Pretty Belles

Here's a lovely uncut set from Whitman dated 1965.  This set is numbered 1961 and there is another version 1966 with a different cover from the  same year.  The set includes 2 dolls, Kathy and Karen *my mother's name* along with 6 pages of outfits.  I have a few free days off of work so I'll work on getting some convention photos and souvenirs posted.

2016 Paper Doll Convention

Can I even explain how much fun I've had at the 2016 Paper Doll Convention in Phoenix?!  I will be posting pictures soon!  I met so many great people, artist, and collectors.  I felt so welcomed by the community.  I am certainly inspired to create more art and have lots of great finds to share.  I don't know if I will be able to attend the 2017 Convention because it may be too far away (Philadelphia) and I have a lot to work on! However, I do suggest anyone whose ever consider going to a Paper Doll Convention to save up money and invest in this great experience at least once!  I think I have a life time of memories from this wonderful event!  And so much to blog about!

Here is the adorable Baby Betsy Paper Doll by Whitman from the year 1967.  The set is uncut however the doll has been removed from the folder.  The folder has left some slight staining on some of the pages as well.  Does anyone know the artist of this darling set? The artist is Neva Schultz!

 Now until Sat the 26th there is a coupon for my Etsy shop to save 10%.  The code is CONVENTION  in all caps, one word.  This code is now expired.
