Hello. Guess what I've been doing?
I hate being predictable, but the heart wants what the heart wants.
This is Abigail the peculiar librarian. I don't trust her. Anybody with red eyes automatically qualifies to be placed on my suspicious, odd, watch out for this one, list. Yes, even if they are librarians. Abigail was inspired by Emily Martin's Two of a Kind painting. Love her work!
While I was working on Abigail, my daughter asked me to make her a "married doll." She is really into brides and love stories. ( I don't know how much more her dad can take of her talking about marriage and babies. My husband doesn't have any sisters, so he doesn't quite understand a little girls psyche. However, he is trying.) I told B-girl that I would make the bride's dress and she can paint the bride. Deal? Deal! And here is the blushing bride....
What a sweetie! I will forever remember my daughter's face after she painted the smile on the married girl, she turned to me and said "she is smiling like this" and she made the most awkwardly cute smile I ever did see. Designing and making the doll was a fun, memorable, tear free, experience for the both of us.
Married girl - I think it's so cute how little ones talk. Often times, I find it difficult to correct my little ones when the say something that is not grammatically correct or accurate. A couple of weeks ago, my daughter asked me a question about giving birth (see, there's the babies thing again) and she began the sentence like this " Mama, when you laid me......." I forgot what the rest of the question was, because it was so funny to me that she thought I laid her. No, I didn't correct her, as a matter of fact, yesterday she asked me if Hanna (our dog) was ever going to lay babies. Another favorite of mine is the mispronunciation of them as dems. My daughter will say "Can I have all of dems?" or "Is dems coming with us?" Reluctantly, I began to correct her, but it's funny how catchy dems is. One day while at work, my husband referred to a group of people as "all dems." He came home and said we have to stop saying "dems."
Have a wonderful weekend. Next week should be a fun week here at Prettydittyville. I have a makeover/tutorial to share with you, as well as a couple of doll kit giveaways.
