candles are lit, the kitchen is cozy and warm while an ice-cold wind is blowing outside and paper stars are dancing in the window.
I am spending the afternoon in the lovely company of lots of little boys and dolls, most of them already dressed up for their journey to their new families, with red cheeks and braided hair, with warm scarfs and soft pillows...
Currently I am finishing the last custom dolls for 2011.
Until the end of next week, I will add a few Little Mi and Little Mo hot-water bottle sets, Get well soon! sets and - if I find the time - one or two Kiki dolls to the webshop.
Products shipped this week will make it in time before Christmas to
The coming year will start with quite a few changes and I am looking forward to an exciting 2012, new challenges and lovely collaborations.
This is why I enjoy all these calm hours before Christmas, listen to the sound of my sewing machine, have a cup of tea and try to keep an eye on a few very curious little fellows on my table (I wouldn´t be surprised to find them hiding in the biscuit tin as soon as I am busy with something else ;-)
Hope you all are enjoying your Christmas preparations!
Juliane | Fröken Skicklig
I am Juliane, doll maker and puppeteer, originally from Berlin, where I was born in 1978, now based in the south of Sweden.
I am educated in Puppetry/ Performing Arts and have been working for many years within the wide field of visual theatre/ puppetry both as a scenographer and as an actress.
In 2008 I started with Fröken Skicklig to design cloth dolls for children. I began to write this blog only a few months later to share my photos and stories. In 2011 I took a long break from blogging and have just recently started again with this journal of my work as a crafter and as a teacher in doll making.
