Flash from the past

This is me from 1983, taken from my local newspaper.  I had been making dolls for 6 years and loving every minute of it.  My daughter Mary loved it too, because she got to keep the experiments, boo boo babies and everything in  between.  This particular doll was my own pattern. 

I stopped making cloth dolls when I was diagnosed with a severe form of eczema on my fingertips, probably from working with the fabric for so many years. 

Lucky for me I found Polymer clay, and was able to start learning to sculpt. 

I still love to make cloth dolls, but I still have the eczema and it flares up when I have been working with the fabric for too long.

This is the only picture I have of this doll.   I lost all of my pictures in a computer crash a long time ago.  I wish so much we would have had digital cameras way back then.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday weekend.

"As One"

I feel so honored to have my sculpt "As One" featured in the July 2012 issue of  Doll Collector Magazine.  This sculpt is very special to me, and I grew very close to these special Conjoined Twin Mermaids.  I was compelled to sculpt them and could think of nothing else during the process.   This sculpt represents all of the beautiful children who are different from the the rest of us, and yet we are all the same.

Pinterest Project

 It hasn't been that long ago that I discovered  Pinterest.  I have to say that I love all the neat ideas I get from browsing.  Since I will have two new Grand babies within 3 months of each other, I decided to make 2 diaper cakes.  The other one I am still working on and will post later.
This blue diaper cake went to my newest Grandson Zander Allen.  He was born exactly one month ago.
He was two days old here and already smiling...I guess he was just happy to be here.  The next cake I will be making is going to be pink, because we will be getting a little girl in July.
Grand babies are so much fun...I have my two year old sleeping right here beside me (we are having a sleep over tonight).  Well I am off to Pinterest again to get some new ideas for my upcoming baby projects...
