Hello! Congrats to the winner. I find myself checking in with your site often…it is really neat to learn about your business and your family. I cannot wait until my little girl is old enough for her very own dolly. I loved my dolls so much growing up and can’t wait to share with her. She is 13 months now. I ordered her one of your toddler dolls for Christmas. Mary is a sweet girl who loves to give hugs. I can’t wait to see her hugging her baby! Thanks for your wonderful work! We live in Ottawa and would love to see your dolls here…

I love the picture of the little girl with an armful of dolls, so fun! I think it is awesome that you are making sure not to take on more than you can happily handle right now. Having the time to spend with your children while they are so small is such a special thing, and not a decission that anyone would ever regret. How exciting that your business and your children get to grow up together!

Naomi - November 27, 2008 - 1:26 pm

Gosh, I think the Bambolettas look even sweeter all together like that. You can really see how different each one is! Roo’s really into her doll’s underpants. I need to get her some polka dotted panties to match…

p.s. I ♥ Vancouver

Julie - November 28, 2008 - 10:26 am

I am so excited to see the custom doll you made for my daughter! I just received the shipping notice, so we’ll be on *mail watch* until she arrives! I don’t know how I’m going to wait until Christmas to give her to my little girl! 🙂 Your dolls are just beautiful, and I love seeing them all snuggled up together, each one is do different.

shelby - November 28, 2008 - 5:54 pm

ooooh eeks! Thise dolls are so pretty! Cant wait for mine!

admin - November 28, 2008 - 8:20 pm

Hi gals!
Marissa – it’s really important to us to keep things as calm as possible around here. There’s loads of time for things like big fairs and markets. Now I’m concentrating on what makes most sense and what makes us happy which is what we are doing now 🙂
Naomi – I know, I can’t resist the group shots. I heart Van too – lived there all my life. I’m glad that we can stay there any time we want our city fix.
Julie – She is pretty cute! I’m excited for you to get her too!!
Shelby- I put on her hair today! She’ll be ready to come home by the end of next week 🙂

Christine - November 29, 2008 - 7:39 am

Sounds like you’re doing so well and have everything under control. Compliments! I couldn’t do it. 🙂


admin - November 29, 2008 - 7:51 pm

Sure you could Christine!
Juggling is not without guilt though. I often lay awake thinking ‘am I not spending enough time with the kids?’, ‘should i try to fufill this person/ that person’s expectations?’. ‘is John happy/okay/ getting enough time’, and my personal fav…’have i spent anytime on my eyebrows lately?’

nathalie - November 29, 2008 - 9:59 pm

yes sometimes we must say no to things. it is a huge balancing act to juggle fmnily and work. especially at home work. you guys do such a fabulous job at it. i can’t wait to see kennedy’s doll. i know she will love and cherish it. we have a little crib waiting for her. i will make them cute matching outfits and all. i’m re-living my childhood! this is what children do to grown people. just amazing!

Erica Hildebrand - November 30, 2008 - 11:34 am

I am in awe of how amazing you guys are doing with the business! I think its AWESOME that you guys are so SMART about your goals in such a “mirowave generation” world!! Seriously. I would love to hit the west coast..I live in Winnipeg (winterpeg…br….), oceans and mountains seem countries away.

CanCan (Mom Most Traveled) - December 7, 2008 - 8:28 am

Oh! I didn’t even see the little girl at first! 😉

That booth is amazing; you are right, she is a pro!

I must tell you that your dolls have changed my life. Their magic is absolutely breathtaking.

Your dolls are the most beautiful Waldorf dolls I have ever seen. I can’t afford one- due to student loans- but I check your site once a day just to look at them!

Warmest Regards,

Hello! Your dolls really are beautiful. I can see that you go the extra mile to infuse them with personality and spirit. I have just ordered a custom doll from you, but realize that it is most likely impossible for you to make one in time for Christmas.
My 9yr old daughter wants only a Waldorf doll this Christmas! I would love to make her dreams come true, and this little red head is such a sweetie, I know she would be thrilled!
Please pick us!

