The Birth Of A Doll Shop

I began my shop to give an outlet to my creativity and love of design, decor, fabrics and crafting. It thrills me to know that children are receiving my creations as gifts or special purchases! As a piano teacher of 35 children, mother of 2 girls, and grandmother of 3 boys and 4 girls, I love kids, so visions of their delight as they open and play with their items gives me much pleasure.

The sounds of my mother's sewing machine as she made garments for myself and my 3 sisters were common during my childhood. I am inspired by her eye for fashion, beautiful fabrics and special touches.

I became interested in sewing, knitting, crochet, drawing and crafting as a child I went on to create garments, intricate Halloween costumes, doll clothes, lap blankets, a few quilts and curtains, as well as recovering dining room chairs and a piano bench for myself, my family, and my home.

I was an enthusiastic art and home economics student in the public school as a child. In college, I took drawing and stained glass classes. As an adult, I have taken photography classes, learning to develop film, a wood working class, a quilting class and some card making classes. I enjoy learning new things!

I learned floral design through books and YouTube, having fun creating fresh and silk arrangements, finally taking a private session with a floral designer before creating most of the fresh flower arrangements, bouquets, corsages, and boutinnears for my daughter's country wedding on horseback. The basement was filled with buckets of flowers for a few days! I also made 6 dresses and 6 leather-look vests for the wedding party, and hand crafted the save the dates. If I have the time and inspiration, I design a floral arrangement for my student piano recitals.

I had fun selling crafts at a Christmas's bazaar in 2014, but didn't like all the tagging and hauling, so my etsy shop was born! Thank you for visiting!

    I began sewing and crafting as a child. In 2013, I made all the garments and fresh flower arrangements for my daughter's country wedding. In 2015 I became fascinated with polymer clay and the techniques used to make things look realistic.

    Rachel is my youngest daughter, who is now a wife and mother. She has always been creative and artistic since she was a very young child. She enjoys creating with polymer clay, often coming up with her own ideas.

Shop policies

Last updated on October 5, 2017
Welcome to my shop where you will find ready to ship items and custom work for 18" dolls such as American Girl and My Generation. I have many more ideas than time to craft them, so if you would like something you don't see, covo me and I will let you know if I can fill your order. I do have some patterns for baby doll and other 15" dolls like Bitty Baby and some cute prints for blankets for these dolls, so these requests are welcome as well! Check back often for new items!

My home studio is smoke free. I search for appealing, high-quality fabrics for my cloth items. Seams are finished with a surged edge. All hand stitching is done with 2 strands of thread and the sturdy ladder stitch used by quilters and decorators for durability as well as a beautiful finish. Polymer clay food items are texturized when appropriate and dusted with chalk pastels to give them a realistic, baked look. Beverages are made with resin, and acrylic paint, chalk pastels, or food coloring is added for color. Painted objects are sanded and finished with 2 coats of sealer.

Thank you for visiting my shop!
