Grandmother to the American Girl Store in LA.
When I met with her in December she was working on another wonderful project, this time for her Grandmother she was restoring a doll and creating a wardrobe and accessories for her "Kit" doll she named Marilyn after her grandmother.
Lauren showed me the most amazing photo of her grandmother in the 1930's the photo that inspired this journey. In the photo her grandmother is wearing a jumpsuit one she replicated with an outfit she created for her grandmother's doll.
We had such a wonderful interview. We talked about our love of dolls, historical dolls their stories and Lauren's holiday project for her grandmother. She even brought "Marilyn" with her so I could see her progress.
I have asked Lauren to share the story of her journey with us, I hope you will be as inspired by her story as I was.
A big thank you to Lauren, Marilyn and Grandma Marilyn for this story, photos and friendship!