Molly - November 18, 2008 - 11:16 pm

tressa - November 19, 2008 - 8:10 am

what a beautiful doll! i wasn’t going to enter as i already have one of your lovelies and ru’s not quite big enough for this gal, but when i saw that her name was sally, and that she has red hair, and is wearing a kimono with birds on it, i knew it was a sign that i just had to enter – my dear friend g., who’s mum died of cancer was named sally, had red hair, and a special relationship with birds, is traveling, seeking roots and reflecting on her mum’s passing. perhaps it will come that this little doll will be meant to be be hers? would be so darling. btw, g.’s 31. 🙂

and – heck, yeah! – ditto on all the props! you are so rocking the world with these expressions of love and fine craft, i am so inspired by your commitment to your art, your focus, your ethics, your play-full-ness. love you! love your dolls.

oh, and now i know who made that sewing machine – little r. will be ready for one soon!

okay, longest post ever xoxox off i go to one of a kind! t.

Your dolls are beautiful! They are reminiscent of the cabbage patch dolls of my childhood, with their fabricated birth certificates and individual characteristics, only made with a whole lot more love and goodness for our children and earth. Thank you for making something so special and healthy for our children. If only the larger toy companies could be so thoughtful.
Use your mind – vote with your dime!

Chris Gross - November 19, 2008 - 5:39 pm

Posting my entry. Rose needs a friend (and mommy just loves these dolls.)

She’s lovely. I am also in love with those sewing machines. I was eying them up on etsy…

Alicia - November 19, 2008 - 6:36 pm

Thanks for another opportunity to win a doll! Looove the sewing machines, unfortunately the Aussie (sorry, Australian) dollar has gone to crap, so I’m unlikely to buy anything from Etsy for a while 🙁

Donna S. - November 19, 2008 - 6:39 pm

My second son is a red head….very fond of redheads!! Please enter me in the contest.

I was directed here by Junior Society and oh boy am I glad I was. What a gorgeous doll! I’m putting together our kids’ holiday wish list right now, so I definitely have to have a look around.

That sewing machine is a riot. My daughters would get a big kick out of that. One of the things they want is a sewing machine in their size. If they get a doll with its own sewing machine, they would be thrilled.

Michelle - November 19, 2008 - 7:23 pm

Found you via Junior Society and Robert Mahar. Your dolls are so incredibly sweet, I will certainly be back, even if I’m not the lucky winner this time. :0) Thanks so much for the chance to bring Sally home.

Elisa D - November 20, 2008 - 12:00 am

Hey there Christina,
We have one of your girls with us here in australia – ‘Star’ whose lovely blonde locks are just like my Scarlett’s or ‘Ska’ as she calls herself (hence the name ‘Star’). I know that both Ska and Star would adore a friend, and who better than a ‘Gingernut’ (Aussie slang for a red head). Love your work, you’ve been an inspiration to me in more ways than you will ever know – since coming across your site and Steiner teachings we have left the city and moved 16000km’s across the country and now live in a gorgeous little seaside village, with lots of the good stuff about – nature, community and family.
Here’s to you!!

Jenny Denysenko - November 20, 2008 - 1:47 am

I became a fan on facebook the minute I saw your dolls. I loved dolls growing up and now I have my own daughter Kate to share the love. You are so inspiring to create something beautiful…I absolutely love your work.

I read your blog and check out your new dolls all the time and after seeing your last 3 dolls go so amazingly quickly I am very glad that I got my doll in September!

Kim Page - November 20, 2008 - 9:44 am

Sharon - November 20, 2008 - 9:48 am

Thank you for generously giving away a labor of love…and hours of your time! My daughter is fortunate to have one of your dolls and she would LOVE to share Sally with a little red headed friend of hers that looks like Sally’s twin!!!

