 Hello Everyone, by now you are all very familiar with THE Ghastlies.
I would have loved to show you so much more but I have taken ill, and this is 
something I had done in my healthier days. Perhaps in a few weeks
you may return and I will have something else here to show
you that I whipped up.

For now, this new Mammy Doll complete with a Ghastlies Apron.
I was thinking of making this one for me in life size too.
What do you think? With pockets and places to put
all of my pins and scissors?

Thank you for dropping by and I am feeling a bit 
better, just seeing you here.

Snap Joy, Cheryl.

Here are my other Sistahs you may want to visit today..
