• "Everything is a grace, everything is the direct effect of our Father's love—difficulties, contradictions, humiliations, all the soul's miseries, her burdens, her needs - everything, because through them, she learns humility, realizes her weakness - Everything is a grace because everything is God's gift. Whatever be the character of life or its unexpected events—to the heart that loves, all is well."

Wooden Dolls

Hello! Welcome to my shop. 

Let me tell you a brief story of how these wooden dolls came to be.

My son has a habit of kissing the statue of Mary and the crucifix on our altar. He often requests to kiss them. But sometimes, he takes the statue by himself and kisses it. I often get nervous and tell him not to do that because it might break. But then, who am I to prevent this toddler from showing affection to our dear Mother Mary and Jesus? I feel like a villain!

So I thought of making felt dolls of Jesus, Mary and the saints at first. But then, I'm really bad at sewing (my husband is the one good at sewing). 

Then I thought of corks, but those were too small and a choking hazard.

I prayed for inspiration. And then I saw my little Kokeshi doll. Its a key chain given to me by one of my dearest friends and godmother of my son. 

Wood! Yes wood! Its unbreakable and I can paint on it. We'll be playing and praying soon!