Susan - November 20, 2008 - 10:10 am

Your dolls are gorgeous, and so beautifully and thoughtfully made! I knit dolls and really wish I could sew some half as delightful as yours. I know what a labor of love it is to craft a beautiful doll. I would LOVE to win this one!

Rebecca - November 20, 2008 - 10:12 am

I adore your dolls, and this one is so gorgeous! If you would ever want to trade, please contact me at From that website, you can see the one of a kind sock monkeys that I make. We do custom monkeys, too! All the best,

Emily - November 20, 2008 - 12:41 pm

This is the first time I’ve been on your sight and I love the dolls.

kathleen - November 20, 2008 - 12:42 pm

oh, my 6-year-old daughter’s heart might explode if she won this! she loves her mama-made dolly, but pragmatically told me, those(meaning your dolls) are “the only dolls i would love more.” fingers crossed!

Julie - November 20, 2008 - 12:46 pm

Sally is adorable! So gorgeous! I love her red hair! 🙂

lydia - November 20, 2008 - 12:53 pm

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw too cute – I’m sure she said she wants to come live with me in Germany where we are currently stationed……Yep I heard her loud and clear …. making room for her – she even has the same color hair as me

Stephanie - November 20, 2008 - 12:57 pm

Your dolls are so beautiful. Even though I think my husband and I are more enamored of them than our three year old daughter, I’m sure if she held one she would fall madly in love.

Amy Krueger - November 20, 2008 - 12:57 pm

I’ve been eyeing your dolls for weeks trying to decide which one to buy on natural pod–and then they were all gone! I was crushed. So thanks for the chance to win one for my daughter’s Christmas! Your work is truly beautiful.

A Girl Called Dallan - November 20, 2008 - 1:25 pm

I love these dolls so much! I’m so glad that I found you!

Tara - November 20, 2008 - 1:36 pm

Tonya Bowers - November 20, 2008 - 1:47 pm

This little doll is so cute and with her little freckles…oh my!! She looks just like my little god daughter, who I know would love sally to be her new best friend!

Patti - November 20, 2008 - 2:19 pm

Your dolls are gorgeous! This red head beauty would be a welcome addition to our home and my daughter would be thrilled.

Ashley - November 20, 2008 - 2:48 pm

My goodness, how cute thier little faces are! I’ve never even heard of your dolls before, but I sure do know about them now! My daughters would love them to pieces! Of course, if I happen to win this one, I’ll have to by another one. One can’t have what the other doesn’t, not when it comes to sweet things like Sally. Thanks for the opportunity!

melissa - November 20, 2008 - 2:53 pm

I love your beautiful dolls, I have tried making one for my daughter, but yours are just so amazing, we quite often come to your site to “visit” the dollies.Thank You, Melissa

Marina - November 20, 2008 - 3:34 pm

Cara Christina,
ho scoperto Bamboletta oggi quando cercavo i giocatoli naturali per la mia figlia per Natale. Sto sperando che scrivere in italiano
aiuti le mie probabilità di vincita la bambolla per la mia piccola Luna.

Viviamo a Toronto e sono molto felice che queste bambole belle sono fatte nel Canada.

Tanti XO!

Alba R. - November 20, 2008 - 3:38 pm

Jenny Wren - November 20, 2008 - 5:32 pm

Look at us all… so eager to be a winner! These are beautiful little dolls that anyone would want. I am a crazy spinner, felter, knitter and love the whole idea of these little darlings… When I was a girl we had Travellin’ Dolls and they travelled from family member to family member with a diary to record their adventures… These little ones remind me of those days… Good luck to all… but I hope I win! (tee hee)

Vanessa - November 20, 2008 - 5:35 pm

This doll is beautiful! I love the curly yarn for hair.

Tiffany - November 20, 2008 - 6:06 pm

Tiffany - November 20, 2008 - 6:07 pm

This is a adorable little friend!!! My daughter would love to find this under the tree.

Ashleigh - November 20, 2008 - 6:42 pm

I’m a social worker (foster care). I try to keep toys at my desk to help kids when they come into the agency scared because their lives are being uprooted. A nice soft cuddly doll would be wonderful!

