So – I’m starting my Friday uploading this week. What this means is that I will post all dolls for sale on Fridays, sometime in the afternoon. I still have loads of clothing that I have to list and loads more coming. Reggie just emailed me saying that she’d just finished up over 50 (!) dresses for us! I’ve also got more kimono sets coming up too.
And – I just ordered in a bolt of this fabric – is this not to die for? I loved unicorns when I was little, this just brings back all those memories. I’ve mentioned this before but I really try to find fabrics that have both style and invoke a child’s imagination. That Heather Ross, she is so awesome. I think I’d freak out if I ever met her. I want to load more fabric pictures but for some reason my blog site has been acting all weird since I switched over.
It’s Ben’s birthday this weekend. My parents, Nonna and my sister are coming over for the weekend for the celebration. We are planning a treasure hunt to end at our new favorite beach. John will go there in the early morning to bury a rubbermaid bin full of ‘treasure’. I have had such a hard time finding him stuff for his birthday. Five is a hard age to buy for when you have a real aversion to small plastic parts. I went into Toys R Us yesterday and was shocked and really dissapointed at what is being sold to kids these days. I followed a dad with his 4 and 5 year old sons, seeing if I could pick up some hints from them as to what to buy B. Army guys, Transformers (which I have to admit I LOVED when I was a kid – Robots in Disguise!), just so much fighting stuff. What the heck are we doing to our kids? Don’t even get me started on all the plastic packaging involved. My heart was a little heavier when I left there. I know I shouldn’t have kept it so last minute, but with the kids getting sick, his birthday caught me by surprise. I could always make him a doll. Ha!
