The first doll I ever made was an Immaculate Heart of Mary doll for my daughter over 7 years ago. I wanted my daughter to experience the faith in a very real, tangible way-and also a way that was fun. I wanted her tea parties and trips to the park to be accompanied by Jesus, Mary, and the Saints & Angels. That's where it all started. A desire to call the Saints and Angels "friends" for our children.
