Pinspirations

    The time has come for my selection of favourite pins on Pinterest. There's all kinds of candy from Angelina Jolie, to rockabilly, creative photography, and even the edible kind.

My Work Is Done

    May I present to you, one finished Link doll, and one very happy kid. The awesome thing about this doll is that it has an armature skeleton, which means bendy body parts.

Head over Heels

    This morning I cut out pattern pieces, sewed, stuffed and attached the head onto the Link doll. You will notice my daughter's Link drawing. She's been drawing many Links lately.

Making the Link

    Work continues on this little Legend of Zelda: Link doll. Yesterday I sculpted the limbs and boots. Today was all about making the pants and tunic.

    The way I am sculpting this felt doll I am reminded of an animated film from my childhood - Gulliver's Travels. In the film these tiny people mend Gulliver's [The Giant] clothes and make him a new tunic by sewing the outfit onto his body. Of course, for these little people, levers, pulleys, bows and arrows were required to make this happen.

Little Link

    My littlest  has put in a request for a large fluffy sloth and a miniature Legend of Zelda: Link doll. I have chosen to take on the smaller of the two options. But make no mistake, when it comes to doll making, 'smaller' doesn't necessarily mean 'easier'.

    I have begun the doll with armature and wrapping. So right now the doll looks like a headless Egyptian mummy. From little things...

Buy "Dance Suit"


    Surely you have felt like dancing on your way to work. If only life was a dance movie.

    I have a new piece of merchandise in my Red Bubble store. Dance is in my blood…

New Venture

    I am pleased to announce a new opportunity on my path has opened up. I have a stockist for a selection of my hand crafted dolls. You can scream with delight right along with me now.

    The stockist sells beautiful,sweet hand crafted, locally designed wares. Plus it doubles as a coffee shop. Which makes complete sense since crafters tend to be caffeine fiends. 

    Here's everything else you need to know about the stockist:

Shop 7 16-18 Station Road
Cheltenham, Victoria, Australia

    Shout out to Sue B for this amazing opportunity - Thank you!

    Also just want to say - Pat Benatar rocks! Today I bought her vinyl for "Love is a Battlefield". Love this song.
