The History or Story Behind
My interest in OOAK dolls began almost 5 years ago after a
Home Shopping Club Barbie Sell-A-Thon- special where they were talking
about how they design and make Barbie Dolls hosted by one of Mattel's doll
With my background in Visual Display, Fashion Design, my love for sewing,
and all my artistic talent I thought I could do it and here I am five
years later doing something that brings all of my greatest loves together.
I love every second of it.
