Deb I also must thank you for the beautiful Christmas box and the chocolate yum. I hope that you will enjoy your gift as well. This was the first Christmas I have had in about six years and it was a Beautiful one. On Saturday I had a few friends come by we sat around and talk, ate and sang songs and just had a wonderful time. The funny part was just before everyone got here the power went out in our neighborhood and the last of the cooking I was doing had just finished in a nic of time whew. So for about an hour we all sat around in candle light and start talking about how in the olden days this was have been the way it was. Thank God for electricity lol it was still dark to me even with all the candles I had going. The pictures you see are not very good and as I stated my camera just doesn't want cooperate at the moment. The doll was one that an 84 year old lady called me up and ask would I make a doll for her great grand daughter, I almost said no it was at a time I really wasn't into making dolls or doing pretty much of anything but I went ahead and gave it a shot and she just loved it. Sam she wanted pink and as you can see her dress is done in polka dots lol. I really hate my camera didn't take good pictures of it and at the time I took this one the lady was here at the house to pick it up and so I just hurried up and took a picture. But after making that doll it gave me new ideas on doing other ones. I have never made a doll for a child before and don't really know if I will again but as they say never say never. I actually have done another doll since that one and she looks even better than that one. I love my dolls. They may not sell online but at shows I do pretty good.

I am not sure if I am doing this right I never can seem to get the hyper link but please go over to Cheryl's blog Prims from Scratch there you can see my swap package from her and what I sent to her.
Another new blog friend. You know it is so wonderful how blogging can bring so many new people into your life. Last year I met Deb from Vintage Soul during a Easter Swap we have been in touch ever since.

I know I am going on and on but there is so much I want to share and say but I guess I need to close now and pray that by tomorrow I can get that camera of mines to work I do want to share at least a few of my Christmas pictures. I hope I haven't left anyone out if I did please know I do appreciate all of you. Until next posting
Peace and Many Blessings to all
Cheryl...Snatch JOY!
