April 16th, 2021. Happy Friday!!

Happy Birthday, Daniel!! Today is our eldest son’s birthday.

Wishing him all the best for a great day!!

Great news! I have completed some more “Doin’ 50 in Style,” fashion dress sets. If you’re on the waiting list you should be receiving an email this Saturday, or Sunday. I still have more fashion orders to complete. Trying to have them all finished by the end of this weekend. I’ll post more info this weekend.

Have a great day & have a fun weekend!! Love always, Janet xoxo

Happy Saturday! April 10th, 2021.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!

Here in Bowie the sun is shinning and that always makes me happy!

I’m going to start releasing emails to those on the waiting list for the “Doin’ 50 in Style”

dress set. If you don’t receive a “completed & ready” to ship, email this weekend,

then you should receive one next weekend.

And, don’t forget to check your “Spam” folders just encase your letter gets sent there.

Enjoy your Saturday! More to come! Much love, Janet xxxx

April 5th, 2021. Hope you had a beautiful holiday weekend! Happy Monday!

Please know that the waiting list orders for the latest fashion set, “Doin’ 50 in Style” are in production. The 1st batch of "completed & ready to ship" emails will start going out this Saturday, April 10th. YAY!!

Other great news is: My little sister Michele will be visiting at the end of this month. She will be graduating from Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, on May 1st. Michele attended MSU in the 80s. She left the university before she could finish her degree. Last year, due to the Covid virus, the university opened online courses for all. Michele met all the requirements to finish her degree. I’m proud to say, this year, MSU will also have an in-person graduation instead of a virtual one.  As her older sister, this is a moment I too have been waiting for. If our parents were here today, it would be one of their proudest moments as parents too.

So, once Michele grabs here diploma, we will all be heading down to Galveston Island, Texas for some much-needed R&R! WooHOO!!!! I can’t wait!!

Chat more soon!! Back to sewing I must go!!

Much love, Janet xoxo

March 15th, 2021! Great news! Happy Monday!!

Hope everyone is doing well!

Kids are out on Spring Break this week in Bowie. Grandkids will be here shortly!

Getting closer to releasing our next fashion set. This set will also tie into last year’s theme. Dawn’s Golden 50th Anniversary. No, it’s not the “Wrapped in Gold” set yet, or Gary’s set. This next fashion was inspired by a beautiful piece of fabric that was sent to me last year by collector/friend. I can’t wait for you to see it. If all goes well, I hope to release it this Sunday, March 21st. I will post a more definite release date & time later this week and send a newsletter out.

Enjoy your week! Have fun, and I’ll be back shortly with more updates! Love always, Janet xx

March 7th. Happy Sunday!

Hope you are having a beautiful weekend!

The weather here is warming up, and the sun is shining.

This always happy & smile.

Okay, so I’m going to be adding more “Clara’s Dream” to the inventory on the “Fashion Avenue Boutique” page. This is last of this fashion and it will be officially retired at the limited edition of 100 dress sets.

Wonder what’s next? I don’t know?

FYI: No new fashion release this week. I’ll post more information next weekend!

Enjoy your Sunday & have a wonderful week!

Love always, Jxoxo

Another Saturday update!! February 27th.

Hey! Just scored 9 yards of the gold satin lame. All is good! Looks like I’m moving onto the “Wrapped in Gold” set. Oh… Oh… I mentioned earlier about needing to figure out which tie & color on Gary’s suit. I made the black necktie just like the one I made for “Men ‘n Black.” Looks perfect to me! I love the look. We shall see!

Really, at first, I couldn’t remember for the life of me how I made these men neckties. I do now!! HA!

FYI: I just added (2) extra “Clara’s Dream sets to the inventory over on the Fashion Avenue Boutique page. Have fun & enjoy the rest of your weekend!! xoxo

February 27th, 2021.

Happy Saturday Everyone!!

Hope your weekend is starting off great! May the sun be shinning and the weather be warm.

Great news!! I just completed the remaining waiting list orders for “Clara’s Dream.” Hurray!! I’ll be sending out email messages to those on the list later this afternoon. I’ll have some extras to post in the website inventory too. First day to ship out will be on Monday, March 1st.

Oh no! March, already!!???!! The time is just been slipping by so fast. Yikes! The faster time flies the older I get. Time needs to take a break and slow down, and I need to speed up.

