    Praying for Michaela to win not just because she deserves the prize of a weekend getaway. But because I truly believe her gift of writing is basically STELLAR!!!! This is a blog that can be read like a book from start to finish. A love story and life story.

    You have to read Joelle Walker’s “Kid Hangover”, if you are a. O, it will bring back memories that will both make howl with laughter, or reduce you to tears. She has a real talent to combine humor and motherly love. And she’s got the exasperated with dazed dad/husband covered as well. Sorry Dave, nothing personal. Read her, and decide for yourself, but she’s got my vote.

    Lyndsay’s ability to write from the heart makes me experience several different emotions from reading her blog. She can be funny, emotional, thankful and sad all in one short sentence: the markings of an excellent and gifted writer. It takes a lot of guts to share with the world her chemo experiences.

    Karen brings everyday insights, projects, the human factor, and products to doll aficionados. She brings ‘doll play’ back to life for those of us considered to old, the wrong gender, etc. to be interested in dolls and their or rather our stories. She lats imagination have a forum with tea, sophistication and a quirky smile.
    The cancer survivor and her hairless doll than her, the twenty-something guy starting his doll collection thank her, as well as the stay-at-home-mom and admin secretary; both doll collectors.
    Without Karen, none of us would have an outlet or a common craziness ^_^!
