First off I have to say how much I LOVE this toy I got for Ben. We originally bought it for him as a birthday present but he was a tad too young for it a few months ago. Yesterday he was telling me about this contraption that he built, he’s really into contraptions lately. So, I brought this out as a ‘ it’s Thrusday present!!’  and he played with it for 3 straight hours. 3! Yes 3!  It’s a bit pricey but I am telling you it’s worth every penny. It’s huge and so incredibly well built. I know that I’ve gone on about Brian at Countree Toy Shoppe before and I swear that I’m not related to him. This marble run is up there with the Like a Bike, which is Ben’s most favorite thing in the world. This too gets so much play out of it and is so beautifully built.


I finished up a batch of new gals today. There are some for Natural Pod that should be up in the next day or two. Two on Etsy (Ellia has sold) and a few for Trendy Tots in Duncan. I’m working next week on a few more for Natural Pod and some custom work that I have to get caught up on. I just did a doll for a celebrity but I don’t want to say who because I don’t think I can. I remember a story about this eyebrow guy who said that he did Madonna’s eyebrows and he never actually did her eyebrows. She sued him. So it’s not like I didn’t make the doll, but I don’t want to go around saying that this person has my doll. I mean who really cares? Kid’s are kids.  I feel bad for celebrities, it’s really like you make a deal with the devil now when you enter into that kind of life. I don’t feel too bad, but kind of guilty bad. I do take secret thrills out of what Angelina is doing, only because I think she is a pretty neat lady. All that charity work, kids and Brad . What the heck am I talking about? I’m so tired.

We’ve really been chatting about moving. It won’t happen for a few years. This is how I operate, I like long term planning and goals- I’m such a Virgo. Living off the land, animals and dolls.. sounds pretty dreamy to me.  John’s talking about going off the grid, that’s a little too intense for me. God, a month ago the man was against chickens and now he wants away from ‘the man’. What have I done to him?

    I understand you can’t say who the celebrity is, but of course I’m dying to know!!! Will I see a picture on Perez soon of a little girl with a Bamboletta? 🙂
    I’m married to a Virgo btw, and I never knew about how much they love long term planning. I should pay attention more! Although we did talk about saving money to also make a big move in about 5 yrs, and that was his idea. Hmmm…

    I totally understand the celebrity thing too, although I would secretly want to scream it from the rooftops! That is pretty cool. I am just happy that “regular” people think my dolls are pretty cool! Congrats

    How goes the chickens?

    No Perez I’m afraid 🙂 Well, maybe.. who knows? Us Virgos love long term planning, oh god it makes me so happy. researching is my favorite!
    Leanna- no chickens yet. we just bought some plans for the coop and my friend is hooking us up with the Banties. I’m a tad nervous about building a coop with John. I love my man but he has a hard time putting ikea together. it’s always the alan key’s fault.