I have some more great news. The found another vendor to purchase my gold satin lame fabric from. A sample yard just arrived this week and it’s a perfect match. That “Wrapped in Gold” gown set is still standing here staring at me every day. I also had another great ideal, and that was created a Gary, gold metallic & black suit. Yes, you read that correctly. A Gary’s suit!  Jacket made from the gold metallic satin lame, black satin lapel, black slacks, dicky, cuffs and 2 buttons. Now, However, I’m still working on which tie to make. I’ll get there!! I have a couple other fashion samples I’ve been working on too. I should be able to give you a more definite direction next weekend on my next fashion production.

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend. Hope your able to spend special time with your loved ones.

“Come on Spring!”

Oh, OH! I have to share with you my latest addition to my Dawn collection.

I got her at a Buy-It-Now steal.

Look!

Again, have fun! Enjoy! May God Bless you & yours & keep you safe & well! Chat more soon!

Love always, Jxoxo

Hope everyone is safe & keeping well & warm.

Great news! Emails will be going out this weekend

to some on the waiting list for “Clara’s Dream.”

Enjoy your day! Have fun! Stay warm & be well! Love, Janet xoxo

February 18th. Happy Thursday!

Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe & warm. We are doing good here.

We have electricity, and are able to stay warm, and soon the water will be back on.

I still haven’t released any “Clara’s Dream” sets ready to ship.

We should start warming up here in Texas on Saturday. If all looks good, I’ll start releasing emails on Saturday.

Chat more soon! Enjoy your day! Love, Janet xoxo

 

February 16th! Good morning! Happy Tuesday!

Happy Mardi Gras!!

Since we’ve been dealing with extreme weather conditions here in Texas. Between the snow storms, and drastic temperature conditions, power outages, I decided not to send the next batch of “Clara’s Dream” ready to ship notices. I’m going to wait until later on this week. Possibly sending notices out of Thursday, and shipping day be Friday or Saturday of this week.

In the meantime, I’m working on the last batch of “Clara’s Dream” requests. Maybe, they’ll be ready to ship by the end of this week too. Time will tell! Since, Mike’s at home all week due to the weather conditions, he can sure make it a little difficult for me to get my sewing done. LOL!!

Please stay safe, stay warm & be well! Chat more soon! Love always, Jxoxo

February 5th! Happy Friday!! Where did January go?

Hope Y'all are doing well, and staying warm. I have great news, some of the extra “Clara’s Dream” dress sets have been completed & will be ready to ship on Monday. So, sometime over this weekend, emails will go out to some of you, with the information on how to purchase your set. YAY!

I’m still making the waiting list orders for “Clara’s Dream” and once I’ve completed them, I’ll post more information our next fashion release. But I will say...

“Wrapped in Gold” was supposed to be one of December’s 2020 release, celebrating Dawn’s 50th in gold. However, that fashion set has been stalled for a couple of months waiting for the supplies to arrive. I do plan to release a photo of my sample “Wrapped in Gold,” sometime soon. (Meaning when I set my photo session up.LOL!) Our next fashion set to be released is part of Dawn’s 50th birthday celebration. When I have more information to share on either one of these upcoming fashion sets, I’ll post it right here.

May your days be filled with lots of love & sunshine! Chat more soon!

Love always, Janet xoxo

Good afternoon!! Happy Monday, after Christmas! December 28th, 2020

The last of my houseguests are on their way home.  We all had a great time! Lots of fun, good foods, and spirits! Hope you & your family are relaxing and enjoying the holidays too.

The PC monitor in my sewing room blew out. It’s now a strobe light, blinking on and off. Good thing I have a backup PC here in my living room. I’ll be working from it until I get a replacement for my sewing room one.

Wishing you a great afternoon! I’m off to put my sewing room back together, catching up on e’s, & watching the grandkids until they return back to school.

Love always, Janet xoxo

____________________________________________________

Happy Monday!! December 21st, 2020. It’s Christmas week here!!

My family will start rolling in today.   For me, Christmas seems to be the most stressful time of year. This year is without any exceptions. 2020 has got to be the most challenging year ever.

I was so hoping to complete my last outfit of the year before Christmas or at least by the end of this year. At this time, it’s wishful thinking on my part.

I’ll be spending this entire week with my family, and I’ll be back next week when everyone heads back home.

