Not everyone knows the inspiration for the Dearie Digis....Here are some pics of the dolls that Kip and I made. He did all of the woodworking. One time he made me a tiny little wood whistle for a special order I had for a gym teacher. He would cut me out like 100 shoes at a time and all of the accessories in wood that I would need to assemble and craft the dolls. Anyway, fun to share a little of this for me. I like remembering him in his workshop. He would turn up the music, usually jazz and eat a tootsie roll or two that he hid out there from the kids.

    1. Ike, sadly I don't make them anymore. They were about seven inches tall. I did do some really tall ones as well, but mostly the seven inch ones. Maybe someday I will attempt to do some more, but I could never do what Kip did with the wood. He was the best.

  9. WONDERFUL!!!!!!!! I understand that you need a break, the Love of your Heart is gone and with him the creativity (perhaps a little time or a long time, anytime it comes back [I think, I hope for you :} ]) and then the same style or another. Your Diggi's are fantastic (I think, I say it loooong time ago *shame*).
    Thank you sooooooooo much for your sweety Lovelys!!!

  22. Thank you for sharing. I remember you had said something about your previous work a long, long time ago (I've been a follower for a couple years now). But these "dolls" are amazing and I don't remember ever seeing a picture of them before. It's my 25th wedding anniversary today...I remember the sadness you had over losing Kip, so this reminds me to enjoy and love every day I have with my husband. You are loved by your "crafting" friends.
