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

Day of the Dead Couture Class

It was a special day for me. I was lucky enough to get into
a "Julie Nutting" class at "stamp you heart out" in Claremont, CA. today. 
The fist time I got to meet Julie was last weekend, at Glitterfest.
My daughter recognized Julie's art a mile away, and it didn't hurt that 
our booths were just a couple of table away from each other at the show, 
and we got to chat for a bit. 

When I arrived at class this morning, Julie & I said our hello's 
and then she stop'd and said Oh, I almost didn't recognized you
without your hat. You had to be there ~~~

Anyhow.... Julie is an awesome artist. She has been featured in Somerset 
Studio Magazine several times. Julie is funny, charming, and witty. 
Today we are learning the art of paper collage. We created an 8 x 10 project featuring one 
of her brilliantly designed works using a "Day of The Dead theme. 

Here is a couple of pic's from today's workshop ~
