It’s been a while since I have spent time in this space. Summer flew by, and it was fun and full. I spent more time on reading and making clothes than I did making dolls. We ate lots of summer fruits and veggies and just enjoyed the summer.

Had some firsts, a tooth fairy visit and a first time down the big slide alone.



Took an exciting adventure.

My life is in a very transitional stage right now, many changes with many possible changes just around the corner. I get emails all the time to see if I am still making dolls, I am. I am taking things really slowly as all the changes around me start to come together. I won’t be at any Christmas Markets this season, which will be a nice break. I do love to participating in markets but it makes for a a very busy holiday. This season, I will be taking it slow and I have so many project that need catching up on.

Hope you had a wonderful summer and Fall…is just around the corner……and that is pretty exciting!!!

Loving Spring


And these cheeks.



One of my dolls was purchased by Christina of Bamboletta!! When I saw her at my table, I already had a lump in my throat, we chatted, and she is just SO lovely. She looks like a doll and she is so sweet and so genuine. She purchased one of my dolls and I was fumbling over my words and blushing. As a doll maker, there is NO higher compliment in my book.

I have also met such great people at the fairs both vendors and fans, and I am always so grateful for purchases and compliments. Make my heart smile.


Happy May!!!
