Still Looking for a Band Name

From left to right: Chris, Deanna, Ariah, Acadia (guest singer), Julie, JD
Last week was busy, right up through the weekend. Our band played music at yet another very successful summer party at Julie & Pat's house. And we still don't have a band name. It seems next to impossible to get five people to agree. And when we do like a name, a quick Google search tells us there's already a band with that name. It's a bit frustrating.

Hoffman Challenge winner!

I'm so excited! While in my PALS class yesterday (Pediatric Advanced Life Support), I found out that my Hoffman doll Milena won first place! I'm absolutely thrilled. They should be posting the 2016 fabric soon.

The photos of winning dolls aren't on the site yet, but here's the link:

Be sure to check out some of the other Hoffman participants, too:

A Last minute doll for ODACA Day

I'm leaving for the airport in just over 12 hours, for ODACA Day in Kansas City. Much to my satisfaction, I was able to finish one more doll to take to sell. This one is about 18 inches tall, and is a hybrid of a pattern by Cinders and my own design.

As you can see, my cat had to get in on the photo shoot.

I just wish I had a few more dolls to take with me.

Happy Independence Day!

I'm off to work in a bit. I know it's going to be a busy day in the ER - it certainly was yesterday! I heard an estimated 30,000 people were coming to the north Oregon coast for the holiday weekend. Let's hope people make good choices this year.

Hoffman Challenge 2015

Just finished my Hoffman Challenge doll!

If anyone out there has a Hoffman doll, I'd love to add your photos to my Hoffman pages (even if you missed the deadline). The more the merrier!
