Pleasant Surprise

book 001 Have you seen Emily Martin of Black Apple fame’s new book? Since I have loved her artwork and dolls forever I HAD to get a copy – for Poppy of course and $20 odd dollars seemed pretty good value. When it came it was so lovely that I thought I would share it. There are so many gorgeous characters and even scenes, and at the back are a stack of make your own clothes and people as well as other ideas for your paper doll family.

book 002book 005 For a pleasant change there is lots of boy characters too so I am going to cut out  half to Poppy and half to Caleb. Caleb is loving drawing shirts and pants that we cut out and add heads and funny names too so he should really enjoy it. I ordered another copy for a classmates birthday coming up as a good school holiday present.

book 003 *No-one has asked me to write this, I just wanted to share. You do have to cut all the pieces out and unfortunately the pages aren’t perforated or spiral bound.

What a gorgeous book, I love the old stylie illustrations and I bet it would keep idle hands busy for quite awhile through Qld wet summer days.
