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

Garage Sale Treasures

Hi Peeps ~ Wow haven't blogged in a while, shame on me.
Been busy with garage sales here in Upland, CA for about
the last 5 weeks .....
Rummaging thur boxes, closets, backyards, lawn furniture,
and whatever else no one wants to look thur. Found some neat 
stuff that I haven't see in a while ~ I'm having so much fun, and it's
getting kinda of addicting. My kids cringes when they see 
"garage sale" signs because I so want to pull over and take
a peek.....

Anyhow, here's some quick pictures I took before 
I repurpose and or paint, and or 
take into the shop for display ~ 
or whatever I figure out what I'll
be creating with this stuff...

Enjoy .......
