Madelon's My Life As Dance Recital Dress and Mini Macarons

 Madelon's Doll is modeling a My Life As outfit and showing her mini Macraon craft today!
"Kirsten wears a My Life As Dance recital dress. The light purple and soft grey feel very Springlike, so she wears it as a special occasion dress. Note that the fit on the dress is tight (Kirsten is an older model and has more filling than other current AG dolls) and the shoes don't fit her feet. But for $9.97 the dress and headband work. On a slimmer doll the dress would fit looser and the shoes would cover the entire foot."
Using little dome stickers, I put the domes together and let a little of the white sticker show to make them look like Macarons.
 These bite sized doll treats match her outfit perfectly!
Thank you Madelon for this fun review and tutorial!

Dress Of The Month Club? Etsy Fun Find

About 5 years ago I thought about doing something like this doll dress a month club offered by farmgirlsetsy Farmgirl Treasures shop. I really like the idea of finding a new outfit and accessory for your doll in your mail box once a month. I was surprised to see this offer in my Etsy feed today.
Clearly this very talented Etsy shop has some stunning ready made outfits but with her listing you get to share with the designer your dolly lovers favorite colors and preferences. 
I thought this was such a fun idea that I had to share it and Farmgirl Tresures Etsy Shop. Click here to view this listing and shop.

Madelon's Tutorial For Dolly Crem Brulee


 Madelon shares with us her tutorial for making her dolls Crem Brulee.
"Since Grace's arrival I have been interested in French doll desserts. I wanted to make a Crem brûlée but didn't know how."


" My pink ceramic dish came from the clearance department in Michaels. I thought it could be my colorful ramekin. All I did was fill it with Elmer's glue and waited about five days for it to harden. When it was set I used gel crayons in yellow, orange and brown and a wet paintbrush for blending."
I love how this turned out Madelon! Crem Brulee is a favorite dessert of mine!
Madelon serves her doll a delightful tea and dessert! Thank you Madelon for sharing this tutorial with us today!
