I just thought it would be fun to share shots from our Monday ..
First thing in the morning we put together the bodies and match up hair to create the doll ‘packages’ that the sewing mama’s will collect and put together.
Big ‘Pile ‘o’ Hair’ …
Some sewing mama’s picking up and dropping off their weekly dollies …
Sewing, sewing, sewing .. today the gals work on clothing that will dress the dolls for Thursday’s upload…
Brandi is entering all the clothing upload listings and Jennie is making up the boxes, cutting the cellophane, cutting the strings, getting the birth certificates ready and basically doing all the prep work for the big shipping day of all the dolls tomorrow..
Lucky for us Bill, our sewing machine fix it guy, came by with his wife Karen (who now sew’s clothing for us). He mentioned that he sharpens scissors and had his machine in his van .. we basically pounced on the guy and gave him all our scissors. Lots. Of. Scissors.
I have a little area set up with a basket of toys and some doll stuff (obviously!). Most of our sewing mama’s are moms (and the others are soon to be moms!) so having stuff to keep the little ones entertained is essential! Cute little guys!
There you have it .. a typical sort of Monday at Bamboletta. Me, I’m on the couch sewing on faces and I get up to say ‘hi’ and chit chat with the ladies as they come in. I should have got Brandi to snap a picture of me – next time! I’ll try to get some pics of our ‘Tuesday’ tomorrow.