I wish you all a beautiful & blessed, healthy & safe Christmas. I’ll be back to ring the new year in with you. With love, always, Janet

December 2nd, 2020!! Happy December, Happy Advent & Happy Holiday's!!

Wonderful news this morning! I finally received my notion/fabric supply Monday, and have been busy finishing up my next creations. HURRAY!! If all goes well over the next few days, I should have them packed and ready to release this Saturday, so I can ship on Monday, if not it’ll have to be Sunday, and shipping on Tuesday.

Let’s see…  Fashion hints.  Remember it is not holiday related, but winter related. I made something similar in 2008. New hint, the colors are: mocha, black & metallic gold. Please also remember there will only be 44 sets available because I used the main fabric, I purchased many years ago and it’s no longer available.

NOTE! If any fabric hoarder has this fabric in their stash, and would want one made, I may consider making you one from it so long it’s the same fabric.

I’ll send a newsletter out once I narrow the exact day & time, and I’ll post photos once they have been completed & ready to upload. More information to come. Stay tuned! Love, Janet xoxo

 

November 27, 2020. Happy Friday!!!

First let me say, there won’t be a fashion release this weekend. I really wanted to but they’re not finished. I’ll try again for next weekend. Maybe a Saturday late afternoon release. I’ll keep you post right here.

Like I was saying, this next fashion is not holiday related. It does blend with the last few fashion releases. Something warm. I made something very simpler back in 2008. That’s all for now!! I’ll give another hint in a few days. Stay tuned!

Have a great Friday, and enjoy your weekend! Much love, Janet xoxo 

 

November 24th, 2020. Happy Tuesday, Everyone!!

As “Thanksgiving Day” in American draws near, I want to give thanks for each and every one of you. For if it weren’t for you and won’t be able to create fashions for our little dolls. Sewing for them brings my great joy & love, and the best part is sharing them with you. I am so grateful to all of you.

Thank you for your friendship & your support.

May God bless you all and keep you safe & well through the coming holidays,

and through the coming New Year. Love always, Janet xoxo

New fashion release NEWS! Let’s see now… I am currently working on a new fashion release. Let me tell you just a little bit about it. First, I’m not sure of the release date! I would love to release it this coming Sunday, but one of my supplies are delayed so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to finish them before this weekend. I’ll keep you posted.

About the fashion?  There are only 44 sets made because I’ve used up all the main fabric supply.  So, there is no waiting list. This fashion set is not holiday related but can keep the winter’s chill off. That’s all for now! I’ll try to drop more hints on Friday.

Special notice: There will be a postal rate increase for the US only. New rates will be posted soon.

Wishing you a wonderful & blessed “Thanksgiving” holiday. And to everyone may the rest of your week be beautiful & bright! Lots of love, Janet xoxo

I have several Sunflower n’ the Bumblebee dress sets ready to ship, and extra Lovely n’ Leopard ready to ship. I'll be sending emails to those on the waiting list Saturday or Sunday. I haven’t completed all the fashion orders for the Sunflower n’ Bumblebee sets, so if you don’t receive an email over the weekend, that just means your fashion is still in making process and should be completed by next weekend.

September 27th, 2020. Hello my friends! Happy Sunday!

I have to tell you I’m a wee bit behind on everything. First, it started on my birthday (17th) when my husband Mike threw me a surprise birthday party. AND, our eldest son, Daniel from Vermont came home to visit as a surprise gift for his mama!! Let me say, please don’t surprise your mama like this, it increases the heart rate. I thought I was going to die! Best gift ever though!! Everything was amazing! From the friends, family, food, flowers, even the cake, which I might add was in some resembles of our Lovely ‘n Leopard dress & delicious too!!! HA!!

Daniel & I spent the remaining week playing catch up (it was awesome), while our youngest son Joey got engaged to a beautiful lady named Sarah. Sarah has two children, a boy & a girl! That’s not all folks!!! Sarah and Joey plan to marry this coming Friday.  Now, after they marry it will increase the size of my grandchildren from 2 to 4!! So, I have Carson & Alex, and soon Adan & Addie! All the children get along so happily and the couple are crazy about each other. We are so happy for them!

Not finished yet!! SURPRISE, this week Mike’s two brothers Eddie from South Carolina, & Tommy from Georgia are coming for a visit! They’ve never been here before!!  “Welcome to Texas” guys! I’m going to be whipping up a Texas barbecue feast of brisket, smoked sausage & ribs, beans, coleslaw, potato salad, sweet tea & beer & dessert is still up in the air at the moment. Oh… So much to do, so little time!!

