Craft friends...anyone do Fairy Gardens? (pic)
I am ready to start a fairy garden for (and with) my 8 year old granddaughter, Hannah. She wants "tiny" fairies and I have no idea what sizes they come in, or size of container or anything. I've seen a bunch of photos online, and I'm overwhelm... Read more
A real (low carb) breakfast (pic)
Unlike yesterday's big breakfast blog, this one is for real...and for real it is yummy for low carbers!

48 reasons why I haven't been on Spark for a while! (pics)
My husband and I drove in to St. Louis Children's Hospital and delivered 48 dolls I made...which is about ALL I'd been doing for quite some time. Few of the dolls are for babies and toddlers who are hospitalized.

Working moms, how do you ever do it?
It's been way too many years since I had kids to take care of while I worked full time as well. Good for you moms who take care of jobs, home, kids AND trying to control your food intake in all of it.
We are the temp home to our son's fami... Read more
So maybe I didn't count my nutrition values this weekend.
but I certainly got a lot of exercise! Had the smallest grandchildren this weekend while parents were out of town. We went to parks, playgrounds, a village Abe Lincoln lived in (2-1/2 hours of walking). Must've gone up and down the stairs 20 ... Read more
I nearly jumped out of my skin! (photo)
After talking a walk today, I approached the front door to my house, and started to brush away a small twig on the glass. It freaked me out when the tiny twig "branches" started to move! It was something I'd never seen before...a stick insect.... Read more
Thank you all...I have a winner!
I got some really good advice on the "boy" donations for the hospital, and I will likely use some of them when I have the time AND can afford the materials. But Sandy1969 came up with the winner....I'll make the boy dolls, but instead of them j... Read more
Help! I need some ideas here. (pic)

Chemo dolls for children w/Cancer (pics)
My sister knew my current project was making chemo dolls, and asked for one for a friend...4 years old and given a 20% chance to live a year ago. She's still in the fight. Then I sent a bunch of dolls to a hospital in STL, only to find out lat... Read more
Stepping way outside my comfort zone!
My husband has been told he MUST quit smoking (he's had many health issues because of smoking). And I know that I MUST lose weight (I'm back to where I cannot reach my shoes to tie, and it's a huge effort to walk my granddaughter to the bus, on... Read more
(pics) Valentine's Friends w/Dolls Sleepover party.
I am so tired. I could handle this much better 40 years ago, haha! But the girls had a great time, though they did not finally go to sleep until 1:20 a.m. AND one wanted mommy to pick her up at midnight, but she was satisfied if I would stay ... Read more
Can anyone help me with a doll beanie?
I'm definitely an amateur when it comes to sewing. My sewing is all simple things, mostly for my doll-making ministry...AND, if course, things for my granddaughter's dolls.
She is a Daisy Scout and I made her a "sort-of" uniform, but I can... Read more
