Crazed in the Craftroom

As most of you Moms - Artists know, things have a way of getting in the way of creative time. Last week the universe shifted, and I got absolutely nothing done in the craft room! Job changes, wedding plans, basketball tournaments, and the mountain of laundry. No I don't mean a 'big' pile of laundry, I mean a 'mountain'.......The laundry chute goes down 3 floors....it was full, and all the kids hampers were over flowing. I was feeling most melodramatic.....oh 'swoon' :)
 So I got this bright idea , inspiration maybe? Melodramatic....hmm....the light bulb sputtered and came to life. The Melodrama Sisters. a new series of dolls. I did a ghostly doll back before Christmas and she sold within 3 days of getting her listed. So why didn't I make more? Because sometimes someone has to slap me upside the head with a 2x4 before I get a clue that maybe I should make some more.
Here's the beginnings of the first three dolls.

This is Maisy, unfortunately the operation wasn't successful.

Millie quickly found out she was allergic to bees.

I'm still working on Minerva, I hope to have her done Wednesday. I'm not sure what her demise was yet...something melodramatic though. Any ideas?

Lyme disease from a tick bite maybe? Allergies to cat/dog hair? Dust? I don't know but what I do know is that they are seriously cute.
