Packing Up

Sorry things have been so very quiet lately... I have been deep in the mire of the business of moving.  We are all very excited about the new house, but not so much about the packing and impending move.  I have started a bunch of different things but have yet to actually finish anything and am not sure whether I actually will or not before all of my supplies get packed up.   One kid goes back to school this week, the other will be homeschooling, and the day job is keeping me busy as well. But fear not... I have many, many ideas swirling around in my head, dolls I want to make, modifications of some of my designs and rest assured that as soon as we get into our new place in a few weeks my supplies will be unpacked and organized and the steady hum of my sewing machine will fill my new sewing area!

I was recently asked to contribute a photo for a super fun project for someone I adore ... I can't say any more about it now but I will let you know when it is all done!  Speaking of fun collaborations, The Melamoose Co. has teamed up with Etsy shop Roses and Rhubarbs for some super fun doll outfits.  This is sold out, but a little moose told me there is more dolly loveliness.

Also, I am planning on doing another $1 Apple Dumpling Doll when we reach 2000 fans on Facebook so please tell your friends about Apple Tree House.  For those of you who may not know, a $1 Apple Dumpling doll is just that... a doll that is sold for $1 (plus s/h) comment style on my Facebook fan page.  It is my way of saying thank you for helping spread the word about my little company.  Last time I checked, we are only about 170 away from that benchmark, so hopefully we won't have to wait too long.

Here's a little something fun, we have been singing this at our house to keep the kids from feeling blue about leaving the familiar behind:
