News report: We have just received a small shipment of LD #1s in a darker flesh tone as well as the usual shipment of #1s. Some of the artists have had the dolls shipped to them already. Some came to the studio last weekend to collect their #1s. We had run out of #1s and were anxiously awaiting this shipment. Nelly Valentino flew in from Georgia to work on a project. We spent the week working on the costume design for the centerpiece doll to be presented at a MDCC meal event. Joyce Mathews was planning to come too but was unable due to a last minute attack of the flu. Lana Dobbs, Pat Green and Gwen Peard spent one full day play/working with us. We teamed up on some projects to be offered as workshops at the MDCC. We made eyeglasses, decorated head bands and tried out Nellies new hat forms. We had more fun than humans should be allowed to have. Here’s Nelly, Lana, Gwen’s back and Pat.
