My name is Linda Walsh and I am an avid crafter, doll maker and doll pattern designer. I have been crafting for over 50 years and have been online since 2004 when I created my first Linda Walsh Originals website. From there I created several websites and my Linda's Blog, as well as many, many other blogs. I'll admit it. I love to blog.
The dolls and I, are the owners of Linda Walsh Originals which sells e-patterns and handmade dolls & crafts for grown-up girls!
Now you might be saying you sell dolls and crafts for grown-up girls? That's right. Grown-up girls. You see, I'm a woman who has never outgrown her love of dolls and crafts. I just love making them and using them as decorations for my home. I change them with every season and holiday and find they create a wonderful, warm environment for my home.
So, I designed a wide variety of different doll patterns, as well as some craft patterns. My doll patterns are designed for all those grown-up girls who are still little girls in their hearts. They are meant to be loved and displayed as decorations by grown-up girls in their homes and are not intended as toys or products for use by children. My doll and craft patterns range from easy for beginners to difficult for the advanced seamstress who wants a challenge.
Besides doll & craft patterns we also sell handmade dolls & crafts for grown-up girls decorating needs. If you are looking for a decoration for your home then we have a doll or craft for every occasion, every season, and every holiday.
Besides all of the above I've always wanted to design custom fabrics using my "dollie" whimsical graphics and was finally able to create a "Linda Walsh Originals Fabric Designs" shop at Spoonflower.com. If you're looking for fabric to make decorations and/or handmade gifts for a special occasion then we have many fabrics to choose from. Whether it's a baby shower, little girl's doll or birthday party, little boys birthday party, graduations party, retirement party, senior citizen birthday party, bridal shower, etc. we have many custom fabric designs to help you.
To go along with all our fabric designs we have several product lines. "It's Raining Doll Parties" if for children's tea parties, birthday parties, crafting parties, or friends parties. "Alpacas Rock" is for boys and girls birthday and crafting parties as well as alpacas rock farm days events. "It's Raining Baby Showers" is for baby showers, baby shower decorations and nursery decorations. "Gray Is Beautiful" products line is for senior citizens and birthday or retirement parties
If all that isn't enough we also have "a zillion blogs" which we also write for. Needless to say we do a lot of writing. Why so many, you might wonder? Well, the dolls just love to see their names in print and I like to do as much as a I can to help showcase "artists & crafters" on the net.
Why? For a couple of reasons. First, the arts & crafts community on the net is one of the best communities out there. Everyone is always so willing to help everyone else out. Secondly, everyone is so skilled and so creative that I like to showcase their talent as much as I can. So, wherever I can I try to promote all the artists and crafters on the net.
And last but not least, I need something to write about in all those blogs besides "dolls" - don't I?
