Together at last!!

This is the latest love of my life, name yet to be determined!!  She was the second doll I have made, this one for my niece who turned 3 yesterday.  She was special from the beginning, as what is not special about a little doll for a little one?  I worked on her for weeks, and my son would often remind me,

“Mama we have to work on Juni’s doll!”  So be both wove our love & time into her. IMG_6289

Every step was a learning process, but I was so pleased with the results I carried her around for days myself.  The clothes hand-made, tailor fit, the hair made to match that of her new little mama’s.  She even got to play with my son’s doll, who now looks extremely odd next to her….IMG_6286

Though it was a little hard to pack her in a box and send her far, far away, I waited for patiently for her to arrive into my niece’s arms.  And sure enough, she was well received!!  “She looks like me!” was exclaimed with glee!  What could be better than hard work so well received!! IMG_0304

 

So, as this crafting season is upon us and the pressure of gifts, made or bought is upon us, I am trying to really connect with the spirit of giving really is.  Letting the spirit of who people are, what the need and what they love guide me to create things that will reach from my heart to theirs.  I truly hope that the gift giving frenzy can be warded off with slow steady gestures of connection & love.  Nothing more scary than a crazed, crafty mama, now is there?!  So my friends let the crafting begin!!

  1. hmm, were you thinking of me when you wrote “crazed crafty mama?” I’m actively working to not be she, and this reminder is welcome!
