Snovej Circle 2

I have no photos of my dolls, except one tiny old photo of my witch doll. I tried to make the photo bigger, but it doesn’t have enough pixels, so it’s a bit blurry. It’s a photo I once used as my profile photo on MySpace. I can’t believe there was life before Facebook and I had an account on MySpace! The doll has black woolen hair, with some green strands in it, and a painted face. Somehow she ended up looking like me, so I call her my self-portrait-doll …
