January 14th, 2023. Happy Saturday, Y’all!
Looks like it’s going to be a bright & sunny day here! I’m so ready for spring to get here.I older I get the warmer I want to be. HA!
I’m currently working on all the “Happy Holiday’s 2022” waiting list orders.Hoping for them to be done by next weekend. I’ll post more information late next week on my progress.
No new fashion releases for the month of January. I’ll keep you posted for what maybe coming in February.
FYI: Here’s something fun!! Someone sent me a link to an Ebay Seller item that has a vintage Dawn & Gary doll wearing some of my older fashion designs. I just took a peek and “yes” they both my creations. Let’s see if I can get you the run down. First the opening bid is for 79.99. That includes the dolls & the fashions, plus shoes. If it was a buy-it-now I would have purchased them myself. LOL!!
Let’s see. I don’t know who the Seller is but they do have over 2500 feedbacks with 100% positive feedback. Here’s the link.
Oh, my and she’s wearing a pearl necklace. Could that be my necklace that came with this gown set? It appears to be. Looks like she’s wearing the pearl bracelet too.
“Secret Garden” Okay, it appears Dawn’s fashion is incomplete. It only has the gown & necklace, bracelet. No crocheted hat, or white basket.
And let’s see for Gary:
“After Five” tuxedo set.
Have a great weekend! Stay warm! Chat more soon!
Lots of dolly love, Janet xxxxx

Nov. 12th, 2022. Happy Saturday! Hope everyone is doing well! Got back from the Dawn convention in Orlando, and then got myself sick. Finally was able to see the doc yesterday, and got me some antibiotics & cough syrup. I remember a time when I’d get sick, it last for 24 hours and I’d be good as new again. Now, it takes me weeks to get over a common cold.
The Dawn convention was magical! It was great to visit with old friends & make new ones. I’m going to spend the weekend recuperating, recovering & unpacking. Can’t wait to start unpacking & playing with all my convention treasures!
I’ll be sitting here for the next couple of hours catching up with the emails.
Have a fun weekend! It’s cold here in Texas this morning. 29 degrees! Stay warm! Love, Janet
Who's ready for some pumpkin pie?
I can't wait! Thanksgiving Day is just a couple weeks away!

I have some amazing personal news to tell! Sorry, I’ve been out of the office these past few days, so your emails may have gone unanswered, and the website has not been updated. I promise to get caught up with everyone over the next couple of days.
To my surprise this past Friday, our son (Daniel) from Vermont, my sister Michele from Pa and her boyfriend Ron, and our second son Joey & wife Sarah from Lubbock, Texas along with our 4 grandkids, surprised me with a 3-day birthday bash. Joey brought his smoker. He smoked a brisket, 3 racks ribs, 2 whole chickens, and plenty of stuffed jalapeno peppers. Sarah & Michele made appetizers, side dishes & desserts. I made my favorite beans. HA! Oh, and they brought plenty of drinks for everyone. HA!!! So, with lots of celebrating, drinking & eating we didn’t want it to end. It’s been two years since we’ve had everyone here, all together, at the same time. Of course, we didn’t want it to end.
Hang in here with me as I get everything caught up to date.
Have a wonderful week! Chat soon!
Love always, Janet xxxx

I want to give you an early look at the fabric I’ve been working with. As you noticed written on the salvage edge of this fabric reads:
“Love is a flower you’ve got to let it grow.” ~John Lennon
This fabric was love at first site for me! The colors and the floral blooms are amazing. It was sent to me by a Dawn friend, and I couldn’t wait to create some beautiful from it.
I also wanted to give you an update on the release date for this next floral dress set. Instead of Saturday, Jul 30th, the release date will be this coming Sunday, July 31st.
Mike is off on Friday & Saturday, so I'm going to spend that time with him, and I'll see you this Sunday. I'll post more information tomorrow (Thursday). Photos, date & time.

Happy 4th of July weekend!!
Wishing you & your family a wonderful, happy & safe holiday weekend!
Exciting news for those waiting for the 5th in the “Galaxy of Stars” collection. It’ll premier next Sunday, July 10th, at 12pm noon Texas central time. Like last time, no newsletter will be released, as mentioned earlier this year. “Purple Starlet” (a bright grape color purple) is limited due to the fabric shortage sent to me. I didn’t notice it when I received all ten colors back in January 2020. The fabric vendor is no longer in business. No worries, we’ll make the best of it.
**I'll take photos & post later this week with more information.**
**No mask being made at this time, but will be created later along with the mask to match the Laurel Rose Starlet gown set.**
More great news! For those looking for the next floral dress design, releasing later this month.
Coming in hot, and Dale wears it so well. Colors, bright pink, purples, yellows, greens! That’s all I can say for now! After that, should be the 6th in the “Galaxy of Stars” collection, bright/hot pink.
Thank you all so very much for your continuous support for my fashions & I.
With love, always, Janet xxxx
PS. I’m off to start cooking for Mike & I’s 4th of July celebrations.
Have a great weekend!!

