Party Time

It is birthday season in our house. One after the next, we get to take joy in celebrating each member of the family. Well, except for me, the summer baby. It has been fun to share in making thoughtful presents. I loved Vivienne's Matryoshka theme for her party. It was so sweet and represented her love for other cultures, fairy tales and dolls. It also sparked my creativity and I realize that I love making dolls.


 This beautiful knitting kit was made by my friend, Tracy and her daughter , Emily. Can you see the adorable matryoshka knitting needles?


Other birthday handmade items: Sweet little bags made by sweet girls, Francesca's (left) and Savannah's(right).

and here is my soft matryoshka inspired doll for Vivi.

Happy birthday, my sweet eight-year-old!
