Friday Feb. 29th ~ My son Brian, Jennifer and CDA, Sarah too

Wow is it cold here in NH.  A rather blustery day as Winnie the Pooh would say.

I am asking a big favor.  My son Brian is going to The Music Institue and has a scholorship opportunity.  If  you could go to this link, register to vote and confirm registration via email, you can vote once a day for the next 5 day.  It would mean so much to my son, 24 y.o. talented musician with a dream!  Thank you in advance!!!

I am so proud of my little Sarah.  I thought I'd share a couple wrestling pics.  She did so well last night.  I have to say, it is good to know she is  a lot togher than she looks!  She is in the maroon.  Wrestling a boy because there are rarely girls on the other teams.

I also wanted to remind everyone to check out CDA if you haven't done so yet.  (Cloth Doll Artistry).  So much going on and lots of classes and I know Kat Lees has one coming up I want to take : )

My Jennifer pattern is listed on FuzzB.  I am going to put it on Etsy too in a few minutes.  I am so proud of what Tara did for me with the photo editing and making it gorgeous.  She is awsome!  She is doing an ad for me too that I can't wait to share.  I am not good at marketing my pattern and am only just sending her my second one by Monday but I am so proud of them.  Jennifer makes a sweet rag doll with any face I think. I put a lot of thought into her construction.  She does come with lots and lots of instructions for her face work though.

Stay warm!!!






Hugs,
Kim

What a day yesterday.

I got my blog fixed up so nice and got notice that my Jennifer pattern pdf conversion was done.  So excited.  Kat Lee's daughter Tara did it for me and what a beautiful job she did.  I need to figure out price and list it as CD/E-pattern or paper.  I feel so professional. 

Tara is hoping to get a business going, logo's, banners, etc.  Very exciting.  Definetely has mom's creative gene : )   See link to her blog in my list.

So excited, My new CDA class commercial is up! Class starts tomorrow!

Here is my little Angel Baby Hanna pattern.  She also can play cupid as her accessories and cloud are all available in her pattern/class on Cloth Doll Artistry!  I love this site and classes are fun and so easy to use, patterns are in pdf format.  Angel Baby Hannah is a quick simple project and she is posable and fun.  My commercial is up on the site.  Please see my commercial link to the side here.  Yeah, I hope people will want to make my little Angel.  Hannah means gift from God.
Also, Please visit Cloth Doll Artistry:  http://www.clothdollartistry.com/ for those who have yet to see this gorgeous site.

Hi All,
I am posted pics of my girls sledding today.  They were taken by Tia, my 19 year old (20 next month).  Sarah is my 11 year old (12 next month). We had a snowstorm last night and there was no school today as it was Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as well. 
Look at those rosy cheeks : )
Hugs,

Kim

Maureen's Giveaway

Thanks Carla for posting the Sweet Meadow Farms giveaway.  What a cutie.  I love her pictures of her farm and I imagine she sees little raggedy's running all around the fields and meadows playing.  What an imagination she has.  I hadn't big realized she lost her email list so I am glad to know and resign up.

I am watching Ellen.  I love her.

There is no school here today in honor of the great Martin Luther King Jr. 

The kids would have been home anyway as we had a big snowstorm last night. 

Keeping the people of Haiti in my prayers.

Love & Hugs,
Kim

I am getting it!


I am so excited!  I figured out so much.  I would love to figure out wallpaper next but for now, I am  pretty happy to be blogging and have some links to my friends as I do check out lots of blogs but have always saved them under my favorites.  I am excited I figured out how to link to CDA commercials on you tube, yeah!!!        I finished my valentine project and she will be appearing soon...   I am hoping to start a couple new projects that are in my head and one kinda started.   It's a holiday here tomorrow and a big storm predicted so my guess is no dolly making time until later this week.   


Love & Hugs,
Kim
