Today is International Woman’s Day, Time to Celebrate Those Women Who Inspire Us! Thank You Izannah Walker!

Izannah Patent Hand Written pg 1Thank you Izannah Walker for inspiring me with your beautiful, intricate painted cloth dolls. For being an enterprising 19th century woman who was able to support herself in a male dominated world. For being the first woman to be granted a United States patent related to doll making. You have changed my life!
