Anything is Everything

How you do anything is how you do everything. Really stuck a cord with me! Since last August of 2014 I have lost 25 lbs. It is a slow downward battle but I feel so much better than I did a year ago. Last winter I back tracked 10 lbs (no exercise and too much sugar). I lost that 10 lbs and another 5 lbs so far this month. I see the error of my habits. For the first time ever I am seeing that giving up sugary food is a must do or die type of situation. So hard to admit but hey it is the truth. anything is everything! Even in my dollmaking. I strive to do my best so why shouldn't I have the best "health" possible! When I feel better I think more clearly and my creative energy flow is improved. When I eat too much sugar all my time is consumed with eating not making art. There is a connection between how I treat my body and how I creat dolls.

This is one of my latest cloth dolls dressed in all vintage cottons.


  1. I really like the personal details you provide to your dolls. Your dolls are authentic and look as though they tell a historical story. Fantastic Work!

  2. Thank you for sharing your personal story. I'm a SLE lupus survivor the disease attacked my central nervous system, kidney, and heart. Later I was diagnosed with Discoid lupus which is of the skin. I established SHE'S Empowered (Sisters Helping Encourage Sisters) where we host a Women's Empowerment Conference Butterfly Bash annually to help women prosper in mind, body and spirit and increase lupus awareness.

    It was due to my personal struggles with lupus and how it had a negative impact on my life that I turned to art and later established the Detroit Doll Show to show every Woman and Child that they are Beautiful. Our motto is "Love the Skin You're In!"

    Your doll work is unique and your attention to detail is magnificent. I look forward to the opportunity to see your work upclose and personal. Wishing you continued success on your good Health and Creative Journey.

  3. Loosing weight is so hard to do. I have diabetes and still I don't do right as I should. I admire your commitment to becoming more heathly and having a more productive life. Your dolls are wonderful and when we feel better it can only help us to be happier and more creative.
