Tania Nuñez, an NYC-based artist, has some very cute DIY paper dolls in her shop, InknJoy. I can picture creating a miniature paper theater and making stories with these quirky characters. These would make such fun gifts. I LOVE the dapper fox.
She also makes these exquisite hand-painted bracelets. I love the dusty purple and lime color palette.
And here is one of her paintings that I spotted on her website called On the Path. Looks like she is on a dream journey.
