Oh Anna Maria Horner...you have captured my heart!


Anna Maria Horner has designed the most wonderful and inspiring fabrics. This is the first time I want to buy an entire collection. Little Folks fabrics are going to be the highlight fabrics for my doll clothing and quilts for next year. Please don't tire of them as they make my heart sing!

So much yummy happening!

So I have had to resort to making lists. This will please my mom immensely no doubt. It's not that I am opposed to list making. I am just not a natural. Dwayne and my dear mother have it down to a science.

My current lists include:

Custom doll orders. I actually hand wrote them all down instead of just keeping them on the computer. It is so different seeing them on paper. Me likey!

Vacation. Things to pack. Route. Hotel. How many bookstores can we find. Restaurants. John and Kelly time. Mount St. Helens on the way home.

Moving. Not so much fun. The order of progression. Utilities. What goes to what room. What goes to the thrift store, the dump and what goes with us.

Wedding plans. Just too much fun! Guests, dress ideas, favors, flowers, food, decoration, music, cakes, rings, etc.... Dwayne has encouraged me to make this as fun and stress free as possible and to keep within a generous budget. I love him for a myriad of reasons and he just keeps delighting me.

After the move I will be making dolls and clothes for my Etsy shop. I will stock as many as possible in those weeks before Christmas. If you are hoping for a specific hair/eye color combination send me a note and I can probably accommodate you. I have one last custom slot in my Etsy shop right now. This is the last one of the year.

Here is dear Willy and some shoe deliciousness:

***We've set a date***

Dwayne and I have set the wedding date. May 15, 2010. The island is so beautiful year around but especially as Spring goes into Summer. My dear friend Kelly is "The Wedding Planner". He is taking his job very seriously as my e-mail inbox can attest to. He is researching locations, dresses, music.....etc. He will be throwing a shower for me as well. My new job is to reign Kelly in and stay within our budget. Wish me luck!

Baby got new shoes + An announcement

I love wool felt. 100% wool felt. I received my felt shipment from de Witte Engle and I am wallowing in all it's yummyness. I am so so busy filling orders but I sneak a moment now and then to fulfill a creative urge. I must make doll shoes! I have so many ideas rolling around in my head. Here are a few:

There are a few available in my Etsy shop. There is also a very sweet doll named Clementine that is hoping to find her new home very soon. I have added a pair of shoes and a wool jacket for her to wear on her travels.

Now...an announcement. That beautiful man in my post below has asked me to marry him. I, of course, have agreed! I have waited a lifetime to meet a man like Dwayne. I have come a long way from my "grow a new husband" days. Yeah!
