A Fellow MDF Member will be spotlighted in a future issue of Doll Crafter Magazine. Congratulations Karen for this great honor!
We thought it would be nice if we did a spotlight ourselves on Karen and here is a little information Karen wrote about herself for us to spotlight here:
I've been collecting dolls all my life, literally beginning
at birth when I was given my very first doll.....a Raggedy
Ann that I still have to this day.
I began making soft-sculpture dolls about 20 years ago;
they were similar to the Cabbage Patch Kids that were
so popular back then. I have painted in oils since I was
6 years old, and I have a love of quilting that goes back
to my teen years. I guess I've always been kind of "crafty!"
It was thanks to my friend Karin that I discovered reborn dolls.
She had bought one on Ebay just over a year ago and when
she showed me his picture I couldn't get over how REAL he
looked. Naturally, Karin and I decided we had to try and make
some of these darling babies ourselves, so we did!
Karin and I made reborns for each other and traded....then we
decided to make them and see if we could sell them.
I made a reborn, took him to the preschool where I teach,
and began taking orders that very day. Now here I am, just
14 months later and I am working on my 68th doll!
Making dolls combines my love of painting and art with my love
of babies and children. I always say it's a match made in
Below are just a few pictures of some of Karen's Reborn's:
