I just finished another doll. This time Kaylie wanted her very own doll, humm, wonder if she knows that she is a doll too? Lol
This one is also a little larger doll than I normally do - she is 14 1/2 inches and her little one is 7 1/2 inches. This will probably be my last one for at least two weeks. I have three custom orders to start working on and next week I am going to try and tackle making some tamales. This will be my very first time doing it on my own! Wish me luck! My husband's mom use to make them every year right before Christmas. They were delish! The whole family use to help, but the secret is in the meat filling and the masa. For those who might not know what masa is - I guess you could say it's the crust that holds the meat. She would prepare the meat filling and masa ahead of time and next day we would help spread the masa on the corn husks and then fill it with the meat filling (pork). I know that it might sound a little complicated and it is a lot of work - but I hope to keep the tradition going. Who knows - maybe one day my granddaughter will want to help me! Wish me luck!
Have a great weekend!
