Big Sister







I was 12 when my baby sister was born. I used to carry her around like a doll baby and spoil her and coddle her. Caring for my little sis was great as long as she was being good. Feeding her was cool but changing diapers was a whole other story.
That's when she became mum's baby again and big sis took a break!

Romey and Riley's Traveling House















Romey and Riley thought they were bored

So while mummy was gardening and papa snored,

They raided the pantry and cleaned out their room;

Grabbed their clock and books and dress up costumes.

Tip toeing quietly they snuck out the side door

Then ran so fast they made their feet sore.

They took papa’s motorcar and disassembled the parts

(these sisters were definitely using their smarts).

They put wheels on their playhouse and an engine inside

And their traveling house was now ready to ride!


I really enjoyed creating this quirky pair of sisters and their off kilter house. I have a little red riding hood, a mermaid, a star rider, and three other art dolls in progress right now so there is plenty to keep me very busy.

Etsy store is up and running...

After working out some minor quirks (I'm a tad of a perfectionist!), my Etsy store is finally open. Here is a sampling of a few 'one of a kind' items in the store right now, with more to follow. I hope to have my larger art dolls available in the store by August 2010.
