Hello lovelies! I hope you are all well! I am so excited to introduce Diamanto and her newborn today! I think she is one of the sweetest art dolls I have created. I received a message about a month ago from a young lady asking if I could make an art doll of a mother holding her newborn. Of course, I replied, I would love to make such a doll. She thanked me and said that she would get back to me soon, in a week a two, after she had her baby! Such a precious gift to herself to honour this milestone in her life!

When a woman births, not only is a baby being born but so is a mother.

Motherhood. Parenthood. What a roller coaster!

You are going to suck at this parenting gig AND be awesome at it at the same time, ALL THE TIME!

“You will be a different parent every morning to a child who will also be different, sometimes changing in just hours, or minutes, or before your eyes. There will be good days and bad days, good minutes and bad minutes, good choices and not so good ones. You will do some things, probably a lot of things, wrong. Be gentle with yourself, because you are wildly loved and incredibly needed. You are climbing Mt. Everest with basically zero conditioning – expect to be kind of terrible at it for awhile. You are beautiful.”


It was just such an honour to create Diamanto and her newborn and I am sure she will be treasured for many years to come. Congratulations to all the special mums who gave birth during lockdown.
