One World One Heart

ONE WORLD ONE HEART
An international event for bloggers!

Hello welcome to Sophia-LaLa the home of art dolls made by me - Kailee!
This is Penelope, my door prize who is just itching to fly away. 

 

I met a farmer fell in love and now live on a small sheep farm in country Western Australia. I am a primary school teacher and have found it difficult to find a job in the country; consequently I have a lot of extra time. Earlier in 2010 I found Etsy quite by accident and was blown away by the whole online Art Doll world. I have had a yearning to make dolls for a long time and found my answer. I completed a visual arts degree majoring in textiles before I became a teacher so I have had some experience in making things which has held me in good stead for doll making. Needless to say I have spent vast amounts of time trawling the internet and blogs, ordering books and materials on my lonesome doll quest. I am drawn to the dark and melancholic aesthetic. 
Thankyou so much for stopping by I hope to see lots of your blogs and make many blog friends, be sure to check out the rest of the participants OWOH!
Simply leave one comment on this post to go into the draw to win Penelope. Winner announced on Feb 17!

  150. Hello lovely! I hope you find a position soon, although your doll making looks like a great alternative career. I wanted to be a teacher but got married and had babies young instead. Now we homeschool so I guess I teach after all. I am on the other side of the country. Do you farm for meat or wool? Just wondering as a lot of people enjoy hand spinning and dying their own wool. I am a bit of a fan of wool. :-)
