MCP 10/52

Theme: Childhood Toys

My mom has kept lots of our old toys and my nieces are taking full advantage. But here, 180 miles east of my parents' house, I don't have too many of my childhood toys.  However, I do have my favorite doll.  As far back as I can remember, Honey was with me.  I even loved off her first set of clothes, and my mom, being the fantastic seamstress that she is, sewed a new outfit directly on to Honey's little body.  She is battle weary and has ears full of blue ink, but I guess it just proves how much I loved her.

MCP 9/52

So, the theme this week is "Express Yourself."  I have a co-worker who is a bit of a goof.  When I got to work on Tuesday, my birthday, this is what I found on my desk.  Creative expression for sure!