Brooke - November 20, 2008 - 6:59 pm

Your dolls are AMAZING! I have a little love-bird that would LOVE to find one under the tree this year.

Sign me up! 🙂

Lauren - November 20, 2008 - 10:50 pm

She is so cute! My boys have an Italian Nonna too. I love your dolls and think my boys and baby on the way will enjoy her when they all become old enough to love on such a beautiful doll. Mom to two boys 2 1/2 and 18 months plus one on the way.

Tai - November 20, 2008 - 10:52 pm

The perfect gift for my daughter Anna. We all have red hair so Sally would fit in perfectly.

roweena - November 21, 2008 - 2:56 am

hey christina,

audrey just loves her ‘lila grace’ soooo much that i feel like im missing out… i MUST have one of my own so we can share in the bamboletta experience! ‘lila grace’ is certainly not the first doll i have given her because i have given her some beautiful dolls… but it has to be said that she has never loved any doll the way she loves lila… you can truly feel all the love and warmth that goes into a bamboletta doll!

i think sally would love our home here in australia so fingers crossed. rowe x

Nathalie - November 21, 2008 - 4:58 am

This is the perfect doll for my grandaughter!

Jessi - November 21, 2008 - 10:44 am

We live in an older neighbourhood with lots of young boys and girls moving into the old houses with big trees, and I know this doll would be a dear addition to our local toy store…so I recommend to them that they try to carry your art. My daughter and son would love to parent this little one:) Merry Christmas!

ahk - November 21, 2008 - 11:07 am

Your dolls are stunningly beautiful. Thank you for the opportunity to win one!

Margo M. - November 21, 2008 - 11:42 am

Hi Christina
I have sent you long long emails explaining how incredible the entire experience was for “me” and my daughter Jayden. You were terrific and made both of us feel special in the process of getting our beautiful Abagail. It would be wonderful to be able to also give Jayden a friend.

Regardless, we love your little dolls and the new shared experiences that will be forthcoming with Abagail in our home.

William - November 21, 2008 - 12:28 pm

My little girl would love this doll (so would my wife)! Thanks for the contest. We wish you sold your dolls in Ottawa – maybe at the Extraordinary Baby Shoppe?

My daughter and I wrote A POEM FOR SALLY:




Kris Veenema - November 21, 2008 - 7:12 pm

Beautiful work- I love Sally and I know my daughter Claire would take very good care of her… there is a lot of love for natural handmade toys around here.

Lou M - November 21, 2008 - 7:52 pm

What a lovely doll. I’m getting my first granddaughter and she and Grandma will have lots of great times together if we win this doll. Thanks for the giveaway.

Carla Melton - November 21, 2008 - 9:04 pm

I love your dolls. The idea of holding a competition is so fun. I love the way you do hair on your dolls. Long may you enjoy dollmaking !

Adrianne - November 21, 2008 - 9:31 pm

Count me in! I am giddy at the possibility of owning Sally. Thank you for your generosity Christina. This time of year has got to be busy for you. Hugs and happiness to you and your family.

Carrie - November 21, 2008 - 11:32 pm

Hi Christina. I am a big fan down in Southern California. I am always drooling over
your dolls. I think I would buy everyone if I could. My daughter has loved her Taululah now for almost a year. It is her constant companion. She would love to adopt another doll. (I feel kinda greedy though entering this contest because we already have one, maybe we should give someone else a chance, but I cant help it because I am in love with your dolls) I sincerely hope a deserving person wins this doll.

Julie - November 22, 2008 - 12:35 am

I really love your dolls! I know a girl or two who would be SO excited to have one of their very own!

Brett - November 22, 2008 - 1:36 am

Your dolls are awesome!!! I find myself checking your sight multiple times a week. It’s obvious you really love what you are doing and it is even better your family is involved. Count me in for the chance to tuck little Sally in at night with my three year old daughter. She would just love her.

