The front displays a beautiful picture of Santa outside.” Sara Massa: “Annie and Natalie (Barbie Fashionistas on MTM bodies) celebrate their Christmas under the tree wearing their favorite Christmas sweaters.” Sharyn Gr: “Affordable Designs Leeann dolls join Santa and his elves in the workshop to get ready for Christmas Eve.” Sara Ahmed: “Hi! My name is Sara, I’m 28 years old and I’m from Italy. In this pic there are two of my dolls: my Icy doll Anne and my Barbie Made to Move. There is also a mouse of Maileg, a Danish brand. She is so cute and she is a princess. In the background there is my Christmas tree. With all these different characters I want to spread a message of diversity, and also everyone can feel happy and celebrate Christmas.” Rose Engelhardt: “Ideal’s Mary Heartline going toy shopping for Christmas.” Rose Engelhardt: “Madame Alexander’s Beth of Little Women going to church on Christmas. Rose Engelhardt: “Ideal’s Tony doll. She is attending a Christmas patio party.” Robyn Leech: “Waiting under the Christmas tree hoping to get a glimpse of Santa!” Nadine Bandler: “MaskCat Gladys in a Santa outfit with assorted dollhouse miniatures.” Maria Tereza Cravo Panichi: “The doll in is dressed for the 2020 Christmas party; she is made of fabric using the needle-sculpture technique. Her name is Cristina.” Mary Basden: “Kish dolls going to Grandma’s for Christmas.” Jay Searle: “Soom Supergem Saiph wearing Phantom Creation.” Leanne Cresante: “It was a long trip from an auction in France to America. However, Evette was determined to meet her long-lost sister, Collette. Both girls are from the Steiner family, about the same size and very happy to be ‘Home for the Holidays.’” Donna Bell: “My Barbie is watching a Xmas special for the holidays, with her cocoa and cookies (and a greeting card from Ken). The little TV is actually a music box — a little train revolves around inside it. Cool gift from years ago.” Carol Quantock: “These Tonner girls are enjoying their holiday house party with their families. Note the menorah on the mantelpiece as well as the tiny carolers. There’s pizza, wine, soda, cookies, and cake for the guests.” April Norton: “Sashka (left) is a 10-inch resin BJD by Dolly Hugs Crew. On the right is a 13-inch resin Little Darling BJD with inset eyes sculpted by Dianna Effner. I did her face-up and at the same time treated and painted her inset eyes. Both of them wear the most amazing original hand-knitted Christmas outfits with lots of beading and accents by the talented Tamara Lipskaya.”
