About Me

Welcome to my little corner of the world … Aponi Designs“Aponi” means butterfly.  I’ve loved butterflies my whole life!  This photo is my first butterfly which my Mom said made me laugh every time the wings moved.

Please let me share some of my favorite things ~ Barbie and Beads

I have been a Barbie ® doll collector since 1994 … Barbie ® doll’s 35th anniversary.  I wasn’t allowed to have Barbie ® dolls as a child so I’m making up for lost time.  Silkstone dolls are my favorite Barbie® dolls and I adore Poppy Parker and Fashion Royalty’s Victoire … and I can’t leave out Veronique and Eugenia!   I have done ceramics, floral arranging, and beading for humans and dolls, however, I now focus my efforts on clothing and accessories for dolls.  I am very grateful that my talented Mother taught me to sew and paint when I was young.  I also repaint and restyle hair on fashion dolls. 

2020 UPDATE:  In 2018, I discovered Kingdom Doll’s 12″ Monarchs … The sun came out!  I’m head over heels in love!  Of course, now I love the 16″ Kingdom dolls as well … Life truly is GRAND!
