So, Who is Ree Medina and what is Tipsy Teacup Creations?
You mean to tell me the whole world does not know? Ahem, yes that's jumping the gun a bit I suppose isn't it, tsk on me!
Well then, you must pull up a cozy chair, have a friendly cup of tea with me, and let me tell you!
I was born 1973 in Philadelphia, PA., to two incredible parents whom blessed me with the most beautiful childhood a little girl could hope for. My father was a lifer in the Navy and just about the most amazing man you could ever meet. My mother is just as amazing and one of the most caring moms I could ask for. My Dad was such a creative man which is where I believe I inherited my artistic gift from and my Mom never passed up the chance to play dolls with me when I was a little girl which is where I believe my strong love for dolls comes from. Put those two together and here I am as Tipsy Teacup Creations.
As stated above, I truly do believe my heritage contributed a great bit to my creative skills and love of dolls, but I have to tell you a secret. I came across doll making accidentally. Yes, can you believe it, I said accidentally. Let me tell you the story, after my darling Siamese cat Mable decided to attack one of my childhood handmade dolls I frantically decided I had to figure out a way to fix her. I started to thoroughly look at her and examine how she was made. I had it in my head that I would not stop until she was back to her original glory and, you know what, I did it. I had her back to her precious self in no time. Needless to say, after that magical repair I was hooked on soft sculpture and the art of doll making. I have extensively studied the soft sculpture art form and have self taught myself since that fateful day in 2004. I even managed to make friends with a sewing machine or two. Over this past year I have taken several online doll classes which have been amazing. I will never stop learning or trying to improve my skills no matter how many years go by.
While I do so love all kinds of art and dolls the art of soft sculpture has quickly become my artistic outlet and sole creative passion. I am thrilled to be able to relive my childhood, as well and my little boy's childhoods, and share my works with you! You will notice that I have a huge range of interests which, without a doubt, shine through via my creations.
Now, lets talk about the name Tipsy Teacup creations! A very fun and interesting name is it not, and it just could not fit me better. Truly, I am tipsy enough for two people! My hair color may change several times a year but under it all I am true natural sandy blond and loving it! Next to that, life really does tend to throw major tips our way doesn't it, but somehow someway we manage to keep that pile of teacups stacked, amen to that! Last but not least, I had a beautiful childhood full of smiles which contained many a beautiful tea party with my dollies inspired by none other then the Mad Hatter himself. These memories are priceless and I love that I am able to let them live even more through my creations. So you see, it was the perfect choice!
I now reside in beautiful Florida with my amazing husband Michael, our siamese kitty Mable, our Pekingese Dewce, our American Bulldog/Pitt Banshee, my guinea pig Poo, and my three fancy rats Moses, Ramsey, and Egypt.
Dedication to my Dad
I would like to dedicate this site to an amazing and caring man whom God has so graciously blessed me with knowing since my first breath of life. He was, and will always be, my hero, my bestfriend, my Dad. He is the inspiration behind so much of my work and so many of my smiles. There will never be another like him on this Earth and I miss him so very dearly, but I know he is with me always.
Me Daddy loves me
A song I made up and have sung to him since age 3, and a song I will sing to him the rest of my life.
I love you Daddy!