Jan. 22nd. Happy Saturday! Great news, friends! I’m back!
Yes, I did test positive the other day, and they changed my meds again for the 3rd time. Good thing is no pain, my energy levels are coming back, my head is clear to think again! YAY! If I can only get my sense of taste & smell back, life can go back to normal.
Okay, time to get back to some serious business! Let’s get back to sending the “completed & ready to ship” messages out. This time, as least I have Mike here to help me out just encase.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend. Stay safe & warm! Love always, Janet xxxx
Hello, happy Wednesday! January 20th, 2022.
Had a relapse on Monday afternoon, before I was able to send out the “completed & ready to ship messages. It was a good thing those messages didn’t go out because I had no strength to prepare them all for the post office. My doctor sent over some more drugs yesterday, and they could be working. We shall see. I had to take another covid test. If it comes back positive Mike & I will have to quarantine for another 5 days. If it comes back negative then I’ll be able to go inside the clinic to have some extra test done. Should be getting the result this morning, and we’ll go from there. If it wasn’t for the pain, I could get things done.
I’ll do my best to come back to the office later today, to give an update & maybe do a few emails.
Take care of yourselves, stay warm, and pray you are all being protected from the storms.
Jan. 17th. Happy Monday! Happy MLK Day!
Great News for those on the waiting list for The Golden Mask. I have finished the first 25 sets, and they are ready to ship. YAY!! I will try and get some “completed & ready to ship” emails out today & start shipping tomorrow. I'll hope to have the next batch ready by the end of the following week.
Oh, and yes, I did receive supplies this past Saturday to make those Black Silver Buckle hats. There’s enough to make 30 If I’m careful with my supplies. YAY!
Wishing you a wonderful Monday & a great week! Love, Jxoxo

