Terms and payment are negotiable.)

I also need any artisans with the skills mentioned near the top of the article like those who know how to cast and mold dolls, make doll eyes etc. feel free to contact me. :) At the very least I would love to pick your brain or discuss payment to learn from you.

If interested in the design phase or testing, please feel free to note or comment. I am specially looking for people who have experience with doll modding, people who have good or better cameras and photography skills, and or stringing experience. Please note that this is all in the experiment and testing stage, things may not work, and there are NO refunds. You will get something regardless. I thank you all very much in helping me to learn, create and share my work! This is my job and only job, I live with my husband at my parents home and with student loans, medical bills etc, your input and is not only helpful but vital. Thank you so so very much and a big shout out to all who have helped in past projects!

*this is the cord I use on my dolls: www.walmart.com/ip/Bead-N-Stre… found at walmart, the .7mm clear beading cord, has a nice tension without too much stretching and decent strength.

New year and a ton to do

Mon Jan 12, 2015, 10:57 PM


Hey guys!

Thanks for all of your support last year and hopefully for all the support you will give me this year too.



NEWS:star:

- I should be getting my first 3D printer soon, it was supposed to come out in November, but as all kickstarters tend to be, they fell quite a bit behind. I'm a little frustrated as their lack of communication and miscommunication has been pretty bad, but everything else seems to still be good. It's just frustrating to have to continue to work with crappy 3d Printing companies that always mess up and don't care bout getting the best print for you but of cranking out orders for the masses.  Pre-order or items made to order and my etsy shop is currently not available in anticipation of hopefully getting a printer and learning it and making new orders with my printer. I hope it will work out well, but their may be quite a struggle if my models don't work as well for the new material I will be using. if it works, it should be nicer looking prints, at worst I will have to do a lot of trial and error and remodel or tweak all of the models I have made over the past 5 years....  So wish me luck... I still have no place to actually set up my printer and work from as my computer desk I work at is big, it's a bit too cramped to add another hardware tool and set up. Will be annoying trying to figure out where to actually work as I don't have another space except the one room I live in with my husband at my parents home.

but if things go well with the printer then I will actually save some money which means I can actually make a little money and maybe I could put my husband through school so he can get out of his crappy day job. I felt pretty good about the printer and we did pray about ti and think about it a lot before I committed to getting the printer, so hopefully this will lead to an opportunity for us and great things for you guys too.

Hi i was wondering if you can help, i saw your 3D design of loki's staff from avengers assemble and I'm trying to find images based on the staff when he's in germany using it as a kind of walking stick, if you have any images I'd appreciate it because I'm trying to get someone to replicate it for myself as a walking stick to use everyday
