An invitation...

by Alison Rasmussen

While browsing the web earlier this week, and taking care of tax-related documents of my own, it occurred to me that in today's society, we expect our artists and creative people to not only create, but to also market, package and display their creative items in such a way that pleases us and is ready for us to consume and enjoy. I wonder how often that a) contributes to artist burn out and b) ignores smaller artists who aren't ever able to get that organized.

Maybe there is be a better way to display smaller, hand-crafted (or even not hand-crafted) items as they are related to the doll market. I'd like to do whatever small part I can to help promote these artists. That being said, I'd like to start a regular feature on the blog that spotlights a particular doll artist, and we can do our part.

If you have a doll-related business, and you'd like us to link to your site, please leave a comment below! We'd love to hear more from you.
