Bernie Troll Doll

bernietrollcollage

Whether you love or hate the man, you just gotta love the doll!  At least you can say the doll has his hands in his OWN pockets!  LOL.  This prototype features suit jacket lapels, aerodynamic styling, plus the iconic windblown hair.  He can be hung from your rearview mirror and you can smooth down his crazy hair with your fingers.  Orrrrr, if you are from the other camp, give him a roll him between your hands to mess up his hair and have a laugh.  .

Each doll is $35USD and ships for $5 in the U.S.  Each is uniquely hand made.  If you want more than one, please contact me using the contact button.

Trump Troll Doll

Whether you love or hate the man, you just gotta love the doll!  At least you can say the doll has his hands in his OWN pockets!  LOL.  This prototype features suit jacket lapels, aerodynamic styling, plus the iconic combover.  He can be hung from your rearview mirror and you can finger-style his luscious hair.  Orrrrr, if you are from the other camp, give him a good shake or roll him between your hands to mess up his hair and have a laugh.  If I receive enough orders, I will make similar but unique (handmade is always unique) dolls to fill orders.  I’m hoping to replace his tie material with a solid color and tone down the orange in the hair just a tad.  I’m hoping for at least ten orders which I will ship at the beginning of June.

Pre-order here and see his hair in action below.

Purple Rain

Make a purple raindrop in memory of Prince.

Make a purple raindrop in memory of Prince.

When a beloved musical artist passes away, it instantly reminds you of all the good memories you had enjoying their talents. I was saddened to hear of Prince’s passing so in his memory, I crocheted some of my free drip patterns in purple. Now you can make Purple Rain too. Just visit my free pattern for the Phoney Drip.

Facebook’s Reactions

Maddy and I actually like Facebook’s new reaction emoticons. To be honest, I was rather relieved to find they did not include a thumbs-down “dislike” button in the selections they’ve given us. I’ve seen those get abused on other sites and I personally don’t see the point of making it easier for people to be negative or mean. There always remains the option to scroll past something you don’t like seeing in your feed, without interacting with it as well.

I’ve heard some concerns from people thinking these reactions will make people lazier and less likely to comment but I think the Like button has already done that job! I think people who still want to comment will continue to do so but those who say they only have time to press a button while scrolling their feeds will now have more options to choose from and can express sympathy for an illness with an unhappy face, rather than “liking” a sad post just to acknowledge it, or can express anger over a wrong done to a friend without looking like they were glad to see it happen by “liking” it.

It seems they’ve put a lot of thought into it, which I’m happy to see. Are you using them? What do you think about them?