Moanica - November 22, 2008 - 6:30 am

How stinkin’ cute is this doll?!!! My niece would be over the moon to receive Sally this Christmas!

jenn - November 22, 2008 - 7:01 am

what a lovely doll! i have tried making some of these style dolls myself but for such a lovely, simple seeming doll they are so hard to make! everyone keeps telling me that it just takes a lot of practice! I just love the faces on yours!

Chris - November 22, 2008 - 8:36 am

Would love to win Sally for my little girl.

Jenny - November 22, 2008 - 8:56 am

She is so adorable!

Heather - November 22, 2008 - 10:12 am

lace - November 22, 2008 - 4:01 pm

I’m amazed at the beauty that all of these dolls have. I’ve wanted one for my nieces for awhile now I just haven’t got one yet. The beautiful red hair on that day is so fun.

Chantel Hockstein - November 22, 2008 - 4:07 pm

I love these cute dolls my son & I enjoy looking at all the photo’s you have posted of the dolls. His favourite is the one’s at the Gardeners’ Markets. Where he see’s them in groups together.
We would love to win his little sister one!
So they could both have one!

Chantel Hockstein - November 22, 2008 - 4:07 pm

We would love to have another one!

rosesmama - November 22, 2008 - 4:17 pm

I am making a doll for my daughter for Christmas, but her friend who lives nextdoor could certainly use one. Her parents have hit some hard times, her father is closing his business and looking for a job, so I’m hoping to win for them.

Madelyn - November 22, 2008 - 6:30 pm

You sure are cute! Won’t you be my friend.

Jen Baulne - November 22, 2008 - 7:41 pm

Julie - November 23, 2008 - 1:04 pm

oh my goodness, what a gorgeous doll! Please enter me for my sweet little girl 🙂

Helen Griffin - November 23, 2008 - 1:06 pm

We ordered our first Bamboletta dolls for Georgia’s first birthday. She loves them both, the small one sleeps with her, and the bigger one she pats and hugs. This one is so beautiful, it would be well loved at Grandma’s house!

Ally - November 23, 2008 - 6:52 pm

I always wanted a red-haired child – but both of mine are blonde. I hope she joins our family!

MaryAnn - November 23, 2008 - 7:22 pm

Very cute doll. I wish I had her hair!!!

Alice Towery - November 23, 2008 - 8:39 pm

My 3 year old granddaughter in Madsion, WI, has and loves two of your dolls. I have another granddaughter, Julia, in Tennessee who would love for me to win her a doll. Her mother was raised in New Orleans where I still live. If I win a doll for her, I would name her Katrina. Smile.

victoria - November 23, 2008 - 9:51 pm

We were oggling your dolls once again (something we do periodically) and my elder daughter Ella (5) said please, please can’t we buy one mum, I would love her forever and ever. I started to try and explain money, exchange rates etc (yet again) then came across your competition. We would love Sally, count us in your draw.

Katie - November 23, 2008 - 10:18 pm

Oh…a sweet redhead. You are a supreme talent!

Laura - November 23, 2008 - 10:29 pm

She is absolutely adorable! I have several “nieces” that would love her… but if I actually won her, I don’t know if I could bear to part with her myself. Thanks for the contest!

vanessa - November 23, 2008 - 10:59 pm


christinew - November 23, 2008 - 11:22 pm

very cute doll. I know someone who would love it.

Stacey - November 24, 2008 - 12:58 am

Your dolls are so sweet. My daughter is campaigning for a handmade doll, we see them in Whole Foods. You do an awesome job. I love the mermaids, especially. I have yarn envy from looking at their hair. Thanks for making such beautiful things.

Ilona - November 24, 2008 - 12:58 am

I would love to win this for my 4 yr old niece! She would make a wonderful mommy for such a gorgeous baby!

Phyllis - November 24, 2008 - 8:20 am

This would be perfect to have waiting under my tree for my granddaughter! It reminds me so much of her and her personality, she is a spunky little girl with reddish hair and a sweet personality (but she can also be an ornery little tomboy). Your dolls are all gorgeous!

