And We Have a Winner!


The winner is Melanie. I’ve contacted Melanie and have told her the news! Yah Melanie!

I will be doing another contest very soon! Thanks so much everyone for entering.

**Lets all give a big round of applause to my lovely John for sorting through all the entries and new subscribers. My subscriber list for the newsletter doubled with this last contest..that was a LOT of scraps of paper for John to write on! **

Jasper is having a very rare sleep right now, so I’m off to sew (hence the quicky blog post). I got this love letter today from a customer that I created a few dolls for. I do often get love letters..and I print them all, they do mean that much to me. But this one from Marina was really special. Getting letters like this mean more to me then you could know- it’s the best. Thanks so much everyone!

Oh Christina,

Thank you so much for the beautiful dolls that arrived yesterday. Tears came to my eyes when I lifted Kaisa out of the box. I’d like to be able to blame it on the pregnancy hormones, but honestly- she is just . that . beautiful. There was something so sweet about burying my face in that gorgeous, sweet hair of hers. My husband thought it was endearing to see me cuddled up on the couch with her asleep after my precious boys had gone to bed.

My youngest, Nico LOVES holding her and I really don’t know if I’ll be able to wait until his birthday in a month to give him her brother, Pablo- who is by far the nicest, sweetest boy doll I’ve ever seen. I also love the little blanket doll, which I am adding to my little stash of treasures to give to my little one when he arrives.

Out of curiousity, do you still put crystals inside the dolls? I am just so amazed by the visceral response I had when actually holding them. You do amazing magic, Christina and I feel so fortunate to have something of that here.

Many, many warm thoughts,

P.S. I do put crystals in their heads – this will be an option and is now.

    Uh… is it me? Or a different Melanie? I’m guessing not me, because there’s nothing in my inbox… but now I’m curious…?

    Wow, that letter made ME cry, and I’m not even pregnant! How embarrassing! I’m very inspired though, and I decided that next time our family relocates, I am buying a Bamboletta doll for each of my children (I have two at the moment) and will have it sent to our new home to meet us there and be a special transition friend. (Don’t worry, this won’t be anything I need by Christmas, so you can breathe a sigh of relief that I’m not adding to your already potentially overwhelming workload).
    Thanks for loving what you do and sharing it with all of us!

    CanCan, what a sweet idea! I want to move just so I can do that! Now I just need to convince my husband that we need to move so I can buy another doll…

    Congratulations, Melanie!
