Always creating!

I receive such joy from designing and creating things! From food in the kitchen to crafting and sewing -I have a need to express myself through a variety of modes. Never happy until something is perfect, I'm always looking for ways to improve and love trying new techniques!

Besides the treasures I create, I have a passion for all things vintage. I've recently created a second shop ~Purely Splendid Again~ for some wonderful finds that I hope you'll enjoy!

My customers and potential customers are #1 to me! I value every comment, interaction and transaction and always treat you how I'd like to be treated as a customer- like a VIP!

So come along for the next part of the journey and enjoy your purchase. I hope you'll agree with me that it is ~Purely Splendid~

Additional policies and FAQs
Purely Splendid doll items are created with the adult collector in mind. Adult supervision is required if used by children. Do not put items in mouth or ingest. Products that contain small parts or magnets may pose a choking hazard and should not be used by children under 14.

Custom Order? --I enjoy designing, creating new things and love a challenge. I work with many types of materials, not just fabric and jewelry, so if you would like something special, creative or unique made, just ask!

Custom Orders do require full payment up front in order for me to begin work and all fees are non-refundable. While I do all kinds of custom work - I design/create jewelry and accessories for a variety of sized dolls but clothes and tights only for the 18" American Girl Doll® or 14" Wellie Wisher® Dolls.

Any Custom Order that you need without a 14 days advance notice will be considered a Rush Custom Order and MAY have an additional fee ranging from $10 - $25 depending upon my work load. HOWEVER any fees will be discussed up front so you know- please contact me and let's discuss......I'm easy to work with!

To ensure you have your custom order in hand by December 24th, please place your order no later than November 4, 2022 otherwise I can not guarantee that you will have it in time for the holidays. Thank You!!

Sizing details

My doll clothes, jewelry and accessories are made specifically to fit the 18" American Girl Dolls® perfectly and are created with the adult collector in mind! Contact me for custom fitting for other sized dolls....

***Not all 18" dolls are sized the same. Necks, ankles, feet, waists, chests can be slightly larger/smaller which makes a huge difference in fit! Please contact me with your dolls measurements BEFORE ordering to ensure my item will fit. Otherwise, if it is possible, I'm happy to create something special just for your doll!
