I'm back from Mexico! We had a wonderful anniversary! A very nice relaxing time in one of the most beautiful places in the world. It's the fifth time we've been to the Mayan Riviera, I love it there. Saw so many animals, jungles, freaky cemeteries, caribbean seas, wonderful people, good food & lots of drinks!
Now home again, home again. Orders are all shipping out tomorrow and we're wading through the emails as usual. Thank you all for your patience!
When I came home I had some wonderful news - my DOLLS are now available! Yes, I said dolls! Real, cute, viny, poseable dolls - my first collection ever - flower fairy dolls - cute costumes - and they are made by Ashton-Drake - some of the best dollmakers around! I have links and even a phone number where you can purchase them online or on the phone. They are ADORABLE. I am so stoked about them! Also - not to be anti-climactic, I have a bunch of new ACEO Cards for you today! Woohoo!
First of course - the dolls! Wanna hop right to the pictures & ordering info? The info, pics & links are up on my website here:
All the details are there! I am pleased to announce that I have partnered with the good folks at Ashton-Drake (wonderful dollmakers, you've probably seen their BLYTHE dolls, Madame Alexander, Precious Moments, did I mention Blythe, hehe?). Together we have created my very first line of DOLLS! You've been asking me for over a decade for dolls, so now here you go! These are beautiful collectible & POSEABLE fairy dolls! I m so very thrilled to show these to you all! To order them directly from Ashton-Drake online, click below (also lots more ordering & collection info, etc.):

and ask for the Jasmine Becket-Griffith Mini Fairy Doll Collection - Item No. 913522
Exclusively from The Ashton Drake Galleries, each mystical doll in this collection is exquisitely handcrafted in vinyl and beautifully hand-painted detailing silky hair and bright costumes with floral frills. Each fairy doll is bendable for easy posing and includes lovely delicate butterfly wings that are removable. Look closer, each doll bears a tiny signature tattoo designed by ME especially for this collection. These are based on my cute "Flowers" series of paintings - the first doll now available is my Rose Fairy (her name is Regina) - she has an adorable dress of roses and cute butterfly wings (which are detachable!). All the dolls come with a matching stand, too - for easy display! Each is about 4.75" inches (for reference - they're about the same size of a Petit Blythe doll, for you doll collectors in the know!). They're going to continue my collection of dolls with new dolls that come out every month or two - first my Rose fairy, then Black Orchid fairy, Orange Blossom, Impatiens, etc. Too cute! They make great little friends - fun to play with, display as a collectible, collect as art, sit them around your computer at work to keep you company, etc. I'm very proud of them! Again, for details click below to see them on my website and use the links or phone number above to order and reserve my dollies!
