Hand Made Dolls Since 1983

I first began designing and creating soft sculptured dolls after the birth of my third child in 1983. I worked as a stay-home mom, making and selling dolls until 1998. When my kids entered high school, it became necessary for me to take a job outside the home, mainly for insurance benefits and a more reliable salary. For ten years I worked in customer service. I loved working with people but something was missing. So when I lost my job due to Multiple Sclerosis, a friend of mine suggested that I make my dolls again. I thought "you must be kidding. I don't know if I remember how and none of the materials I used in the 80's are still available. " But still....it would be nice to have something to keep me busy. So my original pattern underwent a re-design and I went on a treasure hunt seeking new materials. "Karen's Kids" were re-born!

I love making dolls and put a little bit of my soul into each one. I credit God for giving me the inspiration and ability, and thank Him daily. I pray for my customers, and am sincerely happy to hear their positive feedback. For me, it's not about making money. It's about connecting with people, the sense of accomplishment that comes from the creative process, and above all...about giving glory to God!

God bless you and thanks for stopping by!
