Why aren't my plates perfect?

It has been a busy couple of weeks.  I've spent time getting my Etsy store, Van's Doll Treasures, set up for international shipping. I've also diligently tried to make new sofas and chairs to add to the store.  My mind has been working overtime as I research new products to add.  I thought that nice table place settings would be a nice addition.  So I set out to make these perfectly round and smooth plates.  It was definitely not as easy as I thought it would be.  So I ended up with some wobbly plates, with edges that desperately needed smoothing.  However, as with everything you do, it usually takes a lot of practice to get it right.  So it is back to the drawing board to make the perfect plates and bowls.  Wish me luck.  Hopefully, with a little persisitence, there will be a nice 4 pc and 6 pc Barbie place setting available soon at a store near you (or at least at Van's Doll Treasures!)
I actually like this plate and plate stand. Still needs work, though.

Decided to try a few candles.


  1. I like them personally. They look like those unique high end pieces you get a specialty stores made by artisans in exotic locales! Keep up the great work!
