I have been working hard on my craft since 2004, and I think I have a skill level that shows in my work. I am the do over queen and there are many heads without bodies to suggest that these mistakes drive me to the perfect end. The finished doll always seems to lead to the next doll, one is born out of another. This is why I love making dolls. It is the air I breathe and pretty much defines me. I am a doll maker.

This may sound strange but these bodiless heads and headless bodies speak to me. I have control over the parts and pieces individually, but the position involved in the connection is revealed at the moment the pieces touch one another for the first time. The head moves me to sew it in a certain pose, same with the hands and arms. The whole doll forms itself to be expressive according to its idea of itself.

Georgia and Star



These are the finished dolls. My friend will get the red head. Her name is Georgia. The doll with the purple hair is Star.

I love the long legs and the curvy hips these guys have. I think I am going to continue with this style until another style develops. I really love the faces, they are very inquisitive. They make me laugh and smile. Hope my friend will love Georgia.

The dolls are about 22" tall

Nat,

I have been in this business for several years now, and I am incredibly impressed with your technique. It is professional, different, and produces quality dolls. I can tell these girls are sturdy little things! You should consider applying to ODACA. I think they would love your work!

I love Georgia and Star. Funny the red head reminds me of my sister Georgette and well the purple reminds me of ME in college..yes I had purple hair all about a few weeks as it does not stay well during washings...lol (that was 1988 BTW) Now, it seems funky hair colors are a normal thing. LOL

I hope you have a happy new year. I have had plenty of broken hearted memories too! I am on my 3rd and final husband...lmao.
