Norndolls and Norn Beanies


Don is the proud owner of a hand made Butterfly Norn Norndoll (shown left), designed especially by her good friend Data back in May 2003. She also now has three official Norndolls - a purple Blueberry Norn from America (right), one from Australia, and a green Norn from England (also right) - measured at around 6.5 inches tall each.


Don owns the full collection of Creatures posters: the four Creatures 2 posters and one Creatures 3 poster.

Other Creations

Don's Clay Creatures

Clay Creatures

Back in 1998 Don, being the artistic type, even had a go at making a few Creatures 2 Norns of her own. The small tribe of clay creatures she produced were around 2cm high and included purple, brown and blue Norns. It wasn't long before she decided to try her hand at Grendels and Ettins as well in order to complete the miniature scene. See right.
