Recently my lovely friend and co-worker, Chelsie, started The Phina Project... a student's attempt to craft her way through college. She attends the Art Institute of Colorado in the Design Management program as a Graphic Design major and Photography minor. I would say she is a pretty talented lady and when she first told me about the project I was super supportive. And then when she told me about the dolls she was making and I saw them on her blog I was amazed. I loved them and immediately I knew I had to have her make one of me and Matt.

I love all the details she included especially our tattoos, Matt's camera and our glasses. My favorite part might just be Matt's hair and beard. I love it! Unfortunately, I cut my hair after she started making the dolls. It will be long again someday, I'm sure. Read more about the making of the dolls here. The dolls are now hanging out in our living room on our new shelf from IKEA.

The making of these dolls came at a perfect time. Our 4-year wedding anniversary is on Thursday! So in honor of that here is some "stuffed love."