January 15th, 2022. Good morning!
Happy Saturday from very windy & very cold Bowie, Texas!
Hope everyone is doing well. I personally can’t wait for spring to get here.
Have to say, I haven’t gotten one waiting list order out yet for The Golden Mask. I’m again, a little behind. Caught the virus this week, been a little under the weather.
I’ll be working quietly here in my office today, trying to finish up the first round of (25) of the waiting list orders for The Golden Mask.
Monday is a holiday, (Martin Luther King) so shipping could begin as early as Tuesday, January 18th.
Yesterday, my ex-daughter-in-law Jen has tested positive and my little grandson Alex too. My grandson Carson tested negative. Adalyn (Addie) our new grand-daughter is not well at the moment, and Aiden like Carson hasn’t shown any signs.
We’re in for another wild week of the unknowns. Hopefully by the end of this month, my family here & my family in south Texas will be as good as new again. So, we all can get back to work & school.
There hasn’t been a lot of doll news to share. January didn’t start off the way I would have liked it to. However, I could be receiving a batch of silver buckle sets, tongues & leathers to make a batch of cowboy hats. I may have enough for 30/40 hats. We shall see!
I apologies for not getting to my emails these last few days, but I will do my best to get to them today & tomorrow.
Hope my next update will bring some cheer!
Stay safe, stay warm & be well! Love always, Janet
January 7, 2022. Happy Friday!
Hope everyone is having a good week & staying warm. Want to give you a little update.
Warning! Warning! The following message could cause sadness.
It started on Monday afternoon when we lost our 14yr old golden retriever Lilah.
Lilah’s been my shadow for over a decade. We did everything together, starting from the time we woke up, to the time we went to bed. We even took our meds together. It was the only way I could remember to take mine.
The only thing that brings us comfort is knowing she’s no longer in pain.
It doesn’t stop the hurt in our hearts. Rest in Peace my Sweet Angel Lilah.
Now, I was just bragging to y’all the other day, how our youngest son Joey & his wife Sarah and our grandkids were here on New Year Eve, and New Year. We had a fabulous time together celebrating Christmas & ringing in the New Year! Well, Joey tested positive for covid omicron, he had gotten really sick, but he’s on the mend today. Sarah, tested positive too now and she’s doing her best to beat it as well. Mike too started really feeling poorly, so we finally were able to get him tested, and he tested positive yesterday for Covid omicron. He’s self-quarantine for 5 days now. As for me, I’ve tested negative, and the doctor had ready prescribed all the meds I needed. So, I’m really should I catch it too.
As for the kiddos, so far, so good! They are all doing well!! YAY!!
So, as for my first week back to sewing, I haven’t accomplished much. I hope to have my first batch of the waiting orders for “The Golden Mask” ready next weekend. Now, if something happens to me, and I become ill too, I’ll let you know.:)
Wait!! I did manage one good thing this week! I was able to make a big pot of homemade chicken noodle soup.
Yummy!! Homemade soup always makes me feel better, no matter what is going on! HA!
Thank you so much for always being here for me.
I wish you & yours a beautiful day, and many blessings, always.
Stay safe & stay well! Love you all, Janet xxxx
Wishing you & your family the best year, ever,2022!
1/2/2022. Happy Sunday! Hope you are all well & doing good & rocking in the new year!
Here at the Caudle home we are slowly recovering from the holiday festivities. Mike’s back at work this morning, and Janet having a bad case of the “I don’t want to!” Ha! First there was the 48 hour Twilight Zone marathon, and then there’s the Colombo marathon still in progress. Maybe that’s it? Or, it could be that it’s been in the 80s all Christmas week and now this morning we’re in the teens. Burrr…
Or, it could be my coffee isn’t strong enough lately. Here, let me share with you one highlight of my Christmas morning. A complete shocker!! Blew me totally away, so much, that if I had known what was in that box, I would have opened it before Christmas. Ha!
As a collector myself in dolls for many decades, anything doll related just sends me over the moon. So this is how the story starts.
In 2020 the Dawn convention had to be canceled due to the virus. A beautiful Dawn collector sent out to all the conventioneers an 8x10 photo copy of the 50th golden anniversary Topper Dawn 2020 doll photo. (See photo below.) When I received that photo, it sent me over the moon. I wanted that doll, but I never knew one existed. Anyhow, during Christmas of 2020 I created the dress set called “Clara’s Dream.” Keeping with my own style I tried to pacified myself & released it in January 2021.
Again,I had no ideal, that the photo below was made into an actual doll. That was until I saw it on Ebay a few months back. I tried, and tried but was not able to win her. Then at this year’s Dawn convention, there she was on the raffle table, going to be raffled off. I did my best to win her. I kept stuffing the jar with purchased raffle tickets. I just knew I’d win her. I knew it! She was meant for me! But again, I was not successful. For me it was time to give up. Shake it off, she was not meant for me.
This Christmas morning, I opened a package sent by a dearest friend. Oh my GOODNESS!! Before my sleepy eyes, there she was!! I did a double take! Were my eyes deceiving me? Yes, way!! No way!!There she was, and she was mine. I was jumping up & down, up & down. It was an amazing feeling!! Unbelievable!! Just unbelievable!!
Thanks for allowing me to share my time with you. Have a beautiful Sunday!
I’m off to catch up on some emails.
May your 2022 be the best year ever! Lots of Love, Janet xxxx
My Christmas gift Dawn doll by a friend (doll on the right.) And, photo on the left was given to me by a friend. That photo inspired me to create "Clara's Dream" in 2021.

