I am inspired by quality, handmade crafts. I think our plastic world is missing something and I found it when I started designing my crochet dolls. As a first-grade teacher, I truly believe in the power of the "faceless doll" -- it allows for creativity in play, helps children explore many emotions and feelings, and avoids the strange proportions and unrealistic expectations that so many children are confused by. Although the faceless doll isn't for everyone, it truly has become one of my favorite elements of the dolls. Over the last decade, I have crafted thousands of handmade dollies for adults, teens, children, and babies. It is important to me that I create diverse dolls because every little one deserves to see a doll that looks like him or her. My dolls are hand washable, durable, and made for years of play.
