Moving Through Fear

  I am in the second trimester of my sixth pregnancy.  This is really happening.  This is set in motion.  In a few short months, this pregnancy will end in labor, delivery, and the prize of all prizes–another sweet baby in our family. People literally say to me all the time, regarding birth, “Oh, you’re…

The Princess and The Pea and Beauty and the Beast

Hello from The Paper Doll Club.  We are having some technical difficulties around here.  Our internet has been down off and on for two weeks, which has made uploading impossible, and last week our scanner died.  (See the weird marks on the bottom of Paloma’s drawing)  : ( So, I am going to take the pressure…

Half a Year of Paper Dolls from The Paper Doll Club

It is The Paper Doll Club’s Half-Birthday!  Thanks to all of those who stop by and print out our drawings to color and play with.  It has been a lot of fun for me and the kids. This week, I have to admit, that due to a lot of major transition in our lives (more…

Janie, Rosie, Heidi, and Mae

This week the girls named their paper dolls after themselves.  Not sure why.  Rosie named the cat after her baby sister, Heidi. I love Rosie’s color palette this week.  She drew her pictures on white card stock and painted them with watercolors, then cut them and pasted them onto a piece of brown kraft paper…

Poppy, Lady Leucojum, and Friends

Happy Spring from The Paper Doll Club. I love the girls’ drawings this week.  Rosie’s Poppy has a beautiful pink poppy dress.  I love everything about this doll. Paloma’s little girls are full of rich details.  One of the friends is carrying a basket of easter eggs.  I hope you enjoy playing with these paper…

Miss Blackbird Pie

In honor of Pi Day, I made a pie dolly today.  She is based on the old nursery rhyme: Sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of rye 4 and 20 blackbirds, baked in a pie When the pie was opened, the birds began to sing Wasn’t that a dainty dish to set before…

Best Friends, Girls, and a Bunny from The Paper Doll Club

Some sweet girls by Rosie and Paloma this week.  I think you will love all of the detail to color in Paloma’s girls.  She made a doll named Rosie that is very Valentine-y, complete with a heart sweater, box of chocolates, heart crown, and special bouquet of flowers.  Rosie has made a beautiful girl with…

Valentines and The Queen of Hearts

Happy February from The Paper Doll Club.  This week, we made Valentines!  Print them out on some card stock, color them, write your to and from on the back, and pass them out or drop them in the mail for Valentine’s Day.  I loved making these.  My favorite is the peanut butter and jelly sandwich….

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…
