The dolls are finished!

Yes, I've finally finished painting all 8 dolls and what a project it has been!  I've had a lot of fun doing it, but oh, the hours that I've spent on those little dolls!  I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so I've tried to get every little detail right (but didn't necessarily succeed).  I think a good phrase to describe the dolls is "good from far, far from good." :P  I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, but when I look at them up close I see all the little imperfections (which are probably just noticable to my own eyes - not like Annika has complained about anything).  So, you've met the bride and groom already, and the polka dot baby girl and the little boy in the overalls, so without further ado, here's the rest of the family:








The whole bunch...

As I mentioned before, Emmett is also quite taken with these little people, and so far Annika has actually been pretty good at sharing with him (she only shares the boys though).  The other day they were both playing quite nicely with the dolls and the dollhouse and I wanted to take a picture of it because they looked so cute, but somehow this is what I got.


Oh well. :P

I'm thinking about doing another set (I'd like to paint some to look like the "Peanuts" characters), but I think I'll take a little break before undertaking another project.  I've been seeing these little people in my sleep (which, combined with re-reading "The Hunger Games" before bed, makes for some pretty strange dreams!!).

They look great to me! But even with some imperfections, that's what makes them HOME-MADE. Good job!

I LOVE that the mom is wearing an apron, as well as the details, especially on the apron and on the striped hoodie. Awesome job!!

Awesome! They are perfect. You did an amazing job and I love all the details. I've enjoyed following along with the process.
