This blog is a sociology project that will do several things:

1. Research the craft movement – and try to determine WHY it became so popular.

2. Research the craft movement – and try to determine why it became so popular with WOMEN.

3. I will make a toy for The Toy Society and document my feelings and frustrations (and how that ties in with the above questions) as I prepare it for deployment to a new home.  Here is where I am the sociological guinea pig.

This blog will probably become a cobweb after this class is over.  Or maybe I will decide I like blogging.

Update:  I think I know where this blog is headed after class is over.  I am, sort of, fascinated with Wal-Mart.  The corporate giant appears in my stories (I am a creative writing major).  I shop there every week and yet I am repulsed by it, to the point where I will sometimes have to exit without my groceries.  I am sure that one of the levels of hell in Dante’s Inferno is Wal-Mart.  So, from now on, I will do my best to make Wal-Mart a better place.  I will do all my random acts of kindness there – in the place where people are most likely to be angry or irritated.  I have dropped a Toy Society toy off there, and will continue these drops  until I am found out.  I have passed out gift cards to random strangers.

I encourage you to do the same.  Alleviate the pains of hell.  Do a random act of kindness in Wal-Mart.

  1. Hello, just enquiring how I receive the cupcake doll pattern I have tried through all the sites and I can’t seem to find how to download it. Thank you in advance 🙂

  2. I have a request for you. Can you make a pattern for the boy doll pattern and a short overalls pattern for the girl doll pattern?

  3. Just printed your pattern for Lil’Cupcake – can’t wait to make her. Also really love the way you leave Poppets at the store for people (preferably children) to take home – its such a lovely and kind thing to do.
