What happens when you love one of your creations soooo much but you know you have to sell it? Well, if you're me, you price it so high on Etsy that nobody will buy it but you don't have to feel guilty for not offering it for sale! Having said this, here is Kristine, my first African American Blythe. I recently listed her on Etsy!

Well, I am looking at the picture of faces in my last post. I was not pleased with them and sanded, re-whittled and sanded some more, re-painted and got them where I wanted them. I am knee-deep in dolls and doll parts at this point! Get a girl together, take her apart, reconfigure, and do it all again. I have by now almost a dozen girls and am about ready to list a couple for sale. The ridiculous part is that I really don't want to part with any of them. Even the ones I don't particularly like seem to have an emotional hold on me. I've sold various artistic creations before so I am not sure what the deal is. Maybe it's because as I work on them, it's like they develop their own little personalities. One of my least favorite girls emerged into a version of my mom as a child and she is now one of my very favorites. Interesting process, creating these little souls. I MUST get my act together and sell some if I want to buy more to continue customizing!I can hardly justify buying, customizing and keeping a hundred Blythes, can I? (Hah! I am actually pondering whether in fact I can!)
