FROM RJWright in April! A Guest Post

RJW in April:


The 2016 'A Time to Remember" is Approaching!

The R. John Wright 2016 Convention is rapidly approaching...and this is our most fabulous lineup of special events we have ever had. There will be a an event with an extremely rare RJW sewn-face doll. An event with our own logo elf, Periwinkle. Another event will feature Winnie-the-Pooh and yet another will spotlight dear old Raggedy Ann! The Wizard of Oz event will feature an RJW Munchkin. The most exciting thing about all of these events is the souvenirs will be extremely limited to ONLY 100 pieces each! That is a small edition and trust us, these dolls are incredible. You will want them all!


To read the individual breakout event details, click here or the photo below!
As an RJW INSIDER, you get to see never before released photos of preliminary clay sculpts of what is on the design table. In the last issue, we showed you Bonzo and since that issue, he has changed quite a bit, and you get to see exclusive photos of the sculpt progression.

National Pet Day is on April 11th
Meet Mickey!

"The first, named 'Guff', started out as my cat before I met Susan. He was a Russian Blue who we had for 18 years. Our 2nd cat was named 'Pepper' who is is in the photo on the left.  This was the family cat that grew up with our children. He lived a charmed life for a whopping 23 years! He is 22 years old in the photograph with me. Our current cat is named  'Mickey' after our favorite mouse! He is a dead-ringer for our previous cat, Pepper. Like all our cats, Mickey is an outdoor cat - independent but very affectionate. IMO the perfect pet as he loves to snuggle. We bring him to the office from time to time and he hangs out in his 'man cave' in the design room. Or quite often he can be found sprawled out on the sofa in my office."  - R. John Wright
If you have a photo of your pet, send it to our social media team and we would like to feature you on Facebook!

She has made dolls, priced dolls, repaired, dressed, and studied dolls and her blogging work can be found on the doll collecting section of about.com and on her personal doll blogs, Doll Museum, and Dr. E's Doll Museum blog. Ellen is a fan and collector of R. John Wright dolls and we were fortunate to have her guest blog for us. We will be featuring a monthly series of subject of her choice in, "Ellen's Take".
