merchandise now available!
Who would have thought it would go on this long? Certainly not me!
I have had a very trying Spring, Summer, and Fall.
My mother’s husband died in early July.
I spent the next three months taking care of my mother,
cleaning out their condo, and finding a nursing home.
I had no idea that getting someone into a nursing home
would be so difficult.
Anyway, I have been going back and forth between
here and Virginia Beach every few weeks for the past 2 months.
With all that is going on, Steve and I have pushed our retirement a year.
I don’t know how I managed to put this issue together...
while keeping the sales list updated.
But it is done now, and I think this is a very fun issue.
I have done something I have never done before: using paper doll ads.
I was in a paper doll Christmas cards exchange for 6 years -
and am sharing some of the creative work of so many paper doll enthusiasts.
I haven’t put names on every card, but will be happy to provide them if
someone needs to know. I apologize beforehand to all the artists.
I sincerely thank everyone for their ordering of paper dolls.
In the New Year, I will be putting many of my favorites on the sales list.
Even with all the sales, I still have a room full of paper dolls.
I am beginning to see a few empty shelves, though not nearly enough.
I’m wishing everyone a happy holiday season,
and hopes for a better new year!
that said, let’s
play paper dolls!
Love from Lone
