As promised - these are my lovely dolls. The collection is quickly growing as I started collecting sometime early last year. I have a tendency to pick up new obsessions and collect things with lots of fervor.
I love these little girls though - because its like having friends around me while I am creating. I love having company to craft with, especially my sister - but unfortunately she lives two states away - and my other crafty buddy Gosia has a Charlie Monster to take care of. Richelle and I still do craft together via webcam - its a funny site to see.
So here are the girls as promised - one of them made by Richelle!

Here is the progress I've made on my dolls thus far. I have 3 "medium" sized heads - 1 small head (in ladoll). 1 head that i like in polymer - she's going to be a creepy button eyed girl. One of the medium dolls has a funky skeletal structure on her for head wrapping around one eye - she has a torso thus far. So does the smaller doll. I'm definitely not exactly happy with these yet - but hey little steps. I'm thinking Polymer might end up being my doll medium rather than the stone clay - we'll see how it works out.
In the upcoming weeks expect to see a custom doll made for me by Patricia of Papillon Bleu UK. We've named her Bitha and she is almost finished - we both think she ended up looking a bit like me hence the Bitha *chuckles*
Abi Monroe is also making me a custom doll!
Dolls that I'm also waiting to arrive are:
Eliza made by Evelyn's Wonderland.
A rock my socks off! - Spider Lady made by CuriousBoudoirDolls
Another doll by Evangelione (i just HAD to have another - obsession yes)
A doll ornament named Emie by Karly Perez of CheekieBottoms
