A Sweet Sneak

Sooo…as many of you know Rogier of Dutch Fashion Doll WorldDutch Fashion Doll World and I are attending a special convention this week.  We are in the vibrant metropolis of New York City this week to attend the OOAK Festival. 

One of the first places we visited upon arrival in this beautiful city was Ladurée.

Rogier, Hilda of Bellissima Couture and I all love this Pâtisserie .  It can come as no surprise that this was an inspiration for us as we collaborated on an auction item for this festival.  

This festival has an amazing lineup of artists contributing auction items up for bid at the Friday night auction.

We have been given permission to share a sneak of our auction item for the blog readers!    You are getting to see this image even before the convention attendees!!

An Unexplained Absence….Explained

Hey all!  So many of you have noticed that I have been absent from the blog for a while.  The holidays were definitely one excuse but I have also been working on a big project that has taken a fair bit of my time.  The project is doll related!  Let me explain…

In a few days collectors from all over the world will be converging on the bustling metropolis of New York City for a very special doll convention.

Crown Plaza Manhatten

And…as a bonus….my fellow blogger and dear friend Rogier Corbeau of Dutch Fashion Doll World and I will be attending and reporting from the event!!!  We will be posting on both blogs during all of the festivities so we can bring the experience to all who wish to participate. 

As participants of this festival, Rogier, Hilda Westervelt of Bellissima Couture and I combined our efforts to produce a  One of a Kind item that will be up for auction at this event.  We will be excited to share the images of this project at the convention so stay tuned for that.  This project went beyond what any of us could have anticipated and we are all very excited to unveil our work.  It has taken a chunk of my time over the past 2 months though and explains my absence from blogging.  But believe me folks….it will be so worth the wait when you see the pictures of our finished project.

There will be many opportunities to obtain One of a Kind items at this festival and over 20 different artists are donating items that will be raffled off to attendees.  There will also be a live auction with some amazing entries from artists such as Magia 2000, Ninimomo, Carlyle Nuera and Mattel.  It’s sure to be an amazing event.  Please feel free to click on the festival logo above and read about all the particulars. 

Also…note to all New Yorkers and surrounding area.  There will be a sales room open at this festival and…it will be open to the public!!  Public sales day is Saturday, February 18th from 1-5PM .  There are sure to be some amazing products available so if you have the time and interest…it might be worth a look and I believe it is free entry to check out the wares.  The sales room will be at:

Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan ( Broadway Ballroom Acts 3/4)
1605 Broadway
New York, NY 10019

The festival coordinators have been generous with Rogier and I.  They have sent us a few sneak peeks to share with you all of the Golden Ticket raffle dolls that will be available for attendees to win

First up is “Perfectly Posh” by the talented Judy O’Connel of Aponi Designs
