Yes, my husband has some of my dolls. Once in awhile, he asks to own one of them. I like that he likes the dolls that I make. Of course, they are sweet - all due to the excellent design of Gail Wilson. Here are pictures of the dolls my husband has taken to work with him. They permanently reside on his office bookshelf. I will include links to Gail's and other websites, so you may see the info about purchasing your own kit, pattern, or finished doll or other items. click here for her home page.
Here is Lottie Click here , who I missed awhile ago and wondered where she was! I thought maybe she had gone wandering with a kitty, but here she is safe and sound. Guess I forgot she went to live at Baker Publishing Groups home office. Lottie was featured in 'Homespun' Magazine of Austrailia. We made Lottie a few years back at a class at Attic Window Quilt Shop in Comstock Park, MI. We meet there every Thursday, weather permitting for doll making fun. We are currently working on the Portrait Izannah Walker doll.
Little Red Riding Riding Hood and Big Bad Wolf have
become fast friends after sharing a nice lunch from Red's shaker style wooden lunch box. There's nothing like a good meal when you are hungry to take away that desire to eat little girls, right BBW? LRRH and BBW are now retired.
By their feet is my first Noah's ark - one of Gail's early versions of this tiny treasure. It has a little fence around Noah's ark - all hand painted be me many years ago. There are several little pairs of animals near the fence and even a pair of doves on the roof of the ark. There is another version of Noah's Ark available on Gail's website in the tiny dolls section.

Hitty click here has her very own rocker from Anne Giblin. My Hitty at home has one too, they are very sweet rockers. Hitty holds her very own small copy of her book "Hitty, Her First One Hundred Years" by Rachel Field. This book is from Papermini.com click here
Sign up for the free newsletter and get a link once a month free projects to print and make. The link you will get has another link to past projects. There are some Holiday items that are especially cute: Valentines, Candy Boxes, The Paas Easter egg kit and the Pink Peeps. The items are available in different scales including American Girl size. Be sure to read the tutorial and paper type recommendations. Some items require card stock or other heavier weight paper.
The Hitty book was a Paperminis past project and is not available free, but you can purchase the book to make or already made up. The little bears are nearby on their own settee. I suppose since it is almost valentine's day, they might be whispering sweet nothings to each other. You can find the small bears here: click here.
