Soulportals.com, KokeshiVillage.com and Kokeshitrends.com are solely owned by "Madelyn". Many volunteers have helped and contributed to the growth of the site I thank them for their time and generosity.
Soulportals.com has two redirects KokeshiVillage.com and KokeshiTrends.com why?
Initially soulportals was a domain for all my collections and poetry. Eventually I began filtering everything out until it became mostly a reference site for all things Kokeshi. Because Soulportals (SP) was already known and bookmarked by many users we kept the initial domain name and created the two additional ones in hope of eventually transferring everything over. KokeshiVillage would be for our group and all the information contained within Soulportals.com and KokeshiTrends would be for our Online Journal. At this point we feel it is best to leave well enough alone, perhaps in the not so near future we may make some changes.
After many years of being an active resource for Kokeshi we have had the honor of being referenced and mentioned in various publications. I've started to compile a list, as this had never come to my mind until someone mentioned it to me. Many thanks to authors, journalist and other websites that have shared our website. We are happy that we could be of assistance in your Kokeshi journey.
