Merry "Crissy-mas"

                          Happy Holidays! 
Loved this gold holiday fabric. I was playing with maxi dresses and princess seams on these new holiday dresses I made for my Ideal Crissys.

I don't know if you can see it--but I put three layers of ruffles on the side pieces of the short dress--hard to tell here because I did not use a contrasting fabric.

I love the princess seams--because I could easily add a sash to the dresses--love a sash!

All are Ideal Crissy's except the one in the center--she is an Ideal Kerry--Crissy's Irish cousin. Crissy is considered a "hair play" doll--you can probably see that I love to play with their hair. I should mention though that everyone of these has had re-rooted hair.

I love making stacked hair bows! Lots of great tutorials out there!

Rapunzel Tonner's Tangled

 This is Robert Tonner's Tangled. She has been on my wishlist since before she was released--but when she was released she cost a bit more than I was willing to pay--- $189.00 (!!!!!)--I got lucky though, and recently was able to get her for less than half of that--I am so happy I get to cross her off my wish list and add her to my collection. My favorite things about her are her super cute freckles and she has the cutest nose, I think her face paint is superb as well, she is Ellowynne Wilde scale (same big head, too) so she fits in with my Ellos and my Tonner "Pop Goes Oz" dolls --in fact she and Pru could be sisters thier faces are a bit similar. She shares Ello's body except that she has flat feet.  Her hair is super long and soooooo soft.
Look at that hair!!

These are my daughter's cute shelves.

Such a pretty face.