Amanda - November 24, 2008 - 10:07 am

Beautiful dolls, I would be honored to have one in my home.

Sieta - November 24, 2008 - 10:09 am

Joy G - November 24, 2008 - 10:41 am

Oh I just love your creations! They are beautiful. I have two little girls and a son and well my youngest daughter loves babies. I am going to try my hand at rag dolls for them for Christmas. Oh yours are just beautiful. You have such a special gift!

Paul - November 24, 2008 - 10:59 am

My beautiful niece and god daughter would Absolutely LUV one of these dolls of her own to play with…especially the red headed doll to remind her of her red-headed uncle who lives waaaaaaaaaay too far away….!!

Shawn - November 24, 2008 - 11:28 am

Sign me up! She is positively beautiful.

Sarah - November 24, 2008 - 11:53 am

If I win, my daughter and I can both have a bamboletta! She loves hers, her “baby sister”.

George - November 24, 2008 - 12:31 pm

Cute dolls

casey green - November 24, 2008 - 12:35 pm

dear sally,

i see you sewing
sweetly sitting
blue eyes watching
red birds in a tree

someone somewhere
wants a secret keeper
to play with in the forrest
and to sail with on the sea

while you were getting your
curls of red and your dress
was being stitched
a little human someone
who needs a playmate

that little human someone
wrote a purple crayon note
and tied it to a big red kite
so to the stars it’d float

and soon you’ll meet your
who is waiting to meet you
you’ll keep each others’ secrets
in a paisley pocket made for two

a bit of cloth and wool and thread
is really quite a good start
but it takes a human child to love
to complete you with a heart

so ride on a blue heron when
the northern lights begin to whirl
and go and find the human someone
who is wishing you’ll find her

Laura - November 24, 2008 - 12:41 pm

Beautiful dolls for my beautiful granddaughters!

Helen - November 24, 2008 - 12:55 pm

Hi! You do such amazing work, and this is no exception. My friend’s 3 year old calls all her baby dolls “Sally.” It is so cute. I need to start to gather a few for my own daughter who is 19 months old, going on 20 years. Keep up the beautiful work! We love to check in on your web-shop. Thanks for sharing your talent.

Tracy - November 24, 2008 - 1:17 pm

I love your dolls! My daughter plays with them at Babyeats in Lynn Valley and it may be time to get her one of her own!

Colleen Brust - November 24, 2008 - 1:22 pm

Hello! I am visiting after seeing your blog mentioned on a Waldorf craft group. You dolls are absolutely beautiful! Congratulations on having them appear 2 years in Mothering, my favorite magazine. And congratulations on creating a family business. What an inspiration. Best wishes:)

Melissa V. - November 24, 2008 - 1:38 pm

I love your dolls. I am trying to get one for my little 1 year old. Thanks for creating these wonderful dolls!!

christine - November 24, 2008 - 2:13 pm

Your dolls are absolutely gorgeous! I would love one for my 28 month old daughter Maddie. I love the picture of your son nursing his doll. My Maddie and I are still a nursing couple and we don’t meet too many others like us in our area. I can’t wait for Maddie to start pretend nursing her dolls. It is so important for children to see images of nursing as natural, normal behavior. They are bombarded with images of baby bottles every where in our culture. Thank you for sharing the picture of your son. It was comforting for me.

Jen - November 24, 2008 - 2:17 pm

This doll is beautiful, such a happy face and that hair, how did you do it?!!!!!

Paula - November 24, 2008 - 2:50 pm

you are an amazing woman – i am in love with your dolls. i secretly want this doll for myself – however she will make a great companion for my daughter Anna.
thanks – i did try to enter already but didn’t see my comment so i am trying again

Alison - November 24, 2008 - 3:01 pm

Sally is lovely. I’d love her for myself, but I think my 2 year old son would love her to bits. Failing that, I’ll just have to order one for his 3rd birthday.

