So, cruising the interwebs for new ideas for art class (I homeschool my youngest child), I stumbled across Kokeshi dolls. Super cute! And I thought, hey... who cares about art class, I want to make one!



I found the idea here  http://www.princetonol.com/groups/iad/Files/Cathy-Japan.htm, but wanted a more modern looking one, since this will be a gift for my niece and she likes pink. Lots of pink. But then, she's 4. Fortunately, she is beyond the 'putting everything in her mouth' stage, since the doll is very small - just 2 1/4 inches tall, and 3/4 inch diameter.

Tons of potential for mini-crafty-goodness here! Doing an image search on Google found all kinds of neat kokeshi dolls - Star Wars, ninjas, different professions, etc. My detail painting is rusty, but since the little wooden pieces I bought are relatively inexpensive, I can practice! =)

I've never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.
