Here's my doll that I have been working on FOREVER. To be honest, the reason that she took forever was because she was a "to-go" project. I kept her in the car and worked on her when I was away from home...never AT home. She started out as a Snow Queen or Ice Princess, but everyone kept asking me if she was an astronaut, so I decided to call her my "Space Cadet." The crown was my daughter, Rachel's, idea. I made a "Crystal Burst" ring from Laura McCabe's book just so I could be able to say that I could...lol...but knew I would never wear it because I would end up knocking the embellishment off. And I hate for things to go to waste and I didn't want to undo it...so, my Space Cadet has a crown. I really enjoyed creating her, but it will be a LONGGG time before I do another one!

This is a pattern by Glenda Payseno. You can find that and other patterns by Glenda at http://stores.lulu.com/GlendasBooks
I copied a friend's (again...lol) WITH her permission. This is a version of Glenda's necklace that was created by a friend, Dianne. She calls her version "Moonlit Dusk."
I loved Dianne's colors so much that I had to have the same colors, and it wears very nicely and looks so pretty that I'm going to make a bracelet to match! :)
