Michelle I am so sorry you are having so much trouble with people and drama! It is nobody's business what you are going through and you don't have to explain anything to anybody... :evil: Put your head up because they don't come any better than you and shame on those who condemn! :heart: :heart: Violet

I am in shock. I have never heard a negative thing about you or your work. I am sorry that you have been hurt.
I am so very sorry about all your X put you through. I can't even imagine! You are a very brave woman! Many blessings to you!

Wow I am gobsmacked reading this. I didn't know you were gone for bad reasons. I never read a single bad remark or post about you ever so not sure who is doing this but find the dolly world isn't so nice any more.
How heart breaking to know you have been so badly betrayed by your husband and his family as well. Such deceit by his family is mind boggling to me. I am so happy to read you are coming back to life and conquering this bad time in your life. Good luck to you in your dolly adventures. Remember us vinyl doll ladies as well as the silicone lovers! :foryou: :grouphug: :grouphug:

Hi Michelle, I don't post much. Read more than I post but how sad that people can't just behave in this life. I haven't heard or read anything bad about you and I am truly sorry for all the pain that you have endured over the last few years.

I love your dolls and think they are Awesome too. :elephant:

Michelle,
I am so sad to learn that you have been hurt, first by your husband and then by doll collectors.
I have never heard a negative word about you
Back when I was a collector of OOAKs I used to spend hours drooling over your gallery pages, indecisive about which one was my favorite. They gave me so much pleasure and that was even without owning one.
As others have stated...pay no attention to haters and let go of the pain.. You are much admired and I for one am glad that you are back in business.

Hi, you do not know me, but through your beautiful dolls I feel I know you. I have loved your babies forever. They have always been beautiful. The pain that comes from life can be very hard to wrap your brain around. No matter how young, pretty or rich you are....the story is the same and it hurts the same. I really feel the ladies here have enjoyed your talent, every time there is a chance for one of your little ones to come in to our worlds. The real friends will always be there. I just was able to get a sweet little ooak of yours signed with "Misty 05" on her back. I just love this sweet little mite. Take care and keep your chin up.

Glad to see you back Michelle. I'm amazed by what that man put you through, it's really a shame. No child of mine would ever be allowed to pull such a stunt on a spouse and live to tell the tale. I hope everything will be better and better for you now, can't wait to see your new babies.
