It's all gone media crazy!

So, my very helpful friend and business colleague, Neil Gibson, put me in touch with the South Wales Echo who have just published an interview with me talking about how I got started making dollys and all that sort of jazz. It was in todays paper and I have to be honest when I say I thought people might read it and go "oh, there we are then."  But already, I have had an email, and a phone call from BBC Radio Wales asking me to go down and see them to do an interview about the dollys aswell! I'll be on with Jamie Owen, who hopefully will like them as much as the Echo people did. It's all feeling very strange though. Don't know if I'd want this sort of thing all the time....

latest delivery

So, having been in cahoots with her husband, we managed to deliver Bee Kings It'sameedoll! today. She wasn't expecting it at all and came home to a great suprise of herself sitting on the mantlepiece. Her husband, Simon, is already a proud owner of an It'sameedoll! and couldn't resist getting one for her aswell. 

Meanwhile, the next dolly under construction is a present for a best man from the groom who is also hopefully going to be featuring it in his column in "You and Your Wedding" magazine, so keep your eyes peeled for that one. He's looking good so far and has also allowed us to experiment with a few techniques which have worked wonderfully.

Also, and finally, we've been interviewed for a weekly column in one of our local rags, the South Wales Echo. Should be interesting to see the response, if any, from that and we will post the links to both articles as and when we get them!
