There’s a commercial airing these days for a package-delivery company, where a whole family is held at bay, outside their home, afraid to go inside because of a mechanical clown doll. I was watching that recently with a friend, who remarked offhandedly, “Yeah, dolls are scary.”

My daughter, Jane, is 5 years old, and as smart as a whip. As a matter of fact, she’s often been cautioned that “she’s too smart for her own good.” We’re talking cartoon character Lisa Simpson smart. But unlike her yellow spiky-haired pearl-wearing TV counterpart, who loves to play with “Malibu Stacy,” my little Jane seems to have no use for dolls at all. That is, until last month. . . .

Well this weekend as usual I ran errands. And when I went to our local buy everything store there were all new dolls out. Being a huge fan of playdolls I bought them all!

I think I am going to start this Visiting Dolly Artist blog, by giving people a blow by blow of my day!
