 My daughter sews
 and crochets. This
summer, as in summers
past, she has made outfits
 to fit 18" dolls, each tested
 on her American Girl
 Samantha doll, which we
 sell at the Detroit Library
American Girl reception.
Then she shifts to creating
outfits for 11" dolls used by
the Goodfellows to give to
 needy children at Christmas
A friend coordinates library
 staff dressing these naked
dolls for the Goodfellows.
 Becca made 18 or 20 outfits,
some sewn, some crocheted.
She is truly amazing!

She also used some tiny beanies we had laying around the house as pets for some of the dolls!

Creativity is frequently interrupted by reality. Since I last posted I have creatively driven my middle daughter to Maine to start grad school, furniture included to a three story walk up. No comment, I'm still out of breath. Then home to pack up my son and drive him back to his dorm and year two as an undergraduate, of course to the other side of the state. By the time I turned in the rental truck I had driven 2,483.7 miles.

Then I volunteered to create a slideshow for the 20th Anniversary Gala Event for the Great Lakes Beadworkers Guild. I have battled the portability of video files. I should say their lack. The minute I emailed or copied to jump drive they were gone. The president and I decided they made it too long and substituted stills.

Then I discovered that the Holocaust Memorial website I had been managing was no longer operating and discovered the web host was no longer supporting the free sites, but didn't inform anyone. I have rebuilt it in Google sites. Feel free to visit-

I guess I was creative after all.
