Primitive Beehive Santa

This might be the last Santa of the year. I am so busy with Christmas and sewing for my grandies time is just running out. Anywho, I love this guy. He is so olde fashioned with his Annie ornie and I added a victorian style frame I found. You add your own picture to make Santa personally yours....

Annie and the frame can also hang on your tree.

Off to sew some more. I love Christmas....

I think I will have to make a New Year's resolution to post more often. Well Merry Holidays for now and blessings to your families.

Three on the Way!

I have three little cuties on the way. My little 3 year old grandbaby said Grammy, I love all your baby dolls. Enough for me, that's why I do it.

Prim Pumpkins

Hi! Ya'll and Prim Blessings,

Something a little different and just simply prim. Great to tuck in your prim cupboard or sit on a prim shelf. They turned out really great. I painted, stained and grungied them up good. Added a real tree branch to the top along with a rusty wire curl. These would also look great as part of your fall table decor or on your Thanksgiving table.

These are listed as a pair on ebay right now. You can bid on them at: janmariedollsandprims on eBay.

Also, I am going a little batty and they will be listed on eBay next. Check them out at: Bats on eBay.

I love these bats. They are made from muslin which has been painted, sanded and grungied up. Great bowl fillers or you could add some wire or string and hang them for Halloween.

Have a great day!

Ghost Annie

Smaller Version of a Real Sweet Doll

Here's what I have new. I made a smaller version of my favorite doll. She is about 15" tall with the cutest little face.

The little white french bonnet is an extra when I sell on eBay at the BIN price. It is all handmade by me using a pattern I made. I love this bonnet and when my girls were little they all had bonnets like this one. What a perfect way to frame a baby face. This bonnet fits a preemie.

This doll is about the size of a preemie baby and can wear preemie size diapers and clothing. Hours of fun for your little girls.

She is child friendly with safety joints and no sewn on parts to come off. I do not use hair on these dolls so they may be washed on gentlest cycle in a pillowcase with mild detergent. They can be reblushed after if desired.
If you are interested in purchasing a doll like this one please visit my website and click on her picture on the first page.

Getting Ready for Halloween!!!

Well, I think the countdown has begun for Halloween fans. I listed and sold a few items on eBay. Couple of pics below. I will be listing a few more along with some fall dolls and needfuls.I love these boots. They are based on a pattern from Moonchild Primitives with my own variations. I am sending my sister a set of these with a prim tag that says The Witch is In. I told her she can put it on her desk at work.

And of course Lil Jack the Pumpkin Man. He is so cute. I think I will make a few more of these too! and maybe give a few to some friends. He is based on a pattern from Willow Wind Primitives with my own touches added.

Y'all have a great evening.

Jan Marie Dolls and Prims is Here!

Well, I've started a new blog for all my primitive creations and I think I will probably combine all my blogs into just this one. It really is overwhelming sometimes trying to keep up with the posting, creating and crafting.

I have some things I think are really great that I posted to eBay. Some of these are sold, but I wanted to show them to you anyway. Love to hear any comments, suggestions or yes even criticism. Input is always appreciated.

I almost forgot, tomorrow is mine and dear hubbies anniversary. 35 years and going strong. I feel like I have known him all my life. I met him when I was 13 and went home and told mom I had met the boy I was going to marry. Sounds corny but true. Love him as much now if not more than I did then.
