There was another little Club Little House emergency. One of our members' homes suffered a flood and her contribution was ruined. Needless to say she's had other things on her mind. I hope she's able to get things back to normal as well as she can.

Meanwhile, Susan, who was the second volunteer for the last emergency, has stepped in to save the day. She's shipping her 12 littles out today to arrive to me later this week.

Kerry's are due to arrive any day and with that, all submissions will be here finally.

I have to do something next swap to prevent drop-outs. We had 2 emergency last minute drop-outs and about 6 others. Maybe the thing to do is to put the responsibility on the member who cannot fulfill the commitment to find a replacement. Or I just need to collect a list of back ups at the time of sign up. I have to do something or else I think I could drive myself absolutely crazy. Let me know your thoughts, please.

I have a couple of elves (Pam and Lorraine) coming to help bundle up all of the member packages. Before that, I have just a little bit of administrative stuff to do to make that go a bit smoother.

If you live in the DC metro area and would like to join in to help, let me know.


Amy's Father

Amy has posted this on her blog about her father:

I'm heading southward today to be with my father. He's in the hospital after being very ill for 2 weeks.
Will you say a prayer for him to be back on his feet soon?

I'm still waiting for submissions to arrive from:

Karen C.

Please make sure they arrive to me by Wednesday of this week at the very latest.PLEASE Send them today! Or better yet, yesterday!

And will you email to let me know when you've sent them with tracking numbers? Thanks!

Pink Bee/ sneak peak

Last night while trying to come up with a way to show those who wanted a peek at my CLH littles and not showing it to those who didn't -I came up with a wonderful new idea for my blogging. So if you want a peek click here for the info :)


sneak peeks!

I don't know about any of you, but I am loving the sneak peeks! But I respect that some people are more patient than I am so I have posted photos on my blog for those of you who want a little peek! I love a good suprise but sometimes it's just too much to wait!!

CLH for our boys?

Totally acknowledging that Amy has full veto power on all CLH ideas and suggestions, I'd love to know if other CLH contributors have sons who are enjoying the swapping as much as their daughters? My 7-year-old son has loved both the swaps and watching me make things for the swaps and in the interest of nurturing his creative/gentle spirit as much as my daughter's, I'm wondering if there would be any interest in a "boys in mind" CLH swap?

I'm seeing miniature dart boards, baseball cards, furniture and cooking supplies in darker colors, boys' books and magazines, animals galore, (maybe a miniature aquarium?), mini mini legos, board games, etc. All stuff that girls would like too...but more boy focused.

Again, it doesn't mean it will happen, but I'm curious if there's interest?

ROSANNA: my pink littles from Italy

I don't want to ruin the surprise for anyone who wants to be surprised so look away.

I'm so happy and lucky to have 24 swap partners in Amy's most amazing swap! I am sending both the little dollhouses and candy machine for each of my partners to get.

This was a lot of fun and I can't wait for you to get them. They should arrive at Amy's door any day now.

Love and hugs to all of you,
Rosanna from Italy



One of the members who I hadn't heard from just emailed to say she wouldn't be able to send in her littles due to a series of family emergencies. I pray everything will be okay in her world and that all will settle down soon.

In the meantime, we have a little problem...I know this is terribly late notice but would any of you like to submit another dozen littles, thus participating in 2 rounds of the 4? You wouldn't need to send the same things but you most certainly can, if that's easier for you.

The catch is that I'd need them to arrive to me by the end of next week, at the latest.

Any takers?

Sweet Miss June has saved the day! I've heard from all of the members and we are all set.

To those who have outstanding submissions, please try to get them to me by next week at the latest. Thanks!


you guys rock!

Oh my glory be! You people are a little crazy. Crazy good! I can't believe how fabulous the littles are that you've sent my way. They are AMAZING. And so are you!
