Because I got nuttin'

Because I have nothing to show for the past few days, I thought I'd show you a picture of the porcelain doll my friend re-dressed and which will be used for an Alzheimer's fundraiser. The original doll was a bride that had seen better days. Elise stripped her and designed all new clothing and re-did her hair. Elise (in her mid 80's) loves to crochet and has great fun designing outfits for the second hand dolls I pick up for her at yard sales and such. This little lady has pantaloons, a bra and a beautiful slip underneath her dress. Heaven forbid a doll go out of her house 'nekked'!!

Elise is also the lady that keeps me well-stocked up with craft supplies. She can't pass by the dollar store without getting me something. Today she added to my beads, my stickers, and managed to get me some great tools too. One of the treasures is a little cutting mat that is great for paper projects and will be just perfect to carry with me. She is such a sweetheart and does so much for others.
