Giveaway to Celebrate my Furniture Appearance in the Latest FDQ magazine!

Hello friends!  Today I am finally blogging about a small dream of mine being realized.  One of my accent chair and ottoman sets was used by the amazing Diva Details in the latest issue of Fashion Doll Quarterly (FDQ)!  It appears on page 106 at the top.  Ever since I started making porcelain dolls, I have wanted to be in a doll magazine.  The closest I got was paying to have my business card listed in the back.  LOL!  Well now, I can cross one more thing off my "Ultimate To Do List". 

How did it come about, you ask?  Well, Audrey of Diva Details saw my Daddy/Daughter dance video and she spotted those nice urns that I used in the diorama.  She contacted me to ask if I would consider getting her a couple urns to purchase because they don't have those where she lives.  Well I happened to have two additional ones that I ended up selling to her.  Further conversations led to her saying how much she loved the new accent chairs that I had started selling.  She bought a pair and loved them so much she decided to use them in her next FDQ article.  And as they say, the rest is history.

Well as part of my celebration, I have decided to giveaway one of my accent chair and ottoman sets to one of you.  It will be just like one of the ones pictured below, except that it will come with an ottoman as well.  I have selected this one because it is already done (except I have to add the legs).  It was originally sleighted to go in the Etsy shop.  With my schedule, it is best to giveaway something that is ready to go.


The drawing will be announced on Monday December 5th.  All you have to do to be considered is write in the comment section that you are interested in participating.  I love all of my readers, including the international ones.  International people are welcome to participate, however, they will have to assume responsibility for shipping. 

Would you believe I was contacted last week by Doll Reader, who wanted to use some of my furniture in an upcoming photoshoot?  Turns out the photoshoot was for a 16" doll.  We decided that wasn't a good idea.

  2. I forgot to mention, this past Friday, I ordered the 2011 Winter issue of FDQ just because your pieces are in it. In case anyone else is interested, I ordered my copy from Stella's Treasures.

  27. Hello from Spain: sewing books about Barbie and Ken clothes are painted to bring very good pictures. Congratulations for your creations have left in the magazine. Bravo do a great job. I confirm that I do want to participate in the drawing of the set and I hope the shipping costs, if they touch me, not very high but the yield to another participant in your area. The entrance to the cookies is the best. I was perfect, until you have the molds in miniature. It lacks detail, to stain his face with flour. I laughed and enjoyed your creation. We remain in contact blog blog