Speaking about time!! Yes, my timing is a little off with those Lovely ‘n Leopard dress sets, however I’m really hope to have them ready to ship sometime this week. Thank you so much for hanging in here with me and for your patience.

Oh, I must not forget!! The coming new fashion release for October is still in the designing phase, and gathering supplies. I will keep you posted on my progress once its official & fully into production.

Wishing everything a beautiful Sunday & a wonderful a fun week!!

Chat more soon! Love always, Janet xoxo

Happy August 1st

Can you believe summer is nearly over?

Hope everyone is staying well. Mike took an unplanned two-week vacation so it’s been really hard to get any dolly fun done around here! LOL!! He’s back at work, and Janet’s been playing non-stop in her sewing room trying to bring you the latest design.

Last time around, I talked about having an unique piece of vintage fabric for my next design. I have never seen fabric like this. It’s a vintage 1950s looped ribbon brocade in ivory color (as advertised by the Seller). Since this fabric is very limited, I’ll only have enough for 55 sets.

I haven’t been able to decided on the release date yet, but I can say it could be as early as Tuesday, August 4th late afternoon, or as late as next Saturday morning. Should it be as early as next Tuesday, I’ll send a newsletter out to you late tomorrow night.

Thank you always for your patience’s, more information coming soon!!

Have an awesome weekend!!

It’s was actually 66 degrees here this morning! Just beautiful! Hope your day is beautiful too!!

Much love & hugs, Janet xoxoxo

I would have never imagined it to be the same fabric in a million years!! Doing the happy dance!! So, to hope to finish those sets up and if there’s any extra sets left, I’ll add them to the inventory.

New fashion release coming soon! It’s not fully completed so, no release date yet.

Thanks so much for allowing me to share my creations with you. More to come!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend & have a great week!

Stay safe & stay healthy! J xoxo

June 7th 2020. Happy Sunday! I hope your able to get out and enjoy the weekend! 

Great news for those still on the waiting list for the “Caramel Fluff” fur coat sets! I received the fur fabric last week and just finished packing them for shipping. YAY! As for the remaining extra Mother of Pearls sets,  I still haven’t received any replacement fabric for the jackets yet. I’m not even sure once it arrives that it will match since the actual fabric used in the jacket was from a vintage fabric seller.  We’ll just have to wait and see and hope for the best!
I’ve made some extra “Golden Celebration” Dawn’s 50th  gown sets and I’ll be adding them to the inventory. This will be the last call for this gown set. Limited Edition 100.  I will also be adding a few extra “Caramel Fluff” sets too. This will be the last call for this set too.
Next new fashion release date is still pending. Stay tuned here for more information.
Wishing you & your family a  safe & healthy week ! Lots of love, Janet xx

Good morning! Happy Wednesday! May 27th, 2020.

Here to post the latest!

Thank you for your concerns, we are all doing good!

Yes, we had a EF1 tornado come through Bowie, Friday night. Tore up the town! Looks like a war zone. Lots of trees down, windows blown out, and roofs torn off. Damaged approximately 50 businesses, and 200 homes.

The electricity was restored within hours. Mike & I only had minimum property damage. A big tree came down in our back yard which took down the side privacy fence.

It was a wicked night & a wicked storm though! Sirens kept going off! The noise level was high, with the hail, winds & rain!

No loss of life! We were truly blessed! Thank God!

FASHION NEWS OF THE DAY!

Okay, so, as for the extra “Caramel Fluff” fur coat sets.

I’m still waiting on the extra fur to arrive. It’s been 3 weeks! Good news is… it has been shipped and should arrive by the end of the week. I'll post again once it arrives!

Mother of Pearls, news! Last week, I was working hard to making all the extra MOP outfits that were needed. All the pieces to this fashion were made (skirts, purses, hats, scarves) and all that was left to do was to make the jackets. Well, Friday I was drawing out the jackets needed and I could only get to #22. I needed 30. Anyone who requested an extra MOP I had to put on hold. I’m not sure I’ll be able to complete (8) of those now. However, I did find some ivory bouche fabric online and ordered it.

Hopefully it will match! We shall see!

I do have 22 MOP sets completed & ready to ship. Emails will be sent out today. YAY!

