How to hear 'best gift ever' from your kid's mouth...

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

No joke. I garnered myself a sweet 'mother of the year' status (short lived after I told her to clean her room - but still real good) on Christmas morning. I gifted my 7 year old daughter a custom softie of her own drawing. I'm sure you have all seen custom softies around the web...but let me tell you, the reaction was pure golden and my experience with it all was fantastic. That is thanks to softie maker extraordinaire Kathy from The Fruitful Vine.  K had made a special picture over a year ago that we both loved. I scanned and sent in the image to Kathy and some extra details to help and within a week or so I had a custom softie! I couldn't believe my own reaction to it, it was identical to the photo. She literally brought my child's drawing to life. I could see the love and care put into this little softie that when I first held it I actually got choked up! So if you want to get 'best gift ever' status, I highly recommend this treat for one of your little ones. Kathy's talent is undeniable and her attention to detail is amazing. She really brings your child's drawings to life. I know both K & I will love this little Indian princess for a very long time.
I framed K's picture for her nightstand and her Indian princess lives right beside it. Look at the detail people!! The bindi, necklace, bangles and lipstick...adorable.
K loving her doll while her little brother is doing some sort of Batman move for the camera.
I can't get over that face. I love this doll (it makes me want to design my own little softie!) So if you have a birthday coming up or something and require an awesome gift - I highly recommend Kathy over at The Fruitful Vine. She will literally capture a special moment in time.  Once my son actually sits down and draws something...I'll be calling Kathy once again!

Oh my goodness, this is incredible! I think your daughter should start her own doll line. :) Kathy did an incredible job.
