Announcement Welcome to MyWillies! I'm a strong believer in the old proverb, "Idle hands are the devil's playground." So with that in mind, I keep my hands busy...always tackling a new craft or project. MyWillies is a conglomeration of those crafts.

Custom made perfectly to what I wanted! It's a duplicate of a custom clay turtle that she had made for me. I'm a new runner and this turtle is my little mascot! Slow but we go!!!!!!
As a young girl, my dad Willie would take me, early Saturday mornings to private watercolor lessons. In the 7th grade I painted this massive, ugly, pink rose in art class, and he took me to the art store to have it professionally framed. My dad was always encouraging me to draw this, or paint that.
In 2010 my dad passed away from metastatic melanoma. While loved ones processed their grief by talking and comforting one another, I withdrew and isolated. Unable to express my sorrow verbally, I found comfort in putting my fingers to work, gathering and sorting my dad's clothing, and eventually created a quilt. Being that my grief was never fully abated, my fingers continued to work, and before I knew it, my house had little cloth critters, and clay critters, and wool critters all over the place!
MyWillies is a shop born from sorrow, and brought about calm. Every creature here is lovingly made, and has been a significant part of my healing process. I hope that what you find in MyWillies makes you smile.
