I’ve been trying to get organized for the re opening of custom dolls. I’ve got the fabric on order..
I’ll probably change the fabric choices pretty often. I tend to get tired of prints fairly quickly, except the Folklore (the one with the squirrels) I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of that. In case you are wondering what I’m going on about – when you order a custom doll you can choose the fabric that you’d like the doll to be dressed in ,or, you can leave it up to me. I tried to find fabrics that I think I’d like as a child, but are still modern looking. The strawberry one at the top isn’t something I’d normally choose but I know I would have been my fav when I was a kid. I had to get something in the ‘mix’ that was pink and flower-y.. I tend to stay away from those kinds of looks because it’s just not my aesthetic, but I have to remember it’s not just about what I like. Ha – that’s when my inner 6 year old comes in handy.
I’m going to open the customs in 2 ‘sets’. The reason I’m doing this is so that my international ladies can order a doll at a decent hour. So, the first ‘set’ will be available at 6pm PST December 15th and then the other one will be at 8am on December 16th. I don’t know if this is necessary – there are quite a few spots opening up, but John and the rest of the mamas on Facebook seem to think they are going to go in a flash. I’m also going to increase my bandwidth to handle the increase in traffic- just trying to get prepared!
I’ll be sending out a newsletter soon about all of this, the dates will be posted on my homepage as well.
Okay – I have to go get sewing.. I’m trying to get a dozen or so dolls up for Friday!
