Yea! My auction dress and the paper cut portrait both sold at the auction. I don't know how much they brought, but they sold!!! Whew!!! I was really scared that they wouldn't. I saw a lady carrying out the dress. I spoke to her, and she told me she was buying it for her grand daughter. I also spoke to the lady who bought the paper cut portrait (sherensnitte) and found out she wants one of her grand son. She'll bring me his picture. I talked to a man who is from Germany, and he told me that sheren means scissors and that snitte means cut. So, that is what this wonderful word means. Doesn't snitte sound like the sound that scissors make when they cut?
In case you don't know what I'm talking about, here are pictures of the dress and an example of the portrait. This one is my grand daughter. I don't think I've posted this one before.
As you can see the picture is flipped. I'm not wild about how the lips came out. There was a shiny spot on her lower lip that I tried to capture, but it just looks a little strange, so this one will be done over. Actually, I think I want to do all of them over, now that I've had more practice. I believe I'll make them a little smaller. Gwen suggested that I hang them at my house rather than give them to my girls. I may just do that, in my hallway!
This little princess went to a daddy/daughter princess dance last night. She got to meet Belle, Cinderella, and other real life princesses!!! She wore the dress that I made her for Christmas. Boy, does that make Granmomma feel good!!!
