All our hearts and prayers go out to the people of Japan.
With the devistation many of us wonder what we can do. Here is what I have done, and it may work for you too.
Lady Gaga is doing a bracelet with all proceeds going to Japan relief efforts. The minimum donation is $5.00 but you can up the price to whatever you want to donate, and all the money goes directly to the Japanese relief. Gaga has a huge fan base in Japan and is very active in that country.
Cyndi Lauper is in Japan right now, she was there for a concert event. She is posting on Facebook that the easiest way to donate is to text the American Red Cross and that will automatically donate $10.00 to the relief effort for Japan. Cyndi Lauper is currently in Tokyo, Japan and asks that everyone who can support the relief efforts to please text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to help the victims of the earthquake and tsunami.
You can also donate on line at the Red Cross website at this link and designate the donation to Japanese relief efforts.

Announcing my first Doll Diva’s Exclusive fashion for this year! It was posted today on Doll Diva’s message board. There were two styles, the cityscape print and and Eiffel Tower print.
Limited edition platinum doll, limited to 999 dolls world wide. I was lucky to get him! Can’t wait for his arrival!
What is the CDDC you ask, well it is the Couture Doll Design Challenge. It is the doll worlds answer to Project Runway! Featuring a talented group of designers from all over, pitting their wits and creative insights against each other challenge after challenge. And the fun doesn’t stop there either, they also have a great group of regular panel judges and a special guest judge for each challenge. I am lucky enough to be the special guest judge on the current challenge. The current challenge hits home and heart for me, “The Edge of Fashion”, the designers are challenged to create a casual fashion that is edgy and avant-garde, taking inspiration from Alexander McQueen and other famous avant-garde designers. Those who know me, know that the avant-garde is my passion, and I love to put an edge to everything I do. Oh, and did I mention the sponsors? How about sponsors like FDQ magazine, and Robert Tonner among many other generous and fabulous doll people and companies!
So come check us out, join the spectators and sing along!
View my photos of the Fashion Royalty convention on my Flickr pages! This year was the best FR convention to date, so many old friends and new faces. The dolls and events were spectacular. It always amazes me that Alain and the Integrity Toys team can top themselves each year, but they always do! I felt out of the loop having missed the IFDC and National Barbie conventions this year due to my moving, so I was excited and re-energized to be at the FR event!
