I just came across the musician, Laura Gibson. I love her. She’s just my type of music…a little sad, but pretty. Have a listen, I’d love to hear what you think!
I desperately wanted one of these cake toppers for our wedding cake but could not afford them. They are super adorable though, don’t you think? I also waited until about a month before the wedding to even think about cake toppers. Well that’s not entirely true… I thought about it all the time… it just wasn’t until a month before that I actually decided to do something about it. Patrick came up with the great idea for me to make our own toppers—something similar to my block dolls. I wasn’t sure how or if I was going to be able to do it. But I did! And they came out pretty adorable. I searched and searched for a little dollhouse dog figurine that looks like Charlie to sit with us…but could not find one… sigh.
Don’t those cupcakes and cake look amazing? They were! My amazing dad made them for me… along with many many other things that made our day special.

I just came across a series of photos taken by Andrew Bush. They totally remind me of this time when I was with my mom. We were driving down to Little Rock and we drove by this man who had a mustache. He looked completely normal besides the giant white, round earrings, navy blue pattered dress, and full blown makeup. When you’re an 8 year old girl… Nothing could be funnier. My mom and I laughed and laughed. It’s one of my favorite memories with her.
I wonder where he was going? It wasn’t even Halloween. Was it a joke? Did he loose a bet? So many questions for a little lady to have.
What’s your favorite memory with your mom? or someone just as close to you?
(Seriously, imagine this guy wearing a dress)
*Side note. This was also the time whenever my mom would get mad as someone one the road she would call them DildoLips. hahahaha. Oh mom. I love you.
I downloaded the Instagram App a few months ago… and thought…”This is lame, just use hipstamtic and post on facebook, what’s the diff?” It wasn’t until recently that I found out I was terribly wrong. This app is amazing, and I’m starting to get addicted. I love how you can take existing photos and turn them into an old looking photo… and there so so many filters to choose from! AND you can post to flickr, twitter, facebook, email… or nothing at all. You can just post in the instagram world. I really love it. I also love taking photos of my dog. There are only 2 things that I wish were different. 1) I wish I could take higher res photos. 2) I wish it had a regular website that we could all log into to see everybody’s lovely photos all at once & BIG and not just on the tiny iPhone. Download it. And Follow me (emilymolloy). What’s your instagram screen name? I will follow you.
Last week two of my very favorite friends 3 year old, french bull dog, Oslo, had emergency spinal surgery. You can read more about it here: http://ouroslo.wordpress.com/
To help with the expenses of this surgery, I’ve donated two my dolls for a raffle where all the benefits will go to this family. It’s only $5 for a raffle ticket, and $20 for 5! It’s a great deal, there are a lot of great prizes in this deal. Now GO! GO BUY A TICKET!! Raffle ends this Saturday, July 16th!
Anyway, now that we’re married and I have my life back and can start drawing…and blogging again. And once we find a new (larger) apartment…which I hope will be soon… I can start making dolls again! Oh, I can’t wait. Anyway, here is my first drawing in a long long time… besides our wedding invites and any other related wedding things. I should really post our cake toppers that I made. I will do that next. It’s nice to be back, blog. I hope to see you more often.
