Oh my goodness! I’ve been without a computer since July? August? ARRRGH!!! It’s been absolutely aggravating. Well, no longer! Today a beautiful new iMac was delivered to my house and I’ve been uploading photos and sorting them into folders.
I posted a few “placeholder” blog posts in the past few months which I’ll be updating and I’ll be writing up some posts on the doll meets that we’ve held in the last half a year shortly. Thank you everyone for following my small updates on Facebook and twitter 🙂
More to come soon!

Two of our walls had no insulation whatsoever, which explained the heat loss in the winter time and why it was so noisy when people walked up the stairs outside – you can see the bare brick wall below. Also, there was linoleum under the carpet @__@”
Here’s everything stripped down to the bare wood frames:
