Let's FACE it...October Paper Lady is HERE!

I have so many little faces waiting for some bodies around here! Each one with their own personality and style. I love making dolls, and especially faces. I managed to finish up the pattern along with another completed dolly. Want to see her?

Scrubbing with HEART

Seems fall is just around the corner after a summer of open windows along with the hustle and bustle of the kids running in and out of the house for three months. It is time to address some dirt! I just had to pull out some yarn from RED HEART and work up some scrubbies. 

As the package says, it IS perfect for dishcloths. I made up a few along with the little circle scrubs to help in getting this place in tip top shape for the events leading up to my oldest daughters BIG DAY! There is nothing that works better than this yarn. It is like a washcloth, but also has the scrubbing power of a plastic scrubber. IT is the BEST of both worlds that is for sure!

Happy 160th Birthday!

September 7 marked Raggedy Ann's 160th 
I figured she was 160 because she was first written about in 1915...and was 59 years old at the time which the author John Gruelle mentions in the preface of his first book. I know her birthday is officially September 7, but as with all things these days, I am a bit behind.

WELCOME September Paper Lady

The next addition to our 2016 Collection of girls makes her debut today. I had such fun creating this one, and I couldn't believe we hadn't made a girl dressed in lavender yet. Lavender is the perfect color for September. As Samm was creating quite a beauty resembling Elizabeth Taylor.... I was creating my grandmother. She had black hair, and hazel eyes. Her favorite color was lavender.
I think I ended up with Corrie from Quilt She does look a bit like Grandma, but something about this pretty girl reminds me of Corrie. What do you think?
