"I just love dolls, always have and always will! When I was a girl, my twin sister and I had many hours of play, setting up our paper dolls in the living room or turning the whole living room and the whole house into a doll hospital for our dolls. We used Mama's tea cart for our gurney. Our dentist gave us a bunch of little tiny bottles to use.My grandma made me rag dolls My aunt made me some doll clotheseven a dutch girl doll costume for a school project.. My uncle made cradles. My mom, dad and uncle, a play house. Play was a family affair. Nothing elaborate, just simple.We didn't have a play room or a family room, but our parents loved our imaginative play so we were able to just spread out everywhere. I treasure that time of play with my sister and best friends and all our dolls."
"When my own children were born, both of them had lots of fun with dolls. My son was first, and of
course, he didn't call them dolls, but ACTION FIGURES. I found some old wooden cabbage crates and made him a hide-out for his action figures. We had fun improvising items for his “men”. When he was older and my daughter was born, he made her a really great wooden Barbie house. I made some fabric and cardboard furniture and clothes. Then there was Cabbage Patch. One of my church friends made gorgeous creations for Cabbage Patch dolls. I made a mental note that one day, when I had time, I wanted to have a hand made doll clothes shop too."
imaginative play). My other dream in my heart was to be able to share Jesus' blessings to children and I believe, that's how God works. Through the seasons of your life, He can weave the fibers of your life's tapestry into His Purpose. I wanted to help children at my church go to Christian summer camp and I loved making doll clothes so BeachBabyDoll was born. What I enjoyed most was making simple patterns for play dolls and fashion dolls too."
