Visit my official website: Paula's Doll House Hi, I'm Paula McGee, lazy daydreamer, owner & chief dollmaker here at the Doll House. I started designing my own dolls in 1998. I've done all sorts of handicrafts and arts in my time but once I began designing "dolls" I never turned back because any craft or art skill can be used in dollmaking artwork. I've been married to my best friend for 5 years this year and together we have 6 children and 2 grandchildren. My handsome beast is a truck driver and I've just started going with him on the big rig. YES, I make my dolls and write my patterns while ON THE TRUCK... I love traveling. I love God. I love art and doll making. I love teaching what I know and meeting other artists. Love, Paula

April Greetings...

First off, I have exciting news for fans of the Doll House! I was called in for a tv show... yes, I get 5 minutes of fame on the Positively Arkansas show on Little Rock's Channel 11 - Station THV. The show that the faeries and I will appear is airing April 1st at 9:30am... Someone tape it for me!
Next on the list is our awning... remember the heavy snows brought down the purple one; we're not to be purple anymore, the owner is adding a new dark red awning to the "front porch" so now you know what to look for on Commerce Ave for the most fantastical place around...
The doll orders are starting to trickle in and I am grateful. Thank you! And remember if you want a special hand made gift for someone special, contact me and I'm happy to work with you.
I have been in awe of the beautiful gardens already in blossom out and around town. My son and I brought a pot or two of pansies to brighten up the front door of the studio until the awning is replaced, and well of course the pansies will stay far after the awning is up... I'm itching to start gardening but am a bit busy with other things at the moment and I suppose I'll have to keep my green thumb to taking care of the two pots of pansies on the doorway of the studio, lol!
I've taken a new shot of the studio as she looks at the moment... so hopefully you will not get lost looking for the purple awning at the front... Faerie Blessings, Paula

Snow storms and new dollies...

I have a new doll to show you, this is my faerie princess, she is approximately 20 inches tall, but her long flowing dress makes her about 30 inches tall... you may see more about her at my website.

Wow, did we have a blast of cold yesterday! The weather people predicted 2 inches of snow... we endind up with about 12 to 15 inches dumped on us! My little shoppe/studio was overloaded with too much heavey snow and the pretty purple awning came crashing down! Thankfully the windows were still in one piece when all was done.... not so lucky the neighboring shop - the beauty college - had their awning come down and break all but two of the windows there...
no photos of the damage, it was just too sad... hopefully the building owner's insurance will help to replace the awning... keeping my fingers crossed!
