the jolly fat man liked me afterall!

Hi! The Doll Affair 2009 concluded yesterday, and here's a brief update because I don't have the photos yet!

A special hello to everyone who's here through the namecards at TDA. Do comment to say hi! :) And if you are one of them who took photos of my booth, pretty please I wanna see them! :) 

Honestly, I did not fare well sales-wise at all at TDA, but somehow my spirits were still high through out. Mostly because I had already expected low/no sales, as I knew the main reason why my sculpts weren't selling, was because of the small scale (12th scale) they were in. Oh, the many times people would go "Ohhh, these are wonderful, but too small for my doll!".

And yet, I still went ahead with sculpting only 1/12th scale, maybe I was deterred by the obstacles Cindy was reporting (but it was all worth it, cause her sculpts are FAB!), but more so because I decided to concentrate on finishing my long list of Christmas orders instead, as I had to travel right after the event.

But lows aside, I MUST mention my bestie, LEE YIQIAO ARE YOU READING THIS, who was so generous and so helpful throughout the entire TDA preparation and at the actual fair itself. She was the one who got her fingers all white while painted the miniature displays, and made the extremely pretty ice cream stands. She lugged her extremely heavy laptop and extension cords to the fair, and helped think of the layout of the booth. I shall not bore all of you with all of the details, but just extremely thankful of this bestie of mine. LOVE YOUU!! :)

And there are more good news to report which would also explain the title of this entry), but that shall be in another entry. For now, I have to get sculpting again and packing for my trip! :)

I will be out of the country from 21st December to 25th December. All orders would be sent out before I leave the country, but do note that the earliest time I can sculpt for new orders would be from 26th December.

I would still be contactable via email, and should be checking my inbox everyday. So keep your custom orders and enquiries coming! :)

    Sounds like you just need to make some bigger scale for the next time. :)
