Hey everyone, how's it going?
Been a millenia since I was last here, but it seems like all the old friendly faces are still around. (Looking forward to the meeting the new faces).
I run the website http://www.dollmakersdream.com and although I do get really busy with it, I miss being part of a community. So I'm hope to be able to come through regularly if I can :)
I've been a bit ill lately, so work on my website is going to have to wait for better days anyway :P (don't panic, I'm not dying haha)

So how are you all? I'd love to hear a little about you just so I can get to know the new faces :D

Here's some little facts about me:
    I've been sculpting ever since I finished highschool
    I've sold my dolls on eBay, etsy and face to face but most of my sales were through local galleries
    I've won 2 doll competitions held at doll shows in Sydney, Australia
    I'm building my website to be full of free tutorials and articles about doll making (I have a long way to go but it's getting there)
    Some day I hope to be as talented as Lorell Lehman and Virginie Ropars
    I hate sculpting feet

Feel enlightened? :grin:
MWAH!!
Amanda

Amanda, it's a pleasure to meet you! Your website is great; I enjoyed looking at the different things you have on there. And your dolls are wonderful too! Fantastic work indeed. :-) I'm happy to have you among my many friends here in the doll making community.

Hugs,
Lori

Thanks so much everyone! (heya Gaby! *hugs*)
LOL, Divya it's so funny that something so fat has captured so many people, I guess more people a leaning towards cute dolls (cute meaning ugly but interesting) rather that good looking dolls hahaha. Is doll bigotry finally disappearing from everyone? :D hehe

Heya Amanda sweetie! hehehe. I´m a lucky girl here my friends, I proudly own one of those super cute fatty chubby elfs, they are awesome in pics and even more amazing in person, pics doesn´t make them justice, they are much much better in live.
I love my lil fatty elf and he has been captivating people here in my house. My young brother saw him and he said he is awesome, he loved him. What a lucky girl I am.
hugs hugs Amanda sweetie. Thanks for sending such a wonderful piece of art. Everytime my hubby read or remember the phrase wrotten on the tiny box "don´t you like me yet?, have another beer" he can´t stop laughing!!!! LOL.
