August 29 9am-1pm, Portneuf Valley Farmers Market, Old Town Pocatello, Idaho

The outdoor markets are open with some restrictions. I'm attending markets and I'm afraid that means that my shop listings are not always up to date. Not to worry -- message me and I'll send you pics of my current inventory for your selection. I also do custom orders of hair color, fabric choices, and skin color for the styles that I make.

The power of playtime

The work of early childhood is to play. Pretend play with toys facilitates children's language development, self-regulation, and emotional development. Play that uses our imaginations teaches us delayed gratification and, when shared, how to work together in community and be friends. We grow up using all of these skills over and over and over again to the ends of our lives.

Simply put, imaginative, non-structured play is essential to healthy human development.

And so I make dolls. Simple, washable dolls that can be childhood friends and snuggle companions. Dolls that can be cared for. Dolls that spark imaginative playtime during the day and provide comfort in the night.

    Career change in middle-age -- such a common theme these days! I learned how to sew quite late in life, and quickly grew to love the creative expression and usefulness of the craft. It's a joy to create these dolls and accessories for you!
