Foto Friday

Playing a little photo catch-up. My dad spent a lot of time getting me a computer to use after mine died. But it is having a bit of a slow problem regarding the internet. Enough so that I would never even dare to try posting on it. So I'm catching up while I have my son's computer here. Yes I do realize how sad that sentence is.

Now that Christmas is past, I can post the projects I finished. The one I was most excited about was a Zombie Dorthy doll for my niece Ella. For those that don't read my sister Britta's blog, you will have to first check out this picture that my niece drew of Zombie Dorthy. My mom had the great idea that someone should make her a doll based off of her drawing and I decided to take the challenge. I was very happy with the results, and from what I heard Ella was too.

About 6 months ago I had the very ambitious goal to make sock creatures for all of my nieces and nephews. That did not even come close to happening. I got one done. And since Ella was getting a doll, her sister Sophie got the one sock creature I did finish.

I still wanted to make something for the rest of the kids. But by the time I got the other stuff done it was almost Christmas, so I needed something fast. A girl at my work made us these cute little mice ornaments. You squeeze their cheeks and get a kiss. A hershey kiss that is. Kind of cheesy for my tastes (no pun intended) but I figured the kids would think they were cute. Will has decided that he can only eat pieces of candy that the mouse can pick up with its mouth, so I think he at least liked them.

Then it was Christmas

Then New Year's Eve at the mall

Couldn't resist posting this

Then visiting with lots of family. And getting some amazing chocolates straight from France. Benefit of having family living abroad!

And amid all that, Will lost his first tooth! It took us 3 days to remember to put it under his pillow, but he is now the proud owner of a dollar bill to add to his new piggy bank.

And so ends another year...

Pretty sure the zombie Dorothy doll is one of the top five best Christmas presents. Great job on the other projects! I had no plans for projects this year, but I have a list I ought to tackle this year for sure.

Those dolls and objects you made are really cool, Kari! I'm sure everyone appreciated them. And Will lost a tooth, I hope that's a lucky sign for you and all of us for 2011!

A dollar?! I only got quarters! What a rip.

Ella DOES love Zombie Dorothy - she sleeps with her and makes up stories about her. Sophie loves her "kitty" (everything is a kitty or puppy to her) and the ornaments are very cute.
