About Me

Upland, Ca, United States
Sissy Dre was inspired by my father, Robert Felix Rosales, particularly his stylish clothes and big-hearted ways of being. My father was always open to any new hobbies or opportunities and especially enjoyed meeting new people. I take on this creative venture to honor him in my own way. I have been making cloth dolls since January 2009 when I left the corporate world behind and moved to Upland, CA. with my family. Our lively household includes two teenage children, four dogs, six cats, and a wonderful husband who always supports us with love and grace. I had never worked a sewing machine before but I truly love making dolls and enjoy every aspect of creative life. Making dolls form scratch has opened artistic doors within me that I never knew existed and I hope this blog helps to inspire some crafty part of you too. 000000

Birthday Girl Doll ~

2010 It's official  ~ launching into the "Art Doll" business venture with Janet Schultz this year.

Both of us bring experience from the "corporate america" area ~ Janet has been sewing since she was a little girl, making her own clothing for various occasions in grade school and high school and now into various other media's that she shares openly.  Her spirited heart keeps her young and fun and is always looking for new creative ways to create. I 'll contribute to our websites, and marketing tactics, as well as learning the secrets of sewing.

Janet and I met at Piecemakers last October when I took her "Primitive Pilgrim" class. Since then we've been sharing and collaborating daily.


This Saturday Jan 9th, Piecemakers in Costa Mesa, CA is having a "Annual Open house with Piecemaker's Teachers" from 1-4pm.

Janet will be providing her class schedule on "primitive creations" as well as tips and techniques.  I will be displaying some of the "Primitives" that I made in her classes, as well as newly created dolls.


The fun is just beginning, we have much to due, we'll be launching a joint "ETSY" site, creating signature art dolls, and attending lots of shows this year. I look forward to meeting and seeing you all.

The best ornament is "Humility"
The richest wealth is "Wisdom"
The strongest weapon is "Patience"
The best security is "Faith"
The best tonic is "Laughter"




I hope to see you soon ~ Much Love ~ Andrea
