  1. I can't tell if they are too heavy but man I really like them. It is a neat look!!!
  2. I'm continuing to make the 8" dolls for my own holiday decorations. Lots to Love 8" Pilgrim Boy
  3. Lots to Love 8 Inch Pilgrim Boy
  4. Lots to Love 8 Inch Pilgrim Boy
  5. Wild turkeys. The road to the office my doctor was previously located at used to get swarmed with wild turkeys. The main road here on rare occasions has issues with Canadian geese crossings. They start to walk across and then decide to hang out and have a convention.
  6. Dropped the boxes off this afternoon and the woman I was supposed to see was unavailable but the women I did meet instead were blown away by your donations. They were mature women who clearly had an appreciation for hand made items and they immediately opened the boxes and were quite stunned by what they found. They didn't expect the quality or quantity of what was in those boxes. In the past the students have packaged the requests for the students they've been assigned so they've never seen the stuff as it goes directly from the high school students to the parents to have for Christmas/holiday celebrations. I don't think they see the raw donations that come in before the students put them all together to be sent on to the parents.

  8. I'm sorry I posted a thank you and a picture of your beautiful blankets in the FGM thank you posts back in Oct. I should have sent you a message as well and I forgot I am sorry. That's one of the reasons I wanted to thank people in the cards. It is too easy to forgot someone and all of you should be thanked for your hard work. We are donating directly to the children's group this year rather than the high school program as COVID has really screwed with school programs here. I dropped the items off today and they were blown away by the 9 boxes and the bag of dolls.
  9. Pumpkin Pie The Thanksgiving box is headed to the post office this afternoon and I couldn't be more thrilled. I started on a dragon puppet yesterday and he is rather cute for a dragon.
  10. Sorry got distracted when I posted this in other CAL this morning and it didn't make it here. I did find it kind of funny that the Walmart doll, clothing, and accessories wouldn't fit in the Walmart box and ended up in a Target box and the Target Doll clothing would only fit in the Walmart box. The Target dolls were too large for any of my boxes. Just need to find humor where we can these days. These should be at the donation center on Friday afternoon.
  11. I'm not sure I have the original boxes they came in and with the clothing they wouldn't have fit. I'm always shipping something out in boxes so they get switched around. We generally don't throw away boxes unless they are small as we always seem to end up needing a box to ship something. I just found it funny that when we started packing the stuff that the Walmart box could take the Target clothes because the dolls were clearly not going to fit in any box we had. The Walmart doll did fit with all the clothing and accessories but only in the Target box. Perhaps I'm overally tired but I did find it funny.

  13. Mr. Pilgrim The Thanksgiving box is going in the mail tomorrow and the donations will also be dropped off tomorrow afternoon. I have to download the pic of the boxes but I will post that too. It's been a busy few days.
  14. DH and I boxed the doll donations today and we have 9 boxes of doll items and one bag of the Our Generation dolls that wouldn't fit into any of the boxes. Grant it the boxes are all different sizes and I hope to get a picture of them before we drop them off hopefully at the end of this week but that is a considerable amount of work put in by everyone. Thank you so much!! We had to try 3 boxes to get one to fit all the doll blankets. You outdid yourselves!!!

  16. Mini Blueberry Pie
  17. Great project list. I love reading about other places. Mini Blueberry Pie Another play food item for the Thanksgiving box which I'm hoping to pack today so it can ship tomorrow. I sorted out all the donations last night so those can be boxed to head off to the charity as soon as I can get a time from them. I'm making progress.
  18. I am going to confirm with the woman after I get this donation done that if Aztec isn't able to be up and running next year, who knows what will be going on with the schools in the fall, that she will take the donations directly again next year. My first preference is to work with the high school kids and support their mission. However, the real intent is to get the toys to the kids.
