little doll

Although it may seem like PonyBoy Press has become some sort of Valentine blog, I assure you it has not - but, it does seem clear that I have gotten a bit swept away with the upcoming holiday. This little wooden doll is a cute valentine, especially if you were the one giving it and you were a girl with short brown hair.

In general I am in favor of the recent little wooden doll trend. I've always liked them. I also like some of the neat traditional German ones. I wish I had the skills to paint my own, but I am not that good at it.

If you have those skills, however, there are plenty of places on Etsy to get the blank wood forms, including the shop nakedpeggies who sells the Valentine Peggy shown here and also goosegrease.

It makes a unique gift. And speaking of gifts, the Valentines posts are not over. I am working on something that hopefully will work out. Stay tuned!

I love the valentine posts! yay!
because of my kind-of-recent breakup, valentine's day can be sad to think about. Making it about friends and crafting and talking about it with people makes me feel happier about it.

Yay, I am glad. I think it is *totally* about friends!

Oh, yes! I think you should. I would love to see them. I think they would be such neat personalized gifts.

Thank you so much for including my little doll here!
I would encourage ANYONE to start this hobby since it makes me giggle to paint each one!!
