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.

My Adventure

The last 4 months have brought three new people into my life. My life now is about family, and all the free time is given to two wonderful boys. The same two I have been sharing in my previous blogs. I haven't given up on the dolls, but finding time to create has been difficult.

My energy has been put into developing dolls that I can one day have licensed. Georgia and Star have been transformed from Art Dolls to dolls that can be played with. I will now release them into the arms of two, 6 year old boys who have adored them from afar. They have been waiting with wide eyes watching me make their new playmates.
So I hope to make a few to sell and my hopes are even bigger for the possibilities of a future where thousands of kids will have the chance to create their own adventures with Georgia and Star.
