New Santa for the ADO monthly challenge


This month our challenge on Art Dolls Only was to make a doll using something you have never used before. I had never used double sided interfacing. So I used it to make Santa's cone body. I also had never used this particular air dry clay so thought I would try it out too. I liked it! He is available on my Etsy site if anyone is interested.

New Art Doll Witch


I finally finished the doll I have been working on late but better late than never. At least with me it is. She's available on Etsy. Since I am an X hairstylist I'm having so much fun using fibers for hair.

New Primitive Art Doll

Meet Maid Marian my newest makedo art doll. She's 12 inches tall dressed in a vintage gown of floral velvet. I have been loving working with fibers so much lately that I had to use more for her hair. In the back she wears a bun! It was a seperate piece I made and added to her.

Maid Marian also wears a amethyst pendant that belonged to my mom. She is mounted on a dowel and wooden stand. I made her entirely by hand without the use of a sewing machine. She's available on Etsy .

Wild Thing I think I love you


Six of us worked on this doll and sent it all over the world almost...Paula Nerhus, Nancy Perrenec, Abi Monroe, Cindee Moyer, myself and Sally Hutson! Wild Thing made it into this January's Doll Collectors Magazine along with three of our other dolls we did! I am so proud to have worked with these wonderful art doll artists!
