I love to read and I hope you do too. I have dyslexia and have struggled for many years to learn to enjoy reading. I love the American Girl Mysteries and I think you will to, check them out at your local library or purchase them at your local bookstore or second hand book shop.


  1. You have an amazing story, Karen. Even through your struggles, you have accomplished so much in the doll lovers community. It is great having you join our circle of friends at Maru and Friends! :)

  2. I love reading your blog everyday. It really cheers me up. I'm glad there is another adult that enjoys playing with dolls. You are a wonderful friend a the perfect role model. Thanks for all your work. - carol (skippysmom)

  3. I love your blog! I read it every day! It gives me so many great ideas! Keep up the good work! Thanks Karenmomofthree!

  4. Hi Karen I love your blog as all of the others. I am fairly new at this, so I need all the help that I can get. I have one doll and I love to sew for her but again I am a beginner, this keeps me from being stress. Take care and continue to do all that you are doing for beginners like me. Thanks!

  5. Hello Karen! I own a bean bag company and we just launched our new "LiL Me" line of super adorable bean bags for dolls! Would you mind taking a quick look and seeing if you may be interested in doing a review? Thanks for your time!



  6. Hello Karen, I've been reading through your blog for the last week. I must say you are amazing. All of the blogs you write and participate in plus keeping up with Brandy's creations and Madelon's finds. You are very inspiring.
    I have 7 18" dolls, 2 Our Gen dolls, 1 Tolly Tot and 4 BFC Ink all found in thrift stores. I sew clothes for them from patterns ( adult and children sizes) I find in thrift stores. I have 3 Grand- daughters, I hope with inspiration from your blog that by the time they are old enough to care for these dolls I will have them well set up.
    Thank You so much for everything you do. Colleen

  7. How wonderful to hear from you Colleen! Thank you so much for your kind words! I can not wait to hear how the Grands do with the dolls! Please keep in touch!
