Somerset Life and My Slip-Ins!



I am so very proud and excited to report that my Slip-Ins are featured in the current and beautiful Autumn 2008 issue of Somerset Life magazine.
There is the story about them as well as more pictures of them and a how to make your very own! See them on pages 72, 73 and 74. I am SO happy!!! And I must point out that these little slip-ins are only 3 to 4 inches tall. They look bigger in the magazine.

Beautiful Christine! I may have to try to find that issue somewhere. They aren't available near home, but maybe when I'm out of town I can find one.
I still have the pretty little paper doll you sent to me a couple years ago.
Keep up the fantastic work!

Well done you! And what about that other, eh hem, publication?

Did I tell you that Williamsburg has suspended my other two dolls because they're re-doing the store? I hope the suspension does not become permanent. Also, somebody dropped my George Washington and they're sending him home for repairs. Good thing the General fared better than his likeness -- or we might still be British subjects!
