My name is Carol Linacre, I'm a former Pediatric Dentist, now full time Mom, Doll Collector and Artist of One of a Kind custom dolls.

All my dolls have my heart in them. They are a labor of love. I design and make them real, thinking about their own beauty and the character I’d like them to be. Each one of them, is lovingly created to be unique. No other customization I make, ends up to be exactly like another, they are really a ONE OF A KIND.

Thank you for joining me in this journey!

For the love of dolls,

It's a Doll Affair

"I purchased a custom American Girl doll from Carol, and she is such a pleasure to work with. As a doll collector I am always looking for a special doll to add to my collection/AG doll family. She is the best American Girl face re-painter I have come across. Her passion is seen through her technique, and while this is a business you can tell that she really cares about all the dolls she works on. I would 100% recommend purchasing from It’s a Doll Affair to anyone who is interested. You will not regret it!"
