I've changed the sign-up date and made the send-by date Cheryl's birthday so this can really be a celebration of her life.

I would like to host my last dotee doll swap in memory of our beloved friend, @CherylLaVon She loved these little dolls. This is for experienced swappers who may or may not be new to making art dolls.

You tube link on how-to make

Make her a face; embroidered with floss, press mold clay, needle felted. Just please... no marker/drawn on faces.

She'll need a stuffed cloth body.

She'll need some sort of hanger so she can be hung up & displayed like an ornament.

She'll need a tail. Usually it's a beaded one, a few inches in length.

Dotee body should be 2-6" in length.

Please name your doll and make (optional) birth certificate.

Sender's choice. You do not have to look at your partner's profile for likes/dislikes as you are left to your own creativity, but feel free to do so.

One doll to one partner.

Dotee themes include but are not limited to: seasonal/holiday, beach, domestic Goddess, haunted, mini me, stripes, polka dots, flapper, baby, animal, pajamas, apron, Native American/nationality, color themes, with a heart, quilted, hat, tea time, garden, goth, couch potato, fairy, cupcake, gypsy, pirate, mommy & baby, button, celestial, mermaid, belly dancer, lady of the night, favorite character. Some of these are taken from past themes.

Beginners welcome! No Newbies. No recent/unexplained no-sends. Thoughtful, reliable swappers who have the courtesy and time to follow thru only! No exceptions! I reserve the right to ban

Please be kind and include your swapbot username and the name of the swap so you can easily be rated properly. Non raters will be listed as such.

Flakers will be listed in the forums as such & unwelcome in future swaps. When I get flakers & swaplifters in my swaps it makes me mad because these are my friends. Flakers, no accounts and the like are not. Don't flake on my friends!

Please PM your partner if you are sending late. It's called common courtesy. I look forward to having you be a part of my swaps. If you have been flaked/not received and need an angel, please go rate your partner a 1- no send then come to me. I will no longer angel swaps that aren't rated appropriately in a timely manner. Thanks for your understanding.

Important points...

Come join the fun! Be a swap friend! Let's remember Cheryl! The idea is to have fun here! Do not criticize someone's work unless they specifically ask you for your opinion. This is for fun, only! HAVE FUN! Remember the life of Cheryl. She brought so much joy, humor & friendship to us! Thanks!

I often use pearls, silk, wool, feathers in my creations so if you are vegan and would prefer not to get these sorts of materials, or have a wool allergy, please indicate here in the comments section. My only requirements are-nothing that smells of perfume or cigarette smoke. Thanks! Laura

What a great idea. I have never made a dotee before but for this occasion I think it is time to start (and probably finish when you see my sewing efforts!!!).


MamaD 05/22/2009 #

I had debated doing this too, but couldn't quite do it! Thanks for doing this, on my watch-list!

Artistic 05/22/2009 #

On my watch list, too.

grannylove60 05/22/2009 #

I think this is a great idea:)) I have been wanting to get started making dotees, but just haven't taken the plunge yet. Got this on my watch for now. I'm going to try to get one made before partners are assigned. If it turns out good enough, then I'll definately join:))

pahasiga 05/26/2009 #

I have it on my watch-list, too, and right now I think I will definitely join (I just never join swaps earlier than about a week before sign-up date ;)).

Has cheryl passed away?

myrrhmaid 06/ 3/2009 #

Yes beary, we lost our Cheryl May 17th. Here is her ACS mosaic to remember page

myrrhmaid 06/17/2009 #

I have changed the dates so we can send before or by Cheryl's birthday Sept. 12th. If this doesn't now work out for you, my apologies. And because of inconsiderate swappers in my last go arounds, I have made some small print swap specs. Thanks for your understanding.

bobilani 06/26/2009 #

Oh good! This means I can sign back up now :) I had to drop earlier because of my upcoming surgery...I just didn't think I'd be able to complete it during the time span, but now I can! Thank you! :)

jannikinz 06/29/2009 #

Thankyou for setting up this swap. I'm happy so sign up in honour of Cheryl.

jannikinz 06/29/2009 #

oops, that was meant to say...I'm happy to sign up in honour of Cheryl.

maryb221 07/17/2009 #

I never knew Cheryl, but I like making dotees. Will be glad to join this swap.

jewelrydoll180 08/ 4/2009 #

I am signing up. Cheyl sent me the first Dotee I ever got. She is beautiful with a sunshine yellow face. I will treasure her always and remember how much Cheyl loved making Dotees.

Artistic 09/ 8/2009 #

A package is en route to my partner. Enjoy!

jannikinz 09/14/2009 #

I'm feeling rather dissapointed at the moment. There's been no communication from my partner that is sending to me. If the swap was going to be sent late, I would expect a pm saying just that. It's still not sent :(

bluecrayons 09/17/2009 #

im sorry i had a death. i will be sending asap.

myrrhmaid 09/27/2009 #

Thanks for letting us know.
