Biff Goes on the Road


Biff has a forever home in Spokane Washington, and as a going away gift John from WoodworksbyJohn.com made Biff a custom skate board. Here's a picture of You and Me Doll, Biff with his new board.

Goth Girls?

My husband saw the two newest You and Me Dolls and said "Oh, the Goth Girls". I said that's catchy but that isn't the reason they have mostly black clothing.


Their names are Amy and Amaryllis
This is You and Me Doll, Amy

This is You and Me Doll Amaryllis

The story is that these two You and Me dolls love to watch Project Runway on thursday nights. Amy and Amaryllis are always talking over the judges saying things like "the pants don't fit right" or "she looks ten feet tall in that". Amy wanted to be like Michael Kors and wear all black, than Amaryllis chimed in "me too". So I gave in, but told them I would add some color also to lighten things up. 


back view of Amaryllis
If you see Amaryllis in my Etsy shop there is something you should know about her, she has a birth defect. Below the "booty" on the back, her You and Me Dolls tag got caught in her leg seam. She is a little embarrassed about this but I told her no one would love her any less.

Are Dolls all Fluff?

Those of you that know me, know me as a painter and may wonder why dolls?
Are dolls just fluff or worse yet fu-fu? My answer is an emphatic no!
Children that are involved with imaginative, creative play are more likely to solve our societies' dilemmas as adults.
Little Suzie next door will one day run the world's finances

and

Little Tommy down the street will one day be your Doctor




Just look at this from  "The Power of Magical Thinking" by Shirley S. Wang:

child-development experts are recognizing the importance of imagination and the role it plays in understanding reality. Imagination is necessary for learning about people and events we don't directly experience, such as history or events on the other side of the world. 

Or this from "The Importance of Imagination", 
Children that are able to get away from it all and place themselves, mentally, in another world are more likely to be able to think "outside the box" and produce more creative results when learning and working. For this reason, the importance of imagination cannot be underestimated and should be encouraged when raising children.Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/1006190
Simple toys and dolls are the perfect vehicle to free the imagination! The creative kids of today are the decision makers of tomorrow. 
What do you think about this subject? Let me know-

Allie Rocks

September is definitely the best month of the year in Las Vegas. The plants are loving the break from the scorching heat of summer. Allie and I were outside this morning enjoying the yard.
You and Me Doll Allie, trying to grab a flower, (she almost did a face plant into that bush)

She was really stoked when she found this rock for her collection-
and resting in the shade...

Another great day in Las Vegas

Chip and Biff

I've heard several times "why don't you make a boy doll?" So thought it would be a fun idea. Here is Chip and Biff, they are twins (not identical) because they came out of the sewing machine on the same day. The guys have "denim pants" and "t-shirts"with a pocket.
You and Me Doll, Chip
Chip likes the outdoors, he'd like to go camping some day.


You and Me Doll, Biff
Biff loves to go to the park on Saturdays and skateboard.

I came home from work yesterday and found them having a pillow fight. It started when Chip tried to grab the $20 bill out of Biff's pocket  (I put it there to show Etsy people they could be a gift holder). Anyway I can see I'm going to have to watch them-
