Wooden Spoon Dolls

Yesterday we had a school bazaar at my school and to contribute to my class' stall I made these wooden spoon dolls and a bunch of my bohemian pom-poms. I didn't have much time due to many piled up obligations so managed to whip up these two the night before the bazaar. 
I wanted to explore more this idea when I made this doll, but sadly, running two jobs doesn't give me much time to dedicate myself completely to my wondrous flow of ideas.

Both dolls were envisioned and made differently. The bigger is posher than the smaller, but because of her sturdy dress the smaller gets to stand on its own, while the pink doll needs a slight support. Also, I am sad for not being confident to draw their eyes so I sewed beads instead. That is something I would love to work on more.
I worked on their attire on a whim, and not being prepared for how everything might turn out - I am quite satisfied with the final result. 
As I am perpetually drawn to make kids' stuff I would love to have more time in the future to make more toys that tickle my fancy.

Your Wooden Spoon Dolls are really adorable, dear Maya. I know very well that it is very difficult to find enough time on these dates for everything we want to do, and that everything can be finished in the right time. The bunch of my bohemian pom-poms would be lovely too, perfect for decorating a Christmas Tree. 2019 is going over in a few time. I wish you and yours a wonderful seasonal holiday and a venturous, healthy and happy New Year 2020! ✨ 💕✨ 💕

Oh, it goes a long way for me Mia! We used to make such in primary school, and I've enjoyed making them as much as I did back then, the only thing is my mom did most of the work and I decorated them.

Hello Anabelia and thank you on the well wishing! Creativity is not a tap one can just turn off, so I try not to be frustrated by lack of time but I try to do my best in what I am currently working on. I am sure we all do :)
Many happy wishes for an incredible, exciting and joyful year ahead to you and yours!! xoxox
