    I wanted to include something like that. At least a blurb about the doll's story. Maybe a booklet for others to add to if they want. I'd love picture of the stages.

    I liked the idea of a journal or paper or atc to follow the dolls, but made it optional for the participants.

    If a doll comes with such an item I'll add to it, but my doll is traveling with only a name (Keeper of the Garden Gate) and a note about construction.

    As to a trap door on Miss Fish Sticks, HA I GET IT FIRST!

    Just read the newest comments and I can't add anything to my box...it's all sealed up.
    All I put in there is bubble wrap and a little note about what Eclectica is made of and what she likes (with a "NO clown" stipulation! ha ha)....but if anybody is so inclined to leave a little note of their own...feel free to do so and I will put them together at the end.
    LOVE the cat doll....hummmmm...that is pretty daring of you to send Miss Kitty Fish Sticks my way....Just saying!
    Ruth, make sure you leave some room in that trap door for the rest of us...! it will be like one of those cache boxes at the top of mountains!

    How sweet is that! That is a mom's love! Very cool...

    My sister in law who is an art teacher, visits every year with us and we try to do some kind of art project every time. Last year she gave me a book: "Crafting with cat hair - Cute Handicrafts to make with your cat"...
    Yes... it does say WITH your cat! like they are going to sit there, felting their own hair into a coin purse or a pin cushion!

    BUT I must admit I have started collecting the wads from their hair brush so I can make ATCs with it!!
    Any takers?

    Ok....I will make a page for each doll I receive and I will include a page for each person to make notes on about their construction on my doll...it doesn't have to be real elaborate 'cause I know everyone is super busy. It will be kind of cool to have the 5 pages together at the end though!

    I agree...love the tin can box for goodies idea. Can't wait to see what devilish things I see inside there.

    Here are the beginnings of my guy. A new take on a classic: Pinocchio Revisited. He's cut loose of his puppet strings and is off to raise some heck.

    Thanks, Bonnie. You rock! Pinocchio has a small travel journal accompanying him. Our lovely arteests can read more about his story in the journal, write more adventures into it (if they choose), but at least sign the back page. Thanks!

    Those little journals are hard to resist, aren't they? I think I will make an ATC about what corruption I hath wrought on the dolls as they pass through.

    Come on down, Miss Kitty Fish Sticks!
