Sorry I have been MIA for waaay too long!!!!! I have been dealing with health issues...Not fun....I have also been getting to hold this little darling and keeping up with Jager!!!! Fun!!!!!  The worst part of being ill is that I can't have as much time with them as I would like!!!!!  I am still trying out meds trying to find one that will work without so much fuzziness of the mind.....I have missed everyone and haven't been around checking out your alls goodies lately...Hoping to do that soon!!!! Hope everyone is having some fun and getting ready to have more fun for the hollidays that are knocking on the door RIGHT NOW!!!!!   This year has come and just about gone and I really feel like it just started last week....where did it go!!!!  Well I did have lots of fun this past year so...not bad!!!!!

Kisses From Jager!!!!

These are the sweetest kisses you could ever hope to get and he almost always has one to give!!! He is the happiest, sweetest, smartest little boy EVER!!!! Of course I am his MO MO!!!!

Well!!! Being MO MO I loved his little curls... but I got out voted by Mommy!!!!  Turned out he looked so cute and his little cheeks even more pinchable than before if that is even possible!!!!
He looks a little unsure about all of this but is flirting with all the girls in the shoppe!!!!

He is giving the thumbs up for TRACTORS!!!! He loves tractors, trucks, fire engines and any kind of dirt digger he can find!!!!  If we could bottle his energy there would be enough that we would no longer have an energy crises!!!!  Hope you all had fun visiting and seeing the fun I have every day!!!!  hugs to all

I finally got her finished!!!  At first I was worried that I had not done this cute little pattern justice...but then a good dolly friend reminded me that a little of your own uniqueness is going to show up!!!!! I used the pattern but I loved it so much and knew how it looked... I did not use the face template... so she looks a little older than the original pattern did!!!!  The more she sits around looking at me the more I want to pick her up!!!  Now she has been sewn and stuffed since January but with the move and everything else going on she has just been waiting her turn!!!!! Hope everyone likes her!!!!  If you want to make one for yourself or a sweet friend... visit Jess of Little Dirt Lane!!!! Jess also has the sweetest little Prairie Doll pattern available on her site!!!! I am going to make her too!!!!  Whoopsie I almost forgot to tell you she is also giving away one of her cuties soon! So go check her out!!!!!!

Happy May 15th!!!!

Middle of May? What? Already? Time really does fly!!!  Wonder where it goes?!!!  When I was a child, summer seemed to last forever and back then winters seemed more fun!!! Over time the summers got shorter and winter became a time of gloom and doom..  not a fan of the long grey dreary months!!!  So I always try to enjoy the brighter months... we have had so much rain here that I thought I might never see the sun again... but here it is finally!!!! Yaa!!!! Yaa!!! Yaa!!! Above is a sneek peek at a dolly on its way out to a friend... it is a Dancing Moon original and come back soon when I can show a complete pic!!!!! Hope everyone is having some fun, some sun, and some good times!!!!!! Lots of hugs to all of you!!!!!

Had them sewed up and waiting to see what they where going to wear and what their faces would look like and what color their hair would be and until they let me know there they sit!!!!!  One is a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern and should wind up being a rag doll boy, one is a pattern by Jess of Little Dirt Lane!!!  And the last one is an original by Dancing Moon!!!!  She is almost done now she has her face and clothing but just needs a little somthing on her little head!!!! She just has not decided what quite yet, she is contrary!!!!! She is for a one to one swap so she is in disquise!!!!!  Hee hee  This will be my last post until Saturday Morning really early!!!!!!

Come and see what I did now!!!!!!

Hee hee!!!!!  What do you think of this one!!!!! She was for a swap in the prim group I am in!!!!! All Things Primitive!!!!! You can see the button on the right hand side of my blog!!!!!!  Not that I have done many swaps but this was the most fun I have ever had in one!!!!!!  It was called The Initially Yours Swap and what you had to do was take your partners initials and use to come up with your idea!!!!!! Well her initials were AJ  so I did An Angelic Angelfish with a Jolly Jellyfish and she made me a Crazy Carnival Cat with her pet Bald Bird!!!!!   Too cute!!!!   There were only size rules for mailing purposes but you were pretty much given freedom for all things go!!!!! Oh!!!! 
 You couldn't tell what you were making and they could not tell you what they wanted and there was no peeking till it arrived to your partner!!!!!  It was so much fun!!!!!  Pics of mine from Aimee J will be below!!!!!!!   Too cute!!!!!
