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.

Custom Vampire Cupcake Doll

Meet a very unique little gal who loves cutesy scary things...a fun fusion of lots of pink with monster cuteness!

Her dready hot pink hair is made of a gorgeous custom art yarn by Yarn Rescue. Look at that adorable curl, right in the middle of her forehead...when this little gal is good, she is very very good...but when she is bad, she is horrid!
Her friend is a needle felted vampire cupcake made to match the vampire cupcake monster on her outfit...and she wears a Vampire Gingerbread girl bow in her hair who is about to eat a scared little gingerbread cookie...
A definite teen with a 'tude and fashion sense, this little gal is ready to rock the world of her new family!

More to come soon,
Once Upon A Doll
