Easter Sunday

50 years ago I was born on Easter Sunday (as all Christians know, Easter falls on a different date each year, so my birthday also fell on Easter when I was 11, 22, 33, and will again when I am 121). Most years I get to celebrate two birthdays - on Easter Sunday and on my actual birth date. This year I felt compelled to create a fairy doll. She isn't quite finished, still needs a little makeup and work on her hair but here she is.
On my birth date, I'm having a party where everyone makes an art doll. The pattern I've chosen is Arley Berryhill's Art Deco Doll. My friend JoAnn and I will make the bodies but my other friends will get to decorate and clothe them as they please. Happy Easter everyone!

Happy birthday to you. That's interesting that Easter has fallen on your birthday so many times. My oldest daughter's birthday was on Easter in 1980, but won't be again until 2042.
