I must admit I am surprised. I had dreams of her head coming off in shipping to Colorado! I packaged her a little differently than I usually do because of her big hair (she is a Jersey girl after all!). And the pics of the dolls I have seen so far are just AWESOME!
Just checked the Hoffman Challenge site and they have published the list of traveling dolls. I learned my doll will be in trunk C. Dont know if it will be traveling close to home or not as the schedule isn't filled in yet. Here are the list of winning dolls:
1st place: Nancy Hall, "Blossoms"
