“It’s taken two and a half weeks for me to recover and get caught up enough to write this post 🙂 ”
I managed to write the previous sentence last Saturday… now here it is almost a week later and I still haven’t found time to get retreat photos posted. So I am going to stop everything else for a few minutes and concentrate on finishing this post!
This is just the tiniest glimpse at the fun, laughter, sharing, learning and friendship that we experienced during the first half of the retreat. It was a wonderful experience having all four of these incredible ladies, who were willing to journey to my small corner of New England, come make dolls with me! I simply can not express how much I truly enjoyed getting to know them and sharing our mutual love of Izannah Walker’s dolls. The only two difficult obstacles we faced were actually being disciplined enough to work – since it was all too tempting to just have fun and play dolls – and the rain!
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.
