Dolls have no feelings

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2010 with all the therapy I went through I was at the lowest of my life. Like most of us during that time, I loved watching YouTube videos of crafts and craft ideas. I made stuffed animals, blankets and costumes for my children but I mostly loved making dolls for my daughter. Then, I found reborn baby dolls. I bought all my supplies and doll kits and away I went. I couldn’t afford those fancy ovens so I used a toaster oven and had to somehow Tetris the doll limbs to fit. In short, making these dolls were not only my therapy but they brought out a confidence in me that I could do something on my own since my diagnosis.

Fast forward to 2019.

I spent 2 years planning an international doll event, the first one in Canada. My intentions were to have a show space for new artists and Canadians who couldn’t get to the larger shows.

My family and investors contributed thousands of dollars, man hours because we believed this would be a good start to Canada. That’s what we thought.

I didn’t know anyone in the doll world. I was warned how nasty the community could be but I didn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe in a world full of therapy and happiness they would have the teeth as sharp and evil as the Devil.

The show had good and bad. Vendors who flaked and those who stayed until the end. I’ve heard praise during and at the end from people who appreciated our efforts with encouragement that no matter what happens, to hold another show. I was horribly surprised that mothers and fellow artists could be so cruel. The authorities are involved now because a choice few have taken it to a whole new and dangerous level. I can’t understand how women could preach anti bullying with their children yet perpetuate it online towards other people. Targeted harassment, slander and defamation is the name of the game and it’s a sad day that I am witnessing it all in 2019.

The witch-hunt for proof of “scamming” and fraud has not and will not result in any wrong doing. Perhaps people don’t believe that something and some people are simply just good with good intentions.

I can preach through as many blogs, vlogs, podcasts as I can but the damage that has been done to innocent people is unforgivable and illegal. With their pitchforks and gnashing teeth ready to pounce on the kind and innocence of good people has left me disgusted and my eyes are now wide opened to reasons why social media has policies in place and why I’ve been warned so many times. This is no different from any other proverbial witch-hunt the only difference is the year. I never expected to be accepted in the doll world because I don’t follow their rules. I don’t blindly follow the crowd..

My family and friends have been hurt from all of this. The only thing they wanted was for me to see my dream come true before I had to take a life threatening treatment for my MS. If it was the last thing I’d see, they wanted it to succeed and they did everything to make it happen. I am so happy I got to share my dream with these beautiful people in my life, they sacrificed time, effort, money they all laughed with me, cried with me they refused to let me quit… because of their love for me, they didn’t want to tell me about how horribly they were being treated. They wanted me to heal and for 2 weeks they shouldered all the negativity, lies and bullying for me. Those are the people who matter to me right now.

Dolls have no feelings, people do.

    1. You are searching for me I am not searching for you. It’s hard for you to accept truth as it is. It was a doll show not for pity you came for me. The fact that you’re nasty enough to think I want pity says a lot more about you.

    2. Your reactions to what I write is a “you” problem and I refuse to be bullied by any of you that’s what you don’t get. You have relentlessly found nothing illegal, nothing bad but that it didn’t turn out the way it was planned. Period. You are not hurting me, I have nothing to hide. You are the aggressors because you need it to be so much more but it’s not. People sold their goods, people won awards and were happy.

  2. It is in fact illegal when people pay for a $95 dollar dinner and don’t get a refund after the dinner is “cancelled”. Upon further conversation with the hotel the dinner was actually never scheduled or paid for but that’s a different issue. All of this could have been prevented if you simply refund everyone for the cancelled dinner. You are the one with the foul mouth harassing people about their weight, marital status and financial status. You need to take a look in the mirror and stop making excuses and apologize to the people you hurt both financially and through cyber bullying. People also need to apologize to you for their responses which also would be considered cyber bullying. You could save so much face and get back whatever small bit of respect is left by 1) refunding for the dinner that never happened 2) apologizing for your hurtful words that have tarnished the reborn community 3) stop blaming everyone else and just take some responsibility or call out those responsible to step up and APOLOGIZE.

    1. You weren’t at the end of the show after the winners were announced where we assured everyone would be refunded for the dinner. Unfortunately, you were absent for most of the show with a lot witnesses to it. I have no idea about marital statuses and weight I couldn’t care less about that or anything else, I also don’t know anyone in this community so I don’t really care about their life details it’s not my business. As far as the hotel dinner well I doubt highly that it was discussed as that would be a privacy issue and they did us many favours to keep the show going because they loved the dolls and the owners kept coming in to see, guess you didn’t see that either. I didn’t make any videos or trash anyone’s name that was your choice. I invested thousands to get you a flight and hotel stay out of respect of you as an artist and to have you publicly trash a business shows your character not mine.

      The announcement was made at the end of the show which you were absent for. It’s that simple.

      People have been refunded but that is confidential information and of course they won’t say anything because of this target of hate.
      I have the freedom to write what I want as my expression how people respond is up to them.

      So no, your 1) people were refunded as announced at the show 2) you tarnished it the reborn community yourselves by ganging up and bashing people who tried to do good to the point where a life was threatened 3) blamed who?! You all blamed us for 2 weeks attacked everyone with no facts. I’ve dealt with issues at the show which is also no one’s business. I won’t out anyone for a public cyberlynching not to my people who have worked so hard.
      I was warned how nasty this community was and I’m glad I know now.

