halloween swap doll and stuff about me

I was in vivonawhim's doll swap for the halloween Ball and this is who I made for
carla at carlafinley. I deided to use the hands feet and head made from ceramic. I found these at a thrift store in a box for $2. I have two more sets.
I had a set of short miniature pumpkin lights and she lights up when you plug here in.
Barbara at 123lavenderlollipoplane tagged me for random things about me.
I think there is not a lot left to know about me but I will go for it.

1.). my nickname john dubbed me with when we were first dating is
"squeek'.

Hi, Catie! You lil' traveler, you! I love the doll! Clever AND cute! And it was fun reading the 7 facts about you! Hey! I got a feather tattoo as a Christmas gift to myself when I was 53. Be safe, and REST a bit when you get home!

I love your doll - the lights are so perfectly placed. She is a stunner.
I'll see how random I can be - give me a day or two.
