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.

Meet Edward Cullen...a very special custom doll

 You've already met Renesmee and Bella Cullen...
well very soon the family will be reunited forever!
 Edward is a very special custom doll: his hair, made of hand spun art yarns by various artisans, sparkles in the sun like...well, the SUN!
 He wears the Cullen Crest Cuff on his wrist, and an exact copy of the grey pea coat he wore in the first Twilight movie!
 His eyes are liquid amber (you're SAFE--he recently fed) and itty bitty vampire fangs, of course.
 Edward's shoes are contrasting 100% wool felt to match his coat and hair.
 Edward's hair has been made in a VERY unusual fashion...each strand in front painstakingly secured so that it can flip backwards...
Edward is a very special fellow...a deep thinker...lover of music...he's spent much of his time upon this earth developing himself and trying to unravel the meaning of an undead existence...but then he fell in love with Bella, and they conceived Renesmee, and "continued blissfully into this small but perfect piece of our forever."

Edward will be making the journey to join his family in his new home tomorrow!
Blessings to you,
Once Upon A Doll
