Woombye, Australia.

The town where I live, Woombye is abundant in pineapples and home to the Big Pineapple (cheesy tourist attraction) so I wanted to make sure Zadie got to visit. On her very first day I took her to a local art exhibition, a place I’d never visited before (but had always wanted to!). We also got to go on a boat cruise with a bunch of friends and Zadie got to pose with two little girls who both wanted to keep her - I had to explain the big journey she’s on and how she’s just making a quick stop here in Australia! I live not that far from the beach so Zadie came with me on a few beach missions; she also got to meet our cat Gremlin, who happily shared his nap time with her. Zadie also visited some parks, went on a few busk walks near our home and had some quiet moments as well.

Zadie was the sweetest visitor and I hope she remembers her trip fondly and has a blast in India! Thanks for letting me be a small stop in her huge journey – I miss her already!

Where the magic happens.

Watch a Clonette doll come to life... 

Monday, 16 March 2015

From Launceston, Tasmania, Australia to Oslo, Norway.

I am THRILLED to finally share the result of the not-so-little project Bianca has been working on for the past few months. Needless to say Bianca has exceeded all my expectations and I cannot praise her enough for her creativity and her patience. She created the lovely avatar on our Facebook page and our new header. She also turned the short history of Clonette dolls into a brilliant infographic. And then I fell for one of the doodles she sent me, and here is the end result: an awesome suitcase.

Visit Bianca's blog and tell her she's magic!

And a few years later, she found an unpublished Italian love letter in the archive...

Ada mi manca, amici belli.

Mi manca come certi piccoli tocchi di magia che sappiamo regalare alla nostra vita, nonostante i suoi ritmi frenetici e l’infinita gamma di serietà che ci viene richiesta quotidianamente.

Ora, voi eravate al corrente che portarsi dietro una bambola rossa alta 30 cm fosse parte di un progetto del cuore, della condivisione. Ma moltissime persone, tra social network e vita reale, mi hanno preso per pazza. Alcuni accennando un sorriso benevolo, altri dicendomelo apertamente.
