This blog is a window seat peek into the things that bring me joy. I desire to encourage, educate and edify all those who stop by.

Pearl of Great Price
My first dotee inspired doll
So I keep seeing these dotee dolls. They are supposed to only be swapped or given away, but it seems like I have seen them for sale before.
What is a dotee doll?
A dotee is a type of small handmade fabric doll ranging in size from 3-7 inches. They have a face, tail and hanger with no arms or legs. The tail and body of the doll may be decorated with various items like ribbons and beads. Dotee dolls were originally created by Dorothy Christian. I have clicked on so many links to her blog only to see a bunch of polka dot items and NOTHING about the dolls. So instead of me posting the useless link and cause you the same frustration...just remember Google is your friend. lol
Here's my take on the craft.
beads for hanger and dangles felt bic mark it pens embroidery floss button needle and thread poly fill
I like to think of my dangles as legs.
My mom says that they look like the little rag dolls that she and her friends made as kids. I guess the old stuff really does become the new stuff (LOL)
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you come back soon.
My name is Tina. I am a teacher, writer, dramatist, storyteller and crafter. Although, I studied computer science in college, I soon discovered that I was better at being creative than I was at being technical.
In 1997 I started the PARABLES Drama Ministry. Through the PARABLES I have been able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through dramatic expression. I have had the opportunity to perform and direct in many venues; including street theater.
I like to cook, craft, sew and make jewelry. Hence, God is prompting me to include these interests as He is birthing PARABLES Productions and Events; an education company where we teach by using dramatic expression, stories and interactive instruction. Teaching creative subjects allows me to show others how to collaborate, communicate, create and exude confidence. In addition to theater related activities; there is now a venue to teach creative subjects like sewing, cooking and crafting. I host events where I simply teach lessons and skills that I have learned over the years; hence these events are called "Pass-it-on Parties." Now that's passion turned profession!
