"The destiny of nations lies far more in the hands of women, the mothers, than in the possessors of power, or those of innovators who for the most part do not understand themselves. We must cultivate women, who are the educators of the human race, else the new generation cannot accomplish its task."

A Dolly Tea Party

Today was quite a special day! My friend Lynn and I are huge Downton Abby fans so when I decided to make some DA inspired outfits for my girls one thing lead to another and we decided to have a full on tea party for them all decked out in their finery. Each of the girls is wearing a totally unique outfit with hats or hair accessories and most of them have beautiful handmade jewels, created by Lynn and some of them even have little purses that my mom made for them. Then Lynn who is a pastry chef, created a beautiful tea for the girls complete with tiny scones, tea sandwiches, itty bitty petit' fours, tiny cookies and chocolates...OMG, can it get any cuter??? Then we decided to have the party have an easter theme because Easter is right around the corner and each of the girls received a little gift basket with tiny jelly beans, a little white fluffy bunny, and chocolates...I told you we went all out!!!
All of these outfit will be listed in my Etsy shop over the next week or so along with lots of other more traditional Easter/Spring dresses for your dolls.

I'm having way too much fun with my girls . . .

I'm Still Here!

Dear Friends,

I so apologize for my lack of attention to my blog but life has just been so hectic lately most of the time I don't know if I'm coming or going, but it's all good! However, I did want to give you all a little update on things around here. My new little venture of Olivia & Bella has been doing fantastic. I have been sewing like crazy and my little creations fly out the door as quickly as I make them. I have also ventured into the world of dolly making and I have been having an absolute learning new techniques and experimenting with making these amazing little people. Now, keep in mind my dolls are testers and I have a lot more to perfect. I will be heading to Florida later this month for a dolly making workshop with my dear friend Debbie. I can't wait and I hope to learn a lot from a professional doll maker.

 This is Naomi . . . my first little girl
 This is Willow . . . my second little girl

I also wanted to let my international friends know that I will be featured in the British magazine Sew which hits the newsstands tomorrow morning. I am so excited and thrilled to be introduced to a whole new group of sewing mamas and grandma's.

So, as you can see I've been just a little busy around here. Hope you all are well!
