I am moving to Kentucky on July 1, 2016! I shared previously, that I visited my daughter in Kentucky in May and I fell in love with the people there. So, I decided to move to be closer to my daughter. I am only taking my personal belongings in a used minivan that I just bought. I figured I can get used furniture at garage sales. My friend from junior high gave me an Aero bed for my new apartment (and a lot of other stuff! Thank you Lisa!). I am (sort of) in frantic mode. A week from tomorrow I am leaving everything I have known for many years. Exciting, but also scary. I would appreciate your prayers!
Now, a nice lady that just opened a consignment shop on the square in Woodstock, IL wanted all my dolls and animals that I have made!! What??!! She came and looked at them and loved all of them! So, they are going to be in the window of her shop! Awesome!! The store is “Trading Places”. It is right next door to “Material Things” and on the other side is “Down to Earth”. This is such a wonderful opportunity. I probably won’t be posting much until I get set up in Kentucky!
Here is a doll that I made for “Friends of Ellie’s Hats” Facebook group. “Ellie’s Hats” collects and distribute cute hats for children suffering from cancer. When Ellie was 4 years old she was diagnosed with cancer. She entered kindergarten and had to wear hats because she had lost her hair. Her wonderful teacher, Jay Coakley started collecting hats for Ellie. Ellie is now a second grader and healthy. So, the hats now go to children who aren’t so fortunate. If you would like to learn more or donate please go to https://ellieshats.org/. Jay wanted some dolls for the children. Since I make dolls I made one (so far!!) to donate. Her hair is a removable wig and she has her very own hat which she can wear with or without the wig. Here she is:
