This site was created and is primarily run by Jen (Zoey's mom). After a couple of years now of playing dolls with Zoey, crafting for them (and with them) and planning little doll adventures as well as parties and gatherings I decided that we should have a place to compile and share all of our ideas as well as to share our love of dolls with others...and that's what I hope this place turns out to be!
Now...a little about us:
Zoey loves dancing and takes ballet lessons weekly throughout the school year, she loves fairies and building fairy houses, reading, hiking and playing with friends. She also LOVES playing with dolls...American Girl dolls to be precise. Her first doll was a Just Like You doll which she named Zoe. Since then she has gotten several more dolls to add to her collection. She currently has Zoe, Kristen, McKenna Brooks, Emily Bennett, Julie Albright and Bella. Her Bitty Baby, Lucy, has been in our family since Zoey was just two years old.
I am Zoey's mother, (Jen) and I have to say that I too have been bitten by the doll love bug! I never imagined sharing a love of dolls with Zoey as much as I do and we're just deciding to go with it! As far as I am concerned...the less my daughter is "plugged in" to technology and gaming systems, etc. the better, and I am all for her enjoying being a child for as long as possible. Imagination and play go hand in hand and I love that this is something that we can both share together. In my eyes, it's not just a love of dolls and play that's going on...it's also creative writing, history lessons, exploration of arts and crafts, photography, role play, etc. When I am not playing dolls with Zoey I can be found at work (I am a preschool teacher at a Montessori school and do freelance design work for scrapbooking manufacturers), or attending to Zoey's various school functions or running her to and from dance classes. I love to bake, read, hike with family and friends and I also enjoy photography and blogging. I have one doll (which stays in Zoey's room with her doll family), Rebecca Rubin.
