Shannon won the contest before last for guessing which kid I was in this picture: I’m the girl with short brown hair to the top right, underneath the outstretched arm of the boy on the chair. There are pictures of me on the “about” page and on my Twitter feed, so you can see how I turned out. She wrote:

Yaay! Lucky guess. :) I would looove to see the black and white 1700s dress colored in a golden yellow and royal (tending navy) blue with cream lace.

It reminds me of the other time I colored this gown, but it’s cute in its own right! I hope you like it, Shannon.

    I was looking through your old dresses and I absolutely love love the dresses from Firefly that you did. Any chance of drawing more? :)

  3. Cute! ;) Does anyone know how to put the dresses on the dolls online? I remember someone saying they found out…

  4. David Pierce kneeled at his mother’s grave. This wasn’t where he wanted to be. He had to find the truth about his mother’s death. He knew that his father, Jacob Pierce, was hiding something. David wept. I have to find the truth, he thought. He had lost hope.
    David got in his car. He picked up his cell phone. “Hello, this is David. Hi Bella, are we still on for tonight? Okay, I will see you at 8:00pm! Bye.” David knew he could confide in Bella. They had been dating for almost two years. She could be trusted.
    Bella Brown was 20 years old. She had sea-green eyes and light brown hair. She had a little sister named Sarah. Bella’s parents worked as lawyers in Leola. She had graduated from law school, and was pursuing a detective career. She was the right person David’s problem.
    At a quarter to eight, David got into his car. Earlier, he had written down a list of people who were likely suspects. Two had been with his mother during the car crash. They were at the top of his list.

    Bella greeted David at the front door. She was dressed in a blue sundress with white embroidered flowers and a white sash.
    “I have something important to discuss with you,” David said.
    “What is it? You look worried. Is it about your mom?” Bella asked.
    David nodded.
    “Well, then, let’s hurry!” Bella said.
    They drove to Dan’s Pizza House. Once they were seated and after they ordered, David brought out the list.
    “Bella, I think that my mother’s death was not just an ordinary car crash. You said that you wanted to be a detective. That’s why I am telling you,” David explained.
    “Um, okay, but why don’t you think it was just a car crash?” Bella asked.
    “I saw the news report. There were no cars even near my mom’s car! How could she have driven into the wall when it was broad day light! It doesn’t make sense!” David said.
    “Hmm, I guess this calls for a little undercover work. Don’t worry, your secret is safe with me,” Bella said.
