a peek at BlytheCon UK....

I made a quick but memorable, 3-day trip to Edinburgh earlier this month...

With the studio of Scottish jewelry designer, Lynsey Walters for my column in "Where Women Create" on the agenda (and more on that soon) I was also able to attend BlytheCon UK...

...all I can say is...WOW!
Capturing such a dynamic event was a challenge...and while I have oodles of images to edit and share, the format and personalities were all new to me...but a peek at an event like this one must be shared in a timely fashion.

So I am thrilled to share a collection of images prepared by writer, editor and photographer -- and Blythe devotee -- Rosanna De Bellis.

Many thanks Rosanna for the opportunity to share your signature-style collages...I appreciate you being a guest blogger/photographer and allowing me to give a peek into this wonderful world that you've invited me into with open arms and much beautiful enthusiasm...
 I was truly overwhelmed...
 There was a vast array of talent and styles showcased by the designers and artists who shared their art at the event...
Incredible...and yes, I could not help myself, I had to get some new outfits for my own Blythe doll...
 Some folks' have a dedication that goes far beyond the miniature fashions and customized art dolls!
I really enjoyed everyone I met...from the sales floor to the Voo Doo Rooms after party - there was talent and style and many friendships to be found...

Thanks to all for the warm welcome into this artful community.

More on the taking of this photo soon!
