Thanks to all of you who entered the Studio 5 ticket giveaway. I drew the names out of a bowl, and the winner has been notified. I believe there are still a few tickets left, so email firstname.lastname@example.org, and ask!
Over the next week, I will be sharing creative ideas for holiday cards. The finale will be a fun segment on Studio 5, where I share all of the ideas at once! This one was just too fun not to include on the list!
I was home sick a few Sunday's ago, and was in the mood to sew. So, I started on these cute little dolls! 6 hours later… They are complete! The most time consuming part, was deciding how to dress them. Really, it was. Other than turning the arms and legs for 5 dolls right side out, they were rather easy to make. I found the pattern HERE. Don't you love it when people offer their patterns for free? Makes my day! Head over to her site, and check it out. That site has so much cuteness to be seen!
Once I finished the dolls, I decided to have a little Christmas photo shoot.
The tree, tree skirt, ornaments, and sign were from the Target dollar spot.
I like to think about sitting near the Christmas tree with my hunky blue eyed husband!
The day I took these photos was overcast and dark!
I was going for a, "The children were nestled all snug in their beds," in these shots.
I love them, and my kids LOVE them. My baby takes his wherever he goes, and my tween daughter wants hers in her room. There is something fun about owning a personalized gift. They will be living in our under-the-stairs-playhouse... if I can get them away from my kids!
Happy Holidays! - from The Baker family
