what I'm working on now...

Want a sneak peek? Here you go. My working title: Cloudy Mama.

the tiny doll...

The little surprise bed to send her off in...Waiting...

Hanging out in the chalet...
Made for my Etsy shop...she measures just 2 inches tall...(just sold!) She is my first doll strung with elastic, I think inspired by my research into Japanese ball jointed dolls...I like it, gives her a nice ability to hold a pose.

About Me

My photo
Mamazakka is Mommy blogger Autumn Sousanis; also-known-as Autumn Dunbar; and also-known-as "Mama" to six little ones, ages 9, 7.5, 5, 3.5 2 and a 3 month old! :) Busy,yes. A graduate of C.C.S. (Center for Creative Studies, School of Art and Design in Detroit) with my bachelor's degree in Fine Arts, I have finally found my calling as 'Mamazakka', maker of everything and anything that might improve your home, life and outlook. :) It's my goal to create things that truly meet Wikipedia's definition for 'zakka'; (here's an excerpt)..."cute, corny, kitschy is not enough. To qualify, a product must be attractive, sensitive and laden with subtext." Oh yeah! You betcha! Well, that's my goal, anyhow! I'm also known as an over-user of exclamation marks(!) and parentheses (can't help it) though I do try to keep my smileys to a minimum :)
