I've been making crafts since I was a little girl. When I was a child, I remember taking out those special Christmas Items , an old Santa of my mother’s that sang White Christmas in Bing Crosby’s voice and that Handmade Santa on Skis that belonged to my great grandmother (from her childhood).The stories about these treasures never got old.

As I do use molds for some of my items they are still very labor intensive to cast and clean up. The real talent is in the painting and the imagination of what this item will become. I have a special technique that I use where I shade my work, I don't stain it to give it dimension, I use multiple shades of red to paint one santa coat etc.

My dolls are 100% handmade each face is hand sculpted out of a ball of paper clay NO MOLDS then baked, painted and then each body is handmade, decoupage, cardboard tissue etc. The clothes I sew on a machine or hand sew the tree or feather tree sprig is all handmade. I even made the carts for my pull toys on my jig saw. My dad was in construction and always had us kids around machines I have a power drill, sander, jig saw and dremel and I know how to use them all.
