Happy 10th birthday DFH!
On September 2nd we celebrated ten years of Waldorf inspired doll and Critter making.
It’s hard to believe we have been going for so long. There are so many wonderful memories. So many awesome mamas and papas. So many adorable little happy faces. Looking back, it’s hard to find the right words to thank you all for allowing us into your lives.
It has been a true joy making something that’s only purpose is to bring happiness and make people smile…especially children. We were blessed with many opportunities to make special friends for children in need and children who were going thru some very difficult times. It has been an amazing journey.
Like all journeys, we often don't know where we will end up. We might begin on one path only to find ourselves heading in a completely different direction toward a different opportunity.
This is where we are today.
As many of you already know, my novel is coming out in April of 2019 with three more follow up novels to be released over the next three years. My life has taken me down another path. I am excited and nervous. Revisions are being wrapped up on my first novel before I hand it back to my editor at the end of the month (I have a deadline for September 28). After that, the real work begins.
As usual, I will keep you updated as that progresses. If you would like, feel free to follow my author pages on FB or IG.

As time moves on, these are where you will find me most often.
Now, back to DFH...
I believe that life is series of phases. You move from one to the other seamlessly. Most of the time, it’s hard to notice when one ends and another begins. This time, it's clear for me, I am beginning a new phase…one that does not leave much time for regular doll making. It also does not leave time for taking custom orders.
So, what does this mean for DFH?
To be honest, I’m really not sure. I’ve been talking to my peeps, mulling over some ideas. Some of these ideas I find very exciting and I know you will too…but I have to wait until we’ve finalized them before I can say anything. Keeping this secret is killing me by the way.
Right now, the one thing I do know for sure is that this will be the last Christmas season our little team will be making RTG and custom dolls.
Over the next 3.5 months we will be making as many as possible as we prepare for the new phase of DFH. So be sure to keep an eye out for the right one to come along…and be sure to snag him or her when you see them.
To make it easier for folks to get a DFH during these last few months, we have decided to change the pricing on our RTGs. To see what exactly that is, visit our online shop.

We also have listed a few custom slots ready for purchase now for those of you who would like to have a specific doll made for you.
It’s been an amazing ten years. When I posted that first little doll on etsy way back in 2008, I had no idea my little shop would grow to the amazing business it has become today. It has been an adventure.
Hopefully you will stick around to see what the future holds. Trust me when I say, you will like what we have in store.
Have a wonderful Day Y'all
