It is snowing today, our first measurable snow this winter. A surprising, heavy snow managed to sneak in during the midst of autumn this year, well before the winter solstice, but that doesn’t really count.
It feels only fitting and proper that I am surrounded by white, both indoors and out, as I work on creating an all white wardrobe for one of my Izannahs. She is quite anxious to be off to her new home and is sitting patiently next to my sewing machine, urging me to hurry and finish so that she can begin her travels…
My name is Paula Walton. I’m a working craftsperson. I’ve been self-employed since 1986, when I started selling the items that I make under the name A Sweet Remembrance. Among other things, I am a doll maker, a dressmaker that specializes in reproduction women’s and children’s clothing, maker of spun cotton ornaments and holiday figures, and a freelance designer. Upon occasion I write magazine articles and am a Craftsperson in Residence. I teach and do demonstrations quite frequently, plus I was previously the director and curator of a small museum in Connecticut.
