HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!!!

IN MEMORY OF MY MOTHER

VIRGINIA CLARKE PAYNE

1923-2007


A bit late on the day, but everyone else went to bed after eating way to much picnic food. Chicken, hot dogs, mac salad, chips, coke, pink lemon aid and donuts... yummy...

well I hope you all had a good day and that you spent it with loved ones. This year is a bunch of firsts for me, first holidays with out my dear mother. She was in the waves and a proud and patriotic American. God rest her soul. My father's 84th birthday was today, but he was in Oregon visiting my brother, so I will talk to him after he arrives home in the morning. I assume he took the red eye as usual. He was in the army and over in Europe for WW II. I am proud to be an AMerican, and proud my parents served in the service.

God Bless American and our men who serve to keep us safe and free.

HEY EVERYONE, YES I AM STILL ALIVE

Those of you who frequent my blogs know I am more on the sales blog getting fresh dollies up for you, and less on the blabber blog as I don't have too much to say (to people anyway)

I do talk to tiny, fabric beings alot though... call it crazy, call it sick...I call it me! Do they answer me? Well...I dare to share for fear of being placed in a tight, white, canvas coat with many straps and ties that one can not easily remove, then forced to take tiny white, sour, jagged little pills that make you feel all fuzzy... but yeah sometimes they do...

It has been said though, by some of YOU, YOU my customers, faithful and true, that they are ALIVE!! So it isn't just me...whew!

This past month:
my oldest daughter's baby shower,
my baby boy's college graduation (pics below),
nother "oldest" daughter home from college for the summer,
my baby girl's wedding (may 31),
my father's birthday,
my FIL's birthday...
it is cash flooding out of the house as fast as it is creeping in!

COMPLAINTS!! NARe A ONE...just facts... sew, i sew and sew and sew...not much time for chatter...but find that I do care, I know you are out there, and I think of you often...

There are many new creatures clawing to "get out" of my small brain space...they will come, so don't be shy, don't go away, come visit often and I will come and play!!!

hugs, robin

ART DOLL QUARTERLY PUBLICATION

FALL ISSUE

I just received an email from the art editor of Art Doll Quarterly publication. She mentioned she had received my flying witch, and she has been sent off to be photographed for the fall issue!!! This is actually more exciting for me than Ashton Drake Galleries, as it will be amazing to see one of my very own original dolls published in a magazine of this quality. Just a bit of news to share for all interested parties. I will take photos and keep you informed as things progress!! Thanks to all of you for all your support, interest, time and faithfulness to my work! sincerely, Robin (gotta run now, dolls are calling me!bye!!)
