My dear husband surprised me for my birthday- and gave me a sweet Momoko! I have wanted one of these dolls for quite awhile- but- other things have always come first. I feel so spoiled!
A wonderful friend sent me a tiny stuffed kitty that reminds me of my dear departed Gracie - so I had some fun with Kitty and Momo and thought I would share here :)
There is a lot for me to do these days and I will not be able to keep up here as I would like. I had some plans that will have to wait.
When my brother and I arrived in California and went into our Mom's home- we found that she was not just a pack rat, she was a hoarder. We had not been allowed inside of her home for what we now realise is about 25 years.
There is some major, major cleaning that needs doing. So once a week we shoot over the California state line and head for Mom's and spend 2 days cleaning.
It is daunting and there is no other way. Everything needs to be gone through a piece at a time because of the way she pack ratted and hoarded.
There was no working plumbing the first 2 times we were there. My brother has had his work cut out for him. I am grateful he is so handy.
All of this means I have little extra time to spend here.
In future I will come back as I am able and do some small entries.
I purchased a pattern from a seller on etsy for making clothes for Monster High boys and thought it might be good to document making a piece of clothing from start to finish from her patterns.
There are also 2 custom dolls sitting in their work bins looking at me with pleading faces to get finished. If I manage to pick either one up and work on her, I will document what I do and put up what I can here.
DRAWINGS: Instead of monthly, I am going to do them every other month. There will not be a drawing for February- but there will be for March- and- every comment you make in Feb. and March will become entries for the March drawing- so just say Hi :) or whatever and I will keep that going- because its fun for me to do!
Thanks Again for the thoughtful comments about my Mom's passing :)
