Bye-Bye Blog Tour. Night-Night Dolly...

Wow!  Thank you to all who participated in the blog tour. Thanks to every wonderful friend who wrote a blog post and to each of you, dear friends, who left kind comments & sent lovely emails! 

Now, for those of you who are feeling a bit tired of seeing so many posts about peg dolls, here is a message:  Today we finally conclude our All-Peg-Dolls-All-The-Time portion of this broadcast.  We will now return to our usual programming.

In fact, things may be bit quiet around here for a while.  You see, I will be knuckling down and getting to work on a second craft book.  There will be some peg dolls, but not entirely peg dolls -- it will include lots of other stuff, too (oh, my!)

Not to fear -- I won't be disappearing entirely.  It will just be... quieter.  But please feel free to drop me a note any time just to say hello.  I am always happy to hear from you!

See you soon --

p.s. You can find a PDF for all the peg doll furniture by Marilyn Scott-Waters here.

  1. Oh, wow!! Another book! I must get on ordering Making Peg Dolls...I see it's sold out on amazon.ca, at least the last time I checked! I have a friend who saw my love bugs on fb and was just so fascinated...had never seen peg dolls before. I'm thinking I need to put together a kit for her and her children...just because! Because everyone should have peg dolls. I'm kind of getting addicted myself. My kids LOVED the love bugs and I laughed at all the games they played...angels, fairies, bugs, all falling in and out of love with each other. Wonderful!!

    Can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve!

  5. I don't think I could ever tire of seeing your sweet peg dolls. I have had my copy of your book for about a week and a half and I look at it daily !
    Can you reccimend a source for the large angel shape dolls mentioned in the book. I looked at one place online and to order about 30 dolls was going to cost $100 in shipping to Australia!

    1. Ah, 30 of those larger size dolls would be quite heavy and would require a large box. But if you calculate out the price of each doll with the shipping, it should cost you approx. $4 US per doll, which is not bad, considering the dolls are very nice as toddler toys. You can get the dolls from this shop on etsy, but the cost per doll would be higher and I'm not sure (given the size and weight of the parcel) that she could charge you less on shipping http://www.etsy.com/listing/112592335/peg-doll-3-12-wood-unfinished-set-of-10?ref=sr_gallery_32&ga_search_query=wooden+peg+dolls+unfinished&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_ref=auto4&ga_search_type=supplies

      I'm so glad to hear you are enjoying the book!!

      Best wishes & cheers :-)
