Do you know about the Virtual Doll Conventions that Rachel Hoffman has created on facebook? If not you have been missing something wonderful. Some of you may remember that I have participated in previous VDCs. What you may not have heard about is that Rachel has put together a wonderful free convention that begins next week, as her way of giving something to everyone in the doll world, at a time when we all need to have a break from worry, stress and bad news. ❤
So all of the little cloth girls and I would like to invite you to join the convention, it’s FREE all you have to do is register. Then come for a virtual visit to my front parlor, where we will sit together and I will tell you a tale about Izannah Walker and her dolls. We’ll also talk a bit about mid-19th century clothing and undoubtedly a few other things as well, just as we would if you came to call in person. ❤
Recently my friend, Edyth, suggested that I create a comprehensive list of online sites where people can see my dolls and other handmade works. I do have a lot of different blogs, websites,etc. so a handy reference list is a great idea. Thank you Edyth!!!
Some of you have also sent me personal friend requests on facebook, which is great. I do have a personal facebook account too, which is not what you want if you just want to read about my dolls 🙂 My personal facebook page is full of family, friends, and cats. So if you DON’T want to see hundreds of baby photos my personal page is not the one for you. 🙂
Eliza Jane finally has a name and a dress. 🙂 She is the latest addition to my family of antique Izannah Walker dolls and is named after my great-grandmother, Eliza Jane Tarvin Stogner. Her dress and petticoat are antique that I purchased last summer and fit as if they were made for her. Once I find time to make a mold, Eliza Jane will bring the number of Izannah walker that I can reproduce for you up to twelve!
