SAINTS & ANGELS
The stress and fear of 2020 was taking its toll on me.  I needed a relief, an outlet, something positive and hopeful to focus on.  While scrolling Pinterest I started seeing posts for Santos cage dolls.  I became fascinated.  Santos (spanish for saint) dolls were historically created for in-house altars or small villages that did not have a church.    At the  same time I also began learning about angels -- Guardian angels, Arch angels, and a host of other lesser known angels and how they interact with us.
