Sylvia! Little Mary Jane arrived today and she is absolutely beautiful! The quality of her is out of this world! Her hair is so unbelievably soft when my daughter plays with it I myself can't stop the urge to play with her hair! I also cannot forget to mention how unbelievably kind she is! Sylvia went out of her way to put the doll on reserve for me and when I could not purchase it after the reserve time was up she left her on reserve for longer! Sylvia was very quick to respond and will help out in anyway possible! I am so happy with my purchase and I will more than likely be buying again!

About

My first waldorf dolls were born together with my baby girl!

I fell in love with Waldorf dolls a year before I got pregnant. It was a love at first sight - I adored their handmade charm, their softness, their soul. The simple facial expressions of these dolls looked to me more appealing and animated, full of heart, than those of the plastic dolls...

I soon bought materials to make a doll of my own. But I was so intimidated by the whole doll making process that they stayed in a box for almost a year! I was totally horrified that I could ruin the wonderful smooth doll skin and the curly mohair boucle :-)

Then, I found out that I am pregnant with a precious baby girl! Now was the right time to do it! I was surprised how easy it turned out to be! Yes, it really took a lot of work and attention to details to finish a single doll, but somehow all operations ran smoothly and the result was more than rewarding.

My first doll, Lucky, was sold on my due date! And more luckily indeed, my unborn daughter waited for me to send the doll to her new owner before she appeared!

I continued making dolls ever since - slowly, but yet persistently! It takes craftsmanship and imagination, but above all - it take a lot of love and heart!

And I put all of my heart into my dolls! Well, almost...

I have always loved creating things with my own hands! As I look back to my childhood I remember myself constantly sewing, embroidering, clipping, drawing and gluing something. I preferred making naive and cute gifts for my friends and family instead of buying them – gifts from my heart.
