Izzy Ready to Travel

One of my customers very patiently asked me to make an Izzy a long time ago.  I said yes.  She's purchased work from me when I was a newer folk art doll maker.  She also purchased Elizabeth May Hope, an antique papier mache doll that I rehabilitated.  I appreciate that.

I am very, very slow.   She (the customer) has been a complete peach about it!   I don't take commissions any more, and this is one of the reasons why.   However, I worked hard in May to get this dollie done and I feel she is my best yet.  I like being able to say that.  It doesn't demean any of my previous dolls, just that I caught some Izzy-ness in this doll that pleases me.   And that pleases me when I'm sending this doll on to her new home.  Her new mama will name her.
