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 Alice Cullen, Edward's Vampire Sister from Twlight

 Alice Cullen is petite and pixie-like, with dancer-like grace and hair that is dark, short and fashionably spiky. With a predilection for shopping, make-overs, and throwing parties, as well as her special ability to see the future, Alice soon becomes Bella’s greatest advocate and friend as Edward and Bella begin their relationship. The love of her life is Jasper Hale, and in the movies she wore a special choker necklace with the Cullen family crest as its central piece.
Meet Alice Cullen as a Waldorf-esque doll, a petite 12.5 inches, and fashionable vampire. Alice wears an upcycled outfit made especially for her by Nanerjoy, which features the close up of her beloved, Jasper Hale, on the front and says "Jasper--twilight" on the back. Alice also wears her special necklace from the movies--featuring the Cullen family crest as its center stone. Alice is both fashionable and quirky, so of course she sports a jaunty pair of skull and crossbones high tops.

Alice's short and spiky hair is made of 4 hand spun art yarns, with lots of sparkle and pizzaz. One of the yarns is yarn-wrapped wire, enabling her to achieve the unique spiky look that is so characteristically Alice. This wired art yarn is movable and posable, but means that Alice is only appropriate for older children (who play gently and know they could get poked ) or adult collectors. But really, aren't teenage vampire novels really for teens and adults anyway? 
 Alice sits and stands unassisted. The different hues of burgundy, black, purple, and black cherry in her hair are gorgeous in the sunshine...they dazzle, in fact.
 See her itty bitty vampire fangs? Alice has decidedly black pixie-like almond eyes, and no blush (vampires are quite pale).
Alice Cullen (the prognosticating Vampire from Twilight) will be available tomorrow (Friday) night in my Etsy shop at 6pm pacific time...here's the link to my shop:
