Fine-Tuning the Supermodel

Monday, March 25, 2013

Some have asked about baby Milaine, and I promise, she is still going to eBay, lol!  :) Above is an updated progress photo with a list of things she needs before she can get her hair rooted. Milaine’s eyebrow is shiny because I snapped the picture while her paint was still wet. I was in the process of painting her smoothing layers, and well, the layers of paint must air dry before baking, or baby will turn out shiny. I apply multiple smoothing layers, and each layer takes three hours to air dry (plus baking & cooling time!).

Milaine’s Neapolitan Chiaroscuro (aka the baby glow) is taking longer because I decided to give her my darkest Cacao Silk skin tone. The darker the baby, the longer she takes. ;) Cacao Silk will look wonderful with Milaine’s little peach outfit from Germany. I can’t wait to get her dressed up, but patience is the name of the game. When I finish with Joaquin, I will get back to Milaine. These little bundles can be tedious, but I love this girl! She's been very cooperative during her stay in the BN Workshop, lol! :) 

Joaquin In Progress

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Hi everyone! I am running a bit behind schedule as I had to take several days off. I came down with a nasty cold/flu thingy and did not want to touch the babies during that time. No worries, I am germ-free now, lol! :) I wanted to share a picture of little Joaquin. I hope to have him finished up real soon. I started on his hair rooting before I got sick, and now I have to finish it up. He is so precious! I love the Elodie sculpt!

Joaquin will wear this delicious ensemble chosen by his parents. It comes from Next, a European department store that is all the rage in the doll community lately. I am so glad Joaquin's parents turned me on to Next! I have ordered so many adorable things and well, you all know me, I will continue to order until my finger can click no mo', lol!  Next is awesome! Joaquin also has an amazing corduroy coat from Baby Gap that I can't wait to photograph.

I will be back soon! Milaine is still going to eBay. The cold really threw me off schedule, but I will finish her after Joaquin. Thank you everyone for your patience!

Retail Therapy & No More Reborn Sales

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

My husband passed away two years ago today and needless to say, I am a bit sulky. I knew I would have a hard time today, so I made sure I ordered goodies to cheer me up. :)

My kit stash was low on sleepers, so I picked out three sleeping kits. The Heavenly kit by Nicole Russell (left) is just… wow! I am just speechless over her detailed and flawless design. I am usually eager to reborn blank kits, but with this one, I am afraid to touch her, lol! I have not decided on a skin tone for her yet, but when I do, there will be no stopping me. ;)

The Khian kit by Tina Kewy (right) is a kit I have wanted for a long time. I have been working on a skin tone that is much lighter than Honey Berry. It is called Toffee Rose, and I think Khian will look wonderful with that skin tone. I also have a Lincoln kit by Laura Lee Eagles on the way. :)

No More Reborn Sales 

I have received emails regarding future dollie sales, but I have to stop selling reborn dolls. I tried making the blog private to minimize advertising, but some on the layaway waiting list had trouble accessing the private blog, so I reopened it. As I mentioned before, I accepted Miliane’s prototype job as a favor to my friends in Deutschland, and I will have Milaine for sale soon. But other than that, I don’t expect to have more dolls for sale. I am only making dolls for those on the list through 2014. Thank you all for your interest, I truly appreciate it, and if anything changes, you all will be the first to know! :) :)


Infant Fashion: Nature’s Purest & Beautiful Baby Boy

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

I am loving these pieces by Nature’s Purest!  Well, I love everything on the website, but I had to narrow it down.  This outfit will look great on Porsha by Romie Strydom. If you have never heard of Nature’s Purest, I beg you to visit their website. You will fall in love like I did. Trust me, lol!

And speaking of love—I have always loved this famous photo of Mother Theresa and her little friend. I think the baby is so beautiful, and I am dreaming of a reborn kit sculpted in his likeness. Ohhh, how I wish I could sculpt, lol! :)
