In 1972 I started my ceramic business Creative Ceramics
out of my home. So I could be home to take care of my children.
Then in 1980's I started Barb's Doll Shoppe. I traveled many states to sell my dolls and doll clothes. At the end of the 80's i opened my first storefront. I taught many classes in a 100 mile radius. Sometime teaching 4 separate doll classes in a weekend. Also at this time I entered a reproduction doll (Hilda)
in the largest Doll Shows in Calif. I took Best of Show against all other professional entries. What a thrill. And did that 2 more times,
In 2000 I decided that I would look for a full time job now that I was an empty nester. I have been working at this job for 13 yr on May 8 2013. In Jan of 2011 I decided to add a new dimension to my talent and open an ETSY acct. I love selling my watch bands to many people and want to share this with others. So here I am. I do dolls as ordered. Ceramics on request and I will be adding a new dimension to this great group: I love to sew. I have made beautiful christening gowns for dolls and real babies. I will be adding diaper bags also.
I love what I do and I am very good at what I do. My cards that hang from my finished doll state: Precious Today, Heirlooms Tomorrow. Thanks for coming in to see BJFDESIGNS
I am a full time business owner again. Ready to provide you with the best products I make. Do to some back and shoulder surgery last July and Oct 2014. My job out of my house came to an abrupt halt when I was told I would not be ready to go back to work. Drs orders. So I am all yours. Keep me busy and I will keep you happy.
Thanks to all of you for making shop happen.
