Josephine Quinn

A precious baby girl was born at the end of June...Miss Josephine Quinn. Welcome to the world!

My customer asked if I'd be willing to attach the tag directly to the body in a heart shape. I am certainly willing to accommodate special requests at really just depends on what the request is. I think the heart is super cute sewn directly on the doll.

Now be a sweet girl, sleep well, eat well, and let mama and daddy get a little night-time sleep...

A Family of Supers

I received a request from a mom who wanted superhero capes for her four children. As our conversation continued, she decided that everyone in the family needed a and dad, too! It's a family of supers!!!

It turns out that dad is a real life super hero. He's a soldier and is currently deployed to Afghanistan. The plan is for him to wear his cape as a surprise for his children upon his return at Christmastime. Wow! What a sweet homecoming that will be! (And I'm not talking about the cape...)

Spending time working on these superhero capes opened my eyes to all the blessings right here at my fingertips. What must life be might like for this family?...a daily sacrifice, risk, separation, heart longings and physical longings, single-parenting, and so on. It's easy to go on about my normal day when it doesn't hit so close to home. I'm thankful for the reminder. I've spent much time praying for this particular family and others in their shoes over the past few weeks. May we all remember and pray for these families!

Thank you, "T" family, for your sacrifice for me and mine...

Superhero Capes

Never fear, the superhero capes are here!!! I'll be offering superhero capes for sale in my etsy shop on a regular basis from now on! For boys and girls! Customers choose two colors, an initial for the outside back, and can add a message tag to the inside similar to the ones hidden in a doll's secret heart pocket. The capes are reversible and come with a velcro closure. Keep watching for more listings! I'm in the process of making a whole family of supers right now!!!

But this cape is for JACK!
