Need all the prayers and well wishes I can get!

Ugh. I've been checking shipping services to get my dolls to Dubai. For one, most services do not offer the door to door service that is required and the ones that do, I would have to take the dolls to Portland OR for shipping...a 5 hour drive from home. I don't have time to think right now let alone drive dolls to Portland.

And the fees are around $600 for a 50# box. 10 of the dolls weigh 42 pounds without their clothing and blankets so we know I will have to ship two boxes since I have 20 total dolls and clothing. Ikes. That is just one way. What does not sell will have to come home plus 10 of the dolls are not for sale anyway.

I think I am going to have to take then as checked luggage on my flight which is very reasonable in cost but oh scares the life out of me to think of them being inspected (they never wrap them up right once they open the luggage) and also of the risk of being lost.

So if you are a praying person, please begin covering this situation with protection from the Lord above. That will settle my unraveled nerves about getting these dolls to Dubai.

Thank you!!!!
Many hugs~


  1. Oh my goodness Debbie! I am definitely a praying person and will put you on my mental list of people to pray for. That is a very stressful proposition, taking all those babies over to Dubai. I've got concerns about my Jayden kit and having to ship it twice; once to me and then once to my reborn artist (Wanda Monroe of Bushel and a Peck nursery). Then of course, she has to ship it back to me when he's done! That's three times in the system. At least I live in Idaho and not some foreign country. Whew! Try not to stress too much over it though, it could spoil your happy trip.
    God Bless, my prayers are with you,

  2. yee gads! Is there any way you can ship the babies and check bag the clothes/blankets? Maybe that would be an easier/cheaper way? I wish I could help you out getting them to Portland....gee how I would LOVE to visit the area again...maybe one day. Prayers you way that all will be figured out! BIG HUGS too!

  3. Consider it done! Today!
