Today Lillia and I took Julia, one of my handmade matryoshka dolls, to Bluewater in Kent for our first Toy Society drop!
back in October last year. The idea is that you make or buy a toy, then package it up and leave it in a public place for somebody to find. You put a note in with the toy so that the finder knows what is going on. I can imagine how I would feel if I found one, it would restore my faith in human nature, so I have wanted to do this for a long time but time just always seems against me. Last night though I packaged up Julia, cut out the note to go with her, popped her in a bag and got her all ready for her journey out into the world.
Then this morning hubby, Lillia and I drove to Bluewater for a spot of shopping and while we were there we found just the right spot. I had been thinking of leaving her in the baby change area but then we came across a family toilet cubicle, one of those big enough to house both parents, buggies, bears and screaming children.
And it was there that we left Julia.
You might notice that I have altered her mouth slightly. She was looking far too stern before so I made her look a little more friendly.
I do hope she has found a good home!
