Although I have been creating items, not everything is worth blogging about.
I have a few special projects in the hopper, but for now I want to share my Rainyday Girl.
Found the digi on Etsy. and colored her with my Copic Markers.
I have a few girls who like to draw and color so these downloaded images are great for keeping them busy. Had to try my hand at it. They are fun, now to make her into a card.

Anesama ningyoo means "elder sister doll" in Japanese. There is a deep history to these paper dolls. In the Japanese feudal society, the common people were stuck within the social class in which they were born. These dolls were a way for young girls of the lower social classes to be a part of those other classes even if only through child's play. Most times, these anesama ningyoo were made by the elder sisters or women of the families. That is where the name originates. These dolls originally were made of various materials ranging from wood to rags. Eventually paper was used and chiyogami (Japanese paper covered with colorful patterns) allowed girls to have a wider array of kimonos for their dolls.
