Mariann's companion doll

I gave Mariann her new doll this weekend... She didn't care much about her at first (I think I could have cried), better liking to play with wooden blocks and, oh my, the red tricycle my mom gave her!

Blond with Green eye

Matching bag & dress

even matching flops!

But the next morning (when the tricycle was out of sight) She started playing with her new dollie! :D She even gave her a name! "Ermine". In French it sounds like "hRmeenn" which is close enough to Hermione which is now the new name of the doll. It's great to have a doll not called "Bébé"... makes it easier to know which one she wants! (She still call her zebra plush "dog" though!)

Why not a feeding after that?

It was great seeing her finally enjoy her gift. She loved looking into the bag for what she needed and placed back everything afterward!

She takes Hermione with her everywhere now, with the bottle of Juice. (yeah.... it was meant to be milk.... but Mariann decided it was juice) How great it was to see her litteraly dump the plastic bottle she had in her hand when she saw the one I made out of felt!
I've posted how to make one here.

I'll post the cake and birthday party pics tonight :) It's great what we can achieve with food coloring, plastic figurines, waffle sticks, turtles chocolate and green licorice!


  1. I love the doll's dress! And congratulations on your triumph, I bet it felt great even if you had to wait a day.

  2. HAHA I know all too well about the name thing. All the bears in our house are named TJ Bear and we have a ton of them lol.

    Mariann's new friend turned out perfect! Awesome job! Can't wait to see the cake. Hugs!

  3. THe doll looks so cute.
    You should check out my blog I just created my first figure by myself.
    Whenever I come on here I am always amazed at the crafts that you make.
    I hope that I can one day be able to make crafts as intense and as much as you do!
