|Polly's Doll House|
The other day I was browsing Bleuette on Ebay and stumbled upon Jean-and-Ken, Jean Nordquist's Ebay store. I couldn't believe the adorable new kits she had and began to wonder how I lost touch with her fabulous items. I do recall she had sold some of her business long ago, and the person who bought it could not deliver items in a timely manner. Hence, I lost interest.
|What fun to play in!|
Through these purchases, Jean and I began to write to one another and she's not only an amazing creative mind, but a treasure to know. Any artist that graciously allows another artist to offer ideas, is a dream. I mean that will all sincerity.

I'd recently acquired two sets of B.Shackman's Dollies on Their Travels paper dolls, and miniaturized one for Polly's doll house. I guess I'll have to make Polly a dress to match the paper doll's.
|Margie's Paper Store Toy|
Jean's mini kits are super easy and make up in a few minutes. One is this little folding paper store glued to a base of shiny gold paper. Margie is thrilled with her toy and it even matches the dress Arlene Hayes made for her.

The bead buttons for Katy's gaitors finally arrived today. Her blue coat outfit is done, save for finishing the gaitors, so I'll be sharing that shortly. And, I'm working on Polly's Snowshoeing Ensemble right now. Thank goodness for Jean's sweet toys and kits to give me a break when I need to simply play! You can also find her work at jeannordquistdolls.com or The Collectible Doll Company.
