I have been making dolls and doing this kind of work for over 25 yrs. I have made a million dolls and have learned and changed my style a hundred and 20 times. I have made alot of dolls that I like and once in a while I make a doll I love. This doll is by far my favorite for the whole year. Which is so strange if you knew me. I love girly but am not girly. I like pink and white but don't decorate with it. So out of my norm and yet it is that face that captured my heart. She was a special order for a dear customer and I know when she sees her upclose and personal she will love her as much as I do.
The pictures make her look a bit dark but she is a cinnamon brown color like real gingerbread. I used a cookie to match the color.
Each part of her dress was planned very carefully. I thought of ginger bread houses as I made her. The laces are to look like frosting and the sugar tinsil trim was made to look like sugar.
I also made her little wool shoes and a tiny bucket for her candy. Just so durn sweet. Now I am getting in a mood for the Christmas season.
I do hope that you all have a Happy and safe Thanksgiving with your family. I will be enjoying time with family and then celebrate again on Friday when My Jake returns. I think I can suffer through turkey and pumpkin pie twice. LOL YUMM YUMM.
Blessings to you and yours,Pea
