    Hi, I'm Connie of Sweet Creations. I am mother of two darling girls, grandmother to 4 wonderful children and spouse to the love of my life for the past 38 years. I love you

    I only have two BJD's, looking into a third, but I do have dolls ranging in size from 7 1/2" to 23" that model for me. I am a dolly seamstress.

    I am excited to be part of this new forum, and hope I am posting this correctly! Laughing

    Say hello to Secret!

    THANK YOU for this forum!

    Post  CharlieRiley on Thu May 14, 2009 1:37 pm

    I'm just thrilled to be here--I've been on DofA for lack of alternatives, but the hostility there to American bjds is really galling.

    Anyway! Hi, I'm Charlie--I was stone.rosetta79 on the Yahoo group. I live in Pittsburgh, have a job as an academic advisor, and have gone completely doll crazy.

    My little BJD family includes Creedy Melodi and Shani (renamed Mindi), a Goodreau "Flip" elf (renamed Missi, although I call her Bug most of the time), and a RoxyDoll Lucy (renamed Marni, and who is, in our little family, Melodi's doll). I sew for all of them, and am having so much fun with them that I feel like a carefree kid again.

    Well. At least until the REAL kids need something and the bills come due. Wink

    Glad to be here!!

    I love that this new forum has been started up!! :0) I think we'll all have fun here!

    I'm Leah and was bitten by the bjd-bug a few years ago. I stay at home with my two kids, 3 and 7. My dolls started as just a fun hobby, but it seems as though I needed to be more involved with my hobby and I now crochet clothes for dolls, make miniature books for them, and do face ups.

    I think I'm getting this place figured out already - which is a good sign for me - and am looking forward to interacting here.

    Hello Everyone!

    Post  Lori in OR on Thu May 14, 2009 2:34 pm

    Hi! I'm Lori, I live near Portland, OR with my husband and 3 children ranging in age from 2 to 7, 2 girls and a boy in the middle, and our yellow lab. I'm currently taking classes and hope to apply to nursing school later this year.

    I've been collecting and sewing for dolls for quite a while, started out with American Girl, then I acquired many Tonner dolls, and now I'm working on my BJD collection. My first was a vinyl Goodreau Secret I've named Ruby, then I got Aidyn (Mei), SoulKid Yewon (Amy), and an Ai BJD. I sew for all but the little ones. Hopefully I'll have some stuff to show off this summer!

    I'm looking forward to using this forum, but may mostly lurk until my current class is over.

    Hi! Thanks, Kim, for setting this up!

    I have only been describing myself as a doll collector for about the last 2 weeks. Before that I had a few doll to use as models to make clothes. But apparently I "crossed a line" and can no longer use that as an excuse. It was an accident really. And I blame my sister, Vicki, most of all for getting me started. Leah and all the rest of you and my flickr friends have been a terrible influence and major enablers as well. So to all of you I must say, "THANK YOU!!! I love my dolls!

    But, couldn't I then use it as my excuse to my husband, that at least I don't have as many as Paulette (yet)? Laughing

    Did I read that you won the drawing at the Kish convention? Do you have a photo of that piece? I--for one-would love to see it!

    He he he...

    Poor Mai Anya is still headless... I was going to post a picture of her anyway, but I think she'd be embarrassed. Her body and clothes sure are cute, though! I'm trying very hard to be patient and not to pester Leah. I called her earlier about something else and didn't even mention Mai Anya. I was very impressed with my restraint. *Sigh* I know it won't be long...

    I have to tell you, Kim, that pic of Ainsley in your avatar is driving me mad! She may need to be part of my little family in the future. Gorgeous doll.

    Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I think I know just about everyone here too. Thanks Kim for starting this forum.

    I'm Michele and I live in CO with my family -(kids are ages 13, 16) and we are ski addicts.
    I'm a fiber artist on a long break from that work and loving playing with BJDs. All brands, primarily girls, lots of elves too. I prefer SD and slim-mini size, but I also have several MSD and 10-13" kids. I do customizing (faceups, etc), costuming, and wigs so mostly my dolls are working models rather than display pieces.

    Here's my latest creation (Creedy Melodi in Cherry Yellow):
