My name is Beth, but most people online know me as Lomi. I'm an author and artist, as well as a collector and customizer of ball-jointed dolls.
I specialize in creation of costumes and clothing for dolls of all sizes, and share my patterns free of charge on my website. At the beginning of 2016, I began sharing my creations and customizations on my YouTube channel, Lomi's Playground.
In spring of 2013, the prohibitive costs of childcare in the United States forced me to leave my job to become a stay-at-home mother. This sacrifice of income meant I quickly discovered that to keep pursuing my hobbies, they had to become self-sustaining. Though I've maintained a trickle of income to support my creative work by selling goods through Etsy and even had my custom doll clothing sold through a niche venue located in Illinois, keeping the shop stocked with goods to sell takes away from my opportunities to design new things and teach others to create.
This is where Patreon comes in.
While the patterns and designs offered through my website will always be free to the public, as a supporter, you have the opportunity to help shape my creations, and keep them coming in the months ahead!
