My family and I have had challenges and sorrows beginning with my oldest daughter losing her husband three years ago . I convinced her to come live with me. It has taken time to put her life back together and she is now in the process of moving into her own home next door to me .
Last year I lost my middle daughter to cancer and that rocked my world. It seems to be the wrong order when a child passes on before the parent. One month after losing Coby I lost my beloved Doberman, Vokie. He was three days short of 13 years of age and had been my constant companion since he was six weeks old.
While we never get over the death of a family member or of a much loved pet, we learn to live with the loss and look ahead to getting life back on an even keel. And finally we are all getting back on track.
I have missed making Indian dolls . Linda will be moving her furniture out of my workshop soon and I will again have a work place free of cats, and dogs where I can make Indian dolls to my hearts content.
It is great to have a place where I can work with polymer clay and not have to worry about getting cat hair all over it and I can walk away from the beadwork and just leave it where it is without having to gather everything up and hide it from the cats.
For a long time I have been wanting to make a young Indian man leaning against a tree and playing a flute while his lady love listens from the other side of the tree...another thing I want to make is a life size baby in a cradleboard, and the list goes on and on.
I'm looking forward to getting back into doll making full time. I would like to hear from you if there is anything in particular that you would like to see on this Indian doll website.
