Sew A Purse For A Great Cause

One of our wonderful readers pointed this project out to me and thought some of you may be interested in participating. Sew Powerful and Liberty Jane (the people behind Pixie Faire)have come up with an incredible way of helping girls in Zambia attend school. "The purses you provide are used in local schools and clinics in Lusaka Zambia as part of Menstration Hygiene Management (MHM) programs. This simple gift – combined with re-usable sanitary pads and health information can make a tremendous difference in the lives of adolescent girls. Read about the amazing results of our 2014 Sew Powerful Purse Project here. Our ministry partners work hard to educate and inform the girls in their community so that they stay in school and grow in confidence and self-esteem. It really is sew powerful!"
This is an amazing program and if you can help sew a purse and mail it before October 1 to the address provided in the link you will be making a difference in the life of another person. 
Thank you to reader Darlene for alerting me to this wonderful project.

Toys R Us Journey Girl Jack Pot!

Toys R Us is the home of the Journey Girls and Madelon hit the jack pot on a recent trip into her local Toys R Us store.
Journey girl's are lovely dolls but they are very popular right now for their furniture sets and accessories.
Their accessibility and price make their line one I am very happy to promote
 The sets are high quality and have lots of play potential!
One of my favorite pieces from their collection is this shelf!
They have new outdoor furniture sets and fun living room sets that wont break the budget and will fit very well in your dolls house!
they have fluffy fun pets too!
I also think they put together fun accent pieces and most everything  in htis set will fit an American Girl Doll.
Just becareful when buying the clothing sets as the Journey Girls are much thinner then the American Girl Dolls so clothing is not always a perfect fit, same with shoes!
The shoes are usually longer then an AG foot so keep that in mind when purchasing.
These dolls would make a lovely addition to your doll family so you may want to think about bringing them home to your doll lover this holiday season!
Thank you Madelon for sharing these photos with us today. You can find Journey Girls in both the USA and Canada at Toys R Us in store or on line.
