Everything is on hold

Everything is on hold...and I don't like it. I really want to finish up Aurelia (my current Caucasian girl - she just needs stuffed, weighted and "born"), work on my Hispanic toddler, and start on my AA baby. But I haven't been able to.

I'm just too tired and my wrists hurt too bad. Not meaning to whine, it's just a fact. Since Thursday before last, every day I have been cleaning where I work after work. Our regular janitor is on vacation and I volunteered for two reasons: 1. As a manager, I feel it's my responsibility to help out when it's needed. 2. The extra income will provide for my family's Christmas presents.

But there's a light at the end of the tunnel! Tonight is my last night cleaning...sorry, apartment, you're out of luck. lol just kidding. Janitoring (is that a word?) every night at my work, of course, not cleaning forever. I'll still be (occasionally) cleaning our apartment and helping the cooks (if they need it) clean on Friday nights, when our janitor usually has off.

Monday and Tuesday are my next days off, so I will be getting to do some doll work during those two days :) hooray!

Her hair is finally done! She will be born soon :) and up for adoption. If you like her, grab her, because I have had several people asking after her and she'll be nabbed quickly.

I need to get more soft stuffing, as she is 1/4 limbs, but more pictures up when she's born

October 15th is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day

October 15th is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day.

1 in 4 women lose a baby to miscarriage, stillbirth or infant loss. Every year, in the US alone, about 20,000 babies die in their first month of life.

At 7pm in each time zone candles will be lit creating a wave a light in memory of these children. Sadly, the grief of child loss far outlasts the sympathy. Parents are silenced by society deeming this subject as taboo.

But I will not be. Pass this along to everyone to help raise awareness. Posted in memory of my son Joshua Isaiah, in Heaven, lost at 4 months due to miscarriage.

Here is a picture of the reborn I made (my second reborn) I made in remembrance of my baby boy. This is Isaiah (I gave him Joshua's middle name):

October 08, 2011 Newsletter is out! Check it out at

The Christmas season is getting closer and my clearance is still going on, but only until December! Now is the time to get that early Christmas shopping done and surprise someone special with a one-of-a-kind collector doll for only a fraction of the price!

Franklin, Rori, and Joseph are still available for adoption, and now there is a new addition to the nursery!

I am proud to present my newest baby, Kemaya, just up for adoption today! She wears newborn size clothing, is rooted with kit mohair, and has 1/4 arms and 3/4 legs. Such a sweetie!! Kemaya was created from the sold-out Destiny sculpt by Michele Barrow. Her adoption price will be $150 (which includes shipping in the usa).




And now a sneak peek!...
This is an opened-eyed Caucasian baby that I'll be finishing rooting this month, she will be $200, and done in the beginning of November.

Happy Fall everyone!!

WIP reborn reborn

Here is my latest WIP, a reborn reborn lol. I originally painted this baby with air dry paints, but stripped her last week and now painted her with Genesis Heat Set Paints (GHSP). I've used GHSP since the beginning, when I first started reborning, and can get so much more detail and "life" with GHSP versus air dry paints. Originally a boy, this Little One lacked realism and was just too... plain, dollish, blah...whatever word works best to describe how he was. Now she is a darling little girl in the works.

Hair will take a while, but more pictures when she's born :)

This sculpt is Joyful Heart by Lee Middleton and this is the second time I've reborn it. Here's a peek at the first one:
