Amy's also created these new paper doll inspired dresses 
exclusively designed for Rubies! lovingly made into garlands and listed in my etsy shop
paper doll inspired dress garlands















aren't they sweet? 
what a great gift idea for a sweet little girl or a new baby on the way 
and personalized with a name & birth date
or with one of my most favorite verses ever...

"you are fearfully and wonderfully made" 
♥ psalm one-thirty nine. fourteen.

Amy has 4 beautiful children with another on the way...
