Beyern

996There are new milestones and  new rewards in my collection! This sommer I was 3 days long at the exhibition, near Koburg, in Beyern. It was wonderful and relaxed, but In the big hall of Sonnenstadt I presented only my teddybears, because the doll-competition proceeded right in our hotel. At this photo you can see those awards, won by my little princess.

Spring in Moscow

997From 6 to 9 March 2014 in Moscow was the «Spring Ball of the dolls at Wetoschnyi» and I was one of the members. The exhibition proceeded in a very friendly atmosphere. There were many members, known doll- and teddybearmakers. The main event of the exhibition was the doll competition. Among the most important selection Criteria were: originality, shape, color, anatomical proportions, charisma and unity of composition. There were still around 30 authors at the start. There was only one «first place», except the 4 additional nominations. The jury consisted, as usual, of several famous doll makers. After 4 days, there was a prize-giving ceremony, where I was also able to learn from my victory. The jury was unanimous for my doll in the selection and it gave me hope,
that I’m doing all this not in vain! I want to thank everyone who has supported me. I appreciate it! As for me — I’m going on to create my dolls in order to impress you with my work.
