Big and Little PEACE

Hi Friends!

A couple of weeks ago during the big snow, I was telling my daughter I spent the entire day on minis. She said, "that must have been very relaxing." I said, "actually, it was more like peaceful." So, I ask you to notice the new "Peace" gadget I added to my blog.
I hope my blog always serves to help keep you in perfect peace. After all, this is all about friendships, fun times and positive play right? NEGATIVITY or DRAMA!
Sorry, I was missing in action the past few days. My blog was sick. It seemed a lot of people around the world were having the same  problem. There are still a few problems.
Please let me know if you have trouble with it.

I have some new projects I will show you very soon!

Would you believe it was the PEACE widget that was causing the problem so I had to take it off! I will find something else nice to replace it. But at least...we are back in business again!(I hope lol)

For My Barbie-Lover Friends (sorry about three blank posts!)

I happen to run across an article about Barbie recently. She is one controversial gal who has gone through many changes over the years.

For some reason Barbie sales are down 13%! The adult market is unaccounted for. The article refers to parent consumers. Perhaps sales would increase if they made some of the changes adult collectors suggest! 

After listening to the song in the first commercial, I can understand why some shoppers would be concerned about the image that is portrayed for little girls... "really me? Petite?" Maybe, just maybe they should market to big girls and big boys a little harder! :-)

  Read further about Barbie's future with Sports Illustrated and a lot about her past and let me know what you think? Just what is your opinion on these Barbie topics?

 Let's start with her first commercial shown during the Mickey Mouse Club in 1959.

The words in the commercial which talk
about her purpose was really thought provoking!

Barbie and Ken

 This is a depiction of how she and Ken might look today if she aged like the rest of us.

Is the one on the right the way Barbie should really look? Would you buy her?

 Through all of her controversy she remains "unapologetic"
