Crafting with Lillie Mae's July 2011





I want to thank everyone who has graciously mentioned me in their prayers.  So far nothing has shown up in any of the tests.  I still have an EEG to be done and I do have to start B12 shots. 


Thank you everyone...




Help with Doll Hairstyles

Over the years, I've had several internet friends and fellow doll-makers ask for some advice and tips on styling their prim/Annie's hair. 


I have to tell you that with each new doll I create, I never know, until the last moment, what I'm going to do with her hair. 


Well...like you all, I'm always looking for new and different styles for my dolls.  So...here are some "hair tips" I found for you.  I sincerely hope these help.

Prayer Requests


I'm asking for prayers for myself.  I've had a couple of blackout incidents which thus far no cause has been found.  I'm scheduled for an EEG, carotid Doppler, and other lab tests.  I do believe they think the cause might be from a mini stroke or a TIA, however, there has been no residual.


They did discover that I'm very deficient in vitamin B12 and vitamin D so I am starting on supplements and shots for those.


I'm usually the one taking care of everyone else so this is really new for me. 


Thank you much everyone,

I love learning new crafts!!!


For me, learning a new craft is just nothing but fun.  I don't want it to be work, I don't want to have to read through paragraph after paragraph of directions and instructions while I try to figure out what I'm really suppose to do next. 


With E Craft Classes, there is no second guessing.  The lessons are numbered, pictured, clear and concise. 


How fun and easy is that!!!


Just pay for your class, download it and your on your way...I LOVE it!!!

Hi Heather,

I'm so sorry. I just received your phone message last evening and was going to call you today. We have Magic Jack for our home phone (it works on your computer through the internet) and it rarely works. My cell phone number is 765-212-4290 or leave me a number and best time to call you.

I have the message you left about my carotid Doppler on June 1 and 4 p.m. Is there anything I need to do for preparation for this? I understand I can't have the EEG done there, but I prefer not to go to BMH if possible.

Thanks much,
Brenda 301
