Oh, I am so in love with this lambie I made for a dear friend. The design and pattern is from Lali Doll Nursery. Very well written, highly recommended!

Follow up on the FB story....

I understand FB has to make profit to live up to the overrated expectations on the stock market but I wish they would at least keep the notifications to the fans free and prioritized like the other social media. I detest the idea to raise my prices to cover the FB costs! Normally when you choose to advertise you want to expand your business but as a doll maker I cannot even keep up with the demand as it is so I am not really looking for expansion.  I do hope Fb will change this policy. Btw....on Instagram I saw a picture of Sami dolls where she showed how to increase the chance of getting an update. In case someone doesn't know it, here's a picture.....

It is in Dutch but I think you get the idea...

I also activated my twitter account :

Other social media

Pfew, time really flies by. It has been so long since I wrote on my blog, I am feeling a bit ashamed.
I want to let you know I am exploring other types of social media but Facebook since they are forcing business owners to pay for showing updates to their own fans. Last couple of times I paid more and more and even then not all fans got the notification. Instead of giving privilige to my followers, Fb decided to focus mainly on getting more likes. That makes sense from the Fb perspective since more fans means more advertisement money next time.

So, I created accounts on Instagram and Pinterest and I will be more active on my blog and my Flickr account. I hope I can keep serving my dear followers this way because without your support and kindness, doll making will be far less fun. I love y'all!  (don't ask me why this is such a difficult number)
