"Me" Dolls

My daughter and I are trying something new. We are making dolls that reflect ourselves and our interests. The idea was inspired by the beautiful spirit dolls made by blogger and author Silver Ravenwolf. We were drawn by their colourful and whimsical qualities and decided to make our own but with our unique interpretation.

This also gives me an opportunity to explore other doll making techniques. I haven't abandoned my fairies at all but am in constant pursuit of improving them.

The best part, though, is sharing a special activity with my daughter. I'll update occasionally with our progress. It's a project we'll take our time doing, only adding to the doll when we find something meaningful. I'm really looking forward to it. Wish us luck. :-)


  1. It sounds like a lovely project:)

  2. I like the sound of that project and you get more daughter time too. Good luck!

    1. Thanks. We're very excited about it and already making good progress. :)
