Other artists: please send me a message if you want me to post an update for you, too.

Everyone, please remember our artists are working as fast as they can on dolls and please be patient!  Each one is a true work of art and art takes time.

A note on behalf of Dianna pertaining to her orders

Dianna sent out an "invitation to order" to 50 folks who have been on the waiting list for 2 year.  The orders came in like landslide so a lot of orders were taken over June-August.   She has had to stop collecting names for the waiting list because there were just too many names already.   Here is a note from her:
Dear Collector,
I regret to tell you that I am no longer taking names for a waiting list.  There are too many names on the list now.  I will post a notice on thedollstudio.com when I am ready to take orders again.  I would like to make everyone happy with a hand painted doll but it is not possible.  Please forgive me.  Thank you for your patience.  I hope all your fondest wishes and dreams come true.  
Kind regards,
Dianna Effner
