Eugene Fitzherbert and Tigerlily

Emily has been asking for a Tigerlily reborn doll since my sister made one for an online class and Sarah has been asking for an "open eyed boy doll".  I bought some kits on sale in April and commissioned my sister to paint them for me.  I made their bodies and clothes with self crafted patterns.  Since I was doing a character baby for Emi, I decided to do a character for Sarah, too.  Since her favorite princess is Rapunzel from "Tangled", I made her a Eugene Fitzherbert (aka Flynn Rider).  I didn't have Eugene's vest completely done for Christmas, but far enough to be presentable!  My dad made the hooks for Eugene's vest as I couldn't find any that worked.


All put together:

Merry Christmas 2013!

We had a few different gift opening times with the main one being on Christmas itself.  The kids took turns taking pictures of the adults opening gifts, so we got some strange angles and looks (never quite know when they are actually taking the pictures!)

The ornaments I made out of clay:

My razor died a couple of weeks ago and I was thinking I'd have to wait for awhile to get a replacement and save the money for more important things.  Well, Dan got me one ☺
