Happy New Year! The kick off for 2013!

Let me start out by first saying Happy New Year!

2012 was a busy and crazy year.  We brought on some awesome mamas to help us and we took the biggest step of our lives with this little business of ours when we moved into our shop.

I don't think I need to say that moving from our house to a separate physical location has been a huge deal for us.  To say it changed everything for us would be an understatement.  We have had to spend a great deal of time getting used to the new dynamic.  I'm not really sure if we are completely used to it now or not.  Its completely different getting up in the morning and going into the shop to get work done.  This part alone is weird to me as its been within arms reach 24/7 for the past 4 years.  

Having an actual shop location has also brought us some other great benefits as well.  Since we now have a "brick and mortar" space, for the first time since we started making dolls, we have been able to negotiate better prices on some of our materials.  Yarn alone has always been a huge cost,  we have always had to purchase our yarn at retail prices.  Thanks to our new shop, we have finally been able to work out wholesale discounts.  Our savings is good news for you guys,  as we are able to pass this on to you.  You may have already noticed the lowered price of our MTO's, this is where they will remain. 

You will also notice with the first RTG upload of 2013,  that our RTG prices too will be lower than they have been.  I will leave the exact amount as a surprise for Preview day.  

Going forward, our goal is to grow this little business of ours.  
To reach out to even more people and introduce them to the quality and artistry that is Dragonfly's Hollow. We will be hiring more folks to work in the shop to help us make more dolls as well as  Critters, both RTG and MTO, and clothing as well as whatever new creations end up being dreamed up in the process. 

2012 was an amazing year,  we look forward to 2013 being equally amazing...and we are thankful that you guys are along for the ride.

Have a wonderful and happy new year!

Good Afternoon all...

Hey all, sorry its taken me so long today to get online and post.  Suffice to say I am a little single minded right now trying to make sure we get all the dolls out so they can make it home in time for Christmas.

We will not be doing an RTG doll upload this week.  
We are focusing our energies on getting the Christmas MTO's out the door.

We do indeed have ponies...and we have decided to put them up randomly over the next few days.  We will post on Twitter and on Facebook when they are going to be posted...we will give you at least a 10 minute heads up on them.

MTO's -  all the MTO slots we will have available for the week have been released in the shop...its just easier for us this way.

...and, one more thing we are doing...

We decided that we wanted to have some we released 15 Little MTO slots that are priced at $150 and 5 - 12 inch MTO slots that are priced at $165. Its just one way we are saying THANK YOU to all of you :)

 Those of you on Twitter, that code is valid for these too :)

More Choices..Wefted Mohair

We have received many requests from folks asking that we make wefted mohair an option for MTO's.  We agree it is indeed a natural option to offer.

Made from the hair of an adult mohair goat, it looks and feels exactly like real hair.  It only comes in natural hair colors and we have chosen 6 of them for you... Auburn, Blonde, Carrot, Light Warm Brown, Deep Brown and Dark Brown.

Talia has Auburn weft

Rory's doll has blonde weft

Lisa has Dark Brown weft
We are offering them for 14 inch size in two body styles either our regular 14 inch body or an Amberwing.  What's the difference between the two?  Well, they are both about 14 inches tall but the Amberwing is more slender than the regular 14"  and they have pointy toes...fairy toes.   

14 inch dolls will come wearing a regular dress, panties and wool felt shoes.

An Amberwing will come wearing a printed fabric petal dress like the one below, with panties and wool felt shoes.  
Wings are NOT included...we intend to begin offering those as a separate item in the shop shortly.

Prints will vary and will be chosen by us based on what we have available at the time.

We have created a separate listing for avoid confusion.  Here is a link...

There will be 5 slots made available each week.  They will be announced the same way we announce all the other MTO's

The first set to be released are currently available in our shop.  

We are pretty excited to offer this as a regular item...we hope you all like it too.
