From Lindsay--My dolls are Josefina and Felicity (Fless for short). My dolls like to give each other gifts, get together with friends, and Christmas carol.
From Pauline-- My dolls are always busy at Christmas. My doll shelves are very small, so the Christmas tree is really, half of a tree. I got it from dollar tree. I take off one of the tree stand legs (2 legs left) and bend all the branches to the sides. It fits flat at the back wall, and I have more room for dolls. Thanks for the gingerbread cookie craft, they were lots of fun to make.
