What does it Spell? DOLLS!
Seriously a big cheer and call out to all my wonderful Marie Osmond doll Friends!
I’m sure you have all been wondering why there has been this silence lately on the doll front.
As most of you may know, my dolls have been with us for over 25 years now, which is pretty incredible, and we are so in love with each and every one of them, aren’t we! That’s why I thought it was the right time to explain to all of you the “why’s” or “wise” to why they have been on their curious hiatus!
I know most of you understand that in recent years, the doll industry has changed quite a bit and because of these changes, it has, unfortunately, become increasingly more difficult to produce the type of high quality dolls, that you and I have come to expect over the years, while still keeping them beautiful and affordable. As an award-winning designer and sculptor, I feel that I cannot accept anything less than this standard for you, myself and especially for our cute adorable dolls. They and you deserve this!
Another component in making my decision is that I barely have time to take all my vitamins and pull up my Spanx, let alone sculpt these days!
So my dear doll friends, for this reason, I have had to make the very difficult, but necessary decision, to say “au revoir” to a most wonderful and special part of my life. I realize this may come as a disappointment to some of you – I know it is to me too.
However, there are times and seasons in life for everything. This is just one of those life transitions; but please know that my passion and love of dolls and all of you, will never wane, as I hope it won’t for you either.
My goal was and has always been to bring generations together with doll collecting and I’m so pleased to say that together, I believe we’ve accomplished that. My true dream is that it will continue on through future generations of doll lovers. It has truly been a joy getting to know so many of you because of our shared passion of collecting.
Hey, and who knows, maybe someday our dolls just might come back from their little hiatus That’s the beauty of being a female – we can always change our minds, right?! This I do know, we will for sure, find ways to continue our love of dolls and have fun little get together’s to keep celebrating! It’s our prerogative … and our porcelain .
I truly feel like we are family because we have shared this common bond. I know the friendships we have built through the years will last forever, after all … we haven’t just collected our dolls we’ve collected a lifetime of memories.
I love and appreciate you all more than you’ll ever know!!!
