Brownies, Anyone?

Who could resist this darling little Cookie Seller? Turn her away from your door? I don't think so! (Oh, I'm sorry Cyndy! I just couldn't wait to reveal her!)

Knee socks and a skort. (Didn't we used to call them culottes?) ;o)

Attention to detail makes all the difference, yes?
A brand new sash- just waiting for all the fabulous badges she'll earn. What a great gift for a girl new to the scouting scene. When she gets her embroidery badge, she can add to her own sash!

Isn't she adorable? A TygrLilies design collaboration with CousinLily Cynthia Roland for her daughter Jessica. As that old commercial says, "Special Orders don't upset us!" What will your Lilly look like? Come into the TygrLilies Boutique today!

From left to right, Yvette Reinbolt (Youngest SisterLily) Bertha Smith (Next oldest SisterLily), Cynthia Roland (Cousin Lily) and Becky Washington (Texas SisterLily) and seated, is me, Angelica Bays (TygrLily).

Melancholy Mermaid

It is with a bit of wistfulness and nostalgia that we at TygrLilies both introduce you and say Farewell to this beautiful little mermaid. Isn't she lovely? Adios, Sirenita!
I have really enjoyed making dolls like this for the past year. Thank you Anapaula Rimoli! I gave them away as gifts to my nieces and to relatives. I even gave one to my Grandmother! Really, it was so cute, with a bright red tail and curly white hair, I'll have to post a pic of it soon. But, I digress. Every time I've done one of these I've changed this and added that until I've modified it as much as I possibly can. I have so many ideas that I'm anxious to try that I feel it is now time to move on and start all over with a brand new design. Au revoir, little mermaid!

"...What? You mean I can't have her?! But that's not fair!"
Ah, grasshopper, do not fret! A brand new Darling of the Deep of my own design will be arriving shortly. You see, the great thing about designing is that there are always new things to learn, new techniques to try and new combinations to imagine!

And don't forget, there's always YOUR creativity to add into the mix! Does your dream doll have short hair? Pink hair? Wings?? Let's design something together!

Go Saddleback Warriors!!

"Yay Team! Go, Fight, Win!"
Designed for Saddleback Valley Christian High Warriors Cheerleading Squad"Yay Team! Go, Fight, Win!"
My best friend and I were on Varsity Cheerleading squads back in High School... ahh, those were the days. Football games, the crisp, autumn night air, the lights-the excitement! The whole school coming out to cheer on your sports team, what fun. Sports are a great way to develop a sense of community and team spirit. Cheerleaders are the encouragers on the field, "That's ok, that's allright! Stay in there and Fight,Fight,Fight!" We all need a little Cheerleader in our lives.

Beach Baby Becky from Coronado Island

This darling doll was designed for my sister Becky's 40th Birthday.

Becky lives in Texas now- did you know they have beaches there? ;o) Sunglasses and flipflops, shorts and a halter- all she needs now is some southern sweet tea!
