New items for the 18 inch doll boutique

Wow, cannot believe I have not posted in such a long time.  Upon returning back to work in August, I feel as though my life has turned upside down.  Work is very busy with promotion from Associate Professor to an Assistant Professor - huge note book I have to put together to submit and then all the busy work our nursing programs re-accreditation, not to mention the two overload teaching jobs/task I have taken on top of my regular teaching load.  I was appointed the program coordinator over the med-surge course.  I feel like I have no time for my hobbies.    I am so exhausted we I get home now.  I am sure some of you are going through the same thing.  But there is hope - there is light at the end of this tunnel.  LOL.  I have been sewing some and selling a lot locally and I have been selling a lot on Etsy too. My doll backpacks have been a huge hit. 

My husband made me some school desk and I have been using those for my photo shoots.  I have been making some school doll supplies too - pencils and folders.

Here are some photos of what I have been making since my last post and selling.

This is a very popular ruffled outfit - I have request to make more.  The "Paris theme" outfit.
