Click the photo to visit Zuri's listing! :) I just love her big brown eyes!

Zuri is named after the Disney character, Zuri, from the television show, "Jessie". My 6 year-old daughter is a huge fan of the show and wanted to name this particular doll after the adorable actress, Skai Jackson (pictured below). :)

Infant Fashion Wednesday

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

 I meant to post these items a long time ago, but better late than never, right? :) Like everyone else in the doll community, I am hooked on Naartjie! This set is so beautiful in person. I posted a progress photo of Lily Rain wearing the hat. The colors are phenomenal!

I think every doll collector and/or artist should have a bit of Sarah Louise tucked away for a rainy day. Gotta love these classic smocked designs!
This darling set by Next-- I have had for a couple of months, but never blogged it. Shame on me, lol. :) It is too cute for words!

Oh my, Rosalina has outdone themselves with this little bubble! I want it in a size newborn, but can't seem to find it. If anyone has a lead, drop me a line, pretty please? :)

And last but not least..I have had my eye on this organic set by Earlybirds for quite some time. I wish I could find the matching bunting thingy. I have the matching hat and blanket, but that's not good wants everything, lol! :)

Anyway, I hope you all are having a good Wednesday! I have two completed photo shoots that I cannot wait to share!

PLBD Skin Texture - I Heart It!

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Hola amigos! I used the PLBD skin texture tool set and I love it! I achieved fantastic results with this belly plate. The vinyl feels just the same as my other dolls-- nice & smooth, kinda like a non-sticky fruit roll-up. :) The close up shot is magnified, but the look is nowhere near that dramatic to the naked eye.

Thank you, Cassie and Rachel, for your wonderful invention! This is a fantastic breakthrough technique for the reborn doll community, and something I have wanted for years!


Still Playing Catch Up

Thursday, April 11, 2013


Good afternoon, readers! I am still catching up with the two weeks of baby work I missed while I had the flu. I love this photo of Elodie, Milaine, and their paint challenged friend, lol! :) I think they all look so cute together. I also love how Elodie and Milaine’s skin colors interact with light. Just like real brown skin tones, highlights turn to lowlights in dim light, yellow areas appear orange at dusk, the morning sun cools the warm tones, and fluorescent light adds even more warmth to the brown areas. Cool, huh? :)

Here is an updated photo of Milaine. Lovin’ this kid! :) I will give her some hair soon, I promise, Andrea. :) Someone asked if Milaine has a real name yet, and in fact, she does! :) I will reveal it when she is listed for sale. It begins with "Z". ;)

I have so many Elodie babies around here! Some are half-rooted, some are half painted. One is in the oven right now, hehe. :) Two will leave the workshop soon, one will stay with me until summer, and the other will become a baby girl. I can’t wait to see Elodie as a girl! The Elodie pictured above has the Honey Berry skin tone.

And oh yes-- my blog will be completely redesigned soon, so it may go down for a few days. Just a warning, mmkay? :) Love y’all and be back soon!

Lily Rain In Progress

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Lily Rain is the Lotti sculpt by Karola Wegerich. She is absolutely darling! When Lily’s mommy first ordered her, I was not familiar with the Lotti sculpt at all. I usually have a vision for babies before I start working on them, but with little Lily, I was lost in the sauce, lol! I broke out my sketch paper and drew a picture of Lily (that I later colored with pastels) to help create some sort of blueprint for her creation. I found photos of my daughter as a newborn, and BAM—the perfect picture helped me absorb inspiration like a sponge. Awesome? Yessssir! :)

Lily’s cute baby smirk tickles me pink! :) She is so much fun. I used my brand new “BN Cross Etching” technique around her nose to add a slight bulbous appearance. Lily’s mommy was concerned that Lily’s facial features would not work for an ethnic reborn, but I assured mom Lily was perfect for an ethnic transformation. That big little nose seals the deal, lol. :)
I still have more work to do to Lily’s hair (duh), but I hope to have her finished up mid-next week. I can’t wait to see her all dressed up in Humphrey’s Corner!
