Welcome to Woolcreations!
Living in Europe I gained insight into
Waldorf education, where I learned doll making and the art of felting.
Even though I was raised learning to knit, crochet and sew, I did not
fall in love with creating felted art and dolls until I wanted to make
beautiful creations for my children. Over twenty years ago, I made my
first Waldorf style doll when my first daughter was born.
As a child I
loved playing with dolls and really enjoyed this new type of doll, one
that I would create. Crafts remained a large part of our lives, as our
family moved to the United States and I started teaching at a Waldorf
school. In my course, I taught doll making and provided doll-making
workshops for adults. As a result of this exposure, I was introduced to
the art of felting and I fell in love with creating wonderful art with
wool. A little over a year ago, I decided to create Woolcreations so
that many of you can enjoy my art and that your children can experience
the wonderful feeling and warmth of my designs and dolls.
Woolcrreations is a big part of my life; it is something I can share
with children and adults worldwide. My customers are parents, children
and even collectors!
I pour my heart, imagination, skill and time into
every Woolcreation. They are all one-of-a-kind and all are hand made.
Everything I make comes with it's own personality and are inspired by
what experience in life.
I do take customer orders, even though this
limit's my creativity to a certain degree. With any custom order, for
example a bunny rabbit might not look like the bunny you imagined,
since my ideas or experiences will shape the creation process. I will
always try my best to make what you want, but there are no promises as
everyone's ideas are unique. If you are
not satisfied with the completed custom work, you will have the option
to return the work and have your money refunded, since I want you to be
completely satisfied with the Woolcreations custom order.
I have learned, after making a whole bunch of custom orders, that I really enjoy making them. They have not been limiting to my creativity at all, maybe even the opposite. I have so much enjoyed understanding my customer's needs and feel great when I was able to deliver beyond what they have imagined.
contact me if you have any questions about WoolCreations, I love to
hear what you think. You can even ask me for help, if you are working
on your own creation, I am happy to help if I can. Have a great day and
I hope you enjoy your visit,
