I really do! I think I am living through Journey, she loves these little guys as much as I do, and I seriously can hardly resist them. Jaydon and I went to Toys R Us last week to finish shopping for the girls, and they had a Calico Critters section, and I'm not gonna sugar coat it- I almost squealed out loud. I'm used to drolling online, and hadnt really seen so much cuteness in one place/dose.
I really really wanted to buy the Cherry Cruiser for Journey but she received this green guy and the camper caravan last year for Christmas, and we really do not have room for two cars this size!
-Yes I really did take pictures of her car. :) I've been wanting to just take some time and photograph the individual families, the car, the camper (still have to do that one) etc. etc. I photographed Trinity's doll house back when she first got it for Christmas back in 2008, and I had not done so with Journey's doll house yet... lets just say I felt like a kid again today. :)
Yesterday I started designing wallpapers for Journey's house, and went with the rustic woodsy theme. I'll try to have a more official post up in the coming weeks, but I did finish it today. I also set it all up and took some pictures, but I'm gonna retake them in some sunny natural light.
Here is a little peek though!
and here is a sampling of what the family portraits look like:
Aren't the hedgehogs so stinking cute? I think my faves so far is the Ellwoods Elephant family.
They were lots of fun to take pictures of. :)
It has been forever since I've done any sort of a crafty project like this, and it has felt good!
We bought my niece jada her own little Calico Critters house (although we grabbed it on sale for 39.99) for Christmas this year. She always enjoys playing with the girls' when she comes over, so she definitely needed to start her own collection! :)
Although he doesnt get played with as often, the bear in the lion costume is another fave of mine:
adorable huh? :)
In other news, I can hardly believe tomorrow is the 23rd!? Crazy. I have some baking and cleaning to do, but all my presents are wrapped! :) I've gone through the kids' toys and clothes and I have a bag ready to be donated. I always like to declutter the house before Christmas, maybe it because of the upcoming New Year? Am I the only one who has that urge this time of the year?
We may be leaving town next week, still not sure... but I'll be keeping my etsy shop closed until the first part of January. :) I hope you are enjoying the holidays! I'm trying to soak it all up, it always goes by so fast. The cold is so much easier to endure when Christmas music is played, and twinkly lights are up. :)
