Three Days Later …

I’m in tears right now reading your sweet, amazing and supportive comments on my last post. Even though Brandi said that all the comments were good – I still felt a tad chicken to go on and read them. The decision to raise my prices was so incredibly hard for me to do and I had this sort of ‘inner chatter’ of how people would react. As you may be able to tell .. I am my own worst critic.

I dislike money. I really do. I wish so much that I could just give the dolls away and somehow everything be taken care of. I already feel so blessed that I am doing this for a living .. I mean, come on, it doesn’t get any better. But then things like wool and rent and wages need to be paid for , those tedious and annoying expenses, but they do have to get paid for.

Thank you so much. It means so much to know that you guys really get what I’m doing here and what we are trying to create. I think with the way the economy and business and .. well everything, really,  is going things have to change.  I’m just trying to do what I can with my 30 ladies (and John) over here in Cobble Hill.

I feel so humbled and honoured and thankful and happy. You gals rock.

    Please be confident in your decisions. The gift you provide to everyone blessed enough to have a doll is worth the cost. I think our first Bamboletta was the last custom upload offered, I have one from the odd upload comment system (not a serendipity) and finally a boy from seredipity. Three precious additions to my daughters childhood. And when or if she outgrows them I will place them with all her other childhood items like the outfit she came home from the hospital in. I will cherish these things and they will help me remember how much I love her and how sweet she can be when she is sixteen and I am at my wits end. Then when she is older I will pass these back to her so she can tell her babies all about the tea parties and adventures this trio of friends joined her on. They are and will be cherished cherished by many generations. So bottom line I considered every penny well spent.

    Anyone who has ever tried to make a Waldorf doll knows that yours are worth every penny, and more! Yours are beautiful, artistic, quality dolls. In all honesty, when I first found your store, I was surprised that you weren’t charging more. I am happy for you to charge as much as it takes to buy quality materials and to pay the sewing mammas well. They do great work!

    Christina, although I am relatively new to your beautiful magical dolls. My first look and I was in love! Not just with the dolls but with you! And your story! You have a gift and you share that gift! And your love for these dolls shows through! And you are so generous with giving golden tickets out 3 times a month! I love your dolls and get so excited every week to see the amazing dolls you have each week. It has given me something to look forward to every Thursday!

    Our beautiful Bamboletta dolls are so cherished in our family. I feel so proud to know you and am so happy that your business is doing so well. So much love and positive energy goes into creating each one- you just have to hold one to feel it.. I feel so much joy and comfort when I look at each sweet little face. The memories I am creating with Lauren are priceless. : )
