I cannot believe it's been 7 months since my last post here!  Wow!  I guess one of my New Year's resolutions for my business will be to make a conscious effort not to forget about my blog!  :)

The world of the internet surely can take you away.  I signed up for a Facebook Fan Page and between updating that, answering emails that I get through three different addresses and my facebook mail, updating webpages, keeping up with orders for kits... you can see how time escapes me.

Ontop of all of this, I have been renovating my first home for the last 7 months.  Things with that are finally starting to come to a close... just in time to host some Christmas dinners.  I'm looking forward to enjoying time in a house without wearing construction boots!

What has been happening with Art Dolls by Natalie Scholl these last months?  I introduced my second kit, "Ryan", a limited edition of 1000 kits.  Pre-orders began on July 19th and within 50 hours, I had completely sold out and my dealers sold out shortly thereafter.  I was definitely not prepared for this kind of response!  This production took far longer than I had ever hoped for or imagined.  The kits only arriving to me this past week.  I, (along with my mom), have been busy inspecting each and every piece before sorting, packing and shipping.  I have decided that having this many kits come in at this time of the year is extremely stressful.... and if I can avoid it in the future, I will do so!!  I have so many things to do!!  I'm just focusing on the day when the kits are all shipped out and I can relax.

I have also been working on a custom order and have begun sculpting a head for my next kit.  With things the way they are at the moment, both of these projects are moving very slowly.  I hope things will be able to pick up again in the new year.

For now, I'll leave you with pictures of little Ryan...

We also have a new little one in the family.  Please meet baby Charlotte...

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season.  Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukka, Happy Kwanzaa... or whatever you may celebrate!


Jayden Kits

I have been away from blogging for awhile due to many things happening all at once! I am in the process of moving and renovations at the moment and am processing lots of kit orders for "Jayden". I will not be having any ooaks available until I get my studio set up in my new place, as I am working on some custom orders at the moment as well.

The prototypes for "Jayden" arrived last week and turned out absolutely wonderful! They are now at the reborners' and I am anxiously awaiting pictures of them! For now, I will post some pictures of the blank kits for you to see. If you are still wanting to order one of these kits, I would suggest ordering soon as there are only about 90 kits left now and seem to be selling fast since the prototypes came out.
For more ordering information, please go to: http://www.nataliescholl.com/Jayden.html
Here are some pictures of the blank, unpainted kit....


Tiny Teddy #3

It has been a LONG time since I've been on my blog! Things here have been so busy that I have forgotten to come on and update. I will be back on soon to update, but for now I will share a listing that I have just placed on Ebay...

I have just listed the second baby in my "Tiny Teddies" series. Please meet little Clara...

Jayden Pre-Orders

Pre-ordering is now set up for Jayden. If you would like to place an order, or would like more information/pictures, please go to: http://www.nataliescholl.com/Jayden.html



I am happy to announce my first kit will be named, "Jayden". I have heard back from the manufacturing company with costs, so I am now free to move on with the orders. I am working on finishing my order/payment page and will hopefully have it up in the next couple of days so that orders can be made directly from there. Production will take approximately 3 months from the time that the original is received at the factory.

I will update again when the page is up and ready. Thank you for your patience!


Nearly Finished!

I am waiting for the last piece for my kit baby to bake. I am still contemplating doing a belly plate for this baby. I think it might be cute to have one, but I'm not sure if that many people would like one to make it worthwhile producing one. I have had so much fun creating this larger baby. I love making the mini ones, but every now and then it is fun to do something different. Hopefully I will have some pictures of the whole baby to share soon!


To Come...
