Visit me at "Global Doll Artists" web site....

I wanted to pass along to everyone how excited I was to be selected as the "Featured Artist" for the month of February, at Global Doll Artists!
If you haven't already gone and checked out the web site, take a minute now and go see whats new with many wonderful artists. This is an awesome website, and the people there are all so very nice to chat with. I have found that it is close knit, and helpful, and everyone is very encouraging to everyone else, which is sometimes a rare thing to find.
I have settled back in after the trip, and have been staying busy getting ready for my next exciting year in the sculpting world! Last year was a whirl wind, with so much happening throughout the whole year.
I illustrated a childrens book with my sculpting, which will hopefully come out later this year, so please come back often for more news about that. I recieved my "Master Doll Makers" certificate, and traveled to the US for the first time. I created a life sized witch for Halloween, and two 18" Santa dolls and won an Honorable mention in the annual Prosculpt Santa contest with one of them. I created countless OOAK babies, packed them up and attended the IDEX show in Orlando Florida for the first time.
Phew!!! I'm getting tired just remembering all that went on! ha ha
It was a great year, so this year I am looking forward to getting back on e bay and will be offering many new little treasures through out the year.... I am also attending some local festivals, where I will be demonstrating my sculpting with polymer clay, and hope to entice some new people into this wonderful art form. I have some shows lined up to show case my work, which is very exciting, so there is much to do. Also, of course there will be the new childrens book coming out hopefully later this year. It was a lot of work, but it will be great to finally hold it in my hand.
I will also be getting a website up and going very soon, and hope that you will all come and see me there as well. I am hoping to have some of my art for sale there, as well as some new doll making items for those of you interested.
I have a line of custom miniature baby bodies coming out very soon, and will be offering them on ebay as well as my new website. I also hope to have a line of mini baby doll clothes as well very soon.
So come back often, and please drop by my ebay site to see what I'm listing every week. I will be starting the auctions every Tuesday evening, and they will end Sunday evening.
Here is what I have had this week....
Thanks so much for stopping my again,
if you have any questions please feel free to e mail me.
