Fabulous Fairies by Donna Cooper

I came across this fabulous doll artist in the forums on Etsy while I was wasting a bit of time one day. I think we were showing off our items with roses. I clicked on the link that took me to this listing:


I love fairies!! I could live in a fantasy world...if there were such a thing. If I had patience and absolutely no need to make money from my work and the time I would try to make fairies out of clay. Ah, maybe someday. :)

Anyway....I thought, "What an adorable fairy!" I clicked on all the pictures in the listing so they would give me a larger view so I could study all the incredible details that make these dolls each an amazing work of art. The fabric selections, color combinations, the sweet hand painted faces and all the little carefully chosen delightful and magical!!

And so as with any yummy thing, I can't devour just one!! I went on to look through Cooperdolls shop, oooing and aaahhhing over each one. I have picked out just a few of my favorites to share. I could have put every one here, but that would have just been a bit silly seeing as you all can just as easily make your way to this adorable shop and spend some time with the fairies all on your own.

Doll artist, Donna Cooper lives in my home state of Illinois and has just been on Etsy since January of this year. Here is what Donna says about her doll making on her profile page: "I started hand crafting cloth dolls 2 years ago. I find them rewarding and exciting on a creative level. Each doll is unique in it's own way, and I love the hunt for the perfect embellishment to make each one special. Many hours go into the creative process for each doll, and yet as I finish each one I'm so excited to get the next one started."
