Thank you so much for the 13 (!) days of Christmas.

I just discovered your gorgeous clothes for dolls! However, I did have one question for you. I was curious if you could tell me what doll was used as the model for the 18" slim Birthstone Ruby - July Queen clothes. Thank you so much!

Hi Karen: I live in Cookeville, TN (your neighbor 1.5 hours West!). I'm a new (57 years old!) Ellowyne fan. I have just recently ordered my first 2 dolls, but neither have arrived yet. I can't wait to see one in person. I found out about your work/website from the Ellowyne Chatboard. Amazing! all I can say about it! Also Amazing!....regarding your daughter's repaints! My husband and I were in the pastorate for 30 years, so I've also lived all across the South and Midwest. Seven years ago we took a much-needed "break" from the difficult life of a pastor/family and moved to Cookeville (my husband's hometown), and are living in the house he grew up in. I have 3 grown children & 8 grandchildren. Like you, my favorite flower is the Peony! I've loved those flowers since I was a little girl--they are nostalgic for me. I also am a follower of Jesus Christ, and continue to daily be amazed at nature and the world we live in. I express myself through pressing wildflowers and making bookmarks, framed flower art, etc. Anyway....didn't mean for this to be so long. I just wanted to tell you how beautiful I think your website is (in every way), and I've tagged it to watch for future outfits for my 2 Ellowyne's (which I kinda know are going to increase in number, once I've seen/enjoyed them in person! ha) Thanks for reading my l-o-n-g email!

Your gowns are so beautiful! I'm wondering if you'll ever be doing any more gown sets for the 18" slim dolls? I found you and purchased a set, but then you started designing for the smaller dolls. Just wondering.....

Wow Karen,

I have been admiring your work on ebay for the past few months and just found your site. I am truely in awe of your work. I was never fond of playing with dolls but always loved creating clothes for my Barbie doll when I was a kid. I was laid off my job recently and my sister suggested sewing AG doll clothes and started this spring. Researching it on ebay lead me to your creations. I just can't express how fantastic your work is and how much I enjoy looking at them! You are truely gifted and your daughter is also!!!

I am truly fortunate that I have gotten to be in on your amazing work from the beginning. I love every item I have bought from you; they are works of art and real treasures. I am so glad I found you because you bring to life so many of my faery and fantasy wishes I have had since I was a little girl. You have been given a wonderful gift and I'm glad I get to partake in it! Thank you for my favorite dollie items in my collection and for a great website that allows us to escape to fantasy-land!

You are a truly blessed and talented artist. I am so happy that I was lucky enough to discover you and your work. Your beautiful, creative, fun, colorful, and oh, so lovely designs help make many lives a whole lot rosier. I thank God that your special hands can breathe whimsical life into our farthest and fondest dreams through your doll outfits. Your creations are done with impeccable taste and are always filled with purity and all that is good.

And to end with a less intense, syrupy comment::arrow: My Ellowyne is sure glad that I bid on your outfits as she can never have enough clothes to show off. This website is perfect, but I wouldn't expect any less from you. Just to make everyone envious, I am the proud owner of Ellowyne's "Just for Fun #3" and my Mom

fought hard and won Ellowyne's "Romance #7". I plan on bidding on many, many more of your outfits for, hopefully, many years to come. OK, I will shut up now so there is room for others to comment! Thanks, Karen for this site, a place we can all come to dream and forget all our worries, if only for a while. Your new Friend with your Favorite name, Karen M.:D


12:36 PM on September 30, 2007

Wow....your designs are exquisite! Wish I had more dolls just for your outfits. But don't worry, I don't mind changing clothes!!

7:55 PM on September 24, 2007

Karen, Everything looks very beautiful and so original. I wish I collected dolls so I could buy your outfits! Keep up the good work.


11:29 AM on September 22, 2007

I'm so happy you put up this site. I never get tired of looking at these, although it's likely to just make me wish I'd won all these auctions myself!


9:41 PM on September 20, 2007

It is so wonderful to see your amazing creations all in one place! I am delighted to see works from before I discovered you. You are truly gifted! Your work inspires the imagination! I will always cherish your friendship and the creations I have been fortunate enough to recieve. I can't wait to see what is in store for us! Best of luck! :D


6:43 PM on September 20, 2007

I love the costumes and I always admire your brilliant design ideas and incredible execution details. :)


3:12 PM on September 20, 2007

Wonderful, Karen! So happy you finally did this. Now I can browse and sigh and admire...


1:26 PM on September 20, 2007

Good Luck to a very talented lady!! I hope that you will create some beautiful outfits for all of us who love Ellowyne!!


12:33 PM on September 20, 2007

You are the best doll designer out there, Karen :D! I love seeing all your creations lined up here. Great work!


11:35 PM on September 19, 2007

I am utterly amazed at your genius!!!! I could spend hours gazing at every detail!! I know it sounds funny, but the beatuy really almost brings tears to my eyes. I know that you lovingly created all these things. May the owners of your creations treasure them always!
