About Cindy's Dolls

Many of the dolls that Cindy makes clothes and accessories for are "rescues"--purchased from thrift stores and given new life. This is the story of one such doll.

Here is the doll as purchased--in need of cleaning, for sure. And that hair! Cindy uses various products to tame doll's hair, and lots of patience. 

The doll has been cleaned and is getting a new hairdo.

Here is the styled hair:

From Our Travelers in Mexico

(Note to our snowbirds from Karen L:  Cathy K., Jody, Karen B. and Susan have gone to Mexico for 3 weeks of intensive Spanish language classes.  They arrived last Sunday and each is living with a host family.  I expect they will see and do lots of cool things.  I will continue to forward messages as I hear from them.) 

Here is Karen's forwarded message from Jody: 

The four of us went to a cooperative of women from original people (they prefer original to indigenous). We shared a taxi and went over winding roads to Chixilton. The women expected us so I am very glad we went. We all bought beautiful things, which we can show off in September. The taxi driver took a bunch of pictures of us with Claudia, who was our host and translator. We are all getting as much Spanish as our brains will hold. Miss you all.
