We are home again from Las Vegas & the final stage of ODACA 's standards committee. Yes, we TAODA artists that had applied & suffered the long processes can howl with victory ! Now it was a fantastic journey with a goal for us to attain the recognition & status of such a prestigious doll organization. Proud peacocks are crowing & on cloud 9.
The luncheon was a delight with an excellent program, delicious food,favors, drawings, and a souvenir doll created by Maryanne Oldenberg. Wow! Then table favors were given & a centerpiece doll by Deanne Hogan was won. I didn't win any but drooled anyway.
The sales room was crowded by UFDC attendees , ODACA members , and the public.Great learning experience & interesting people present who collect dolls.As a new ODACA artist I can truthfully say that I'm looking forward to next year already. The drawback was having to miss NIADA & seeing more of Vegas other than casinos. Those one arm bandits are not a personal favorite for eye candy!
