My darling daughter attends the Clytie Adams School of Ballet. She has since she was three. She LOVES it. She tried out for Nutcracker this year, and made it! She had tried out two times previously, and didn't make it before. This time before tryouts, I told her, "Smile as big as you can. No matter what, just smile!" She was like, "Mom, I didn't smile the last times I tried out and I was fine." She wasn't fine, she didn't make it. She figured that out, and smiled as big as she could, and she made it! I was so happy that she learned such a great lesson to not give up! Way to go girlie! I love you!
As a parent, you are assigned to work on a committee. I was assigned the boutique committee, and got to design and make some clothespin dolls to sell. A big shout out to Holly for helping wrap all the arms! Thanks my friend!
I am thrilled to share them with you, and this is my favorite! The Arabian... I love her, especially her pants!
I made 56 dolls in all. It was a lot of work, but they turned out super cute!
I didn't get a close up photo of the Oriental, but they were darling, and look just like my kokeshi dolls that I make.
The performances run Thursday through Saturday at the Browning Center in Ogden, UT. I am so excited to see her dance her little heart out! If you are coming, stop by and say hello, and pick up a clothespin doll, or anything else you fancy!
Have a Happy and Creative Day, and thanks for stopping by!
