I don't know exactly what spurred this current obsession. I think it's been coming on for a while actually. John and I got Amanda a 18" Our Generation Doll from Target for Christmas. She loves it. She enjoys getting it dressed every day and putting Pajamas on her every night. Her name is Charlotte. It is a very fitting name.

Part of the problem I have is justifying the time spent. There are always so many things that need to be done. Laundry, dishes, running kids to and from events, homework, Usborne, etc. Not to mention all the knitting projects I have started. I have had to give myself permission to do this. It feels great to learn something new though. Makes me feel a little closer to my Grandma that I miss dearly and gives my Mom and I a whole new world of things to talk about.
What have you learned lately? What resources do you use? My favorite so far have been the library, youtube videos and blogs. There are so many wonderful people that share their knowledge on blogs and message boards. Keep reading and trying new things.
