I am very excited and must Share....

I have made an acquisition for my daughter Natalie for x-mas. I am very excited and must share. I feel safe as she does not read my blog...being only 4-1/2 yrs old. HA HA!
I found this artist on Etsy that makes Paper dolls using your child's face. The shop is called Amarias Paper Works. I sent her a picture of Natalie and she took her face and added it to a hand painted paper doll body. Then the clothing are hand painted and reproduced and magnetic so the child can change and outfits. The artist, Amaria was so easy to work with. She to is a working at home mom. She live is Australia. This is the picture I sent her of Natalie:
I sent her pictures of Natalie's ballet leotard, described her favorite Princess and a causal out fit with lots of colors and butterfly's she might wear. This is a jpg of the doll:
She was even kind enough to include another cute dress as a bonus. I am so excited to give them to her. I almost feel like I want to give me to her early or late so they won't get lost in the shuffle of the x-mas crazy. Aren't they CUTE!

Those are fantastic and she looks as cute as a button! I don't know about you, but I would have loved paper dolls like this as a child. What a wonderful gift! She will love it!

Wow! I just checked in to your blog and found you'd posted this a few days ago! Thank you so much! I hope your daughter is as excited by it as you are.
