New Year, New Doll

Wow!  January completely slipped away and my resolution to blog weekly slipped away too.  Amid the hustle and bustle of Christmas Mr. D had the time to start on some of those projects around the homestead.  As is always the case, one project led to another and before I knew it we were completely remodeling his home office.  When I say "remodel" I mean tear out built-ins, rip out carpet (which exposed a huge crack in the foundation which led to having the concrete grinder guy in, etc.), paint, molding, base boards, wood floor, lighting....the works!  Add to that, we tore out the driveway and put in a paver drive and walk at the same time.  Finally, new roof and exterior painting of the whole house!  No wonder January got away from me!

In the middle of all that, however, I was able to complete "Spencer"!  Spencer is a futuristic Engineer.  He is approximately 16" tall.  He has large hand-blown German glass eyes.  While working on his head and imagining what he might become, I was inspired by the dolls of Paula Nerhus and thought I'd try piecing together his costume in her style.  I have so much fun learning from other doll artists!   I hope you like him.


  1. He is fabulous! So glad to see you back, I've missed seeing your creations lately!

  2. Thank you Shauna. I'm working on a new original doll right now. Hoping to have him ready for his debute this weekend. Keeping my fingers crossed!
