I have great news to share and a Giveaway!!!


I have great news!!! I'm going to be featured as the artist portfolio in the upcoming issue of STUFFED!!! I'm so excited!!! I've already previewed the article and the girls at Stampington did a great job with my dolls!!! Even Jenny Doh (the editor in chief) is talking about them in her blog! It's such an honor to be part of this special edition. It's out on January 1st, don't miss it!!!

I'm going to make a giveaway to celebrate this!!! The prize, of course would be an original doll!

This giveaway is also a Thank you to all the people who supported my art during this year. To participate just leave a message in this post and I'll pick a winner on January first to commemorate that the magazine is out ;) You have until Dec. 31 to leave a comment and to spread the word (if you post about it in your blog, just leave the link and I'll count you as 2 entries) Good luck!
