Deeply Moving

Looking back & forward

I got the telephone call and they were able to transfer over all my files.  Now begins a new learning curve.  I have to say the computer is beautiful and so fast,  How did I put up with that slow old thing?

Back when I was in my early 20's I used to make soft dolls and animals.  I sold these to a gift shop in Sydney and the demand got so big I had to get my flat mates to help.  This was in addition to my day job as a Fashion Buyer for a department store.  Then I decided I thought I might like to open a coffee bar so I worked a second job to learn how to do this and couldn't make toys anymore.  Besides, when I did the math the dolls weren't making very much profit but they were rather neat dolls.

Fast forward to today and I chanced upon the site of Fig and Me and here is someone in Canada making dolls AND getting a decent price for them.  On top of that there is such a demand if you want to buy one you have to go into a random draw to be selected.

These look like Steiner inspired dolls and range in size from little babies to the size of a child.

It makes me think I might take up doll making again.  No.  Been there, done that.  I might make a couple for my grand daughters but other than that I will just look at what the younger generation can do.

If we did everything that caught our eyes, we wouldn't have time to breathe. Sometimes choices have to be made!

This was an easy one. I’ve done this before.
