Scribe, foodie, directress of a doll adoption service and in complete denial that I'm old enough to be Justin Beiber's grandmother. Friending, pinning and tweeting to keep from doing real work, I'd love to hear from you (especially YOUR story). If you're not a social media type, connect through my website: www.JoMaeder.com. If you're a doll lover, or know someone who is, check out MAMA JO'S HOUSE OF DOLLS on www.RubyLane.com. I'm finding forever homes for my mom's 700+ dolls. They're now spread out across the globe from Russia to New Zealand, Chile to Japan. Link: http://MamaJosHouseOfDolls.RubyLane.com It's a fraction of the collection. There's also a Facebook page for Mama Jo's House of Dolls that's highly entertaining, The New York Times ran an essay I wrote about this bittersweet adventure called "The 700-Doll Question," and YouTube has a short film on it titled "The Doll Dilemma." You decide if I'm crazy or not.
