About

An insatiable need to create

Years (and years) ago, I made a few simple ornaments as a kid and my father suggested he sell them in our family's tree nursery during Christmas. I don't even remember what they were, but I'm sure they had pom-poms and googly eyes. Imagine my surprise when they were all gone from the shop not too long after. Who knows, maybe Dad just bought them all himself and never said.... but it really doesn't matter. It was a spark, and that's all I needed.

I'd like to think I've progressed a bit since then. I have a few pom-poms in the drawer, but I'm happy to say there are no googly eyes in sight. With a life-long love of Santa and Christmas traditions, I've never strayed too far from ornaments and holiday dolls. Here you'll find a mixture of my PinFolk clothespin figures and vignettes as well as Sculpted and primitive dolls.

Thanks for stopping by!
