  1. Enjoyed this post and visited all the blogs on the tour. Thanks for the info. I don't have a photo to properly enter the contest, but will send in a pic of my daughter wearing the Queen Amadala costume I made for her. She came to we with a barbie doll one day I said she wanted the same outfit. It was a collector version of the Queen. How could I say no.


Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