New fashion release date not available at this time but it is in the works!

I’ll post more info late next week on my progress.

Wishing you a great day! Enjoy the rest of your week! Stay happy & healthy!

Much love, Janet xxxx

 

Monday, May 25th.

Happy Memorial Day! Honoring those who died in the service of our country.

Wishing you & yours a wonderful, & safe holiday!

_____________________________

FYI: I'll post some fashion news on Wednesday 5/27/20. I am still working on the extra Mother of Pearls sets. Also, the fur fabric for the remaining Caramel Fluff sets has not arrived.  Chat more soon! Have fun! Love, Janet xoxo

_____________________________________________

Saturday. May 16th. Wishing everyone a great weekend! It's been raining here all day! I hope the sun is shining where you're at.  Like I mentioned earlier this week, I do have most of the "Caramel Fluff" sets completed & ready to ship. Email notices will go out on Sunday. I still have about a dozen more CF sets to make, and they've been delayed due to supply shortage. Once the additional fur arrives I'll schedule the remaining CF into production. I'll continue to keep you posted.

Good news! I was able to complete (10) Mother of Pearls sets. Those emails will go out on Sunday too. I hope to have the remaining MOP orders finished by next Saturday too.

Wishing you all a very good week!

Thank you all for keeping me busy, especially during these most critical & changeling health times. I pray that God keep you & your loved ones safe & healthy.

Be safe & be well!

All my love, Janet xxxxoo

Great news! For those who have been patiently waiting on the waiting list since April for the “Caramel Fluff,” fur coat set, they are completed & ready to ship. YAY!! Email notices should be going out by the end of this week.

More news, for some who went on the waiting list in May for the same fashion, “Caramel Fluff,” I will have some of those completed & ready to ship by the end of today, and email notices will go out too by the end of this week. However, I did run out of fur to meet all the waiting list orders for the Caramel Fluff. A fabric order was placed last week, but it could take a few weeks before I receive it. I’ll keep you posted.

FYI: Waiting list orders for “Mother of Pearls.” They will begin to go into production tomorrow (Thursday).

October 21st! Happy Monday!!

 

So, I’ve been working hard making all the extra “Sapphires n’ Snowflake” dress sets. If you are currently on the waiting list you should be receiving an email this week. I have them all completed now but I still have to package them for shipping.

Now, about having a Halloween season fashion set… Long story short! I’ve been patiently waiting for some special fabric to arrive from Asia. Looks like it could take another month. I did put something else on the table but I can’t promise you anything at this time!! My husband has medical procedures this week and my ex daughter- in- law is going out of the country for a week and so my grandson’s will be here with me this week too!! 

Dolly’s take me away!!  LOL!!

 

Have a fun week!! Chat more soon! Lots of love, Janet

 

____________________________________________________________

Monday, 3pm update!

Just wanted to let y'all know that the Ebay Seller had corrected the (2) listing. All is good!! Hope this helps!  Love, Janet xoxoxo

October 21st! Happy Monday!!

First I have to say... I was on Ebay leaving feedback for a Seller, and a photo of one of my older gowns appeared there. I was like.... Wow!! That looks like my gown!! Cool it was but then I found the Seller also had listed 2 other items claiming they were "Janet outfits." Y'all they are not mine! I contacted the Seller, not sure what will come of it. Please know it doesn’t bother me that someone has to sell their Janet outfit BUT, what really sets me off is folks selling items and claiming they are mine! That's dishonest & could be fraudulent. So please beware of those selling my fashions, because they could be misleading and not mine at all.

 

 

October 10th. Happy Thursday y'all!! I'm back!! 

We had an amazing time at the Dawn convention in Newport Beach, Calif. this year!! Vicki, her family & friends did an amazing presentation! Just amazing!! If you've never been to a Dawn convention before you should consider making it to at least one! Seeing friends again, and meeting new ones!! There's nothing else like it!!  Fun!! Fun!! And more FUN!! :)

Have a fun day!!  Back to replying to e's!!

Much love, Janet xoxox

I have 22 of these little dress sets completed & ready to ship.  You can find them listed on the “Unexpected Fashion Sales” page.

Since today is a holiday, I won’t begin the packing process until Friday.

Thank you so much for your continued support & friendship!

