Saint Patrick's Day Doll




Here is a little Leprechaun just ready to celebrate Spring. She is 11" tall and made from a variety of fabrics. I am trying some new fibers for my dolls hair. I have been buying batting from some wonderful Etsy shops. Most of the batts are wool, silk and Angelina...I love the sparkle.
Let me know what you think!

Mermaids at the Beach





Living in Virginia beach is exciting. It is so different from where I lived in New York. After years of shoveling snow and freezing in Amherst New york I wanted a change. Virginia Beach was that change. It is a clean and beautiful area. And the beach is like magic. The sunsets are so powerful with their rich pinks and purples. A day at the beach is a day full of fun for our family!
I love the summers here, but there is something so peaceful about visiting the beach in the winter when only the locals are making footprints in the cold sand. I like to go there to think and get ideas.
So as a tribute to this beautiful area...here is my latest creation. Made from silk,felt, vintage and new materials. Enjoy!

Family matters and dolls




It has been another busy week. Between having 135 new students, and let me say they are wonderful. I am so lucky to be at the best school in Virginia Beach! My students work hard and put so much effort into their work.

On my off time I am always busy with my little 7 year old Katie. She too is a creative little one. She is making her own Valentine's this weekend using wiggly eyes, glitter and crayons...not to mention feathers, yarn and scraps.

Today I listed a new bunny doll on Etsy... www.mommylion.etsy.com
Take a look!

Valentine's Dolls








Here is another little "Heart Beat" doll. Just listed on my Etsy shop. I have a new hairdo for this doll. I used a beautiful wool angelina blend that I just purchased. I love working with it!
Her face is embroidered and she has a beaded dress. She holds the key to your heart as well as some flowers. Flowers and hearts are used for her little shoes. Enjoy!
