I am:

* A toy collector
* compelled to make cute stuff in my spare time
* afraid of slugs
* all about learning new things
* easily distracted by shiny things
* affected by my surroundings, especially colors
* out of touch with what's cool
* hungry, probably

I have loved pose dolls since I was a little girl, when I had a pink frilly one sitting on my dresser in the 80's. I had no idea who she was or where she came from, but I loved her deep sparkly eyes, twiggy legs and squishy shoes. I lost track of her somewhere along the way, and forgot about pose-dolls entirely until I got back into dolls as an adult. I love Blythe, vintage japanese dolls, and kitchy handmade things, so pose dolls are the perfect doll for me!…

I have been making things with my hands my whole life, but don't consider myself a "crafter." Making things by hand is just what we did in my household when you couldn't afford what you wanted or when the thing you wanted didn't really exist. (or when you just needed something to keep your little hands busy!) I still feel this way about handicraft, and would keep everything I make except I have run out of room on my toy shelves!

I am lucky enough to live in beautiful San Diego with my better half, Paulkaiju.
