I've just been contacted by Kate of Katie J Designs, who sponsored the doll dress giveaway a couple weeks ago. She so enjoyed reading everyone's reminiscences about favorite dolls, and wanted to offer everyone who submitted a comment a 20% discount toward anything in her store! Woohoo! She's going to be starting on holiday dresses soon, too. Just email her at katiejdesigns at ymail dot com with the item(s) you'd like to purchase, and she'll make the necessary adjustments to your purchase price. Discount is good through December 31, 2009. Sweet!

In other, less exciting news, I had a Ma Ingalls moment yesterday. A dress of Eliza's had a couple of very noticeable chocolate stains (oh, did I say chocolate? I meant wheatgrass) right front and center. My stain-fighting tactics were no match for these unsightly flourishes. So, snip snip snip, I cut that dress right up and made a muumuu gown for Eliza's doll, Elizabeth. With ruffles on the sleeves. Oh, and a couple stretchy headbands for the girls. Now don't get all excited on me. The workmanship leaves puh-lenty to be desired. But Eliza, originally a puddle of tears over the butchery of her dress, found the outcome delightful. That's the good thing about tears, you know. They blur a girl's vision, and make love quite blind indeed.

that is so kind of her! I heard on the Doctors show you can use hydrogen peroxide directly on stains, wash as usual. try that next time. that's a cute story about recycling and glad she was happy with the outcome!
