Today has been a nightmare..modern science/technology is having a very troubling day.  First it started with my yahoo mail...tons of error messages saying "sorry, we're working on it"..tried for over an hour to send a message with photos attached..finally just sent a message and told them to visit here to see the photos.  I then went to one of my yahoo groups and tried to post photos..again trouble..only 1 photo went through..the rest who knows where they ended up.  Back to yah...

More drama in trying to show more creations...why does posting photos have to be a nightmare?  I spent the majority of today just trying to post photos..normally takes an hour at most.  Today it was post a entry in my blog..then try agin..grrrr!   So here we go again.  The "Blue Faery-Self Portrait" sculpture is the other doll travelling to the Wiltwyck Quilters Guild-doll exhibit..she will be displayed, along with "Timeless", and they will also be for sale at the sho...

Well waiting until after 9 PM seemed like a good idea when several photos finally were posting in the "Timeless" album in the photo gallery..but then I wanted to add 1 more...a back view of her in all her finery.  Well I guess I tested fate...the photo wouldn't post..here we go again!  So here's "Timeless" a back view..enjoy!

Why is it such a nightmare to try to post photos!  I had to rename the ones I wanted to post and it finally let me post the one of "Timeless" on the previous blog post..so I thought all is good..went back to post the photos in the album...nope...won't work....grrrrrrrrrrrrr!  So I guess this post will be an update of the new photos..let's see how many I can post before I get a error message...my patience is shot!

Well I Did Have Good Intentions

:|Sometimes we have a plan to make improvements in our lives but then in a blink of an eye time has flown by and those plans just fell through.  This was the case of being a better blogger and also to give more time to making this website better.  Good intentions...but not achieved. 

Well time is now to pull myself up and get busy!  Forget looking back over past promises and goals..they are behind me..on to what I plan for the future.

Trying to keep promise

I have promised in the past to be more active on my blog..and I see that promise didn't hold up too well.  One year is way too long to have between posts..so here I try again to catch up.

The buyer of the Maestro ( album for him here so you can see how he was made)..has mentioned she may want an Opera Singer to keep the Maestro company so I have been busy researching costs and styles of materials that would compliment both the Maestro and the buyer's home.  If this project doe...

Dreams Are Still Dreams

My last posts telling of my cramped over full studio and plans of a new studio are where I still stand....dreaming.  Too many issues came up that deemed a studio a "non-essential" expense...I'm crushed!  So I keep dreaming of the "someday" and wishing on stars..hey it doesn't hurt to try all avenues!

Working in a chaotic studio is difficult but not impossible.  2011 was another year of busy sewing with many projects/challenges and I loved every one of them too!  I ha...

Floor Plan

This is a rough sketch of what the inside of the new studio will look like.  I realize there are flaws with dimensions..and of course..human error will be sure to prove that all the items that "should" fit in the new studio may need adjusting.  Be prepared to see a posting of craft materials for sale..it may come to that!

Visitors to my site have seen the chaos I call my "studio".....a tiny room that is crammed floor to ceiling with all the goodies it takes to create DibbleDabble1Dolls products.

So many materials...so little space!l  The lower left corner of the second photo shows a glimse of the fabrics.  I am currently using 2 heavy duty steel shelving units..6'tall x 18"deep x total of 8'wide...all of it is fabric!...