Wishing you & your family a beautiful, blessed & safe holiday!! Lots of love, Janet xoxo

I can't believe its spring break & St Patty's too, all in one week! I have nothing spring or green to offer this week!! However, I do have a couple new exciting fashions to release in the next few days. Sunday, or Monday, I’ll keep you posted.

Right now I'm playing around with ideals in my head... Thinking the theme is going to be a classic mystery Noir film. The name of the film would be the name of my fashion, and not an actual classic film. Something like, The Black Onyx and Lady of Mystery. We shall see...  The color scheme is red & black. Heehee!!

 

Have a fabulous day!! Much love, Janet  xoxoxo

Monday, November 26th, 2018. I was taking a trip down memory lane.

Here's my 1st Christmas Collection 2003.

Holiday Collection 2003.

 

*****************

11/21/2018:  Happy Thanksgiving Eve !

Just dropping in to wish everyone a fabulous & beautiful Thanksgiving Holiday!

I am so grateful & thankful to you all my doll friends. You are all family to me. Without you there could be no me.  Dolls have been my passion for my entire life and when my mom taught me to sew, she opened up a whole new world of possibilities. Linking both my passion for dolls and my passion for fashions what more could a girl like me asked for?  

On this Thanksgiving Day, I want to take this moment to thank each of you for continuing to support my creations and keeping my dream alive. I am so blessed to be a small part of your lives. Thank you for always filling my heart with laughter & love! Thank you for all the smiles and yes even some tears.

You are the best!  

May your days be filled with sunshine, smiles, fun & love!

Happy Thanksgiving my friends! Love always, Janet xoxo

 

***Breaking News! Friday, November 23rd at 3pm Central time I will be adding two new fashion sets to the "Unexpected Fashion Sales" page. This is not the official Christmas Collection. I will release that some time next month. This is a unannounced collection in which I have decided to call the "Holiday Desserts Collection." Pistachio 'n Buttercream Fluff & Green Apple Sorbet! Just the names alone should give you a hint of the color schemes being used! It is a fabulous collection and it does have hints of the Christmas holiday too!

I hope to have a photo posted tomorrow.

Have fun & enjoy your holiday! Love, Janet xoxo

**********************************************************

October 19th! Happy Friday!! Great news!! Just finish the latest in the Vamp Collection! Bride of Darkness & Sunrise! Both stunning sets!! I haven't begun packing or photographing yet! Hope to have most of that done by night fall. If all goes well, I'll send a newsletter out tonight and release these two gems tomorrow (Saturday) at 3pmTexas central daylight time!

Have a great day!!

More info coming soon! Love, Janet xoxo

Friday, October 5th, 2018. The Dawn convention, “Meet me in St. Louis,” was awesome!! We all had a blast!! It was fabulous!! Meeting new & reconnecting with other friends was my most treasure moments!!! I didn't want it to end!! The drive to St. Louis and back was wonderful too! St. Louis was awesome and Mike & I enjoyed the day we spent in St. Charles too!! Mike made friends with other Dawn collector’s husbands, and he's all in for next year’s too!! YAY!!

The Dawn Convention Doll was breathtaking. She’s to die for!! The convention mini and all other doll goodies were totally fabulous! The items that were donated by other collectors were all cherished items. The contests, party games, raffles, and foods were all so very exciting!! At the “Meet & Greet” you were able to purchase dolls, fashions, & other cool things for your dolls! The attendees also received a charm bracelet with 20 charms identifying each year’s convention. Cool! If you’ve never been to a Dawn Convention try to attend at least one!   However, they can certainly be very addicting!

A special “thank you & a round of applause to the Hostess, Trish Freeland, her mama Rosemary (chief hostess assistant, and cheerleader) for this year’s convention, all of the team players that make these conventions possible.  Without their love, hard work, dedication, benefactors, creators, advisors, coordinators, the convention could not be possible. It’s just amazing to see how everyone pulls together to make an endless weekend of pure fun & laughter.  Thank you all!

 

***On a fashion note! I have finally finished waiting list orders, and emails will be sent over the next day or two. I will also be adding to the inventory some extra fashions & jewelry from previous releases. You will be able to find them in the “Unexpected Fashion Sales,” page some time over this weekend.

Have a great Friday & a fun weekend!! Lots of love, Janet xoxo

Mardi Gras fabric prints scaled to our little ladies as you know is nearly impossible to find. So I was able to purchase and download digital graphics that made it possible to make my own Mardi Gras fabric.  I then pre-treated some white fabric and voila!! Can’t show you the costume yet, but I’ll try to post photos from time to time.  Release date for the finish costume is unknown at this time.

