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.

What a pretty fresh start. Clarice

Good Morning Nicol......we have much to look forward this year with many "fresh starts" especially this Inauguration Day.
It is comforting to know you are in your new studio space, gathering,sorting,folding,organizing and most important....creating.
have a wonderful new year ahead.

Hello Nicol~

What a beautiful blog you've created! I came across it when searching tutorials on the making of cones. You show some that you made for a wedding in August of 2007 but I cannot find where you share in the actual making/how to's of the I not clicking on the right button? Would love to try my hand at these for some Valentine gifts. Thank You for any help you can offer!



Ah yes, and no beginnings are perfect without dreams for the future! What a full schedule you have my dear, be sure and make time for yourself in the midst of the whirlwinds!

There is nothing quite like a 'new beginning'.
