A BIG THANK YOU!!!!!!

WE'RE ALL DANCIN' HERE AT THE "HOUSE OF SOFT"

I can't believe what a night I just had! I owe it all to the wonderful customers I have! I keep meeting some incredible people doing this job! People who have the heart and soul of true lovers of this art medium. I want to send out a huge hug and THANK YOU to each one of you for making "Soft in the Head" such a success! I sold everything before the clock even hit 12:15am. My mailbox was tapping out messages like it was dancin' to an old "Country Bluegrass Number....right ALBA?" Aunt Fibian is all yours! I wish I could have filled all the requests I recieved and I'm truly sorry to those that had to leave empty handed.

This group of Halloween/Fall creations was a blast to make! I get inspired from the strangest places, but mostly the doll just seems to take shape as I build it. The idea for Mrs. Black came from listening to my brother talk about his new chickens and how strange some of them look. Like I said, from the strangest places!
I have noticed that my wire hands and trademark curly-ques have become very popular with customers and other artists alike.
I love doing the wire touches to my creations, especially the Halloween line. They just give the doll a spooky essence. They also work great on the frogs for that "froggy feel" of webbed feet. Using wire comes from all the years I worked as a floral designer. I would use different colors of wire curly-ques in bouquets and corsages just to add a different dimension/texture to the look. Besides wire is such a "prim" thing to do and all of you like it! Thanks again to my FAN-TAB-U-LOUS customers for making HARTS and TDIPT so successful for me!