As for a Valentine’s Day fashion release… Don’t think it could happen but then you never know!! The supplies are here looking at me every day!

Thank you all so much for best wishes! We have been treating my hand Arthritic with steroids and they have helped in relieving so of the inflammation which helped cut down on the pain. So that’s a good thing.

Wishing everyone and a warm & sunny week!! Chat more soon! Lots of love, Janet xoxo

Wishing everyone a Spectacular 2018!!

December 29th. 2017. 

Wishing you a New Year filled with new Hope, new Joy & new Beginnings.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Latest Updates:

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. I’ve been on the constant go, (like many of you) ever since the release of our holiday fashion collection.

Cleaning, decorating, baking, getting ready for the holiday rush before my family & friends arrived from out of town and out of state.  I’ve had a house full of 10 over the past week +. It’s been very exhausting. I think it’ll take days to recover. HA!

This is my first day back. Please accept my apologies for not making it back sooner. I’m so behind on emails, cards & thank you messages.

I haven’t started on any fashions since the holiday fashion show. My arthritis in my hands had gotten really bad during the last fashion production. I thought they would heal during the Christmas break, but they haven’t. I’m waiting on a pair of arthritis relieve gloves to come in soon, and a doctor appointment on the 8th. I hope we can work something out fast!

Since I was only able to send out a few Christmas cards manually this year, I have been working with an email service called “Constant Contact” today in hopes of getting some colorful email messages sent to you. Hopefully they will come through later today.

I wish you all a beautiful & blessed New Year!

See you next year!

Love, Janet

Dad, is being strong, however the cancer is rapidly taking him from us. We are a strong family when taking care of one another, but when the mist of darkness takes over we become weak. I asked him what kind of cake he wanted for Father's Day, he said, New York, cheesecake. So like a good daughter, (presto-just a click away), a cheesecake was ordered from NY. As is stands we will celebrate Father’s Day this Friday.

Wishing you a wonderful week! And don’t forget to make “Father’s Day” special for all the dads in your life! Much love & lots of hugs, Janet

5/17/2017.  Happy Wednesday! Hope everyone had a great weekend & Moms had a great Mother’s Day!

___________________

Dad had a wonderful 80th birthday!  We all enjoyed the day! Philly cheese steaks & New York cheese cakes were a HUGH hit!

Daniel flew in from Vermont & gave his Mom a Dawn Dance Party stage featuring Kevin (who is in excellent condition.) He also brought me Tonner Betty Davis doll. Her clothing was breathtaking, with exquisite details. I was in awe!  Grandsons brought beautiful flowers & handmade Crayola cards! I cooked for them a big pasta dinner and feed them big chocolate fudge brownies, with a slice of cheese cake & strawberries.

Doll news! Currently there are no new fashions to be released. I will keep you posted! I have more Let’s Pretend gowns to release to those on the waiting list. If I have any extra sets left I’ll add them to the website.

5/10/2017:No new fashions to be released. 

5/4/2017: Let's Pretend was released.

5/3/2017. Happy May! Wow, the months are just peeling away here! I sure wished they'd slow down a little! We didn't get caught up in those nasty tornadoes in West Texas last week. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those most affected by them.

Dad is doing as well as he can. Although the time is becoming direr as the days go by. He wants to see his 80th birthday, which will be next Friday the 12th. He wanted a New York cheesecake for his birthday cake. So I was able to order a couple from Junior's out of Brooklyn, New York. Junior's has been around since 1950. And, since we are all originally from Philadelphia, Pa, We are having a Taste of Philly with their original Philly cheese steaks. HA! I'll also be doing a little taste of Italy too, since we all are a bunch of crazy Italians here too!  Daniels (my oldest) son will be flying in from Vermont. He has been traveling back & forth from there to Texas, along with my sister Michele who is in Oklahoma.

I was hoping to get more fashions into our spring collection but a mixture of things makes it nearly impossible. I do have something beautiful to add to our collection. Release date, unknown! Maybe tomorrow! I'll know more later on, once I make the finally decision. And please don't worry if you miss out on this set. I can make more, I have enough supplies to make around 12 to 15 more.

Have a great day!!  Much love, Janet
