I finished my custom sculpts and have been recovering from another virus of some sort, so have been away from the computer recently. I am anxious to get to work on a new little one to offer for sale in the beginning of the new year!
I do hope you all have a wonderful and safe holiday season!
Hope to be sharing some photos soon...
I just finished limbs for another little one last night. They still need to be sanded and painted, but they are finally sculpted! I also finished another two babies a little while ago and since I had them here at the same time, I took a few photos of them together. I'll share one of them with you here... a sound little sleeper and a cranky little fellow. It looks a bit like a fist fight is about to errupt in this picture though! :)
I have had a couple of people email me in the last few days asking where I have disappeared to! I apologize for not writing in my blog as of late. I have been working many long hours on some custom sculpts trying to get caught up here. I have made lots of progress with them, but still have a ways to go yet. I do hope to have a new baby available in the coming weeks for sale. I also have plans to finally get at working on a kit doll. So, for all the reborners out there that have been asking when one will be available... with any luck, this winter!
For those of you on my mailing list... do not worry, you are still on my list! You have NOT missed any dolls! I have not had any available for awhile. :) I do appreciate you checking in and your continued interest! It is always good to hear from everyone.
In the next couple of days I will be sanding and painting this little girl and then she will be ready to be outfitted. I shall share her with you all as soon as I can!
After an extremely hot week near the beginning of the summer, it has cooled right off here. It is unusually cool for our summers here, but it does make it easier to sculpt... so I won't complain about the coolness from that point of view! :) I have been enjoying the flowers and green grass that this summer has to offer as opposed to the burnt grass and desolate flowerbeds that are usually common this time of year from the heat. Here are a few pictures I have taken in the last little while...
I will write again soon!
I will post pictures soon....
Please welcome Emilio...

and finally to this....
At this point, I still had to finish putting that eye on the left side in and get the cheek to match the other one, among a few other things. One day I woke up, looked at it, and decided it was just not realistic enough and destroyed the whole thing. What a waste of many long days of work that was!! Now I look back at some of these pictures and wish I had kept features from all of them. :)
I am finally making good progress with this head though, and am hoping that in the end I will like it enough to have it reproduced into a kit doll. I will keep you posted as I finish up this head. I hope to finish it this week, but if I change my mind again on the face then it definitely won't be this week! :)
I have an idea of what I would like this one to be like when it is done, and hopefully that idea will surface in this clay. :)
I will write again when I've made some progress.
and number 19:
In this picture, the ones on the right and left are in the wrong outfits, but I liked this picture so much that I am posting it as they are... mixed up. The little one in the middle looks like she is squirming with all her might to get herself infront of the other two. :)
I am just finishing up numbers 17 and 18... they are almost ready for photos. I will post a picture of those two soon. When those two are finished and off, then I just have two left to complete. It is hard to believe I am nearing the end of this edition, yet, not so hard since it has been such a long process. What a great learning experience it has been all around.
I just finished making their diapers... so they are lying on my bed waiting for their arms to be sewn on, but wearing their diapers. Each of them has a different coloured diaper so that I know which one is which. :)
After I finish these three, I will only have four left to do. Two people have given up their spots, so I will still have two left here to do, but since they are not yet sold, I can look forward to sculpting for now.
I will write again soon with pictures of these three, (numbers 13-15).
I have spent my time doing the cleaning I neglected while working on all these little ones, as well as doing some knitting for my niece and nephew. I am a beginner knitter, so I work slowly... but I have made great progress, (for me), and hope I can finish off these two sweaters before these little ones outgrow them! I have enjoyed my time working on them.
I am now feeling renewed and ready for the rest of these resins.
This week brought about a lot of activity surrounding my preemie. I had many emails about him. I was not at all prepared for this to happen. He was just a little guy that I knew was flawed, but I wanted to finish him anyways. I wanted to see what he would be like when he was all painted and put together. I discovered that I love his size. I also discovered that there are others out there that love him, just as I do. :)
Anyways, here are some pictures of him...
More to come...
These two were a little difficult to photograph due to lighting issues. Number 1 in the edition has medium brown hair, (it looks mostly dark in my pictures), and number 2 is actually blonde... for some reason she shows up looking like she has strawberry coloured hair. The lighting issues were due to the weather. Almost every single day up until Christmas, it snowed here. I can't remember ever having so much snow so early in the season. Normally we are hoping for a white Christmas... this time, there was no question it would be. Following that, it got very mild with heavy rains and we experienced flooding. It sure has been a strange season so far!
I am presently working on numbers 3 and 4 in the edition now. I find I like working on two at a time while I paint, because it allows me to keep working while one is drying. Hopefully soon I will have pictures of two more to post!
Again, sorry for neglecting my blog. :)
