Happy Saturday to You!

Hello to you!  It’s so nice to be back talking to you after only a couple of days.  I’d love to make this a habit…  When I last wrote we were having strong storms daily and very humid weather.  After much rain throughout the week, we woke yesterday to many of the streets flooded in the Chicago area.  My daughter is now commuting to a nearby (sort of) college and had to take some alternative streets; she allowed extra time.  While out on my walk, there was flooding where I’d never seen it before.  This morning, however, it’s a different story–there is a definite nip in the air; I think we’ve maybe started the transition between summer and fall.  Truthfully, I’m not sure I’m ready, are you?

Some exciting (for me) news is that last evening, I added my first (since February of 2018!) one-of-a-kind doll ensembles “Blossomy Sprinkles”, to my available pages.

Here is a little slideshow of the photos I took of this ensemble.

I now host my website through WordPress, not GoDaddy, so it’s a bit different finding the sales pages.  I hope it’s not too confusing.  The individual pages will highlight if you bring your cursor to the Available tab at the top of this blog.  Click on the ensemble’s title and you’ll be taken to the sales page.  To purchase, please fill out the contact form (like before); I will get your form promptly emailed to me.  Because of the high cost of international shipping and insurance it is still my policy to only ship within the U.S.  My apologies to all my international friends.  I appreciate your understanding, thank you.

I know I haven’t talked too much about this, but in case you were wondering, my health and healing journey has kept me away for so long; I am now well.  It is so good to be back, creating and sharing with you.  I don’t think I will be creating doll ensembles with the same vigor as I was doing before, but I will try to have new things to show you on a somewhat regular basis.  Also, if you enjoy seeing ‘in process’ photos and/or photos from my regular ‘ole life please let me know and I will include more of those types of photos and posts.

I thought this comparison would be fun to show you.  Lucy is on the left modeling “Blossomy Sprinkles” and Alice is on the right modeling “Flower Picking” from 2016.

And, the little cardigans…

And now, the dresses without the cardis…

Hope you enjoyed those.

Have a super Saturday my friends!  And thank you so much for sticking with me throughout my long journey!

Oh, almost forgot to mention–I will try to be back tomorrow morning with photos of Gina modeling her new ensemble.

    I wondered if your daughter was sticking closer to home. Commuting to college is an intro to the real world. So many commute to work here in CA. I can’t remember. Is she a junior? Our oldest lived at home while attending community college and saved a ton of money as well as working part time. But, that was a long time ago.
    I love seeing in progress photos and basically any of your fabulous photos. Bring them on. 🙂
    We’re in a hot spell, but expecting rain, first since May, on Monday. Tomorrow we’re celebrating youngest grands 4th birthday. They all just keep growing. 🙂

      Hi, Joy. It’s nice having her close and yes, it is like what most working people go through–traffic. She is a junior, yes. Thank you for enjoying my ramblings and random photos. I look forward to hearing from you–your support means a lot, Joy. ❤ It's amazing how fast they grow up. Really, can time just slow down a little bit…! Enjoy the birthday party!

    Hello!
    I’m so glad you are doing better. Your designs are beautiful. I purchased one of the sweater patterns, but haven’t tried it yet. Hoping to soon.

    Oh my, I feel bad for your Daughter Cindy trying to navigate alternative ways. It must be bad when you see flooding where it has not been . I am not totally ready for a cool down but I do like fall. Lucy and Alice are adorable in their ensembles . Your girls are always so pretty in what hard work you do for them. I am so happy you are back to full health. It was a long road for you but you are a fighter. May God continue to bless you and your family and I will keep you in my prayers . Have a nice night , Terri xo.
