Use Your Words!

Coming soon to an Etsy store near you.... decorative words!  These are just my prototypes.  The ones I sell will be stained, or painted.  I can do any word or phrase, so I will be offering customization.

When I first thought about all the wood projects I wanted to do, this was near the top of the list.  I have several of these signs in full size around my house.  I have one that says OFFICE and one that says DOLLS.  I am still drawn to them when I go to TJ Maxx.  I thought, "wouldn't it be cool to have these in 1/6 scale"?  Well here they are.  For my first time, I'm pretty happy with them.

  1. Hello from Spain: I really like these figures with words. My favorite is the word'' Barbie''. I also like the scale of the dolls. It is an elegant figure for any room in the house of Barbie. A great idea. You are very creative ... We keep in touch.

    1. Debbie - Thanks! I wasn't sure I would be able to do them small enough, but once I got going, I was happy to see how they turned out. Your doll has already requested a SEWING one.
