The new girls in town….

I’ve been working on more Santos dolls between swearing at my chair.  I am really getting into the process of creating them and then giving them their own history. Sometimes I almost think my dolls are more like art dolls. They take on a personality of their own after a while. 
I have to admit to sneaking and peeking over at the site Santos cage Dolls . The dolls they have are so gorgeous and they have these little crowns I keep thinking about buying to put on mine. it’s a pretty cool site.
But I still have to admit. I love sculpting my dolls and creating them; but they still creep me out a  tiny bit.
I swear their little eyes follow me around the room.
I know, I have issues. But, just keepin’ it real.
Any way….  :) meet…
   Bird Molly. She’s a kind soul, with a heart that wants to fly. 
 Helene. You can depend on her for strength and guidance.
 And  The Mother. Everything about her encompasses love.
In her little nest is  a little antique frozen charlotte I found on Etsy. These are the tiniest little dolls I have ever seen. They come all the way from Germany over 100 years ago and are actually discards from an old factory, still being unearthed.
I’ll have these listed in my Etsy store for my Spring collection with some others I am working on. I’ll also have them for The Nada Event in May. If you get a chance, stop on over there. Anne Marie wrote the nicest post about me today. You can also see some of the other awesome dealers that are going to be there along with Fifi signing her book. There are so many people coming from out of town, it’s exciting!

    Why American men should boycott American women

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

  22. These santos are beautiful. As a little girl growing up Catholic in Northern New Mexico, I remember loving these statues and also how I could freak myself out by thinking they were watching me! There are a lot of Santeros who show their work at the Spanish Market every year in Santa Fe, should you ever be incclined to go. Thanks for sharing your work!
