|This photo is from the Integrity Doll Website, Isn't She Beautiful !|
I thought I had hit a brick wall with doll collecting and had not purchased a doll in months. I just didn't seem to see anything, anywhere that excited me .. until I discovered this site www.dollobservers.com. This was much bigger than Barbie.. names like Poppy Parker, Jason Wu. www.integritytoys.com . I Immediately felt at home for the first time in a long time. Here I could gather with other adults who had the same desire as myself.. to own these very pretty dolls however, these hardcore collectors took things a little further....they played with their dolls and... they even redressed them!!!
Here I found a place of luxury and was able to reconnect with some of my desires and dreams as a young person. I soon found myself cutting, gluing,taping and painting objects around the house... needless to say my family thought I had lost it.. They had never seen me like this before.. I was focused and determined to turn cardboard boxes into furniture pieces and scrap fabric into designer clothing, but really there was something else going on... I was reconnecting with myself and visualizing myself doing what I really wanted to do.
This is how Doll Therapy was born. A very trying time for myself professionally and personally ,as I began to transition in my career and personally. I plan to share some pictures of projects I completed earlier this year, and of course some current projects. For the month of December, I plan to launch my first contest! So stop by again, and make sure you share our blog!
