Olivia's New Friend

 The door bell rings...Olivia comes running to the door to see who it is.
It's Pocahontas. She's come to stay with us.
Olivia's first doll...a first DisneyAnimator Doll. Smiles all around.

What this?

Her favorite question lately is...what this? She loves her puzzles and letters, 
that's for sure. It's all good because she's learning her ABC's.

Scentsational Season

Landon is holding a card made with a stamp set called Scentsational Season. The card smells like Peppersticks...the scent was created by using Scented Stampin' Emboss Powder. Way cool.

Too cool!

 Olivia is a character...she is too cool. Not to mention very colorful and sparkly too.
Landon wanted in on the action and put on his shades too.

Water Play

 Landon and Olivia love the water table I got them. Oh boy, did they have tons of fun splashing around. These pictures says it all.

Drizella from Cinderella

Cinderella's Step-Sister is likely to be the last Vinylmation designs that I will create.
I wish there was enough time in my work load to do more. Perhaps in the future.

Drizella is part of a Vinylmation Cinderella 3" Figure Set -- 5-pc. plus 1 1/2" Jaq and Gus
available at

This set is unique to me because every member of the Disney Store Creative Team had a part in design one or more pieces. So very cool.

Landon & Olivia Moments

Morning milk. 
You're probably thinking that I set up the two chairs for a photo op. 
Landon and Olivia did this on their own. For reals.
This morning they didn't want crayons. They wanted color pencils.
It was a good morning...they shared.
