Welcome to my Buttons & Butterflies site!
My public face-up commissions are currently CLOSED.
Basic commission information is available to read in my main Menu. I often take long breaks from posting open public slots in order to accomplish other things, especially during the gardening seasons.
An FYI for members ... my site host sometimes has glitches in sending out member notifications. As a result, I might not be able to notify members ahead of time when new slots will available.
Check this Home page and Menu periodically to see if I have updated any commission news.
I will be working on getting my entire site updated through the upcoming winter of 2023-2024, as I know some of the pages have glitches in them. I formerly had Webs, which was transferred over to VistaPrint awhile back, and who is now partnered with Wix. It will take me time to get adjusted to the new editing process, so my apologies in advance for all of the missing photos on numerous pages. I also hope to carry though my eventual plans to open "The Butterflies Boutique" shop I have added back to my main Menu above. I will no longer be adding any tangible creations to sell in my Etsy shop, only the digital patterns that can be downloaded quickly.
My "Contact Me" button below has my new email if you wish to contact me privately. I am no longer using my previous gmail address.
While visiting my site, please feel free to browse through former gallery photos of previous work. In the "Ellowyne" menu category above you will find most of my elaborate sewing creations, along with my original poetry. Many of the vinyl fashion dolls represented were painted by my daughter Wendy during the years we collaborated together.
If you would like to view the artistry of my own advanced face-ups (painting with watercolor pencils and dry pastel chalk) on BJD's, there are two Gallery pages in chronological order under the "Face-ups" tab of my Menu bar above. I have recently begun to experiment on vinyl dolls also, but there are no posted photos yet.
Thank you for stopping by and your interest in my work ... hope you have a great day!
