Big Day Today


Today was a big day for us! It was Mikey's first day of Pre School. I was a little bit worried that he was going to have a melt down when we dropped him off, since he has never been away from us. But the only one melting down was me lol. He was very excited to go to school, and made some new friends. He can hardly wait to go back on Monday. Today was just a practice run :) . 

I have been busy working on some new items for Christmas, they will be listed on the DIVAS SITE 
on the 1st of the month.  I hope you stop by to see them! Here is a sneak peek of one of my new Santa's.

Fall is in the air!

Fall is in the air! The weather is finally cooling down where you can be outside and be comfortable! I have been busy with cutting wood, which I haven't done in such a long time, as well as preparing for Christmas. I am working on some new dolls, as well as doing some of my old favorites. Mikey is excited about Halloween this year, and he is going to be a pirate, I can't wait to get pictures of him all dressed up. Having a little one around sure makes the holidays extra special. Just to see the excitement in their eyes is just so special! 

I would like to remind you that new items are listed every month on the DIVAS SITE  We update on the 1st, and the 15th, We are adding new artists too! If you are interested in joining our team make sure you click on the tab at the top that says join us!

Looking Back

Sometimes I wish I could turn back the hands of time, even just for a day to relive the wonderful childhood that I had!  This time of year brings back so many wonderful memories of a time long past when the streets were safe, neighbors looked out for each other and times were simpler. 

I grew up in a small Village right outside of Buffalo, NY  it had to be the closest thing to "Mayberry" there ever was. The Village of Kenmore had so much to offer it's residents. A beautiful park, that had a wading pool for the little ones in the summer and in the winter it was flooded for ice skating. There were tennis courts, baseball diamonds, volley ball courts, swings, slides, and merry go rounds. But beyond the "things" there was a neighborhood of people that looked out for one another, 

Neighbors reached out in times of trouble, offered a helping hand, and a shoulder to lean on. Oh what I wouldn't give to have times like that now! 

It makes me sad to see how much things have changed. Somewhere along the line, people have become self centered. It is no longer what can I do to help a friend or neighbor, but what do I get.  People no longer reach out to help someone in need, they are too busy with activities, things and the next biggest, best toy. 

It's time for everyone to take a long hard look around and see how they can help make a change. Who can you reach out to and give a helping hand?  Even if it is something small like holding a door opened, a friendly hello, or a smile. Each one of us CAN make a difference!  One baby step at a time, reaching out, making this world a better place.
