Meet Angel---a future adoptive mother and Etsy seller, who makes BEAUTIFUL, custom dolls in many colors. :)
I am a stay-at-home mom. My husband Nathaniel and I have three great children: Elijah, age 8, Malachi, age 6, and Lydia, who just turned 2. My boys are in elementary school, and I stay home with Lydia. We live in a small town in Kentucky. I love to read, write, and do crafts. My family volunteers on Sunday evenings at church to teach English to Spanish-speaking people. (Well, Nathaniel and I teach while our kids play with the kids of our students.) I love that my whole family can come together to do this volunteer work, and it is especially gratifying to me because I speak Spanish and feel that this is a way I can really help people. I have been working with the preschool director at our church on maybe offering a bilingual preschool class next school year, but we will have to wait and see if and how that all falls into place.
My Etsy shop is named babychickie. I make sleeping bags for 18" dolls and Barbies, and I make Waldorf-inspired dolls, which are stuffed with wool and made of natural materials.
I opened the Etsy shop to earn some money toward adoption. I have always wanted to adopt, and there are so many children who need homes. We are looking at international adoption right now, but the cost is substantial, and we haven't saved enough to start the process yet. I continue to save, pray, and hope that we are getting closer to the day we bring home a little one.
My dolls are all handmade and so are one-of-a-kind. I love using different skin tones, eye colors, and hair colors. Plus, sleeping bags are really popular with kids, and they are not something that are easy to find. I offer lots of colors and prints. I work hard to make everything durable and affordable.
