The Hawaiian dolls

Here they are! These are the two little dolls I made as a custom order for a lady on Etsy. She is having a party for her mom and dad, and these dolls are going to be taken to a cake designer to have the cake designed around them. (I know I've posted that before, but it's too exciting for me to not say it again!) She said her mom has already recieved them and loved them!
It sure was nerve wracking making these little dolls... knowing they were being made for someone. I kept having problems, the skirt kept breaking, his lai kept breaking... I had a multitude of problems! I was so glad when they were finished! It makes me even more happier to know that she really loved them! Hopefully now, I'll get some more orders in my shop!!! I need to figure out a way to promote it better... How do I get buisness to my shop without spending money on advertising? If anyone has any ideas... I'm open to any suggestions!

I'm so excited for you!! That's too cool!! Have you thought about starting a group on Facebook and linking people to your Etsy page??

I love them!

Since you do have a facebook page now, you should link it randomly in your status, just to remind people.

Have you thought about doing some of famous people? Like Lucy, Marilyn or Elvis?

You could have a giveaway. There is a website called Money Saving Mom that has a big giveaway linking usually on Tuesdays. There is a link on my blog to her. You could go check it out and see if it is something you are interested in. That would get more traffic to your blog and people would see what you make.

Those are so pretty. I love them. I like the colors and especially the hair.

Well, definitely don't put signs up in your neighborhood!
