I have been a paper doll collector since I was 5 years old. I try to limit the items to pre 1949, but there is always something that catches my eye and ends up in my collection, especially from the modern day artists.
I also am a paper doll artist, make my own greeting cards and design in crochet, and at rare times will write poetry. Over the years I have tried just about every type of craft or needlework there is. My eyes are slowing down so now I am only doing paper doll art work and making my own cards.
I have saved greeting cards and have lots of personal ephemera. Seems anything paper that has lovely art on it ends up in a box somewhere in my home. I even collect pictures of peoples faces that appeal to me.
I like to read light hearted woman detective mysteries,called “cozy mysteries” . Have boxes of paperbacks but every couple of years will re-read them.
I work full time as a comptroller for a small manufacturing company.
