Sometimes I feel as if I haven't accomplished much. I felt that way this week, but then when I discussed my week with a few friends, I've realized I have had an incredibly busy week at work. I cannot concentrate in anything for long periods of time, which is why I tend to act like a butterfly: I start something in the studio, then I remember I haven't had any... Continue reading

Yarn lust..I am so guilty. Wouldn't you be? So I bought a couple of hanks, and I cannot wait until the kids go to sleep so I can knit. I'll post some pics of the process. Continue reading

If she could, she would do absolutely everything with her ballet outfit. That is how much she loves it. What more does a girl need? But she allowed me to make her a lovely polka dot skirt, as long as it swirl well. She tested it, on the bed, when I wasn't looking. She said she would sit still for ONE pic. And sit she did. for one pic. And... Continue reading

It has been too long since I have had a Doll Giveaway. I promised one ages ago, and life got in the way, as life tends to do. The doll was ready, but when I say 'ready,' it means there was a doll. She did not have hair, she did not have clothes, or shoes, or rosey cheeks. And this little doll sat there, watching other dolls get groomed and... Continue reading

Today, everything that c o u l d go wrong, did go wrong. Pictures failed to upload, computers froze, heads ached, fingers were hurt, and my little girl roller bladed herself straight into a rought iron pole, just because she could. There was blood, there were tears, there were screams, and one of us, from the opposite sex,{ but I am not pointing any fingers or naming any names,} almost... Continue reading

These days I have to force myself to call it a night. I just don't have enough hours in the day to complete all the exciting new things I want to make. My head weighs a ton, if not more. Still, as a mom and a wife, I know I cannot wiggle my way out of all of my responsbilities, and so I yank myself out of the doll making... Continue reading

The studio is in shambles, and I'm talking real, horrible mess here. I have doll limbs scattered all over the place, to the point where Yulka gets frusrated. Patterns are piled up on the tables...In the midst of all the usual work, I thought I'd fine tune my patterns, and - (are you sitted?) COLOR CODE the new patterns, so it's easier to work. Ahhhh, what was I thinking. New... Continue reading

Waldorf Doll Miss Rosie, with her pink hair and pink attire My Mother-in-Law says I perform best under pressure. She is probably right. We're leaving for our Summer Vacation, tomorrow, yet I decided today was a perfectly perfect day to finish up, take photos and prepare for the annual Doll Upload. Actually, it was supposed to be a qurterly upload, but all these custom dolls took a lot of my... Continue reading

@Jenny, Oddly, I was thinking of you when I wrote this post. :)

Last night, while I efficiently and creatively spent my time browsing Pinterest, my mind somehow wandered, and I began thinking about creativity and what it means to me. I love staying up when everyone else is asleep. At night the house is very quiet, and no one needs anything from me, and I am at last able to think coherent thoughts, without those likeable urgent interruptions. (*"Juice, mom." Mom, can...

It has been busy here. Customs made their way across the world, to exciting places like Japan, Singapore, France, USA and New Zealand, and my mind is going absolutely wild with ideas for new dolls and doll clothes. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, so to speak, the two short people we call 'the kids,' need a lot of attention. I am so lucky I married Mr. Right... without him, I'd... Continue reading

I want to make a little album of past dolls. I was thinking of making different collages for each color..blue, pink, white, etc. Trouble is, it is taking forever to choose pics, edit them, arrange them.. My photo editing skills are so poor. I know I'm not supposed to be good at everything, (hmmm) but I get quite frustrated when ater two hours of work I'm left with crooked images... Continue reading

The Sun is out! Funny thing, Time. Lately, it feels like it tends to drip through my fingers, the same way money does. (at least that's what Mr. Louie says.) Either way, it feels like I'm racing, breathless, and I don't know where the finish line is. Life revolvs around the kids, work and pinterest. Don't get me started on that, though. It is pure evil. Pinterest, that is. But... Continue reading
