I am playing around with some different styles for my blog - please bear with me while I play. I kinda like this one because it's easy to see the content of past-posts without having to go into them from the Archive. I might leave it like this for a bit, but I still have a few things to figure out.
Yesterday I was telling you about the Chatty Cathy I got in the mail. If you have been following me for awhile you will already know why I love these dolls so much. Suffice to say she was THE doll of my childhood. I asked for her for Christmas from 1962 until I was no longer a child, but Santa never did bring her. I played with my friends CC's, every girl on the block had one (but me), but it wasn't until a couple of years ago that I actually owned one myself. I have 3 Chatty Cathy's now, and they seem to have formed quite a bond. I have had the idea running around my brain for some time to write some sort of story based on Chatty Cathy.
Finally I started TWO different stories. One a chapter book, and one a children's picture book. I decided that it would be neat to pose my dolls in scenes in the books and take images for the books, instead of having an illustrator.
