Vacation! Day 2!

Day One was mostly a rest day, but on day 2 my mom and I spent at least half the day trying to decide whether to quilt or make dolls! I have brought my doll making things with me to make some dolls that I have been wanting to make for quite some time and had not because I was so busy paper crafting instead. Well, finally we decided on the dolls! I had brought a couple books with me that also had a couple "doll" patterns in them, so Mom decided she wanted to make one of them. I traced out the patterns for her, she cut them out, and sewed one up! I do not have my camera with me, but I will get a picture for you to see it somehow because it is one of those things you just have to see to believe! ROFL!!! Words just cannot describe this work of art! So, when I get the pics I will post them on this post right here for all to see! Now don't get me wrong! The finished doll body is not my mother's doing but it was the pattern we used! You really must see this to believe it! Today, Day 3, I am going to draw out my own pattern for mom and myself to use. We'll see how that turns out! Have a great day everyone! And wow! I really miss paper crafting already! Hugzies! Julie

I Am American and this is My Country!

I believe in my heart that the anger and revolt that people are voicing in the social media groups, in protest marches, in truly very small ways are simply trying to convey as do I the words that here to follow. Though extremely simple, I believe it is how most of us truly feel.
My heart feels such great sadness and such heaviness to see this country, the place that I have called home for all of my life, turn into a place that I can barely recognize any more. Considering that true, honest, hard working, Americans have sacrificed so very much for the freedoms that we see being taken from us by our own government, no less, on a daily basis. And with each new election of government offices we find ourselves governed by those who work against the further building of this once great, unified nation, but rather they only seek to tear down all that is good, and honorable. Stomping under their own feet the blood, sweat, agonizing tears of loss that help to build this country to the great nat…


I have for so very long, a few years now, wanted to make a doll house album. I have talked about it, drawn out ideas and designs for it, and mulled over it for quite some time. The only other project that took me this long to pull together was my first Recipe Album!! Yesterday, I decided on a design and today a theme! Two elements one absolutely must possess in order to create any thing at all! I was thinking I should like to have my book designed so that I can have interactive paper dolls in it. I thought that I would design them as well, but as I glanced through an old 2009 desk calendar by Mary Engelbreit, I decided I would try to use the many paper dolls I have in the magazines I have collected of hers over the years instead. I think I have found a suitable paper line as a base to start. So! Onward and upward I go in true Mary Engelbreit fashion!!
Wish me luck!
