DOLLMAKING - PRIMITIVE CRAFTS - AND MUCH MUCH MORE
Thank you for dropping by - I so appreciate your taking the time to look at my blog,
I create one of a kind unique characters . I am passionate about my art and love to incorporate whimsy and usual elements or themes into my pieces. Although I create dolls for all seasons and holidays, I must admit that I adore Halloween and love to make witches and pumpkins and things that go bump in the night.
My work has been published in Art Doll Quarterly and Prims .....Cordelia and Niles, my witch and cat combination were honored to be on the cover of the 2012 Autumn issue of Art Doll Quarterly
In response to many inquiries:

New little Queen Anne - she is dressed in one of my favorite fabrics which I hoard for special projects - can't see well in the photos but it is an amazingly rich red - beautiful and I must admit that this little Queen is a bit homely - so figured she needed a really nice dress. She is going to be a Christmas gift to my sister Bonnie - I think she will like her.
Nana my Nana Angel
is on her way to her new home in LA - thank you Karen and hope you love her,
Maida Doll Group - Making Antique Inspired Dolls and Accessories Nothing New Challenge Doll,
All cloth - all repurposed materials.. She was so much fun to make and it had been forever since I made an all cloth doll - this was a fun, fun challenge.
Here are a few more Halloween creations I did this year, a collecter in Minnesota - bought three of my Halloween items - Thank you Krista - not only is she a collector but she operates an Artist Gallery, I so appreciate her Patronage.
Juse wanted to add a few photos of my latest works, I have been very busy but been able to find some time to do some fun Halloween projects. Above is another set of Izannah sisters that have gone to a collector in Illinois - Mavis and Mercy were so fun to make - my first with bare feet - which I thought were going to be a breeze, wrong, but they turned out okay, their dresses are wonderful fall inspired prints - I was so very happy how they turned out. They are very pretty and serene girls.
Back in June I made an Izannah inspired Bride - Honor who went to a private collection in New Jersey,
Barbara, Honor's owner felt that she was missing something and had me make her a groom. He was a blast to make and I was able to give him all the attributes that insures that he will be a good husband. I hope that they have a long happy union.
These sweet girls are on Ebay right now - looking for a good home, they want to stay together
They are sisters and I named them after two of my favorite aunts. If you know me you might ask why not name them after some of your own sisters - I mean there is Bonnie, Judie and Jill - well I am just not good enough yet in my dollmaking to honor those incredible women.
My sweet Pumpkin Headed Doll - she was so much fun to make and design - and she has such a wonderful character - I know that may seem strange but as I make my dolls I kind of get to know them more and more as they evolve. I have always been a bit fearful of creating a Chucky - Yikes.
I dropped my peasant angel Ysabel at the post office this morning, she is going to a new owner in Maryland,
which is good - Ysabel loves blue crabs cooked in Old Bay Seasoning, but as she has watched over me for a couple of weeks - I will miss her.
I think I need to do another angel - I liked have an angel watch over me.
