mer_mag Question for you mammas: if you were to get a doll like this #minimaggiemay one do you like the large huggable size or would you want something smaller? I think I love how big she is and so does miss M but not sure if we're the only ones? #mermag 2d
  •   funnyva1entine Haha, exactly what @victoria_cote11 said! 1d
  •   toniasarah I think there are so many smaller dolls that try to mimic the proportions of an actual baby. Being able to pal around with something more comparable to your own size is probably a breath of fresh air. 1d
  •   robyn.moriarty I know my baby girls would love that big-as-them doll! Both subjects are adorable!! 1d
  •   myrdiejill I had a huge handmade doll that I carried around for a few years as a child. Loved it. Of course, I put my own little tennis shoes on it to make it feel more real when I carried it 1d
  •   smither77 I grew up with a big cuddle sized cloth doll. Loved her. 1d
  •   lroyrose That doll is fantastic! 17h
  •   stacythiot @ksantistevan look at this feed! 2h
  •   ksantistevan @stacythiot I'm familiar. I pop in every now and then. Great feed. 2h

mer_mag Do you have your kids Halloween costumes figured out yet? Believe it or not I'm a last minuter so we're still deciding! (And my kids keep changing their minds!) This duct tape bird costume from my book Playful can actually be made fairly quickly. I love seeing that some of you have done it already! @elvishmarked mentioned how memorable it was staying up with her husband until 4am making it for her daughters party. (Jon and I can sooo relate!) Turned out super great!!! I love that she did the tights too! #playfultoysandcrafts photo by @nicolegerulat 3d
  •   elvishmarked @mer_mag Seriously, your book is perfect!!! I am in awe over how beautiful each and every toy and craft is. I want to make them all!!! Making this costume with my husband was totally a bonding experience, we get so busy and it was awesome to spend time together working on something fun! This lil bird was the hit of the party, and my daughter felt so special. Can't wait to see what everyone creates! You did so, so good lady! Thank you! 3d
  •   elvishmarked P. S. The tights are a must! Sooo cute! 3d
  •   mer_mag Oh thanks dear! @elvishmarked can't tell you how cool it is to see and hear this! 3d
  •   courtneysnowden I love this! 3d
  •   hapisha Your book is eye candy! I love all the styling you did and projects are kid-friendly...thank you! 3d
  •   mer_mag Thanks! @hapisha didn't @onemoremushroom and @houselarsbuilt do such a great job styling?! 3d
  •   elvishmarked It's true!! 3d

mer_mag Friends don't let friends leave a vintage elephant rocker at the flea market. Thanks @onemoremushroom for this amazing find! #handmadetoysarethebest 4d
  •   mer_mag Seriously! @cameracassidy whoever made it put a lot of love into it. The trunk is even hinged so it moves back and forth! 4d
  •   mer_mag Thanks dear! @koselicummings 4d
  •   longchicken I wonder if that's from one of the Sunset Magazine books from the 70s/early 80s. My dad made me a rocking lion around 1980 that looks the same except for the head! 4d
  •   mer_mag Oh so cool! @longchicken I wonder if I can find out 4d
  •   honyb5 Hello! I have your book- but didn't see this pattern in it. Can I buy it separately? @mer_mag 16h
  •   mer_mag Oh so fun! @honyb5 this is a new doll so she's not in the book. I don't have a pattern out for her as of now but stay tuned for future updates on her and others. Thanks! 15h

mer_mag As a girl my version of "princess" looked very much like this. I wanted a very tall pointy hat with a long and simple frock that I could run through fields in. If there was pink it was minimal and coral like. This simple fair maiden smock pattern, found in my new book PLAFUL: a Fun Projects to Make with + for Kids, is perfect for Halloween or hours of imaginary afternoons. It slips on and off over everyday play clothes. You can have your little one make the paper mâché crown and wand alongside you too! Photo by @nicolegerulat #playfultoysandcrafts 7d

mer_mag Another peek of more #mermag spooky projects from the archives. I love this time of year. (And I apparently love bats too as half my crafts for Halloween are bat-centric. Who knew!?) 1w

mer_mag I sort of have a love affair with lions...and masks...and paper...remember this one I made for @nationalgeokids a few years back? What's an animal that you can't get enough of? #nationgeokids 1w

mer_mag Now I just need to make an orange juice one for him and a mango juice one for little miss, put AJ in this one, and all my mother dreams will come true. #mermag 1w

mer_mag I've wanted to make juice box costumes for years (my boys initials are AJ and OJ and always wanted to play with the apple and orange juice thing) and finally made one this year. How cute is @sarahjanestudios little Addie here?! I think it would be so fun for a group of Tweens/teens to dress up as a group of various juices. Or adults even!

mer_mag Love this shot of my Halloween party printables from @mymessyroom. She used them in her shop window last year. Perfect idea! You can find them in my etsy shop: etsy.com/shop/tuesdaymourning 2w

mer_mag Had a fun Halloween photoshoot with @trishazemp, this little doll and her best buddy (both models in my book Playful - from the duct tape bird costume shoot). Can't wait to share more! #lovelylittlemodel 2w

mer_mag I wanted to make her a doll that was big enough to give swishy cuddles too (and one that was easier for me to make clothes for - I'm no good at microscopic sewing). I sort of patterned her after #minimaggiemay so we call her Maggie and want to make her a friend - maybe after #francocornelius? 2w

mer_mag I tried my hand at making a house cake. It's LESS than perfect (give me a box and tape or wood and paint and I'll give you a cute house but cake and frosting is a whole new ballgame) but it did taste good and little miss loved it. So there's that. 2w

mer_mag She wore the crown (inspired by mine from my book Playful) for about two minutes. And didn't Jon do such a good job making it? Birthday party pics and recap now up on the blog. #playfullymade 2w

mer_mag Had a lovely day full of renewal and re-dedication. We also had our little family party for this birthday girl today. She's brought so much joy and such a new dynamic to our family. She's so unique just like her sweet heart conjoined toes. (A favorite trait of hers we all love so much!) I'll post more party pics on the blog tomorrow. #luckytohavethisone #babynomore #okstillmybaby 2w

mer_mag Another great Playful signing and craft afternoon! Thanks to all who came out. This little dear insisted on making three masks and sat down in the middle of @gapatuniversitymall to go through the whole book. I love it! And I loved seeing so many friends such as Melissa here. #playfultoysandcrafts 2w
