Things in the making...

I know, I know..... I haven't been posting anything for a while, but I've just been too busy.

I listed for a few weeks on E-bay, but besides extra work and loosing money to E-bay it didn't do much for me. Did I mention that E-bay sucks??? Well, it really does! It's frustrating to say the least!!!!
Many good longtime seller have left E-bay over their new very weird policy's and I can't blame them. It's too bad that E-bay doesn't get it that we, the seller, make them money , by paying listing and final value fees, and therefore should be treated with some respect.
Well anyway, I don't want to bore anyone with this, but selling is very slow for a long time now and I just don't want to spend hours listing and handing my money over to mighty E-bay. Maybe I try around mid November for the Christmas rush, but I have to see how busy I am.
It's really too bad. I liked E-bay and the possibilities it provided for us international seller for many years, but now it changed somehow. E-bay the big company is getting too greedy and many buyer want everything for next to nothing...I guess that's what society is like today.
What ever happened to the value of craftsmanship and excellent customer care??
I sure hope it's still out there somewhere......

Besides E-bay I have been busy working on some custom orders and a new baby doll.

She still needs some clothes and I'm working on them right now.

Her name will be Olivia by the way.

I'm also making more Mini Babies for Etsy and some custom orders and I'm working on a custom order Cuddle Baby as well.

On the weekend I found out about a local Christmas market in mid December that I will now be taking part in. I'm quiet excited about it !

In the next weeks my sewing machine will be humming, that's for sure.

Hopefully I have Olivia dressed soon and can show you some more pictures of her.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your Ebay troubles! I've only ever been on Etsy, so I don't know much about selling on Ebay. I have bought the occasional thing there but that's something different alltogether I suppose.

    Olivia is too cute!! I really have a weak spot for baby dolls like her. After I've finished the doll I'm working on now, I'm going to try to make a baby doll as well.

    Good luck with the busy times ahead!!

    P.S. Is that a preemie onesie Olivia is wearing? It's ever so cute!

  2. Thank you Meike!
    Yes, that is a preemie onesie.I have a ton of cute preemie clothes. I had originaly planned to use them for my dolls, but now I rather make the clothes myself. Maybe I list them on my website as extra outfits that can be bought for the dolls. Not sure yet....

  3. Cute doll!
    I've heard more complaints about e-bay...

    love the name Olivia ;)

  4. Olivia is beautiful!
    I think most people go to Ebay to find a bargain and aren't so inclined to get into a bidding "war".
