To start us with what is NEW in magical faeries, I want to share with you ....Doreen Sinnett's new "Chrystal" kneeling Fairy mold!  She is incrediblel!!!    The mold set contains the beautiful Kneeling Body Mold, Chrystal 3/4 length arm mold, and the head mold, which contains 2 faces. One face with open eyes, and the other, half closed eyes.
At her site you can view a tutorial on assembling Chrystal.  Doreen
also has beautiful iron on butterfly wings for all your faeries.  The
beautiful wings can be ironed on to china silk, silk crepe, large
metallic ribbons or fabrics. Each design has a choice of gold metallic
outline or black outline. They can be colored with bright, waterproof
felt pens or fabric dyes, or just left plain.  They are truly stunning!

Doreen also has 3 other new molds available!   She also has a brand
new, all porcelain, leg mold called, "Arial bent legs".  These legs with
fit "Arial" as well as most of Doreens Lady molds. You can see more
of these new molds at www.doreensinnettdolls.com/newmolds.html


To keep us in the fantasy mood, I wanted to share a tutorial that I found.  It is a mermaid tutorial, and it can be found at http://www.thornwoodhollow.com/ ..  I found it very interesting and I love the way she posed the doll on top of the sea chest!



Our own Cheryl C. from Art of Africa  is working on getting her website up and running.  She has one tutorial available on dressing a two inch baby.  It is simple and the results are marvelous!  So go check out her tutorial and bookmark her site for future wonderful new ideas and kits. http://www.miniartofafrica.com/

I have arranged to have some

This will be a great opportunity for everyone to try these new fibers.
We will be adding these free samples with each order we ship until we run out.
I hope to get 200 or each.

I wanted to let you know that we have been able to
lower the price on our glass eyes on wires.  They were $7.50 a pair but our new price is only $6.00 per pair.
They come in 2mm, 3mm, 4mm and 5mm.
Colors are: Blue, Brown, Gray and Green.

*************************************************************************************************************
Another exciting addition will be
new wigs.

Colors will be Off-White, Salt/Pepper and Brown/Black.
I hope to be able to add this one to our website by April 16th.

In the end of May we'll have a new wig for a modern lady.
2-It is called "Shari" straight hair of medium length which flows gently around the face.
The colors will be: Golden Auburn, Chestnut Brown and Golden Strawberry.

In the end of June we'll have 2 more new wigs. Both for ladies.
3- "Laura" will have her hair swept back with a lot of loose curls at the crown and long sausage curls in the back.
The colors will be Brown/Black, Light Peach Blonde and Carrot Red.

4- The other wig will be called "Nicolette"
This is a short hairdo that will touch the top of the shoulders.
