Welcome! Sit down, peruse these pages, and indulge in the stories my dolls arouse within your imagination...

Once Upon A Doll began with my own love of dolls, especially hand made. My kids and I collect, play with, and love our dolls, and eventually I began to make dolls of my own. Although my dolls are based upon the principles of Waldorf doll making--natural and sustainably harvested materials (like wool stuffing and cotton interlock), hand spun and dyed wool yarns for hair, hand made doll clothes, 100% wool felt for shoes--my dolls cannot be called strictly Waldorf (more Waldorf-esque), as they have definite personalities, larger & more expressive eyes, and playful mouths. Once Upon A Doll features enchanted dolls made in the Waldorf tradition with a storybook theme for that special child in your life or the discriminating collector of handmade dolls.

Little Boo and her pet yeti, Herbert

I'm actually working on three somewhat October themed dolls right now, one of which I was able to finish tonight...meet "BOO", and her little yeti friend, Herbert.

She was inspired by my daughter, who proclaimed that she LOVES monsters and Halloween, but that monsters DON'T have to be "scary"!
Boo wears a lovely dress made of imported Japanese Kawaii fabric called "Thriller Restaurant" featuring an array of cute little monsters...
Her hand spun art yarn hair was especially spun JUST for her, to match her gorgeous dress!
She has a little monster pet yeti named "Herbert"--he has two large fangs, but he doesn't bite!
They really are the BEST of friends...
Boo and Herbert were just listed in my etsy shop, still plenty of time for Halloween delivery for a very special child's gift.
Two more October dolls coming...stay tuned!
