Last custom doll for Christmas







This is a replica of a lovely person on their wedding day, the dress material should be more blue and less purple, but otherwise I'm really pleased with this - its a dress shape I haven't tried on a doll before but I think it works. This is the last of a lot of custom orders I've had for Christmas, just some drawings to do now!

Una the Lullaby





Lullabies are friends of Rose Lullaby Dolls, they cuddle them when they are sad and tickle them when they are happy.

Puppet doll portraits



This is Julie Storms brother in law, I had fun creating the wispy hair on top of his head!



This is Erica





These are of Tracilee's Dad and his wife - I'm so pleased with her hair!







These are of lonelystranger with a 'geeky' kind of skirt and her best friend who's favourite colour is blue.

There are more to follow - I've been busy!

Ingrid again!




She's a runner up! India Knight, Times columnist and judge gave this lovely quote about her -

Wonderful. I love her elegant, slightly nerdy look – amazing what you can do with a Barbie (gold star for sorting out her crazy figure/features). Again, lovely attention to detail, full of wit and charm – really delightful.


Being a runner up is fab, but being a winner would be even better, and the people's choice prize is open until Thursday - so please click here and heart Ingrid!!!!!!!

Being a working mum...

It's hard! Martha has broken her arm and then caught a stomach bug this week, now I've caught it from her. I've got so many orders to complete by the 10th and an exhibition to prepare for and then more orders to do after that, but I've been out of action for 3 days and am going to have to cut down on sleeping to make my deadlines...
Once you've got a child you just can not rely on definately doing anything anymore - there's so many possible scenarios that will prevent you. Pre child If you were really ill you couldn't work. Post child,  if I am ill, Martha is ill, my husband is ill, or a childminder or childminder's child is ill then my work probably has to stop. She's wonderful but oh my trying to be a working mum is hard.

More custom orders







These two are of Pete Seeger and a man who's written a book on him - bought for the author by his wife to say well done on getting published.

Wonderful feedback

I just love getting feedback when customers receive their puppet dolls, I get real 'job satisfaction' from knowing that people love what I make for them.
The two little Scottish girls who I blogged about a week ago have arrived at their new home and their owner left me the most wonderful message, the best quote from it is "Robyn is clearly an artist working with mysterious magic". What a brilliant quote! hurrah for lovely customers.
