Sweet Miss Meringue, The Apple Family, and The Strawberry Dragon

We have paper dolls from Rosie, Paloma, and Kells this week!  We started with a fruit theme, and from that, we ended up with a couple of adorable little Apple Families by Rosie and Paloma (I especially love their baby apples, don’t you???), as well as a Strawberry Dragon by Kells.  Do you think he…

Mermaid, Friends, and Our First Guest Artist

Exciting things happening this week in the paper doll club.  Today we have a special guest artist!  She is a nine-year-old girl who loves to draw and color.  Her name is Gwyneth, and she was inspired by a movie called Song of the Sea (one of our favorites, by the way), and she drew two…

Cinderella, Little Red, and Sleeping Beauty Paper Dolls

We were in a fairy tale mood this week.  I had a lot of fun drawing Cinderella, which was one of my favorites as a child.  Rosie’s Little Red Riding Hood is beautiful and sweet.  Perfect for play.  Paloma drew a lovely Sleeping Beauty.  (I am slightly terrified of her old witch with the spinning…

Robot Friends and Art by Kells

This week I am sending Robot Friends, a set of paper dolls that will hopefully be fun for boys and girls.  I made these for my son Kells.  He is four years old and has an incredible imagination. He’s always drawing robots and rockets and dragons and people fighting with light sabers.  I am including some…

Swan Lake, Violet Fairy, and The Love Cats by The Paper Doll Club

We have lots of dolls for you this week!  Swan Lake is a ballet with amazing music by Tchaikovsky.  I have never actually seen the ballet, but I listened to the story with the music as a child.  This morning, the girls and I listened to a great rendition of the story on spotify called Swan Lake,…

The Nutcracker Paper Dolls and Gift Idea

Merry Christmas from The Paper Doll Club!  Here is the promised Week 2 of The Nutcracker Doll Set with Clara and The Mouse King.  (Last week we posted The Nutcracker and The Sugar Plum Fairy.)  Hope you enjoy them.  Rosie made a beautiful Clara doll, and I think you will agree that Kells’ Mouse King…

The Nutcracker Paper Dolls

The kids and I got really inspired this week, and we are happy to share with you Part 1 of The Nutcracker Paper Doll Set.  We will be sending Part 2 next week, so after you color these and cut them out (while listening to The Dance of the Sugarplum Fairies, of course!), save them so…

The Snow Child Paper Dolls

This week’s paper dolls were inspired by a beautiful play that the girls and I saw with a friend over the weekend.  It was based on a Russian folktale called The Snow Child, about a barren couple who build a child out of snow.  Through love and magic, the child comes to life.  The play…

Paper Nativity from The Paper Doll Club

Just in time for Advent, here is this week’s Paper Doll Set.  We all pitched in on this one (I think you will especially like Kells’s angel!).  This is such a beautiful time of year. Enjoy your paper nativity.  There are more characters in this great story.  Can you draw them and add them to…

Paper Tea Set from The Paper Doll Club!

I love this one.  Rosie, Paloma, and I love tea parties.  Over the summer, we inherited all of the leftover tea from The Baron York Cafe, a beautiful little tea room that used to sit in the heart of downtown Clarkesville.  It was a favorite spot for Randy and me, and is one of the…

Paper Doll and Song: Stargirl

This week, Rosie decided to make a “space girl,” so I was inspired to illustrate a character from a song that I wrote several years ago called Stargirl and Moonboy.  It is a sweet little love song that Randy and I recorded here at the house.  I play accordion, and he plays guitar, bass, and Irish…
