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

turning chaos to zen'ity....

have these last few months been crazy? Well.... YES! only with my work situation, my home life is terrrrrrific.

Anyway. I am decided to focus on my career more, what I want from it, to focus on me more what I want from myself.

I want to create and have fun doing it dammit! Here take another bite of that chocoalte bar darlin'... This blog is so darn old it still has my old last name in the url...

To catch you up, I have published a pattern in the march issue of Soft Dolls & Animals! yay! My big angel girl was published in the June issue of Art Doll Quarterly! big YAY!

And I work at a sewing shop. The owner is retiring and moving to Nevada, far away. So I've decided to rent the building, continue the custom sewing and alterations AND move my doll art studio in to boot! My daughter redesigns dresses and makes the most exquisite jewelry. So together we are going to have a unique little boutique inside our sewing shop.

It Is A Dream coming true for me. My very significant other, Loving Husband, Big is so supportive of this, of me. I truly am where I want and need to be. Girls.... Dreams do come true. But definitely not with the wave of a magic wand. It's that four letter word we all know


and I love it... stay tuned my pretties, it is only just begun.

love and kisses