Alison - November 24, 2008 - 4:21 pm

Oh my, how can I not enter. Your dolls are absolutely gorgeous, what a nice gift this would make for my 3.5 year old. Thank you for offering this contest.

catarina - November 24, 2008 - 4:52 pm

your dolls are superbe.

they make me dream… and i think they would make my little 2 yo too!

Juliette - November 24, 2008 - 5:03 pm

Your dolls are wonderful. Both my daughters will want to take loving care of Sally!

Elle - November 24, 2008 - 5:26 pm

aww me please! my mom collects them and this would be perfect as my dad has red hair!

Amanda - November 24, 2008 - 6:13 pm

I love your dolls. My niece has been saving up pennies for one for awhile. We especially like her freckles and wildfire hair! Thanks for holding the drawing!

Alex S. - November 24, 2008 - 6:15 pm

I know a little girl named Natalie who would take very good care of Sally!

Nana Thea Beans - November 24, 2008 - 6:44 pm

Oh, Sally come sit and sip a spot of water tea…..
The things we can imagine just together you and me… Natalie

I just had to stop in and say that it has been a delight to meet you! I have heard much about you from John (at work… I’m the one who called, twice, on Monday) and I had to come see for myself.

I’m all warm and fuzzy now. I’m also very tired so I’m going to submit this comment before I do too much rambling. Know that you have another admirer.

Oh my goodness. I just found this site through soulemama. How wonderful your dolls are. I have been looking for just the right doll for my grand-daughter. I will think good thoughts and maybe I will be the lucky one. If not, I might be back again.

Holly Clark - November 26, 2008 - 10:10 am

Oh I hope it’s not too late to get my name in there, wish and cross my fingers that this little darling can be my little darling’s best friend.

audrey bilous - November 26, 2008 - 10:29 am

I’m such a big fan of your dolls, and was sooo excited to see they are made right down the island from us! We just had a new baby, but definitly trying to put so money away for big sister to have one of your beautiful fairies! (Shes 4) If I listen to her she would adopt them all! Keep up the really hard work..
We need independant artists like you guys!!!!

Laura - November 26, 2008 - 10:53 am

You make such beautiful dolls!
Growing up my favorite doll was a simple waldorf doll I called Gretchen. She had long red hair and green eyes. I had plenty of other dolls, but I always loved something about her simplicity. Anyway, I would love to be entered into the drawing.

You dolls are a true inspiration.

Kathy Palla - November 26, 2008 - 11:10 am

Love your dolls! And you’re an inspiration to my daughter as she homeschool’s her two little girls (ages 1 1/2 & 4 1/2) in the waldorf way. “Sally” would be VERY happy in their home!

Henita Riesen - November 26, 2008 - 1:44 pm

Oh, I hope I am not too late?! Such cute dolls! I am just starting to lean towards the “natural play” way, and was actually thinking of making our own, but yours are so beautiful! I would love to make a home for the doll with my 3 girls all the way here in Germany!

H. Bell - November 26, 2008 - 1:53 pm

Just saw your webstite today, love your dolls, so adorable, that’s the only word to describe them. Perfect for kids and adults alike.

Count me in on your giveaway. So nice of you.

Roseanne Perkins - November 26, 2008 - 2:47 pm

I’ve been looking at lots of waldorf-type handmade dolls online and yours are by far my favorites! I’m keeping an eye on your Esty store so hopefully if the perfect doll for my daughter comes up I’ll be able to snag it! I might have to pick one up for my other daughter and my best friend’s little girl too…

Elizabeth Rego - November 26, 2008 - 6:04 pm

You are so talented and passionate about what you do!! My little Juniper would love one of your sweet dolls and we are going to save up for one (if we don’t win ;)!! Thank you for making such unique treasures.

Sarah - November 26, 2008 - 7:41 pm

I so so so love your dolls. I am currently working on a similar style doll for my middle child and am amazed by all the care, love, and work that can go in to making a doll. I find your blog inspiring and enjoy looking at the pictures of the dolls.

