Your Own Personal Wooden Family

Family Nesting Dolls, at auto.
This is a wonderful gift idea...if you're comfortably within in a certain tax bracket (if you know what I'm sayin').

Illustrator Trisha Krauss works from your family photos to design and paint a set of wooden Matrioska (or nesting) dolls that resemble your clan. This one-of-a-kind accessory doesn't come cheap though. A set of three costs $800 and Krauss will paint up to five per family.

Here's to hoping you haven't spent all of that Stimulus check yet.

ooh. does anyone sell blank Matrioska dolls, because my cheap ass is just going to paint his family himself.

They do! Lots of different sizes & shapes HERE.

Great idea though. Can't wait to see the photos!
