I would like to announce that we will be having an Easter Fabric Swap!!!!!!
Please visit our flickr group and post in the thread if you would like to join in on the swap
We will being going through Elfster for the fabric swap, just as we did for the Christmas Swap. Elfster made it really easy and fun to find out what your swap partners likes and dislikes are without them knowing who wants the information:D
Easter is April 12 and participants will need to have their swap packages sent to their partners no later than April 1.
If you have any questions, please feel free to either email, flickrmail or convo me.
If you are not in the video and would like to be, please send me a high resolution image of one of your creations for the video. Just send it to my email address: email@example.com

What's your first name?
I am Jasmin or Jasz (like Jazz the music genre). I was the singer of a mod band in my 20s and all the Brits called me Jazz instead of Jasmin, so Jasz was getting my nickname and I decided to keep it to sign my paintings and drawings later.
Age? I am a thirty-something ;)
And your nickname in the dolls world? *jaszmade
Where do you live? I live in Berlin/Germany
Except the dolls what do you do in the life?
I am an illustrator/ graphic designer, colour addict and typography lover :)
I love to customise Blythe, love Bowie, 60s culture and music, painting, photography, sewing, sleeping, love and cats – I have 2 kitties Gustav a Persian and Rosi a British Short Hair silver shaded sweeeeeetiiiie! I also love books but am too nervous to sit down and read so I listen to audiobooks while I work and craft
What are your favourite dolls?
I love Blythe, especially EBLs as they look a bit moody. The most beautiful Blythe in my eyes is StarD – she is just perfect but at the end of the day I love them all the same :D
Since how long do you collect them? Since september 2007
How did you begin your collection?
It happened by accident when I found a picture of Blythe on Google. It was love at first sight even if I never was a doll person before! Actually I really didn’t like dolls or dolly people before but Blythe strucked me like a bolt of lightning! For me she is the incarnation of the perfect 60s woman
so beautiful, pretty and cute
I fell in love and bought a Lounging Lovely on Ebay. Her name is Luna :)
What would you like to say about your creations?
I am a 60s addict and you will find hints to the mod culture in nearly all of my creations. I think Blythe clothing should be as valuable as the doll herself, this is what I keep in mind when choosing and making these pieces of love – because Blythe deserves only the best!

Since how long do you collect them?I started just recently in April 2008.
How did you begin your collection?
I saw a beautiful customized Blythe on craftster.org, I guess it was Summer/Autumn 2007 and started googeling about this fantastic doll. I was amazed, but couldn’t afford one for myself and was put off by ordering outside the EU. In April this year I began my research again and found a German online shop that offered Blythes J.
What would you like to say about your creations? Everything I make is made with love - I put all my mojo in my creations!
More infos about you:
It's a very important message: You must delete ALL commercial links in your Flickr account.
The rules of Flickr refuse all commercial links and selling proposal.
Most of dolls collectors receive an email from Flickr about deleting their accounts. Most of these persons have an account pro, which they thus paid.
A Flickr group has been created to protest against this. It calls: Flickr love dolly world
"A large number of accounts of collectors of dolls are threatened to be closed by Flickr.
Does Fickr really love the world of dolls?
That to make against this number increasing of threats of locks of account pro?
Is Flickr a place to expose our passion?
Then Flickr loves you!"
Join this group, keep informed and be watchful!!!