November 20th, 2021
Good morning, & Happy Saturday!
I’m currently working on the first batch of waiting list orders from our last show which consists of 30 dresses + masks from our last fashion show release. Hope to have this batch ready for shipping starting Monday. I’ll keep you posted.
Oh WAIT! My grandsons Carson & Alex are out of school all of next week! Things could get a little wild around here. LOL!!
Here’s an update on the cowboy Black Silver Buckle hats:
I was able to make 18 hats. So, anyone who was on the waiting list for one will get one. However, at this time I’m unable to make any more until the vendor is able to restock their supplies.
Dang it! And, just when I was getting good at building those buckle belts! I’ll keep you posted!
Wishing everyone a beautiful weekend! Be safe out there, especially if you’re going to be running around food shopping for last minute Thanksgiving Day stuff. HA! Love, Jxoxo
November 5th. Happy Friday Y'all!!
Just wanted to drop in and give you an update on the release of the Galaxy of Star gown sets & masks. I should have the waiting list orders from the Dawn convention completed & sets that will be releasing on the website, by the end of today. Giving me all day tomorrow (Saturday) to package them. If all goes well, I’ll release the Galaxy of Stars fashions & accessories this Sunday (November 7th) around 3pm Central Texas time.
Look for another update message tomorrow (Saturday).
Please know that I haven’t gotten into my emails yet but I will be reading and replying to them tomorrow. Thank you all for your support & patience. Chat more tomorrow! Enjoy your Friday! Love, Janet xoxo
10/29/2021. Happy Friday Y'all!!
Happy Halloween!! Hope you find magic & mischief everywhere you look!
Great news! If all goes well, I should be releasing to the website next weekend, the Galaxy of Stars gown collection. Midnight Starlet & Silver Starlet. The set will include the gown, satin lame purse & silver glittered crown. Extra accessories Midnight Masquerade Mask, Silver Masquerade Mask, and black cowboy hat with silver bucket band will be sold separately.
For those who requested any of these items at the Dawn convention last weekend, you will be receiving a separate email stating your items have been completed & are ready to ship late next week too.
Let me tell you a little bit about the Galaxy of Stars Collection. Currently I have a total of 10 different colors of star tulle. This is a stiff tulle, and it stands out, therefore using a taffeta fabric underneath is perfect. As I find the perfect taffeta fabric to match the star tulle, I will add a new gown set to the website. Not all gown sets will have an option of purchasing a match masquerade mask. They will only be made if the color feathers can be found to match the gown set. I can tell you this. The next gown set in this series could be Scarlet Starlet.
As for a holiday set this year. May be the “Golden Mask” to close out our 50th Anniversary celebration of Dawn. I also would like to end this year with another fashion couture set. It happens to have metallic golds in it too. HA! We shall see, it’s still pinned to one of my dolls.
Wishing you all a fun & safe Halloween! Have a spooky wonderful time!! Lots of Love J xx
10/23/2021. Happy Friday Y’all!!
Hope you’re having a great week! And that all our dolly friends made it home safely from the Dawn convention!
Let me say, the Dawn convention last weekend was amazing!! Just amazing!! I had a blast hanging out with doll friends, and meeting new doll friends. I won lots of fabulous items off the donation prize tables and I won one of the table centerpieces called “West Texas” created my Helen Hamberg. Here’s a photo of her. I fell totally in love with her and you can see why!
The goody bags were filled with some many awesome gifts too. Oh, and Helen’s & Tamy’s “Exploding Surprise” (I have to take some photos to share.) I was in ah! And our convention doll was the icing on the cake. Bought tears to my eyes. See, we had to mail-in our Dinah doll to use for the convention doll. I sent in a Dinah doll that Bill Schneider gave me where he had enhanced her makeup colors too. She’s now wearing a perfect outfit, in a perfect setting. She just loves her new setting and I think Bill would agree too. (Hope to get some photos to share real soon.)
A special shout-out to those who donated items and spent time creating all the wonderful things we were able to enjoy during our entire time. It’s was done in the love & appreciation of a shared passion for our little dolls. Thank you All, for everything you’ve done to make our Dawn convention a great success. And to our co-captains, as they call themselves Helen Hamberg and Tamy Ryan. For their vision, their creative talents, and their courage to host our 22nd Dawn doll convention during the most difficult times in modern history. Thank you!
Yes, I did release some new gowns & accessories at the convention during the Meet & Greet!! I’m afraid I let you down though. I wasn’t able to get any photos before the sale but I will get some taken and uploaded to the website.
Since this was my first time selling in person, I was a bit overwhelmed. Everyone was so gracious and kind. Thank goodness Mike (my husband) was there to save the day too! Here’s a photo I was able to take when Judi was kind enough to let me display her purchases so I could take a photo.
I named this collection of gowns “Galaxy of Stars.” Since I hadn’t done any gowns since Feb. 2020, and time was of the essence I thought this would be a great time to release them. First one in the series is called “Midnight Starlet, and the second one is names Silver Starlet.” I also made two masks, one “Midnight Masquerade & Silver Masquerade.” And one other item was a black cowboy hat called the “Black Silver Buckle," that I thought look great with "Formal Affair" tuxedo set.
All of these pieces are in production as I write, and just as soon as I have the all completed, I will post the information on this page, and send out a newsletter on how you can purchase any of these pieces.
Thank you all, so much for everything! Chat more soon!
Wishing you all a great Friday and have a wonderful weekend! Lots of love, Janet
Thursday, October 14, 2021. Happy October Y’all!
Let’s see if I can get you all caught up on the latest!
I’m packing my bags now and heading to the Dawn Convention! YAY!! I can’t wait to see everyone!
Please know, since I’ll be away from my computer, I won’t be able to respond to any of your emails until Monday, October 18th.
But before I leave today, I wanted to share some news!
Remember when I first started creating for Dawn and my fashions had my black & gold fashion labels inside?? Well, guess what? I found the vendor who made them for me, and he made me a big batch of those labels! This time they are white with black lettering! I’m so excite and I can’t wait for you to see them. YAHOO! No more paper tags. As a matter of fact my next designs have them inside.
Did you say, next designs? Okay, let me tell you this quickly! I have a little fashion collection with some accessories I plan to release at the Dawn convention this Friday night during the “Meet & Greet” opening. This is the first time I’ve ever had a sales table at any convention. I don’t have photos yet, and I’m keeping things under-wrap for now, since I’m still working on a few things. LOL!! One thing I will tell you is not to worry. Once I get back from the convention, I will take photos & upload them to the website with all the information you’ll need to purchase any of the pieces. So, what I’m saying is, my pieces aren’t exclusive only to the convention, it’s for all of y’all. So long as I’m able to get the supplies.
Oh, one more thing before I go! Having Daniel (eldest son) home from Vermont was fabulous!! Hadn’t seen him in over a year. We had a BLAST! Hated to see him go! Praying he’ll make it home for Christmas.
I’ll see some of you real soon! So, until Monday, stay cool & stay safe!
Enjoy the rest of your day, and have an awesome weekend!
Peace!! Love you always, Janet xoxo

