About Me

My photo
Upland, Ca, United States
Sissy Dre was inspired by my father, Robert Felix Rosales, particularly his stylish clothes and big-hearted ways of being. My father was always open to any new hobbies or opportunities and especially enjoyed meeting new people. I take on this creative venture to honor him in my own way. I have been making cloth dolls since January 2009 when I left the corporate world behind and moved to Upland, CA. with my family. Our lively household includes two teenage children, four dogs, six cats, and a wonderful husband who always supports us with love and grace. I had never worked a sewing machine before but I truly love making dolls and enjoy every aspect of creative life. Making dolls form scratch has opened artistic doors within me that I never knew existed and I hope this blog helps to inspire some crafty part of you too. 000000

What can I say "Yard Sales"

Yard Sales, yes it's about finding the hidden treasures. 

A friend of mind reminds me often, whatever your looking
for you will find it at a yard sale. Yes, of course, you need
to be patient. Yes, of course you won't find it right away, well
unless you do. And yes, when you do, be ready because
another chance might not come around again for a long time.
But, you will find it!

And you know what, she is Right!
For the last several monthsI've been going to yard sales every
Saturday morning starting the adventure at 6:30am.
And you know what, I'm loving it. It's still
quiet outside, the house is still.
Well, except for the puppies, who 
wake up when they hear the stairs creek, then I have
to make a fast get-a-way before all the animals wake up.
That's another subject to get back to later. 





You get to find all sort of great stuff.
However, one really doesn't think to find a
Chihuahua puppy? Well, I did. And I brought her home, 
from a Norco, CA yard sale last weekend. 

Yup, it's true. She was in a kennel with one of her
brothers, two had already been sold earlier that day, healthy
only one left and If I didn't already have two 
other puppies at home, I would have taken her
brother too. But then I would be really nuts! RIGHT!
Well, were going on 7 dogs now, 3 puppies, and 
4 seniors. All are happy, healthy, and
enjoying the much needed daily walks.

There she is on the far left looking at you!


My awesome, wonderful Labrador Isabelle and the new puppy.


The pack, getting some sun time in.



Oh, Happy Day to me!

Haven't named her yet, in between "Bernie" for Bernadette or "Olivia".
Let me know what name you like best.

Happy Easter & Blessings to you daily ~

Last entry for this blog ~ Moving to SissyDre 2

Hi Peeps ~

Well, after two whole days of trying to figure out,
why I couldn't post to my blog, and no picture uploads
were being processed. I now, know why, Gurr ~

My 15 year old son, Gabriel, solved my dilemma in a snap.
We share the love and hate relationship with our
 technology tools. Anyhow, I was telling him my frustration,
on the car ride home tonight, from his basketball practice.
And, after dinner, he walked me thru the process and
poof ~
All is going to be okay.

Blogger is letting me know that I have no more memory
out of Picasa Web Album. So, I could either purchase
more memory from blogger for a monthly fee,
no don't want to do that. Or create an additional email address
and create "SissyDre 2" to continue my blog posting with
Blogspot.com as well as 100% free memory.
Hurray, that sounds good to me & that's
what I'm doing.

Here's my next steps. As of tonight, this will be my last
entry to this site. Over the next couple of days, I will create my
new blog and post to Facebook, NetworkedBlogs, and
Google Friend Connect to share with you, and I hope
you comeback and share with me.

Off to bed for an early morning walk then "blog" land
here I come.


I'll will see you in a couple of days.
Much Love to you always ~
