Kohanna's Sun Kimono

WOW! I've been gone a long time. Sorry about that guys! The flu hit my house like a hammer and we're just now really getting over it all! But everyone is doing well and I finally had the time and energy to take some pictures. I have a ton of stuff to show you guys from Christmas and my birthday and I planned to take the whole of January to do that but I think it's going to spill over into February a bit. I'm sure you all won't mind. Let's jump right in shall we?

Carpatina actually sells some of their products through Amazon. Lucky for me I got plenty of Amazon gift cards this year! So I purchased two outfits; the Sun Kimono for Kohanna and the Tudor dress for Matilda.

They both came in a slightly battered, white envelope.

Extra Special Grace

If you are a frequent visitor of the AG Facebook page, you will remember that back around February/March 2013 there was a huge amount of spam (I'm sorry but when it gets to that level of annoying it's spam) about people wanting AG to create a doll with Down Syndrome. I didn't really want them to but that's because I'm 99% sure they would mess it up, but through that whole mess I found Connie Feda and this website. Connie has a daughter with Downs, you can read all about their story here but to recap for you; when her daughter was about nine she (the daughter)  noticed that there were no dolls that looked like her. So Connie set out to make one, and that is how you make a difference in the world people!

By the time I found out about Connie and her mission she already had a doll artist on the case and she had a few pictures. I saw this one:
totally stolen from google!
And I fell in love.
