My Blog is finally coming along !!!

I am so excited ... I finally sat down and work on my Blog which had suffered a text-alignment problem that could not seem to be fixed, but yesterday with a lot of love and a great deal of patience, I was able to correct the problem and it now has a brandnew face ... Even though my Blog has not yet made public, I have been posting little messages here and there and pictures of old and new Dolls ... Some pics are of work still in progress too ... Hope you have a wonderful evening ... I am so happy for you, for me, and yes; for my Blog ... hehehe ... Love, Jesse !!!
