Hello Vicki,
I have been excited about your Raggedy Ann and Andy ever since I received your first email about them. I can't order mine until Tuesday but I will be ordering them for sure then. I just wanted to tell you that Johnny Gruelle (the creator of Raggedy Ann) was born in a little town called Arcola, Illinois, in the house that my mom and dad bought. They have a Raggedy Ann and Andy festival every year, and one year we got to meet the son (Worth Gruelle) and his family.
Marcella was his sister and she died from a reaction to one of the childhood immunization shots that all children receive today. It was very exciting getting to meet the family and learn more about Raggedy Ann.
I have always loved Raggedy Ann, now more so because of our family's connection to her. I'm not trying to brag or toot my own horn, I just thought that I would share a little about Raggedy Ann with you that I know about.
Thanks for listening.
Connie Gawel

I just love hearing stories like this. It is a pleasure to share this story. Thank you Connie.

Karen's Babies.

Please say 'Hi" to one our newest distributors, her name is Karen Fox from Evergreen Park, IL . Karen became a distributor earlier this month and has taken off like a bullet. She has made tons of babies and is still going strong. I will post some of her dolls for you to take a look at. Karen is getting ready for the holidays that aren't that far away, if you want to have a good inventory, and she will.

Here is a picture of Zac from last Wednesday at the Special Olympics. He competed in the pentathlon, where he did the running long jump, the high jump, the shot put, the 100 meter and the 400 meter. He won the silver medal!!!!

He loves the Zac bear. He had to write to you when he saw it. He is feeling pretty good about himself right now. His silver medal win was announced at his school and it was announced in church. If he goes to state in June, he will have a large cheering section!

Love you!

This is who I named my new pattern, Zac "the Special Bear" for. He is my grand nephew and is very special. He is absolutely incredible and one of the greatest people I know. I am so happy to have him in my life. A portion of the proceeds from the Zac bear pattern will go to Autistic research.

I went to the The Women's Expo here in Arizona on Saturday, it was a great experience. Going to an event like this is sometimes far too crowded for me to enjoy, but I did enjoy my day. My feet hurt and the crowd was overwhelming but I would go again. I have lived here in the valley for over 17 years and have never gone to this event. Maybe I was afraid of the crowd of people, I don't know. The Expo has been going on for 15 years. I am just not too with it I guess. I have been missing out on a great experience. I would like to be a vendor next year and I think that I will start to research my options. This would be a great opportunity to bring visibility to my Dinky Baby business and to offer the opportunity to some women locally. If you are interested in your own cloth doll business, now is the time to get started.

Happy Friday the 13th, 2007.

So much is happening around here lately. New dolls are on the creation table, fur is here, new distributors are joining, DinkyBaby is growing.

Cloth dolls are coming back into their own again. As long as there are little girls, big girls and doll lovers, cloth dolls are always going to be around. I have been playing with dolls all my life and I have never tired of doing so. Just as men love there cars, women will always love their dolls.

This is a great time to join DinkyBaby and get your business rolling before the holidays get here. It may seem like a long way off, but before you know it you will be asking yourself why didn't you get started?

Learn to perfect your dolls this summer and stock pile them for the holiday bazaars that will be soon approaching. Make the doll clothes and get your little Dinky Babies dressed and ready to go. Take advantage of joining the team now and be ready for your business when the snow starts falling.

Just email me and ask for the details on how you can strat your own cloth doll business with
