My Photo

about me

  • I am a dollmaker. I love antique fabrics and hoard them. I collect old china doll heads without bodies and leather doll bodies without heads and never put them together. I have stacks of old photos of people I don't know. I have two smart and funny kids who complain that I hang plates on the wall instead of pictures. I have a great husband who travels with me and who I used to garden with but now don't because all I do is make dolls. Luckily he still likes me. So all in all somewhat normal ...depending , of course, on who you ask.

Miss Maddie's

I met Laurie once years ago at a show she had just before Thanksgiving in Ohio. Her bears and bunnies were delightful then. I see she hasn't lost that magic! Thanks for sharing Nicol.

Sweet Remembrance

What a wonderfully magical place!
Must have been fun...


What a gift to have Lori Ann as a friend that gets the real YOU!! Also someone on that same path. Her studio is fabulous. That pin cushion is inspiring me. Now I will go pay her a visit.

The magic sparks in the room must have been flying with the both of you there! :0)

Glad you were able to catch up and feel comfortable with a true friend.
oooohhhh and a peek through the studio. You must have had to pinch yourself to make sure you weren't dreaming!

Thanks for sharing your visit!



your visit with Lori Ann looks magical...
