Two New Sisters....

"Sister Phyllis Driller", the dentist, with her drill and tooth chart....


and "Sister Amelia Love"....the chef extraordinaire...complete with chef's hat and menu board. (keep saying the name....you will "get" it....)
Both currently available in my "Etsy" shop
I am currently working to create a nun who does yoga....a special order, and this one does have a special personal name. The request was for one doing a pose, but sadly, the poor "sister" did not have much flexibility (despite her hours of yoga) and now, will sport a yoga position chart, and carry her yoga mat. When this is added to the "sisterhood", I will need a "punny" name, relating to yoga. "Game on"!....free "sister" of your choice to the person who sends me the name that I use!

  2. Wow! You really know a lot about yoga! Thanks for all of the suggestions! They are "in the running"...although would require the explanation to "non" yoga people. Keep thinking...you are allowed as many entries as you would like! Looking for a generic type for the general crowd as well, but there is no reason that the yoga sister can't have two names, when it comes down to the finals! :)

  6. Thanks, Sue! I think that "Maddy Tate" will likely be it! I have been laughing about that one while I finish up the proto-type! Keep warm! :)

  7. I love "Amelia Love". She's absolutely brilliant and such a great play on words. With so many foodies in the world, Amelia will be a very popular sister no doubt.
    Have a great weekend Linda.

  10. There were so many beautiful things at the show in that competition...I knew that this would just be a novelty entry...but maybe it dragged a few people to the booth! Thanks for pointing her out to your friends! (she did make it to a "shot" on "Breakfast Television" background....:)
