Welcome to craftswithcare!

Doll-making is my hobby. I sell most of my dolls on eBay and Etsy, except for a few which I give as gifts to family and friends.

I started out making my first cloth doll a few years ago. I have always loved cloth dolls and it had always been my wish to create my own dolls someday.

Nowadays I also make dolls using different media like paper clay, wood, felt etc. Some of my paper clay doll designs are inspired by Izannah Walker and other famous doll makers of yore. Most of my paper clay and wood dolls are one-of-a-kind. For my cloth dolls, I buy small quantities of fabrics at a time, so no two dolls will be alike. I also experiment with various doll-making techniques of my own.

I also enjoy collecting antique dolls, and reading and researching about different kinds of dolls.

The picture above is not a doll from days gone by, but a photo of my mother when she was a baby!

I have been tagged!

I was tagged today by my new friend Kelly of Mystical Entities. Now I have to write 5 things about myself and then go on to tag 5 more unsuspecting bloggers :)!
So here it goes...

1) I love dark chocolate.
2) I love to travel in the US as well as abroad. I have been to Germany, France, Italy, Uk, Canada, India and Nepal.( Lone, our next trip will be to Denmark:)!!)
3) I spoil my golden Roxy by giving her home cooked meals everyday and lots of toys to play with and of course her daily walks in the park. Hubby doesn't get home cooked meals everyday.
4) I am extremely scared of lizards.
5) I love shopping at Bath and Body Works.

Now I am tagging the following people...
1)Lone of dukkeskolen
2)Mae of Tatteredcowwings
3)Jackie of Plain-N- Simple
