I made this cute matryoshka doll, which is a Ukrainian nesting doll. It took me about seven months (!) to complete, from sketching to varnishing.

I themed it after Japan, because I love Japan.

(geisha doll, mount fuji + cherry blossom trees, sumo wrestler, totoro and two small tick boxes saying “yes” and “no” in english and japanese)

On the bottoms, a secret message:

I presented this to Mike three weeks ago… and he said yes.

Sorry it took so long to share the news. I didn’t want to let the cat out of the bag before certain people were told, but now word is finally getting out.

I will post details on the craft project soon.

    And I mispelt “two”. I meant “Congrats you two” which now that I read it doesn’t make much sense. Oh well. Congrats 🙂
