Doll and Teddy Bear show coming in June

I had to learn pretty quickly to put together a full page ad for a Doll show. 
We were informed that our ads for the show were required immediately if our work was to appear in their show catalog. 
That was news to me. I had to whip something up pronto!
 This was the best I could come up with in just a few hours:
This will be the first doll show in which I've participated.
 It is the
 International Doll and Teddy Bear Show
 in Asheville, N.C. on June 23-24th
 Apparently, the exhibitors are coming from as far away as Russia. Have you ever noticed how many incredible doll artists are Russian?!
It promises to be an interesting event......
I may be in over my head.


  1. May you do very well at this show dear Jeri.

    I have noticed that needlework and other artisans from Russia do absolutely beautiful work, no matter what they put their hands to. Their work inspires me yet at the same time makes me feel I have much to learn and along way to go.

    Have a lovely holiday ~ FlowerLady

  2. Oh Jeri, you did a great job, considering you had very little time to do this! But your work shines and speaks for itself, it truly does. How I wish I could catch one of your shows! Have fun and report back so we can see!

  3. no way are you in over your head. your pieces are fantastic! i wish i was closer to ashville!

  4. I bet you are going to be the star of the show. Good for you stepping out of the box.

  5. Oh, I promise you.... you are not in over your head. I have seen no one make better critters than yours!! You will do splendidly!

  6. I can't imagine anyone making your sort of characters could be any better! You're work stands out on its own merit. It ought to be fun, though, seeing all the other great artists. Think of the ideas you'll come away with.

  7. Wonderful! I would love to be there just to see your incredible furry creatures. You are blessed with an amazing talent. Thank you for sharing them.

  8. Jeri, you're bound to have a wonderful success at this show. Your creations are truly characters, That, together with your fine craftsmanship, materials, and creativity, are going to amaze the Asheville visitors. For sure. xo

  9. Dear Jeri - I am sure your work will be a great success in this show. Your furry friends are just adorable. Have a wonderful week. Hugs!

  10. Thanks to all of you for your confidence in my work, I mean it. It' not the sort of show I usually do, but I think it will be very educational. There are some attending artists whose work I really admire and I'm enthusiastic about seeing their creations in person.

  11. Jeri,
    I am trying to catch up. I think you have done a great job on your ad for the Doll show, and I am know you will do very well at this event.
    Russian Dolls, yes, they are amazing, but I have to say that I believe the best "Doll" artists out there are German. Just my opinion. I sure wish I could be there, but I will be thinking of you.


Please do leave a word or two, we SO like to hear from you!
