Please Meet Listener

Please meet Listener, a special elf created by my mum for my daughter as a Christmas present.

She's a one-of-a-kind, hand-painted doll constructed from cotton, satin, and fibers.

She's a bit homely, as she's part woodland troll on her father's side and part elf and autumn fairy on her mum's, but she's a good friend.

Her job is to listen to Shannon's stories, while Shannon writes them down in this journal...

which has its very own pouch.

Listener has beautiful freehand-embroidered and hand-painted wings, but I am quite sure that she'll never fly away.


  1. WOW ... what an awesome creation & gift!! A perfect friend to listen to a young girls mindful tales! I'm VERY impressed with the handy work and thrilled with the loving idea!! Way to go grandma!!! Thanks for sharing this loving creation with us Marcy!!
