It’s been a little over a week in our new home, but it feels as though we’ve been here forever. I am so in love with this place. John and I haven’t been able to wipe the grins off our faces since we arrived. I’ve met so many lovely people here, everyone is so welcoming. Yesterday we went into Duncan to see the Farmers Market and I was so impressed with the size and caliber of crafts, baking, soaps, etc. It was easily double the size of the Vancouver one and there weren’t any produce farmers there yet. Anyhow, I will try to attend one in the next month or so.

I’ve just finished 4 dolls. 2 are already on www.naturalpod.com for sale and the other 2 will most likely be up tomorrow ( my dig camera ran out of batteries!). I’ve made 2 large Bamboletta’s, one with curly red hair and one blonde, and 2 medium Bamboletta’s, one Asian girl and one brunette. I’m working on more blanket dolls this week, so I should have those up soon. The picture here is of the red headed large Bamboletta.

I took this picture this afternoon in our front garden. There were 3 deer together munching on new shoots. I’m sure this won’t be so cute in a few months when all my veggies are coming up!
I’m in the process of designing the garden right now. Our front gets loads more light, so I’m putting in our veggie patch there. (with deer fencing!). I’m thinking of hiring a landscape designer to help me map out my space. It was easy with our Vancouver house, our property was about 20 times smaller then this one. We also have a speptic field to deal with and I’m not too sure as to how you plant around that.

I’ve posted a few more dolls on www.naturalpod.com for sale. Now I’m working on finishing up 3 dolls for orders, then I’m starting on a ‘family’ of five African American dolls for another order..so cute. I can’t wait to see them all together. After this I will be doing a series of 6 dolls in a 12″ size. I love this size of doll to make. These dolls will be for sale through Natural Pod and I should have them done in about 3 weeks or so. I’m waiting for a shipment of new clothing to come in from my friend Lenna in Nova Scotia. New dresses, pants, skirts and tshirts for my larger 17″ Bamboletta. Once it’s in I’ll be sure to post a picture up. I’m in Vancouver next week and will be sure to make it to Fabricana (the cutest fabrics!). I’m going to stock up and ship some fabric off to Lenna to make up some new clothing for my mid size Bamboletta’s.

Mahar Dry Goods has posted 2 new dolls up on the site www.mahardrygoods.com There is a blonde baby and an Asian baby on there. Robert has such fantastic products, a super fun way to waste an hour!
