Happy New Year everyone!! This year's resolution is to get off my crafty butt, re-organize my craftroom and work on my blog!! I believe there are two types of crafters. Those who are neat, tidy, totally organized and never purchase more craft stuff than they need. Then there's my type. Chronically disorganized, always has 20 projects on the go that may or may not ever see completion, bags of buttons and baubles all over the floor and always scrambles but works well under pressure to complete deadlines! This is MY year!! A fresh start, I can do it!!
I thought I'd start the year with a little blog tribute. My mother, who is a robust and healthy 76 year old life long crafter, lives in a nanny-flat attached to our home. We bought her an American Girl doll of her own for Christmas this year. She'd had her eye on one ever since our neighbour came over to show off her doll collection, all sporting handmade outfits, this past fall. Meet 'Betsy'. Mom decided to dress her in a 1940's style, similar to what children and dolls wore when she was little. I think she's doing an amazing job!!
I was a figure skater as a young girl and Betsy now has her very own skating outfit! The skates were in Mom's stocking and she looked like a little kid when she opened them!!
