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.

Giveaway Coming!

I am busily preparing my most exciting CONTEST yet...

***Here's a sneak peek of the GRAND PRIZE, still in process, but she is a special little girl who will literally LIGHT up your life! Her name is Lux, and she loves candles, the spa, and immersing herself in "lux"ury...
 ***Above you can see a sneak peek of SECOND PRIZE, a collection of some snacks and treats hand made of clay for your dolls to enjoy at their next tea party or grand adventure! (There are MANY MORE treats than these three...these are just a sampling of the array we are preparing.)

...and just because I cannot resist, here is an Asian little boy named "Jack", who loves all things Skellington. He is my RTG (ready to go) doll that is in progress as well at this very moment.

Stay tuned!
