Return of the Woodlees!

It's been a while.

All day yesterday was spent making pieces and parts to create Woodlees!

I have the parts to make 80 Woodlees!

Eve and Maggie have already volunteered to help.

Which is good, since 80 is a lot and I think I'll be needing their help. :)

I honestly thought the Woodlees were retired for good, and then I got fascinated with OTHER wooden dolls.

Clothespin dolls.

I have a project going, to make 365 of them. That's over here - 365 Clothespin Dolls - A Pin A Day. I have learned so much from doing these little dolls, and they are so fun.

But I missed the posability and bendy nature of the Woodlees. So... we'll have to see what some clothespin influence does to the Woodlees. I think it's going to be amazing!

Thanks for stopping by and reading! I can't wait to show you how it's going!

Eve At the "Little Show" & Something About a Doll Show

Last weekend, Eve attended the Denver Museum of Dollhouses Miniatures and Toys' "Little Show". She helped at the Norm's Dollhouse booth.

We brought lots of wonderful, handmade things, because the "Little Show" is all about handmade items. That makes it extra cool.

Eve brought a long a bunch of Woodlees, looking for homes.

There were some brand new things that Norm's hadn't shown anyone before too. Like comic books that are really, real, printed comic books!

And a "Rocky Mountain Faceplant" which Eve found a little creepier than the Rocky Mountain Eyerises.

And hermit crabs!

Teeny tiny hermit crabs. I think Eve would like to keep some as pets now.

Up next, Eve will be attending the 37th Annual Table Mountain Treasures Doll club 2014 Doll Show & Sale!

Norm's was invited to bring miniatures, and Eve seems to think this is a good opportunity to bring some Woodlees and maybe find them homes. I told her I'm not sure it's that kind of doll show (I think they're more porcelain and vintage types) but you never know!

So Eve is getting all set to do the next show. She says she may even have some new friends to bring along too. I guess we'll see!

Thank you so much to everyone who came out and met the Woodlees at the "Little Show" and stopped by to say "hello"! It was so great to see all of you! We're hoping to see you at the doll show too!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day from all of us in Woodlee Junction!

Valentine's is a neat day. And we like it and all. But tomorrow is a special occasion for TWO reasons!

1) It's half price chocolate day!

2) A bunch of Woodlees will be looking for new homes at the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys' Annual "Little Show". Come by, say "hi" and see if maybe you need a little Woodlee in your life!

See you there!

Happy New Year!!!

Hi Everyone! Wendy here.

I have been a bad, bad dolly companion. I let myself get busy and have really neglected the Woodlees.

But no more! Yaay Woodlees!

Chief Woodlee, Eve has joined a 52 Week Photo Challenge on Facebook (link is here if you do Facebook - 52 Week Toy/Pixie/Dolls Photo Challenge). But she'll be posting her photos here too, just in case you don't do Facebook.

This is the list she'll be working from (click to make it bigger and readable), if you're interesting it doing it on your blog too! The challenges start each Wednesday and end on the following Wednesday. So the first one, Self Portrait, starts today and ends on January 8th.

She also recently attended a meeting with Hitty Rosabelle Kleider, Hitty Berine Simmons, and Miranda Ixie about making things to sell at the upcoming "Little Show" put on by the Denver Museum of Miniatures Dolls and Toys.

Eve is a very busy Woodlee all of a sudden. 

We'll post all of her adventures here. One of my resolutions this year is to get this blog up and running again. Wish me luck, though it shouldn't be too hard: Woodlees are pretty active little dolls. I expect to have plenty to tell you about. :)

Happy New Year from the Woodlees and the entire Wylde Kingdom!

Merry Christmas, from Woodlee Junction!!!

The Woodless have been missing for a while. We didn't really know where they'd gone.

Turns out, they got this awesome job with the North Pole as "Kindness Elves" which sounds pretty awesome.

They're back now. Little by little they're returning, and it sounds like they had a super great time helping kids be kinder for Christmas.

But it also sounds like they're glad to be home.

Welcome home, little Woodlees! Merry Christmas!!!

Woodlee Computer Expert, Maggie - by Wendy

Things have been just crazy in Woodlee Junction.

A whole heap of Woodlees went to Norm's to find homes on Wednesday. 20 little Woodlees looking for homes.

And now, just three days later, there are only SEVEN still looking for homes!


So things have been super busy since June 1st, when the Woodlees first became available for adoption from Norm's Dollhouse.

Things got missed. Important things, like the arrival of the Woodlees in Hittyville.

Wendy doll and SuzieQ sent us more pictures, but everyone was too busy to upload them. 

It was just getting ridiculous, and something had to be done.

So we hired Maggie, our new internet genius and public relations specialist.

She mostly seems to hang out at Norm's and works on her trusty laptop. She said it's quieter there, and Norm's has good wifi.

Welcome, Maggie! And thanks for coming! I feel more organized already!

Pictures From a Woodlee Friend - by Wendy

Wendy here. Hello!

I first started making Woodlees because a lady name Julianne came into Norm's with some little wooden, bendy dolls she ordered online, and I thought they were sorta cute.  They were mass produced, and missing "something" and that's what lead me to make my own.

Julianne adopted the first Woodlee ever to leave Woodlee Junction. She told me her little red headed Woodlee's name is Wendy.:)

She sent me pictures of Wendy Woodlee hanging out with her friend SuzieQ at Susie's house.

Wendy is happy to hang out with SuzieQ while she's waiting for her family to arrive.

Wendy's family will probably get their own house once they're all there. But SuzieQ doesn't seem to mind having a roommate until then.

Julianne says the pair do everything together and are the best of friends.

They can frequently be found just hanging out, enjoying the Summer.

And here they are visiting with SusieQ's grandparents. Wendy is just like one of the family. :)

Julianne doesn't have a blog or Flickr for her dolls and the gorgeous dollhouses she build (though I'm trying to talk her into one), so she let me post her pictures here. :)

It makes me so happy to see one of the Woodlees out and about and having a great life with a new Companion. If you've got a Woodlee, but don't have a blog or a way to share pictures, email them to me (wendy at normsdollhouse dot com) with details about your doll and their new life and I'll post them here!

Hope you're having a wonderful Monday! Thanks for reading my blog!  :)
