Old but yet Always Some Thing New

I was emailing a doll friend, Sharing with her a couple of my old had for ever ,but could not do with out doll books. So thought I'd share with you all also.
These are  OLD books I have kept for years and use lots, you might be interested..
I don’t know how long they will be in print..
I have been making dolls, over 18 years, yet I still use and reuse info from my doll books, No matter what doll I am working on.
Couple years ago I down sized , and had to turn around and buy a couple of my favorites back, Because I missed them, Now believe me what I do have are mine for ever! Big Smile*
Don't think just because your happily growing in your skills, talent, that you don't need the goodies but oldies any more, They still amaze and teach you, Hope you enjoy
(((Hugs))) Sherrie
