Sole Hope

Have you heard of Sole Hope??  If not, allow me the pleasure of introducing you!  This amazing organization is working to offer HOPE, healthier lives, and freedom from foot-related diseases through education, jobs, and medical relief in Uganda.  The coolest part?  Their doing it with recycled jeans.  You can even host your very own Sole Hope party to get involved!

I was contacted recently by the very talented Jeannie Young, who is the author of: Take A Walk In My New Shoes, to create a doll of the main character. The story takes you through a day in the life of an 8 year old Ugandan boy named Moses.  Here he is all finished, along with some photos from Sole Hope and of the book.  Such an amazing group and cause!   

 

 

A Christmas Surprise

Happy New Year!!  Wow, where did 2015 go?  I don't know about you, but the last year felt incredibly fast.  I hope 2016 is just as dynamic, but maybe a bit slower.  I hope everyone had a super relaxing holiday.  We sure did! 

Time to catch up and fill you in on some things I've been working on.  For the holiday, I decided to surprise one of my dear friends with an inspired Coraline doll for her daughter.  She received it on Christmas Eve...nice job postal service!  Couldn't have planned that any better if I tried.  I love sending surprise packages.
