Number #1- I would really like to finally get this beautiful doll!!! Ivy has been on my list for more then two years. I am saving for her now.

Number #3- I would love to build a Doll House for my American Girl Dolls. I am so inspired by all the doll houses I have seen and reviewed I really would like to build one of my own.

Number #4- Complete an Ana White design from her amazing free wood working patterns

Number #5- Learn to make a doll quilt, quilting is something I have not done yet.
Number #6- I would love to knit another doll sweater or at least a hat...wish me luck this scares me still!

Number #7- Add more items to my Etsy shop, finding time to do so to sew and craft then list, lofty goal I know!

  1. I can help you with #5! I have made many quilts and have just made two dolly quilts, with coordinating mattresses & pillows for my daughter for Christmas. I am sending you an e-mail with links that will help. I'm sure you will have this one checked off before the end of January.

  2. We will probably be in Seattle in July for a family wedding. Let's meet up!

    We would love to see your Etsy shop, what's the link?

    Dollsandfunstuff from Etsy is on vacation right now, but makes really cute boy dolls out of OG dolls for $50!. (where we got Danny). You should check her out!

  4. Wow , That is a big list! If anyone can do it it's you! I would love to meet up with you some time at the AG store some time. I live 15 minutes from it. My goal this year is to get more involved in the doll community! Happy New Year to you and your family! Adele
