New Kit "Bailey"!

It has been awhile... okay... a LONG while, since I last posted here.  I actually completely forgot about my blog until I updated my webpage last week and saw the link to it.  I was ill for quite some time, and during that time, I was one of those people who got bit by the forums and Facebook bug and neglected everything else.  Alas, I am finally getting back into the groove of things and looking forward to improving my skills.

I have just brought out a new kit named, "Bailey".  This kit is a Special Limited Edition, (only 500 kits, as opposed to my regular editions, which are larger).  Bailey was unveiled at the International Doll Show in Asheville, North Carolina.  Due to the small edition size, I do not have any dealers for this kit. The kit is available on my website only, at www.nataliescholl.com/Bailey.

I am currently working on another couple of projects and hope to be able to share some news and sneak peek photos soon!  For now, please enjoy a few photos of one of the Bailey prototypes, done by Evon Nather.


So Much for the New Year's Resolution!

I just reread my last post and feel so ashamed at the fact that I wanted to post more on here for my New Year's Resolution and here we are entering the fourth week of July for my first post since!!  I guess some things never change!

My house is still under construction somewhat, (15 months and counting now), but the projects left are all the small, fine detailed ones mainly.  On the up side, it is inhabitable and on the down side... I tend to work slow on fine details.

This brings me onto the subject of sculpting!  :)  I am still working on a custom sculpt.  I am very close to finishing now and am anxious to put the final result together and do a final photo shoot.  Once she goes off to her "mommy", I will get hard at work on my next kit as well as a mini ooak that I will likely list for sale on Ebay.  If not there, I will list it directly on my website.  I hope to be able to post again soon with pictures of the latest little one here.

For now I am off to work on the little munchkin!




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....
