I have chosen Sugardoll because some years ago my partner has created wood toys for parrots, called "Sugar wings" (like one of our parrot )it was not his work but it was a nice success so I decided as a tribute to take "sugar" as my brand, because is thanks to him if I made customs dolls.
Hi, my name is Amandine ( Mandy for friends) 40 years old, in relationship with the love of my life since 17 years, I would to say first: I'm very sorry for my bad english I speak and write better Spanish than English ;) anyway now a little bit about me: I'm French but I lived in different places in the world, like French Polynesia (Bora Bora) and in Spain almost 18 years, I'm travel addict (especially a big love for Thailand), I'm a dreamer and optimistic person , and I love art, drawing, ( I draw since my childhood ) I love also animals and nature (I worked in the past as healer in a parrots shelter with 350 birds). Before leaving Spain in 2017 I was working in a big company in Barcelona as manager and team trainer, I took the train every day to go to the "big city" but when I turned back home, I was in a countryside village in my little paradise, with my horses, parrots, goat, chicken, dogs and rabbit, and I was also dog breeder during 10 years, I won with one of my dog born at home the world championship of beauty in Italy and the Crufts in UK it was a big pride for me, after that I leave the dog world, I found the dolly world, first as collector, my first custom Blythe come to me for my birthday in June 2016, I fell in love with all this amazing cuties, but I know blythes since 2001/2002 first I find them strange and ugly but fascinating, and I start to take some informations about them in internet, I follow many conversation from different passionate people, but I find them at this time too expensive and hard to find so I forgot them for a while, I was very busy with my life, my dogs and my work. In 2017 some months ago to leave Spain for the work of my man and mine, one day I opened my facebook and I came across a beautiful custom Blythe made by my dearest Suedolls her name was "Tallulah", it was love at first sight and start to follow some beautiful and famous customizers, I buy another custom for my own collection, and I spent hours admiring customs. My lovely fiancé see all my interest and I think he was a little bit tired of hearing me talk about dolls all the time :) so he told me: " Why you don't try to made dolls for you" it was the best advice he gave me, I was so excited, but afraid too but I decided to buy some tools and fake blythes to try... it was soooo addictive I start with 1, 2,3... and after that I couldn't stop it!! this is a real passion and I love that... now with some experience I try to made only real and original Blythes, of course I still a beginner and I learn every day again; but when people start to ask me to buy my dolls because they like them it was my best pride and joy, and then it's a part of my life and work and my passion, I collect also some dolls from different wonderful artists, and I really started to customize end of 2017 now I'm living in France in our new house in the country as I love and I'm also working in the business of my man.
