i ♥ pearl's pegs . . .

I've been meaning to do this for a while now and today is as good a time as any, so here goes. And yes, it's a long post, lots of pictures, but I'll reward you for sticking with it to the end with a GIFTAWAY!

I wanted to share the amazing talents of my beautiful daughter.  She is a peg doll painter . . . 
Aren't these just the cutest of things? She's painted every Disney princess character there is!
Actually, she can paint pretty much anything. I adore this nursery rhyme set! And check out this set of Charlie Brown figures . . .
And the action figure heroes . . . 
I have a thing for Marvel! She's also done Star Wars and sports pegs, too.  Look at this fun set of college football pegs and see if you can guess the team!
Did you guess? Hint ... it's *not* my favorite college football team. LOL! I've gifted football pegs to both my bosses and they loved them!  But these are really the perfect toys for precious little hands . . .
Edith loves to play with the Nativity!
This is an absolutely beautiful set. I especially adore the cubby sheep and the camels that match the wise men! She also does a smaller unit of just the Holy Family. :)

The pegs are all hand-painted and non-toxic, so you don't have to worry about them going into mouths.  They're great for dollhouses or just imaginative play!  Joc created a set specifically for sensory bin use:
Perfect for toddlers who need busy play and enjoy the tactile activities.  Also perfect for learning colors! Edie will play for an hour with a bin like this, which is perfect for Joc as she's preparing a meal!

There's also a "Paint Your Own Pegs" kits she's put together, for artistic kiddos that like to do for themselves . . . 
Everything they need to paint their own peg family!  Pretty clever stuff!
Ellie certainly thought so ... she's pretty talented in her own right!  ♥

These make wonderful memory markers, too.  Joc does a LOT of custom painted peg dolls, especially of families (based off of photos/digital images) . . .
Isn't this a sweet little family of four?  Every time I see it, I want the mom's dress!  And what about this group of pretty ballerinas . . .
She does a lot of custom pegs of ballerinas to commemorate a recital!  Isn't that fun? My favorite is the little mousie from The Nutcracker!

She added ornaments to her repertoire this year, too.
I adore these! Of course, I also have a thing for snowmen!

If there are children or grandchildren (or great-grandchildren!) in your life that might enjoy some peg play--and I'll just go ahead and say it, who *wouldn't* enjoy some peg play?!--you can order from her Pearl's Pegs page on facebook or from her Pearl's Pegs account on Instagram.  It's fun to scroll through her IG and see all the fantastic photos!
I do have to caution that her Christmas orders are closed (so she can enjoy the season with her own family).  So NO new orders now, but she'll be taking new orders after January 10th!  

In the meantime, how about a giftaway?!
Jocelyn gifted me with two snowmen ornaments . . . one for me and one for YOU!   You have two chances to win.  The first chance is simple:  just leave me a comment on this post (you must leave me a way to contact you).  The second is to follow the link to Pearl's Peg on facebook or Instagram, and follow her on one of those two accounts.  Then leave me a comment telling me which one you followed, and under what name!  Easy-peasy! I'll leave this open until December 17th, then pick a winner and ship it quick, so you have it in time to put on your tree ... or in someone special's stocking!!

Ho ho ho!

Joc really is a fabulous painter! I’m impressed with all the tiny details. I scrolled thru her fb page (after following it, of course) and saw several adorable animals, including a bunny with big ears but Z would like to point out that there were no cats. Any chance that is changing? 😉

Those are all so very cute! I wish I had thought of this crafting idea when my kids or grands were small, but I could not have mastered her artistry. Love them all! gpc0[at]gmail[dot]com

Oh my goodness, I 'liked' her Facebook page and scrolled back a bit. I couldn't even decide what I liked best -- the ornaments are so cute, the nativity is perfect and (squee!) the sheep!!! I love the idea of having one made to commemorate a special event . . . I will be pondering what to order as I wait for January! Thanks for telling us about these adorable pegs! gpc0[at]gmail[dot[com

These are just adorable!! I am always on the look out for painting projects. I took tole painting classes years ago, and of course, had to buy a ton of paint, cause you always needed another color you didn't have. Thanks for sharing this wonderful project!!
