i adored these flip dolls when i was a kid! i was so happy to see we wilsons do an easy tute to make one for my daughter to play with!

i wish i could spend a few hours in this shop! so gorgeous!

  1. That picture of Fred Savage and Danica Patrick reminds me... My daughter and I were at the book store the other day and she has books out for teens about math. One of them is called "How to Survive Middle School Math" the reason I remembered that one is my daughter is starting middle school this year. I flipped through and it is all geared toward the teen/Pre-teen with squiggles and doodles ont he pages... I thought it was kinda wonderful :)
