I'm here. Really I am.

With all that I do, this poor little blog seems to be the neglected pet project that gets the last drop of attention I can muster up. So here is a quick update.

1. I am furiously sewing. Many dolls and clothing sets. See my Flickr page for a some new creations.

2. I am the lucky owner of a brand new set of brakes. Woo hoo! So that grinding sound won't going to go away on it's own? Really?

3. New wiper blades are an amazing thing. I didn't even know how crappy my last set of blades were till the new ones were installed. WOW!

4. 3 daughters living at home. 2 out of 3 have boyfriends. 1 ex-boyfriend is here daily. So I have gone from feeding 3 girls that eat like birds to 6 people. 3 boys! Do you how much boys can eat? Shouldn't they come with warning labels? Everyone has a job at least and pitches in. Now if the dish fairy would move in then we would be set.

5. I went to an actual dinner party this past Saturday. The table was set and everything! Hors d'oeuvres, wine, cloth napkins. Fun and interesting people. It was even off the island. Very cool indeed.

6. We don't have television. I love the fall line up of shows though. CSI, The Mentalist, House, Dirty Sexy Money (my favorite right now), Numb3rs, Criminal Minds....I could go on. The networks show full episodes on their websites. I can watch what I want, when I want. A few short commercials and no cable bill. An addict will always find a way!

Well, thanks for checking in. I will be posting a new batch of dolls on Etsy in a week or so. Take a peek and see if there is something on your holiday shopping list.

I know just how you feel.
I never seem to find the time to write a new post for the blog with all the things going on around my house and the dolls that I make, have to make and want to make.
...and yes, I know how much boys eat...LOL... I have 3 , 2 of them are teenagers and when they bring friend for meals as well then watch out. We have joked at times that we need a farm to feed the kids! :0)

I love Dirty Sexy Money too. Found this promo for next week's episode on Youtube. www.youtube.com/watch?v=wairHSzUof8&eurl=
Too bad there's not a show tomorrow night. I'm surprised Tripp Darling didn't just pay to have the debate moved to another night. ;)

LOL, I have 3 boys of my own so I know how much they eat (and boy can they eat, even the little one!)

I too have been busy making dolls. I clicked on your blog because I was interested in you piece on doll hair. I began making dolls in January and have made over 100 so far.h

I know what you mean with new brakes.. you don't know how bad they are until you get them fixed :)

As a mother of three boys...well men now...I can relate to your pantry woes! I think that they really must have hollow legs!

You must still be quite buried with all of the holiday orders and your own crafts. I just thought I'd let you know that I was thinking of you.
