My husband is my "wood guy" since I just DON'T DO WOOD! It took him years to understand this, but after some disasters, he is now a believer. He is a problem solver and comes up with ingenious ideas for my projects.
One of his greatest ideas was the electricity on my large dollhouse. He used hard wire and drilled access holes through the walls up from the floor or down from the ceiling of each level. In order to reach the outlets in each room, he then drilled through the wall into the "wire run" and threaded through the wire. For more of an understanding of this project, go to Wiring on my Dollhouse page. He also designed and built the entire dollhouse for me.
My daughter is a hair color specialist who just moved back to St. Louis from South Beach, FL. I should have realized when she was a child that she would be in the "hair biz" because she cut the hair off every doll she ever had. She also did some rather ingenious things with her own hair when she was a punk rocker. She is a single mom and she had a baby boy, Shane, on October 27, 2008. To see Shane's pictures, go to Photo Album 2008. She was named top colorist of Miami in a Florida magazine, Miami Metro and has write-ups in the fashion magazine, Allure, InStyle, and Cosmopolitan. She now works at Preston's Salon in Clayton (in the St. Louis area). So, if you need your hair colored, please contact her.
My son is a graphic artist and works in website development at Unyses and does wonderful stuff. He is also a musician and plays primarily the electric bass, but can play many instruments and has been active in many bands since high school. His band is Flying House. You can go to the website, Flying House or their Facebook Page. He married a lovely young woman in July 1999 to see pictures of wedding, go to1999 Family Pictures.