Hope you’re all doing good & enjoy the spring weather. It’s been raining here on & off the past couple of weeks. This morning the sun is shining, the rain will hold off until late this evening. YAY!
We had an amazing time during my sister’s Michele’s visit! Her graduation went great, we had a fabulous graduation party here at my house, and the next morning we all traveled to the Galveston Island. Michele & her boyfriend flew, and Mike & I drove down there. We totally enjoyed ourselves. As a matter of fact, the photo I posted of the Hilton where we would be staying is actually the view from our room. It was amazing! We walked the beach every day, we floated around in the pool, sunbathed, went shopping and all the food choices & drinks we had were amazing. We didn’t want it to end! Looking forward to our next getaway!
So, I’ve been working quietly on the (no name yet) black & metallic gold tux. I just realized I haven’t made any Gary men’s wear since 2008. Dawn’s “Wrapped ‘n Gold,” is also in the making. Not sure when they will be released. More information to follow next week.
Enjoy the rest of your week & have an awesome weekend! Chat more soon! Love always, Janet xoxo
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

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

“For each petal on the shamrock this brings a wish your way:
Good health, good luck, and happiness for today and every day.
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.
Again, have fun! Enjoy! May God Bless you & yours & keep you safe & well! Chat more soon!
Love always, Jxoxo

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.

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 14th! Happy Valentine’s Day!
Hope you are able to spend the day with someone or something you love.

FYI: I should have the next sets of “Clara’s Dream” ready to ship later today. Tomorrow is a holiday, so the earliest they can be ship them would be on Tuesday. I’ll post more later on once I have them ready to ship. Also, hoping to finish up the remaining “Clara’s Dream” sets by next weekend too.
No new fashion’s will be released this week.
Have a great week! Stay warm, safe & be well! Janet xoxo
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!

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
Good morning! Happy Friday!! December 4th, 2020

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

November 6th, 2020. Happy Friday, everyone!!
There’s lots of sunshine here in Bowie today and I’m loving it! Planning on popping in my Hallmark, Signed, Sealed & Delivered DVD’s and get to sewing! HA!
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.
New fashion update. Currently at this time there is no new fashion release information. Stay tuned.
May you enjoy your Friday, and have a fun filled weekend despite all the craziness around us lately!

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

Sunday, June 14, 2020. Great NEWS!!!
For those still waiting and hoping for the Mother of Pearls fashion set. The ivory wool boucle fabric arrived and I just opened it. To my surprise, it’s actually the perfect match! Unbelievable! 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!

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).
Next fashions!! No new fashion release for this week. I’ll keep you posted.
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. Love always, Janet xxxx

Hoping most of you have received your new fashion/fashions from the last weekend’s show.
I’ve started on the waiting list fashion orders. I’m having to retire the “Sweet Champagne’” dress set too. The new dye lot color for the champagne satin is much darker than the original satin I used to create this design.

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
