Autumn's Profile

About

Mamazakka is Autumn Sousanis; also-known-as Autumn Dunbar; and also-known-as "Mama" to six little ones, ages 9 and under. Life is definitely busy, and I'm always finding new ways to juggle kids and creating.

Currently I am obsessed with wood. I recently bought a scroll saw(!) and now my sewing machine, Dremel and saw all are vying for attention. Wooden dolls are coming soon, with fine, articulated joints - I am so excited!

I still love matryoshka dolls, please check out my sold items to see what I have made in the past, and expect new items to crop up frequently now that baby Lucy can climb up and down stairs and fend for herself somewhat. (Yay Lucy!) You should see her football-esque manuevers as she grabs and runs away with the older kids' toys! Atta girl!

I am often found in the center of the house, in my 'studio' (aka the dining room!) and my children circle round me, climbing, yelling, reading, playing and occasionally eating - but in the kitchen. Only the eldest 2 are in school so far, so most days there's a lot of us here. My husband complains that someone is ALWAYS sleeping (not really true) and so I say he should try to do more writing and less piano playing ;)

One of my biggest challenges is painting tiny features on my dolls while someone watches, perched on my knee. I kid you not.
Thanks for stopping by!
