  • I’d like to introduce my newest project! Leading Ladies is an ongoing project intended to  commemorate the plethora of amazing women of the past and present.

    Every Leading Lady paper doll template is available in a PDF download to assemble at home. 

    Imagine the possibilities that await! Print these over and over. Share them, and pass them around. Make them or gift them. You choose! Please make sure that you learn about these women and all that they have accomplished! NASA & SPACEX, Astronauts, Cosmonauts, Taikonauts, Spationauts, and Space Travelers all have one thing in common. Their goal is the advancement of the human race through scientific discoveries found in space.

    Keep an eye on the site, as I will be adding batches of new designs! Don’t miss a chance to download an inspiring SHERO! Cheers to these Leading Ladies! May we be them! May we raise them! May we aim for the stars with them!

    I loved playing with paper dolls as a kid. They travel easily and provide a fun craft with an engaging activity allowing imaginative play to fill hours of time with adventures! My hope is that these incredible women will inspire generations of future Leading Ladies. The sky is no longer the limit!

  • Cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya is The Second Woman in Space, The First Woman to Fly to Space Twice, & The First Woman to Perform a Spacewalk.

    Svetlana Savitskaya built her career beginning with parachuting, followed by earning her pilots license and instructing. She went on to become a world-champion Test Pilot.  She racked up several World Records she still holds today. Her reputation set her apart from other candidates in the Soviet Space Program being extraordinarily highly trained and experienced.

    Cosmonaut Savitskaya's Spacewalk during her second Space mission put an end to her male comrades suggestions that she accept the apron they prompted her her to take upon her arrival on the Space Station. Her ability to perform with precision, while under immense pressure sealed a new found level of respect for her skillset. Though she should not have needed to prove herself, she did so impecably. 

    Thank you for Leading like a Lady, Cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya!
