Hello! Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and view my one of a kind dolls. I recently passed the 10 year mark of this wonderful area of artistic expression and creative design. Over the past decade I have grown to love customizing Barbies a great deal. It is truly an amazing process to see a doll transformed into a one of a kind design. For the most part I sell exclusively on Ebay, and I do take custom orders when I can. I work primarily with Barbie and other 11.5"-12" dolls but I do occasionally work with 16.5" dolls like Tyler and Sydney. I have also ventured into other areas such as ooak clothing and jewelry sets for both sized dolls.

As for my background, I finished my college education with a degree in Visual Communication and Graphic Arts. I am happily married with two children. When our second child came along we decided that I would take time off from work to stay at home with our children. My husband has been very supportive of my growing passion for designing dolls.

I am really enjoying my craft and hope you do too. If you would like to be added to my mailing list to be the first to know when my latest ooak dolls are on ebay or for website updates, send me an email or go directly to my new Yahoo update group. Please sign up, I would be happy to approve new members.....Or if you have any questions or comments please let me know.

Thank you!
Nicole Kartio
