As some of you may know, if you saw a "spat" I got into with a woman who used our photos for her own presentation of a history of Ann Estelle that she shared on Mary Engelbreit's Facebook page, it was our original hope/desire four and a half years ago (?!) to be able to present our photos of the Tonner dolls and outfits side-by-side with the Engelbreit inspiration artwork. We asked the appropriate people in Engelbreit's corporate structure but were never actually given permission to use her drawings, and so we did not use 'em (well, except those that I sneak in for the occasional blog post .....)
Good news came at the recent Tonner convention when Andria met Mary Engelbreit and discussed the idea with her again. This time she gave her blessing!!!!
So hopefully, sometime in the future you will see "new and improved" pages under the "Ann Estelle Story" pull-down menu! I'm not sure if Andria is interested in working on this part of the project so it may be up to me alone .... yikes, I'll have to tear myself away from my genealogy work and re-learn how to put Weebly pages together!! I think that once this "feature" is included we can, without a doubt, declare this to be THE magnum opus website for the ten inch Ann Estelle dolls!!!!!! R.
