How do you decide what to name your doll? Do the names come to you as you are sculpting their little faces? Is the name dancing in your head before you even begin? Sometimes, just the first letter for a name does that to me..... and then there are times, even though they can be some of my favorite dolls, a name never quite seems to come to me.
This doll that I just finished, I think I shall call Matilda. The letter "M" kept coming to mind as I sculpted, I even toyed with Madalyn, but to me I think she has the spunk of a Matilda. I am just finishing a little "you know what kind of"dolly for her to hold. Don't you just love her green shoes?
