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…

Love Continues to Grow

I have been poring over journals from the last year.  I got really emotional before Heidi’s first birthday (February 8), thinking about all that God has done in my life in one short year.  I spent most of her pregnancy fighting a really unhealthy fear of birth, wrestling with the decision to call five beautiful,…

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…

Miss Vanilla, CatPuppies,The Fox and Rabbit, and Super Bunny

Happy Monday from The Paper Doll Club!  Today we have some sweet paper dolls for you. Miss Vanilla has ice cream for hair and a combination sugar cone/plain cone dress.  If she gets cold, you can put on her strawberry syrup shawl, and if she’d like to go out for some fun, put on her…

Super Bunny Boy, Ninja Bunnies, Baby Sisters, and Girls With Fans

Happy Leap Day!  This is a fun week from The Paper Doll Club.  For all of the little boys who have patiently endured weeks of princesses and very girly paper dolls, this week is for you!  Super Bunny Boy is a fun little guy.  I especially like his skinny rocket pjs.  Hope you will have fun coloring…

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….

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…

My Father

This morning, I am going to church to hear my Father preach.  I have done this literally thousands of times in my life.  Every Sunday morning and Sunday night of my childhood, I listened to him deliver a message that he had prayed over and wrestled with throughout the week. This morning, I will sit in the…

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 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…
