She also made a whole Alice In Wonderland set for my girls who recently had an Mad Tea Party (see Themed Parties Section in this blog).
I CAN NOT believe the detail on these adorable dolls. My girls just love them and the quality is PERFECT! We have a specialty toy store here were we live and they only sell non mainstream or mass produced toys. I know they would LOVE to carry her dolls! Her creations are perfect for a Christmas gift or stocking stuffer. I recently noticed she made a whole Strawberry Shortcake set for someone with all the characters. I think my next order will be Annie or Wizard of Oz since my girls love those movies. I asked how she learned to make her adorable dolls and she responded, "Since I can remember I have always had an eye for crafty creations. I enjoyed art and really enjoyed everything about making projects. I believe that being artsy is something that is inspired not learned." Amen to that!
Elizabeth says she started to make these crafts just last year for something that both her and her daughter could share. She says her little girl and her nephews inspire the dolls she makes. She says, "I enjoy caring for children and creating crafts that remind me of a child's imagination."Speaking of inspiration and since I am a musician, I asked if she had any groups or songs that inspired her when creating? "I enjoy listening to my favorite 80's band The Cure, Enya, any score from Tim Burton films." She sounds like a girl after my own heart! It is all about the 80s and The Cure is still one of my favs!
Elizabeth is a stay at home mom. She says she is a mom to a "wonderful red headed girl and a wife. I enjoy that I get to share my creativity with my daughter and hope that she develops a knack for being crafty as well."
I asked her how she juggles mommyhood and her shop and her life: " I am fortunate enough to have a husband who lets me stay home and be a mother and a crafter. It can sometimes be tough to balance the two. As long as I involve my daughter in what I do with my crafts, I get to experiance the best of both without alot of stress.
As for her shop....I asked her what is new that may be coming into her whimsical shop. She said:
"I would like to expand creation of new charaters, but still keep my own touch on anything that I create. I would like to create more childrens charaters, like Spiderman, Strawberry Shortcake, etc."
Elizabeth enjoys being on Etsy because she gets "the chance to reach out to millions of people worldwide with my crafts is a great opportunity that I get to have being on Etsy."
If you go to Elizabeth's shop you will see her profile picture. She has striking pink hair. I think it is just fab, but I had to ask her about it. I asked her what made her want to color her hair pink? She replied, "Pink is such a fun girly color. I love that I have the opportunity to color my hair any way I want it. Sometimes its fun not only to create art but also to be art. My daughter and her friends think it looks cool and I absolutely love it."
Elizabeth is going to giveaway these two beautiful mermaid dolls. My daughter have two of her mermaid dolls and love them! You or your lil ones are sure to love them too.
I like Elizabeth's unique and artistic nature, so I thought I would do this giveaway different than all of the other ones.
