Meet Dolly

Meet the new kids..heads only..


Dolly Hepher #1


the great limb cut out..


My Big MASTER plan is to make the kids dolls for Christmas (or Nikolaus-Dec 6-if I can't wait!).

Kids are aware of this, as they watch me sew, and are thinking of names for their dolls.
Wren really wants to play with her hairless, and unclothed doll, but I had to shoo her away as Dolly still has pins for eyes!

Today I asked Finn what he wanted to name his doll.
He said: it will be my "I love you Dolly".
I said, "ok, let's come up with some more names too, ok?"
(Ok, so maybe I do have an agenda, like:I want names less sugary than that.)
Mike is voting for "Wally" for Finn's Doll, but first I have to convince Finn that his doll will actually be a boy.
He is not really sold on the idea yet.
Alas, there is time...for convincing!

Isn't it awesome to see them come "to life" and to know these dolls will be the focus of so much of their energy, their games, their cuddles & their memories? I LOVE IT & I know it sounds super sappy but it makes me feel better to know that I make them these dolls...not Wal-Mart...or Disney...but me, their Msms. Do you feel the same or am I alone in doll-land, place for weirdos?
Now, back to Earth, Ikea: you got it.
Question: what the hell is going on with blogger & verification words nowadays? they all make SO much sense...I got "triatial" which in my non-english brain translates as "try a towel".
Peace.
