Introduction

Post by BelovedBundles94 » Wed Apr 10, 2019 2:51 pm

Hi everyone!

My name is Natasha and I’m from the UK. I go by the same username on YouTube and instagrams. I’m a parent to my daughter, Amela who’s 4. She has severe autism, global delay and is my world.

I’ve been collecting for just over a year now and have 6 reborns (1 of them was gifted to Amelia by the artist so not technically mine haha). I finally decided to join the site because sometimes I just feel Instagram can be slightly too focused on aesthetically pleasing feeds or who has the most followers - I just want to talk dolls haha!

Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself and apologise in advance if I don’t know all the lingo or what the buttons mean. I will pick it up I promise haha!

Xx

:hi ya: Welcome!! So happy you decided to join us. :)
They’re a great bunch here, and if you have questions, there’s bound to be someone who can help. :)

I look forward to seeing your collection. But, I warn you, these reborns are addicting, and being on Doll-Fan can seriously erode your bank balance. :lol: Just ask anyone on here. :lol:

Whereabouts are you from in the U.K.? I am originally from there. :)
I wish I’d been into dolls when I lived there, so that I’d be able to go to all the wonderful doll shows they have there now. :) Have you been to any?
Hugs Annette

Honestly I have 6 and that’s far too more than I ever wanted haha! My newest rule is that if I buy a new baby, another must leave. That has put me off so far as I love them all haha! I’m in Surrey, where are you from originally? I’ve been to a couple and although they were lovely, they aren’t anywhere near as impressive as what I’ve seen of Rose! I’m incredibly jealous of the US haha!

Everyone seems really nice here, I’m so pleased that I decided to join! Xx

Lol......that’s a popular saying on here....sell one to buy one....but it doesn’t always work that way. 😉I have said the same thing, but when it comes to deciding who has to go, it’s not all that easy. :lol:

So, you’ve been to the Rose doll show in the States? I am envious! If I wasn’t such a scaredy cat about flying, I’d love to go to the shows down there. :roll:

Yes, they’re a great group here. :)

Small world! I too, am from Surrey. :) Whereabouts are you? I was born in Carshalton, but we moved a bit, mostly in Sutton and Cheam, but lived in Mitcham when I was very small, and Crawley for a little while. Last home was in Cheam. :)
Hugs Annette

No I haven’t been - I wish! I just see it on YouTube and through the Instagram accounts that I follow. I have my daughter 90% of the time so a long haul flight would be out of the question! I’m from Egham (Runnymede borough)! Such a small world to find someone else from Surrey on here! Xx
