About Me

My photo
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

Glitterfest Spring 2010



Yesterday, May 22, 2010 was a big day for all the artists who attending the 2nd annual, 
Mixed Media Art Show & Sale ~  "Glitterfest".
Hosted by Diane White & Sheryl Simpson of "Whimzy".

Whimzy is located at
474 El Camino Real 
Old Town Tustin
714-573-1025
~You'll want to stop by to see all the latest unique art pieces 
Whimzy receives weekly ~ and a few surprise pieces that will
"WOW" the socks off ya ~ 

On with the show ~ 

Artists arrival & set up between 7:00 &  9:00 am...
it was like watching a parade for two hours, I could not 
focus on one thing to long because, right behind the first
fabulous art pieces coming in ~ the next load of dollies and 
hired help, were bringing in loads of other fabulous art. 
It was really incredible. 

This show is a mixture of recycle, reclaimed, objects, 
old & new fibers, fabrics, jews, beads, glass, soldering objects,
paper, clay, ... and so much more then I can not capture. 
What I can say is, 90% of the artists and their art for
this show is exquisite and on the cutting edge of a new artist society.


So, here are just a few of the pictures I captured, I sure wanted
to take more. However, I hope you are able to attend the next
"Glitterfest" on October 2, 2010 ~

Well, that was just a very small piece of the talented
artists that were at the show, there were 56 artists total, 
with approxiently 500 ~ 600 patrons in attendance.

I love this "corner of my world" that I have fallen into
in so many ways.  All the artists that I have come across have only wanted to share 
their craft openly and honestly to encourage and inspire everything hand made. 

My hope and wish for you, is that you do get the change to attended 
Glitterfest Fall on October 2, 2010 same place & 
same time. 


Much Love ~

Jester Girl

Wow ~ Glitterfest is approaching quickly now, 
and the race begins on finishing up the details on the dolls. 

This month became increasing busy right under my nose, 
I kept telling myself I have some time left to get those ~ 
unfinished projects done, no problem. Yuikes ~ who was I kidding.

Anyhow, just finished up Veenas Mercantile Pattern ~ 
"Jester Girl" gave her a top hat last night ~ 

As well as "Mode Girl" with a bit of hair spray to keep the 
"DO" in place ~ 


And here are the girls ......










"People will insult you and hurt you. 
They will lie and say all kinds of evil things about you
because you follow me. But when they do,
you will be happy. Rejoice and be glad, because you 
have a great reward waiting for you in heaven".

~ Matthew 5:11 ~12



I hope I get to meet you at "Glitterfest" on May 22, 2010
