Hand-crafted Cloth Sculptures and Petite Couture



Dreams Are Still Dreams

Posted by dibbledabble1dolls on April 10, 2012 at 10:30 AM

My last posts telling of my cramped over full studio and plans of a new studio are where I still stand....dreaming.  Too many issues came up that deemed a studio a "non-essential" expense...I'm crushed!  So I keep dreaming of the "someday" and wishing on stars..hey it doesn't hurt to try all avenues!

Working in a chaotic studio is difficult but not impossible.  2011 was another year of busy sewing with many projects/challenges and I loved every one of them too!  I have hopes of a more financially productive 2012..this will make the IRS happy and will keep DibbleDabble1Dolls alive.  Rules of the game state you have to show a profit over so many years or your business is no longer a business but will be considered a hobby.  DibbleDabble1Dolls will never be "just a hobby"...there is a need in me to share my love of what I do..with the whole world...a hobby to me is just a carefree making of a few items and being satisfied with that...to spend a few minutes now and then to fiddle around.  That can't be a description of DibbleDabble1Dolls...it is an everyday project in works...things I see, hear or read inspire me to create the next sculpture or a new twist on my Petite Couture.

So here's to 2012....more creations...more blog posts...more regular visits to this wonderful site..my own little world where I can be the "real" me.

One of the changes made to this site was the ending of the instant music you heard when you visited in the past.  I had several comments to the "scared me out of my chair" effect the music had on visitors...it wasn't that the music was unpleasant...they found the tunes nice......but the fact the music seemed to jump out at them was the issue.  One visitor told me how she had to quickly turn down the volume because she was at work when she took a peek to see what was new at DibbleDabble1Dolls...and web use was a "no no" at work...oops!

Will 2012 be a better year than those before it?  Only time and lots of dreams will tell.;)

Sorry to hear the studio has been put on hold! I agree that it's not easy working in chaos, but for me, if I can't see it I forget about it. So, I guess I thrive on at least a little chaos.
sorry about the music too, but it's good for me since I go online in the middle of the night and it won't wake the house when I forget to turn the sound down!
Have a great day!
