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

September already and I have 2 weeks to get more creations born out of the studio in time for the trip to the gallery! So many steps go into making a soft sculpture. First to think/dream it up..Design on paper..choose color scheme and fabrics..trace sew cut and trim the fabrics..before turning pieces right side out the seams need to snipped so that the seams are smooth when stuffing them later.. Some of the tiny curves in a seam need a little of glue to prevent the fabric from tearing.. To be continued... #mycreativebiz #paulasdollhouse#artdoll
