be residing in her new home in Alberta, Canada! I hope her little toes get some warm lovin' this winter!! I feel I should have sent her a pair of little slippers!!
This one was super fun for me to make! I had an alchemy request from a fellow Cafemom Etsymom teammate for a little Earthlie with wings. She will be the guardian for her little ones new bedroom soon! I will definitley be adding more wings to my doll wardrobe in the future, I am very happy with the way they turned out, and they recieved Rowan's seal of approval!
My little Cael loves these dollies so much, I make sure he kisses each one before they are packaged up and sent off to thier new homes. Hmmm... I wonder what he will be getting for christmas this year!

Death by Chocolate 8 chocolate cookie recipes plus bonus

I was involved in a trade with a fellow cafemom etsian levityinbrevity recently. Part of the trade was a listing for 8 chocolate cookie recipes and a bonus recipe for carrot cake. rowan and I decided to start at the top of the list with the Chocolate Crinkles. I must say, at first I was hesitant a little bit at the "prepare dough ahead of time, and chill for two hours" part, but it turned out to be the easiest recipe, and I really appreciated the fact that I was able to store the dough ahead of time in the end. Rowan helped me roll the cooled dough in powdered sugar (all the while licking her fingers and hands in sheer delight!), and place them on the cookie sheet. This is a very kid friendly recipe!
These cookies came out actually looking like the picture in her listing. They were so beautiful as I stacked them carefully as they came out of the oven, Rowan ooooooed and aaahhhhhed each time I lay a cookie on the plate!
Now, for the results.....
Rowan: They kinda taste like brownies.... brownies with powdered sugar! I like them a lot, but they could be a little dark chocolatier. The are definitely wow cookies, and I would give them to grandma! Joe: Hmmmm... good. Kinda like holiday Italian Wedding cookies/ brownies. I don't like either of those, but I like these instead. They go very good with whisky. Definitely worth buying the recipe, I would give these as a gift!
MiaRae: Tastes like a brownie. Mmmmmm, good warm. Very good for the munchies! I would give these as a gift easily, but I would put a macadamia nut in the middle!
Dani: Very good! I love all of the powdered sugar, and think they look quite lovely. I am surprised at how mellow they taste! I thought they would be a bit more chocolaty. But that is not a complaint. Good with the bean!

Thanks LevityinBrevity!! I hope your daughter loves her Booby Hat!!!
Stay tuned next week for: Whoopie Pie!
