Welcome to my shop!

Hello there,
My name is Anna and I live in Calgary, AB.

My husband and I live with three little critters. Two old cats (Cat and Jimmy) and a dog named Lily. I am pretty sure that their incredible cuteness, fluffiness and general aura of oxytocin inducing cuddliness is what inspires my work. I believe in cute, lots and lots of pure, unadulterated, unapologetic cute! I love ribbons, lace, thrills, bows, and pink! And now I am getting carried away.

Other than cuteness I also believe in recycling and reclaiming as much as possible. (The critters are reclaimed too!) All the leather I use comes from thrift shop jackets. Some of their styles are questionable, but the leather is still good and is worth saving. I also source some of my fabric the same way. Moreover, many people since have given me their old stashes! Wherever I use reclaimed fabric, I note it as it is sometimes impossible to tell the exact composition/blend of the fabric.

Every doll I make is unique and will never be reproduced exactly. They each have their own character and personality.

I hope you enjoy my work,

Anna and the critters.
