Crafts store Karima Cammell found an idea for a book in a doll-making class
When you own a crafts store, the potential for finding inspiration is all around you, but you may never know where it will come from. As the founder of Berkeley's Castle in the Air, Karima Cammell is surrounded all day by scrap pictures, spun cotton and other materials for making toys, accessories and more. Then one day at a doll-making class held at Castle in the Air she found the skills she needed to make dolls that would eventually inhabit her new book "The Stumpers."
Made from organic wool, pipe cleaners, clay and textiles, these gnome-like creatures inhabit trees and spend a lot of their time creating music and trying to manifest their dreams.
Now you can win a copy of 'The Stumpers' book!
Karima built an entire world for the Stumpers, including a house, furniture, carts, baskets and more. All of the elements are used to discuss the family's wish to live in harmony.