      You hated the show, you bailed on people who drove for hours to see you, that hurt them not me. You made hate videos, trashed our names and weren’t even there to hear the announcement at the end of the show telling everyone we were cancelling and would refund, see that’s the sad part.

  3. There is zero getting through to you but it’s okay. I have the tweets of you harassing reborn community members, calling everyone “broke ass bitches” harassing one member about her parenting style and her being single and alone. You are vile on the internet and I am so glad to have timestamps of everything to show Canadian Cyber Crimes. An officer or detective will be calling me within 48 hours, the information has already been sent. You guys aren’t even registered legally as a Canadian Business. You held an illegal raffle. This hurt me deeply to see my fellow friends treated in this manner. You are nothing but a bully online, I see right through you and this is the last time I will be contacting you as your delusional come backs hold no meaning. I wish you the best and that no one else gets hurt from the fraudulent business practices that occurred at IAC

    1. Haha I can say what I want wherever I want if you think it applies to the reborn community that is up to you. I won’t be silenced because people are offended about my tweets, then don’t read them it’s that easy.
      Lol there’s clearly no getting through to you and your own actions of slander I’m sure they have watched and read everything you all did collectively. I have a business license and Canada knows it your opinion doesn’t matter to them. The only bullies are the ones searching me and attacking me online which the police also have copies of. You’re laughable and know nothing of laws that protect businesses from cyberbullying, defamation and slander, especially in Canada. The hotel, the law, witnesses… it’s ok you can continue you with your hunt after 2 weeks still no police at my door, no fraud charges and I’m enjoying the sun. Have a great day.

  5. That’s not even bean… but whoever it is has a point I mean if what ur saying is true just show proof but u don’t u just keep freaking out and saying things and bullying ppl and again everyone has proof of u bullying we all kept all the twitter posts. This all could have been easily addressed if u had made an apology and gave the refunds instead u made everyone including friends and colleagues turn against u because ur wrong. All u had to do was relax instead u decided to insult everyone who mentioned anything negative about the show, u deleted any negative comments about the show as well u r blacklisted in the reborn community not only because u were scamming ppl but because u hurt ppl and didn’t care or even try to apologize to most of them. U say ppl r obsessed with u but there not they just can’t believe a person acts that rudely u do have the right to say what u want but don’t complain when ppl don’t react well to it because they also have a right to comment as well. Again ppl have tried giving u chances to relax and just apologize and try to make it right but u refuse to because either ur to proud to or u don’t care. I do wish u well and hope that maybe one day u will reflect on this and realize that ur actions were not right.

    Also all these cop threats and stuff r really ridiculous no cop is going to care especially when u have been proven to bully ppl any cop would say it’s more of a he says she says situation, as for legal counsel if u actually talked to a lawyer they would have told u not to post about the situation or comment on ppl, and making comments about ppls weight or looks and about them being single (not even sure y being single is a bad thing but ok)

    1. Cyberbullying means when someone creeps them on all social media tracks their friends and says nasty lies about them.. you’re guilty of all of it. I haven’t gone searching for you or any of your shit because your opinions are non factual and you’re not worth my time. I don’t owe you anything who do you think you are anyway? The reborn doll police?! Please, “blacklist” me whatever the hell you want in your community there are other communities and lots of people out there who appreciate my talents and focus on my art. Lawyers and police don’t give a shit about a bunch of keyboard warriors who are angry about a party 11 days ago. Give me a break and get over it. You don’t want to come to my next show that’s cool too the world will continue to turn.
      I’m not mad at any of you I’m just over it and want you to stop picking on my friends who worked day and night, traveled, organized, helped plan the show the best they could for me. That’s what friendship is but none of you want to stop you want to be right. And you are all so wrong.

    2. Also there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being a single mom and/or over weight. I was a single mom and I’m overweight but when you get nasty and talk shit about my family and friends I get pissed. Simple.
      The thing about me is I’m not like any of you. I would never drag anyone like you all have so I don’t care to associate with anyone like that. If you don’t like how I express myself then DON’T read it. I’m accepted the way I am by more than your group so I guess the short answer is “No” I’m not here to impress you. There are the lot of you who have wrote some pretty disgusting things about my friends do you see me doing that to any of you? I know I’m the better person. But ok 👍🏼

  6. It’s not about how you express yourself, you have the right to free speech. It’s about your business being fraudulent and people not receiving the goods and services they paid for. Apologize for that! You can be the person you want to be and say what you want but when you charge people $95 for a dinner they didn’t receive. And while you can offer a re-do next year free of charge you also legally need to offer a full refund. All people want is there money back and a sorry we messed up….

  7. Lawyers and police do care about fraud, it’s a pretty big deal. Especially with an accredited business. So as a business owner it is your responsibility to give the customers what they paid for. And if for some reason you can’t then you refund them appropriately. That’s all people want, no one wants to attack you they just want their money refunded accordingly.

  8. I don’t know why my comment didn’t show. But you are right I didn’t. But my niece did. I just found the website so I will have her contact hopefully an email or number there. If not I am sure Krystal who she saw at the show can help.
