Play Day

Yesterday was an Ivan day. What a good natured toddler. I'm amazed at all his new words each week. The weather was unusually good (for February in Oregon), so we walked to the park with the "doggy-woof." I learned that Tapiola Park is named for a district in Espoo, Finland, in recognition of the large number of Finnish immigrants who pioneered early Astoria. It features Astoria-theme playground elements, including a miniature Flavel House and Trolley.

Today is a Doll Play Day. Danielle is coming over in a few hours to work on our Izannah Workshop dolls, though my studio is in no fit state for company right now. I've got a little time to tidy up and get some snacky things. It's important to have a bit of chocolate (nothing too melty that it'll get on the dolls), protein, coffee, and maybe a little wine for later.

Update: we had a fun and productive day. Here's Danielle working on her Izannah's dress. Our dolls are in the oven right now, speeding up the drying of the paperclay.

Oh, that sounds divine! I wish I was nearer I would crash your doll/chocolate/wine party. Have fun!

Make room for me too, I love wine with chocolate, dark chocolate is best. I'll be thinking of you both as I sip coffee instead here in Vermont. Hugs, Judi

Wouldn't be fun if you all lived closer? You'd all be welcome to come over and play.
