Thanks to all the people who have emailed me wondering if I was ok! Thanks, yes, sorry! I guess I ended up taking an unplanned blog sabbatical there. I've been so busy with family, end of the year school stuff, the kids' sports and activities and life that I've had no time to read blogs, pin pins, take photos, make anything. But two weeks til Summer break and I have big plans. Big plans to schedule nothing and do less. Hopefully then I can attach the doll limbs that have fallen under the desk and sew faces on poor dolls who have been abandoned at the side of the sofa. I also am dying to hit a used book sale, an estate sale, garage sale, anything! Also many garden projects I can't wait to tackle. All of which are excellently bloggable activities. So I will see you all soon!
Is it weird to say "holy cow. that's cute!" over something I designed? Well, I can't help it. She's so PINK! Here's my newest doll at The Land of Nod, Agnes. They reproduced this awesome folky vintage fabric for her body and her bun is just exactly right. The sample they sent me has just the sweetest face. She's a cutie for sure.
Sorry blog, I know I'm a bad friend. I don't mean to be ignoring you. Things have been happening but they don't really seem very craftblog worthy. We cleaned out our soggy basement after our town was flooded. I put some kale on my taco in an attempt to eat healthier. Photographic proof...
It will not get warm and Spring is crawling along. I can't even look at those Portland blogs because I'm so envious of their Spring. We have had a few warmish days and used the opportunity to clean up the yard a bit. My kids will wear summer clothes when it's 50 like all good Chicagoland children.
And on the craft front.. here is April's doll. I'll get her all put together and up for a giveaway soon.
Phoebe does not walk anywhere. She skips or dances or leaps. I envy her energy. I'm willing myself to get up from my coffee and do some Spring clean up in the yard. Maybe if I skip out of here. Maybe the skipping creates the energy, not the other way around?
