I AM AN OCCASSIONAL DOLL MAKER.

And I am pleased to introduce these little cloth dolls to you as they come to life in my hands ... something that continues to amaze and inspire me. 

Each is handcrafted with great intention:  to be a toy, to be a companion, to be a mirror of the childhood experience.  These creations are endearing.  They are comforting.  And they are intended to inspire open-ended play, creativity and growth.  

"A handcrafted doll is one of a kind, an individual which carries the spirit of its maker in its stitches and absorbs the spirit of the child who loves it it."     -  Kaethe Kruse

Thank you for coming to have a peek at who has traveled through my hands and who is now playing with me in my little work space. Stay a while, or just have a quick look around. And please come back soon.
