...just GIDDY...we've been Published!

Yes! It's true! Creating Country Threads has a beautiful 3 page spread on our project. I'm not able to upload the article yet, as I'm posting from the library, but I should be able to upload pics of the article by the end of this weekend. Nicole contacted me last year about doing an article in the publication and we sat and asked and answered questions and really, I forgot about it. Well...thanks to newcomer, Fahy Rolfe, I realized that, WOW there is an article out there about us. Indeed, the next day in the mail I received my copy of the magazine. BEAUTIFUL!! The artwork is wonderful, the article, very true and well represented. Just a fantastic tribute to all of us! (I can't seem to get away from the exclamation points!!) This is just kind of like teasing you on Christmas Eve with just one small present without being able to open all the big Kahunas until later...sorry.

Now if that isn't just about enough wonderful news for one day...there is MORE...
Please help me welcome Elizabeth Beglin, she is going to be our Australian Comfort Doll Project Contact! I know, it is so cool! Elizabeth contacted me wanting to know if there were any specific Women's Shelters that I send to in Australia, as the postage to the States can be outrageous. No, there wasn't BUT...I threw it out to her that it would be wonderful if we had an Australian contact. She graciously accepted! So, now, we are on 2 they come more exclamation marks...!!!!!
I will get a standing page with Elizabeth's information on it soon, but in the meantime, Australia, here is her information:

Yes, it does appear that I have been Missing On Internet.

I have to confess that as of this moment, I'm posting from the library, we don't have internet service this summer...rule #1: don't preview your post...just hit post...

OK first a thanks to everyone who is still checking in and following. You are wonderful! A giant WELCOME to all who are new! I'm waiting to hear back from a contact in Australia who may have some exciting news for us so....that's just a teaser for you guys. I'll fill you in when it's a true "Go".

Dear Patti, you are amazing. Once again I've received dolls from Patti. Folks, just to let you know, she is one of the most diligent of us on keeping dolls coming in, so, while reading this, if we could all just send some wonderful warm hugs of thanks her way...I know they would be well recieved.

Also, a huge HOORAA for....arrrrghhh...where's my piece of know who you sent the wonderful box full of 20+ dolls. (like I said I'm at the library and I forgot my list)...any way...I will make sure I get some pics and give credit where credit is due...the dolls are ALWAYS such a hoot!

So, that is all for now, I can't tell you how much everyone's involvement in this project means. I'm sure though, that you all do know, and that is how you have found your way here.

Love, Smiles, and Hugs to All,