Laura-Lee Audit - November 26, 2008 - 8:06 pm

So girls are darling! I would love for my little girl to have one of your hand made dolls, she would be welcomed with a warm hug into our home. Beautiful work you are doing here, I wouldn’t know which one to choose!

Angela - November 28, 2008 - 7:41 pm

Wow – you are an amazing artist, these dolls are beautiful! Just came across your site, as I just read Mothering’s Toy Guide, and I was taken immediately! We have committed to only buying natural toys for our children, and there is just something so special about funky yarn hair, scrumptious! I immediately wanted to buy one for Christmas, but realized we’ll have to save up. So gracious of you to give one away! As a homeschool mama to two very imaginative little boys and one endearing baby girl who just turned one, we would love to provide a caring home for Sally.

Dawn - November 29, 2008 - 4:00 am

Absolutley Gorgeous!!! My kids would love to welcome her into our family!

Angie - November 29, 2008 - 3:25 pm

Sally looks just like our son’s granny Louise! We would absolutely be blessed to put her under the tree for him this year. I have admired your dolls for some time and would love to add Sally into our family.

Judi - November 29, 2008 - 4:06 pm

My granddaughter Leah would be a perfect little Mommy for this doll.

Kim - November 29, 2008 - 4:15 pm

My little girl would just ADORE it if she was to open up one of your dolls for Christmas. Her daddy is in Iraq, so this would be such a wonderful companion for her to have while waiting for my husbands safe return.

Theresa Wood - November 30, 2008 - 11:13 am

Oh my! I can’t even begin to say how beautiful your dolls are. I received the ones I ordered for my girls and they are seriously like little people! I am having a hard time keeping them in their box in my closet until Christmas…it just doesn’t seem right! 🙂 My girls are going to absolutely love them, I know they will be their new best friends. Thanks so much for helping to make this such a special Christmas for them! I truly am speechless over just how beautiful these dolls really are! Thanks again Christina!

🙂 Theresa, Ellie and Johanna

Alicia - November 30, 2008 - 12:17 pm

Well I just discovered you today and found I cannot get one of your dolls for my daughter by Christmas….perhaps this would be the only other way. Great idea and hope you get many orders placed.

Alicia - November 30, 2008 - 12:19 pm

ps. my daughters name is Willa. Have you ever made of of her?

Rebecca - November 30, 2008 - 1:21 pm

Love this for a granddaughter

Hedy King - November 30, 2008 - 1:24 pm

Our Maddie is 9 and has a little patch of red frizz because her hair refuses to grow. She also has a communication disorder and doesn’t speak much. But she loves dolls with red hair like her sister. We would love to have Sally for Madeleine. Thank you for your beautiful creation.

Louis D - November 30, 2008 - 1:59 pm

Your dolls are really something special. Would be honored to win one!

Brooke - November 30, 2008 - 2:17 pm

I just found your site as I am looking for a FIRST doll for my little GiGi-she will be turning one this Dec.And I am in love with your dolls, it also helps that my husbands family is from Italy so your name could not be more perfect-We will be hoping to hear good news as she is so precious. Thanks for the chance at love again-B

Kendra - November 30, 2008 - 3:10 pm

Oh, I have been an admirer of your dolls for sometime now. My girlfriend ordered one for her daughter and I love the weight and feel and crafts(wo)manship of them. I would just love to win one.
Hope you had a good weekend!

Karen - November 30, 2008 - 4:18 pm

pick me! pick me!!!

Theresa Wood - November 30, 2008 - 8:13 pm

…I forgot to add that if we are the fortunate ones to win Sally, I would bring my girls down to the local children’s hospital closer to Christmas and let them give her to another child who could most certainly use a “friend.” Thanks again, Christina. You and your people working with you are doing a wonderful thing.

🙂 Theresa

Brittney - December 1, 2008 - 5:21 pm
