Mary: Hello Cindy, I was just browsing through some picturetrail albums and came across yours. I'm not a doll person, but I just love your music and your garden. Gorgeous! It is so inspirational to see what can be done. I have a small lot here in FL, and your garden pics have been truly inspiring. Thanks for sharing them. And your music brought me back about 10 years ago when my dad, brother, and I went to a concert in RI one summer...the music was Irish/Scottish, and your music reminded me of that day. Again, my thanks.

Carolyn Fulton: Your dolls are amazing, very possibly (probably!) the best I've ever seen. I can't believe I've overlooked them before now. Cindy, you need more than an online photo album, you need a full-fledged website! Please, please e-mail me if you think you might be interested -- I would LOVE to do a website for you to display and sell your beautiful dolls -- and I work for minis! I admit it -- I'm a minidoll nut!

Geri Rushton: Cindy: You posted 3 medieval ladies a short time back. They are absolutely beautiful. Could you tell me the fabric on the burgandy one with the long dark hair. Also, do you ever sell patterns. Also, was the blond in the light gown done in a jacquard fabric. I saved them on my download, but I didn't know they didn't stay on there very long. You really do beautiful work. Geri Rushton

sfaddis: Hi Cindy! This is your cousin Suzanne. I can't believe how beautiful and detail all your dolls are. They are so beautiful! What a talent you have. I loved seeing pictures of your family. What a gorgeous family! I feel bad we haven't stayed closer. It's really hard with a family and living so far apart. I'd love to keep in contact with you. Tell me more about your family. I love to also hear how your brother and sister are doing. I talked to your Dad a few days ago. He is such a kind and loving man. You are so lucky to have such wonderful parents! :) I am new at this PictureTrail, I put some pictures of my family on here for you to see. Hope to hear from you soon. Suzanne Call Faddis

I will be traveling to Ireland this fall and found your music set the right atmosphere for my much anticipated journey to the Emerald Isle. Thank you for sharing your web page. I think you have one of the nicest presentations I have ever seen. Thank Jan for giving you my email address. I will indeed be interested in a mold of Yvette.

Barbara: Your doll Sarah is absolutely beautiful. You should make a man to go with her so she is not lonely. I have a beautiful doll named Hazel and as of yet I have not found her husband, James. She has a sweet daughter and baby. This is difficult to explain, so we say that he is in India. Your work is exquisite, so you should make companion pieces for your ladies to do them justice.
