Oh, aren't they sweet? All the girls in their white dresses, celebrating the light? I'm so charmed by them all!
These are just some of the photos that have been submitted to the Santa Lucia Clothespin Doll group on Flickr. Please go over and look at the amazing job that everyone is doing on the dolls! From petticoats to painted stands, every single one is unique and adorable!
Thank you again for ordering these and for sharing them with me and all of us. I have loved getting your emails about what it was like to make them with your families, and spend some quiet, sweet, simple afternoons being a kid again with a paintbrush in one hand and a hot chocolate in the other, music playing, and a puppers sleeping under the table. (You wouldn't believe how many people have written and told me about their dogs sleeping under the tables while they worked on these! How cute is that!) I am so very pleased that you are enjoying the kits. It's really the best Christmas present I could've gotten this year. Thank you. It really means a lot to me to see all of these, so thank you for sharing them.
If you've made some dolls, please take some photos and join the group! You can click the button in the sidebar at upper right to see the slideshow or join the group, and I'll try to send out invitations to everyone who ordered a kit, too. You need not have gotten a kit to join, though — even if you just made some on your own, you are very welcome to join!
Happy Santa Lucia Day! I wish you light and love!
