My Story

My name is Gwendolyn Cummings I am the owner of GC Crafts and Designs. The first
memory I ever had was sewing, making anything was in elementary school, and then a home economics class in high school.

2006 I started having a constant dream about a doll, and the one person I would consult about my dreams was my Grandmother, and she told me that dreams are important, they are trying to tell us something or give us a message, she said if I had a dream again should write down or draw what I saw. One night I got up in the middle of the night, while the dream was still fresh in my head and drew a picture of a doll and then went back to sleep. The next day as I examined what I had drawn I realized that the doll wasn’t a normal doll, it looked like a piece of clothing that a child could wear, but it was a doll. I decided to make the doll for my daughter, and she loved loved…. This one Ideal opened a flood gate and brain just had an explosion of ideas, I would dream about all kinds of art, and wake up wondering what it looked like if I made what I saw in my dreams, everything I made in the beginning process was conceived through my dreams and I have been creating ever since. In 2014 I started my business, Along with Dolls, I had started working with glass beads, and have incorporated them into many of the accessories, and art work that I have designed… I am always amazed at many of the pieces that I have designed and crafted. I am excited to see people wear something I made or just enjoy it in their homes.
“Art is what we find to be pleasing to our senses”…... My art crafts and designs were conceived from my dreams, I hope you find everything on this website pleasing to your senses.
