Mimisstuff Update

Mimisstuff Terms And Conditions
I did say a while back that I would announce on here when I was accepting commissions, well I didn't get around to formally announcing it but have been taking them from those of you who have asked. Also I get a bit overwhelmed by answering all those messages and I was a little bit worried about that. Don't think I don't want to talk to you, I love getting to know dolly people and their dolls. Maybe you could spread it out a little (hehe). I apologise to anyone who has missed out.

So, I have thought I would answer some of the typical questions, about how I work, so if it doesn't suit, you already know.
I will make each item/outfit by hand and to order, they take me a while to make as I put a lot of detail into each. Also I do currently have a waiting list, this is a "how long is a piece of string" list because it depends on how much real life stuff invades into my sewing time.
I like to have an idea about what you fancy rather than a "can you make something exactly like the blue one" as I have only small amounts of each fabric and attention span for manufacturing the same thing over and over. So a loose brief telling me the colours you (or your dolls!) like and an idea of style. You could have a peek at Flickr; www.flickr.com/groups/975460@N23/ or www.flickr.com/photos/26118463@N05

The prices are as follows;
MJ shoes....$12
Trainers/sneakers....$18
Boots....$15
Dress and knickers....$20
Full outfit including dress/top, leggings, hat/waistcoat, footwear.....$50

All prices include standard shipping, if you prefer insured and tracked shipping please add $6 per order. If you choose the standard method then I cannot be held responsible for any lost after your item has left me (I always get proof of posting so can say that I have definately posted). I am just officially covering myself here, but in practise, both times that this has happened to me I have just made a replacement order.

So how it works is; I put you on the list,preferably with a loose brief and then when I get to your name, I will get in touch to see whether you still want me to make something for you. I will make stuff for you and then send you a picture for your approval. If you like then you can pay me using Paypal at mimis.stuff@virgin.net and I will post out as soon as I can. I would love it if you could let me know when you have received your item and I would also love to see pictures of your dolls in Mimisstuff on the Mimis Stuff Flickr stream.

And finally I would like to thank each and every one of you that has ordered Mimisstuff, I truly appreciate your custom and friendship. It often amazes me that I can make with my fingers stuff that people like and it does also mean that I can participate in a hobby that would be out of my league otherwise. So, best wishes to you all, Miriam xx

Ah, good to see this - I was going to PM you on DoA and see how your piece of string was coming along! XD

Happy Easter, and hope to hear from you soon!

Ah - I am sorry I didn't see this before! It's really helpful, thank you! I'll keep an eye on your blog from now on, as I would love to order a fullset from you. I'll start writing things down so I'll be ready when you open for commissions again. :)

All the best,
Meike
