"Mommy", said sweet Little Red,"Can you make me a unicorn?" ... and so began our magical journey...
ON A Mission of Love
Inspired by the wonder of her own children and the little girl within (a.k.a. Charlie), founder, Charlene Stothers aims to hand-craft her way into the hearts of many. With no two dolls alike, her unique and lovable hand crafted creations encapsulate the magic of childhood, imagination, playful delight and that special kind of love that exists between a child and those who love and nurture them….
But the magic doesn’t stop there. We are on a mission, not only to do what we love, but to use what we love as a vehicle of kindness and hope. For every doll sold, a donation will be made to feed a child for a week or to give much needed care to children with cancer.
treasures of Love
We know that when you buy one of our handcrafted dolls, much heart and consideration has been given to your decision. Our creations are entrenched in the magic of childhood and are tokens of a special kind of love that exists between a child and those who love and nurture them. It is a special kind of love, and we get it. With each doll being lovingly handcrafted, and no 2 dolls alike, we like to think of our dolls as heirlooms of love that are magical friends today and beautiful keepsakes for tomorrow.
Best described as a creative dreamer, Charlene’s dream began at a time when imaginative adventures were lived through Enid Blyton books, dreams could be had and anything was possible. Off-course as time passed, the dream was shadowed by grown up ambition and responsibilities. But be that as it may, the magic still lingered . . .
The glow of the embers of Charlie Loves was “accidentally” fanned during a difficult time of the pain of the loss of one Charlene loved so dearly. It was during this time that sweet and unassuming Little Red asked for a Unicorn Doll. The little girl within (a.k.a. Charlie) was awakened and a world of creativity became a comforting distraction. The small sweet arms of 3 year old “Little Red” and 1 year “Little Snow” brought inspiration, hope and purpose. Life was precious, relationships mattered and Charlene knew it … her loss awakened her to a life of purpose and she also knew that like herself, there were many others who were hurting. Living for more was not an option. As a stay at home mom, she looked to what she had, and started there . . . with a dream and a few pieces of fabric.
The more she created, the more she found herself lost in a familiar and wonderful world of playful delight, imagination and creativity . . . It brought such delight to Charlene and her own children, that she was all too eager to share this world with you through her creations…
