Meet our New Family and their New Digs.

Gina loves "Arts and Crafts" (as she calls it). Kerry has not been working for the past month at his primary job, so we decided to take advantage of him. He gets to play with Adler while G and I do projects. Before Christmas I had bought some wooden peg people to maybe make for gifts. Well time completely got away from me and this was a project I put off. Good thing, because Gina loved painting these.

She had big plans for these people. I am second from left :) For the house we used an unfinished wood CD holder from Michael's (I had this for a Christmas gift too, yet another project that didn't get done).Gina's own bedroom is a very muted version of her dollhouse room. Purple with blue polka dots. She painted the walls, I added the dots. The downstairs she insisted be blue with red roses. It is lovely. Again she painted the walls, then she painted the red blobs for the roses and I outlined them in pink.She chose the color for the outside of the house too. Although I swayed her decision of painting the window panes green. And here we are! Adler, Gina, Mom, and Dad :) I love them! She did a fantastic job, don't you think?

We have furniture to sew still, so more to come.

Gail, thanks for visiting my blog! I really glad to have another new friend in blogland :)

The dool house is cute, your girl must love it.
And your sewing space...wow...it's my dream to have it. I just plan to buy a sewing machine next month.

By the way, I've already fixed my girl's blog setting for commenting, maybe now you can give comment there. Thanks again.
