For me, one of the highlights of the Nov 09 Brisbane ABCD Meetup goodie bags were the gorgeous cards contributed by Kristina Snerling from Tiny Concept. They reminded me that I wanted to share Kristina's incredible dolls with you also.
Former children's wear designer Kristina creates divine hand-sewn heirloom dolls that have been eagerly snapped up by collectors at markets over the past year. Kristina is a former children's wear designer, which is evident in the detail and quality of her dolls' fashion - perfectly gathered ruffles and rosettes, and beautiful use of wools, linen, raw silks, Swiss cottons and vintage textiles. Each doll has her very own name and history and huge dose of love.
You can find Tiny Concept dolls, soft toy soldiers and other lovely pieces at the Tiny Concept online store (where you can also place a custom order). You can also find the more elaborate doll designs exclusively at Udessi online and these are truly heart-stopping (see Marjolaine above).
Kristina has also recently released a delightful series of Christmas cards and note cards featuring her sweet illustrative characters; you can find them in the Tiny Concept online store.
And don't forget to stop by and say hi to Kristina on the Tiny Concept blog.
