Hi all,
Somehow, a friend encouraged me to start collecting Barbie. It just took on a life of its own. Then searching the internet, I found this site, where others like me seem to be gathering.
I started rerooting here and there about a year and 1/2 ago. Then I started touching up make-up with acrylics. I clean and fix their clothes. I find it relaxing in this loco world we are living in. It takes me back a little to a happier simpler time when I was a kid. I was born in 1963, but started playing with a Bubblecut Barbie and the Roman Holiday dress, because I inherited them from my older cousin.
I have to admire the awesome artists that do OOAK dolls. I don't know whether I can do that or not, but I can sew and do a little diorama. I enjoy looking at everyone's work it definitely provides information and encouragement.
