A House for Lalaloopsy

We found that CD racks are the perfect size for a Lalaloopsy house, or any doll of that size like Polly Pocket and Littlest Pet Shop.

We were so fortunate to find these fun house shaped CD racks at Michael's in the unfinished wood section for under $3.00! With a little paint, they were picture perfect :o)

... But I can imagine that squared CD racks would make a great townhouse look!

Happy Crafting

Shhh... She is Made Out of Socks!

With the new Lalaloopsy craze hitting the toy stores this holiday season I had to find an alternative when all the toy stores were sold out!

Using three socks, some scrap fleece, pink felt and a couple of buttons... I was able to throw together this cute handmade doll in no time :o)

Piano Lessons, Anyone?

You can take our easy 18 inch doll desk and quickly convert it into a piano with just a few adjustments.

First, we printed a set of keys off our computer and cut them out...

 made a music stand by folding a piece of thin cardboard
(like the kind you find on a cereal box)...

drew some sheet music on a some piece of computer paper and done!
