Sunday, July 17, 2011 now on Artfire!

I'm excited to let you know about my new online store here at, where I'm able to offer great products, prices and service. To celebrate my grand opening, I invite you to visit and look around. All the dolls that you see pictured are available for purchase immediately, and will ship to you when your order is placed.All dolls measure approx. 4.5" high and are made from a wooden clothespin, head and stand which have been painted with non-toxic acrylic paint . Most of their clothing is not removable. Most of their arms are can be repositioned if you like. All dolls are handmade by me in a smoke-free environment. They are all beautiful little clothespin dolls.It takes about 2 to 3 days to make each doll. Each doll has her own personality. No two dolls are alike, some dolls may be similar but because of the handmade process each doll is unique. Some dolls may have slight imperfections in the wood, but aren't we all a little less than perfect! By email: sugarplumdolls@gmail

OOAK Arts and Crafts

The Acronym for One Of A Kind OOAK "One of a Kind Arts and Crafts" seems to have originated on the internet. I found this definition in wikipedia but it has since been removed, since no real consensus on what it defines can be agreed upon. "OOAK stands for "one of a kind," which is an acronym that is widely used on the Internet by artists who make original items such as jewelry, artist dolls, fashion dolls, reborn baby dolls, sculptures, and clothing."

Cool Doll Houses

Here is a picture of one of the 3D doll house puzzles I was telling you about.. They are really fun to do when you are just sitting watching TV... I buy mine from the local arts and crafts store, but you can also get them online at  amazon and such... 

Posts of the Day

Sorry it has been so few and far between for my postings, but as we all know "life happens"! But gladly I can now say I am back on a regular schedule of posting and crafting.

I finally ordered and received my Sizzix die which is a graduation gown for my paper dolls.  I plan to make some for my students as pins and give to them at graduation.  The thing about crafting is that you can never get bored! You can always find something to do. I look forward to hearing from all of you !

Sold 3 Clothespindolls!

Back in November 2010 I sold 3 of my dolls at a festival this weekend! Yippee!! I will miss them, but I am sure they will be happy in their new home!

Sugar Plum Dolls now on CafePress

My cute clothespin dolls make fabulous Christmas ornaments or gifts BUT are now available as greetings cards, postcards and more.  If you like the dolls, now you can have them on a card or mug!

Welcome to SugarPlum Dolls

Welcome to I think my cute clothespin dolls make fabulous Christmas ornaments or gifts BUT are now also  available as greetings cards, postcards and more..Just to let you know all dolls are individually handcrafted clothespin dolls and make very special gifts or can be used as a holiday ornament. I think they add a personal touch to the holidays! It takes me about 2 to 3 days to make each doll. Each doll has her own personality. No two dolls are alike, some dolls may be similar but because of the handmade process each doll is unique. Some dolls may have slight imperfections in the wood, but aren't we all a little less than perfect!   
Each doll arrives on my worktable as a blank slate. After I draw on the face, paint the hair and body, then I glue the head to the body then wait a day for the paint and glue to dry. I have a treasure trove of fabric and tulle and I begin to craft an outfit and accessories for each girl. I hope you will enjoy your visit here. You can shop for an actual doll online at or visit me on YouTube at where I show you how to make your own Sugar Plum Clothespin dolls and other cute handmade items. Enjoy the day!
