Every Year a Blessing

Hello lovelies, I hope you are well! Today I would like to introduce a custom art doll I made a while back! The lovely young lady who commissioned me to create him, as a special birthday gift for her father, visited my studio and came very well prepared! She had notes and photographs and a very good idea about what she wanted. It was truly a pleasure and honour to take her idea and give it life in the form of a SO SOPHIE art doll. Here is Mr V!

Growing older doesn’t mean we have to be any less active or enthusiastic about life. In fact Mr V has so many activities and  hobbies that we made a two-in-one!

“For age is opportunity no less than youth itself,

Though in another dress.

And as the evening twilight fades away

The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.” 

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Mr V has a special message for all of us: the age you feel means more than your actual birthdate! In fact, according to David Robson and his article for the BBC, most people feel younger or older than they really are. This ‘subjective age’ has a huge effect on their physical and mental health.

“Ah, but I was so much older then,

I’m younger than that now.”

Bob Dylan

And remember, every year is a blessing. Thank you for the inspiration Mr V!

Have a lovely weekend.
