Snapshots from Convention: Hitty workshop!

I was pleased to have the privilege of taking a Hitty workshop with Gail Wilson!  I’d long been a fan……

Participants received a kit, containing everything they’d need.  The doll’s head was already done, as well as some preliminary machine-sewing on the body parts.  Then we carved the wooden arms and feet, painted arms, feet, and (turned wood) legs, and assembled the entire doll!  It was a blast!

Yay!

Snapshots from Convention–Barbie event!

Barbie superfan Bradley Justice chaired the first Barbie event at UFDC in MANY years. Here’s Bradley, with longtime Barbie designer Carol Spencer! (your intrepid reporter also got to meet Carol and was starstruck!)

I also photographed as many of the OOAK centerpieces as I could….enjoy!

Snapshots from Convention–cookies!

Post-checkin, walking between the two hotel buildings, there were doll-shaped cookies for us! Each appeared unique, with different complexions, hair colors, and dresses. They were also yummy! :)imageimage
