Sweet Hearts

29 Sep 2012

A long time ago in cyber years, back early in 2007 I met a blogger who became a friend though we have never met and have had long periods when we haven't even chatted, but we always know the other is there with us in spirit.

My dear Jewels showed on her blog a wondrous world of sunshine and snow and children big and small and food shared and memories made. 
Towards the end of 2007 I made some dolls that I called Sweet Heart dolls, inspired by the wonderful clothes that Jewel's little ones wore at the time. 
My take on them was simple and sweet and I sold many through Etsy, through custom orders, through local shops and markets.
 That Christmas of 2007 was the year my online business really took off and I feel I owe it in part to the way my friend made me aware of how much I love the wide eyed wonder years of a child's life, those years of pure childhood joy when they revel in their independence, no longer toddlers and not yet pre teens. 
My Sweet Heart dolls tapped into my memories of those golden sunshine years.

It's time now, I feel in my heart, to revisit the simplicity and beauty of those dolls.
Dolls inspired by those Sweet Hearts, by the clothes of the Eyes of Wonder crew and by my own memories and feelings for the childhood years of my children and me.

I hope you will enjoy seeing them come to life.

  1. I love you, Jenny. I've loved you from the first moments I was blessed to know you, and have always been so thankful that you also loved me, and have continued to love me through the quiet times (that only God well-understands, and I couldn't entirely say}. We were meant to be, sweet friend, and I'm so glad we still are. I love seeing life through *your* eyes, beautiful you. God willing, we'll one day meet, nose-to-nose, hug-to-hug. Can't wait. 'Til then, I love that you're here~~don't go anywhere. Precious babies~~all of them, you gifted girlie, you. xo

    P.S. are you going to host a give-away, so that I have a chance {on my meager budget} of getting one? Just say yes, okay? ;o)another x and o ;o)

  2. Oh they will be gorgeous dolls Jenny. I can't wait to see them.
    Jewels, I miss your blog of loveliness, caring, compassion and simplicity.

    cheers Kate

  3. I still read your blog but so rarely comment on any blogs these days.

    I smile just seeing pictures of the dolls your creativity brings alive.

    When my son got married in May, I transformed his room into a sewing-crafting-blogging room. I'm hoping to make cute stuff again and YOU are my inspiration. Although they will only be for my grandchildren. :)

    I, too, love Jewels and her family. :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to chat. I don't always have time to reply but I do read every message you leave.
