i picked up these cute little play maps from a mama at the hip holiday market and decided to paint a gang of little wood dolls to go along with them. i don't paint often, but it was a lot of fun!
here they are neatly rolled up with the wool felt pouches i sewed to hold the wood dolls. harper has discovered that his wood cars navigate nicely on the city map!
and here are a couple of esme's handmade gifts for santa- in addition to cookies and chocolate milk (and peppermint bark!) she left these and other surprises around the house for him. it took mr. and mrs. claus quite a bit of time to find them all, but luckily they didn't miss a single one! i am sure santa will cherish and hang on to them for a very, very long time!
