*Art Dolls for Sale*

My friend Jill, is having to part with her collection of Art Dolls to raise funds towards her husbands upcoming Kidney Transplant.  She doesn't have access to a camera, and doesn't have any online social networks, so I am helping her to show what she has to offer.
Since this is time sensitive, it seemed most appropriate to highlight each doll she has available, and the link to the sold doll for image reference. 
She has a minimum asking price for each art doll.  If you have an interest in any, please email Jill  ~ mckeon208@juno.com

*note added*  the links are to the  dolls Jill purchased, so the doll will be noted as 'sold', but Jill is now selling them.  The link is just for image reference.

Any help to promote this post would be absolutely precious to her.

*****NB ~ Jill stays awake at night to care for her husband, so please note she may take a while to email you back******

Thanks so much.  Abi

~ Helloooooo ~

So, I seem to have gotten into a 2 month posting habit.  That's not cool.  I must say, Blogger drives me bonkers, with all it's reoccurring faults, and errors, so I have finally made the leap to Wordpress.  This will be my last post here.

I have also been spending most of my waking hours working on doll clothes, and furniture.  For the time being, I won't be working on any new art dolls.  It's also a fairwell to the Art Dolls Only Team, where the decision was made to close it's doors yesterday.  I was becoming increasingly frustrated with the lack of participation, as were some other active members, amongst other things, so although I will miss ADO, I think it was time to say goodbye. (edit ~ I stand corrected. The ADO as it was has closed it's doors, but a new one is being set up - so if you are interested in re-joining, visit Patricia of Papilion Bleu)

Here is an image of my last custom doll...
Her new owner named her Abbey, which is sweet, since she is my last!

My obsession continues to grow over ball jointed dolls, and Blythe.  I am learning more about face-ups, and clothing patterns and hair re-rooting and carving.  It's fun.
I am in the midst of customising dolls.  Peri here, was my first...
Ok, I can't get blogger to accept any more images, so will have to try again, another day.

In the meantime, I am offering a chance to win a $100 gift voucher over on my new blog for those of you who have a Blythe, or Pullip!

I'd love you to pop by and say hi!
