I’ve been sick lately which has forced me to slow down on a few time sensitive things such as poster and media, designs, target dates.. it was getting to be a bit much. I guess this cold is somewhat of a double edged sword.
I get a lot of questions about my dolls. I used to be really stand-off-ish with everyone because I really wasn’t confident in my work. Like most artists I know we are our own worst critic but it wasn’t until the last 3 years that I finally let go and embraced what I’ve learned and continue to learn about my craft.
For the next part of my journey I’ve decided to get a little more artsy fartsy. Now this won’t be just a road of making and selling dolls, I’ll be documenting more if my personal journey as an artist. So let’s begin tonight.
It’s 1:43am and I’m waiting for the paint to dry while watching Netflix on my iPad. The house is nice and quiet and there’s only one light coming from my desk lamp. It actually reminds me of my childhood. When I was in either grade 1 or 2, I loved the Disney version of Pinocchio. There was a picture of Geppetto working in his workshop at night looking up at the sky wishing for Pinocchio. Haha I guess it’s eerily very similar. This took s very strange turn. Maybe it’s the paint fumes 🤷🏻♀️
I can’t say how happy I am to finally be able to enjoy my artwork. I love what I do! I’ve been slowly building my doll collection, yes I’m probably going to be one of those women with a bunch of dolls. I did promise myself to not get crazy and go over 10 dolls in the entire house… ok well, I promised my boys.
It’s the beginning of the Christmas season and I can already hear the sound of crunch time. I have a few dolls to make before Christmas and few of my own I want to complete.
A couple of events happened over the last couple months that would’ve left me jaded about 5 years ago, but today is a very different day. I felt validated and self assured that I am on the right path. It’s funny what they say. When you feel adversity or opposition from others, it says a lot more about them than it does about you. I’ve learned that you do choose your future and things may look bleak but it must look that way temporarily in order to achieve what you deserve. 2018 is coming up fast and I am extremely excited! There will be lots of meetings, planning, coordinating, but my goal is worth it!
Let the Christmas songs, sweaters and Santa pictures begin! 🎄
I can’t believe how blessed my life has been lately! It feels like everything I’ve done up to this point has finally come full circle. Through the struggles and disappointments, I’ve definitely learned that those were all life lessons to redirect me back on course to my goals and the positive person I am. My goals are finally in fruition and I’m ecstatic!
It took a few years however they were years well spent in learning about myself while making my business “base” secure. I feel a wave of more fun happening with my loving family and my beautiful friends. I’m completely surrounded by positivity and I can’t help but smile every morning. 😊😁

I've been painting and creating some beautiful baby dolls lately. It takes me about 30 hours to complete one doll but the funny thing is my obsessive compulsive tendencies goes into overtime. I've been painting until the early morning sunrise. When I do take a break I keep staring at my projects thinking what my next move is. My insomnia friend visits me often and painting helps to keep my mind busy.
Last night, I painted for hours listening to some R&B and live streaming on Periscope. I finished the painting so now I have two dolls that need hair. I have a third doll that is ready to be painted. I'm trying to time how long it would take me to make multiple dolls at once. I love a good challenge so why now put myself through one 💁🏻.
After 6 years of practicing my painting skills, I still find myself learning more about the sculptors and doll kits. What started off as a hobby is now a huge part of my life and somewhat of a therapy. I like to think that these dolls that I create can actually help many other people and that's why I love what I do.
I'm going to meet with the societies for mental and emotional health. I will be donating some of my dolls to these causes that I feel so strongly about.
For now I'm gonna keep on painting 😊 🎨
Hope you're enjoying your summer nights, if you're having trouble sleeping feel free to join me and my friends on my late night live streams via Periscope.
