New Dollies

I frequently get requests for small dolls. Perhaps from people populating their dollhouses as that is where dolls belong:)

The problem is I find small dolls to be harder to create than larger dolls. I have the utmost of respect for miniature artists. I honestly don't know how they create such tiny little things with such great precision.

My new dollies are a bit smaller and probably took me twice as long to create:)

I love the smaller dolls, and the little ones hurt my hands too!
But you know they fit in my doll house
your fairy friend

Your right working in a small scale can be a hassle. But sometimes (as in the case of dioramas)working larger can eat up a lot of shelf space.

Your new dolls look very good. I can't detect any difference from your larger pieces. About how tall are these?

Karey I checked out your dollhouse update and WOW, it looks fantastic! I love all the dollies in it.

Brian, these are from 5"-6", usually my dolls are around 12".

Hi boo:)

Petite, pretty, and oh so dainty! Tiny, small, medium, large, every size has a devoted fan.

I think working so small requires slim and nimble fingers. I have monster paws better suited to big and bold, so owning exquisite "littles" made by others solves my "problem" perfectly. Doesn't stop me from exercising my big mitts on teenies, though; trying is where the fun lives!

I can see that you are perfectly adapted to itty-bitties; perhaps practice will make perfect in terms of time, because so far practice has made perfect in terms of beauty and desirability!
