Prototype Lelou by Evelina Wosnjuk *SOLD*

Friday, December 5, 2014

Hi ladies! This darling baby is a prototype for Evelina Wosnjuk's new Lelou kit. I am in LOVE with this sculpt and I can't wait to reborn many many more! I was in awe of the blank kit and I just adore the way Angel turned out! Take a look at Angel's web page. She is sure to delight! I don't usually hold my reborn babies, but I can't seem to put this little girl down! :) She is THAT cute! She looks so real in person that it scares me. I just love her skin coloring and silky curls!

Angel's outfit is the "Hotchpotch Floral" designed by Naartjie. As many know, Naartjie is one of my favorite newborn clothing lines, and I just can't believe they are going out of business! I ordered this pink outfit knowing it would be my last outfit from Naartjie (sniff sniff). It is a more saturated bubblegum pink than the picture on Naartjie's website, but it is still cute cute cute! :) Goodbye, Naartjie! Thank you for all of the cute pie clothes. You will be missed.

 So as you all can see from Angel, I have been busy busy working on several new techniques. Angel has the updated Cacao Silk skin tone complete with my new *Truffle Fluff* technique, as well as my *Cloudwork Skin Patina* technique. These two depth techniques go hand and hand with the new *Flesh Stacking* technique. I guess you can call them all sister techniques. :) I did not use Angel to document the new *Truffle Fluff* technique for the tutorial, I forgot to take pictures, so the next tutorial has been delayed. I will have to wait until I have a darker brown baby ready to reborn. All the orders I have coming up are lighter brown babies, so it looks like January will be the soonest for the depth & details tutorial. Thank you all for your patience!

I am rambling because I am super busy. I am sorry if this post seems unorganized. :) My real kiddo is home from school today with the flu (poor baby, ohmigosh!) and I have two vinyl babes to root and ship. If anyone is interested in adopting the magnificent Angel Aubrielle, email me at brookenicole222 @ Until next time...:)

Rooting Eyelashes Tutorial & Box Packing

Thursday, November 20, 2014 

Hi ladies! I have a tutorial on rooting upper eyelashes for $7 USD. It is 6 page PDF. Awesome!

I also wanted to share a couple of photos of Zackary's box packing. I only have three pictures because my camera died during the packing. I didn't think to just use my phone instead-- DUH! :) Next time, I will remember that, I promise. I hope everyone is having a great holiday season. I am freezing, lol!

Zackary Michael All Finished & Going Home *SOLD*

Thursday, November 13, 2014
Whew! This little one is finally done. His mommy has been waiting a LONGGGGGGGG time. I am just so ashamed. I am sorry, KA! Love ya! ^_^ This will be the last Elodie for a while. I have a private order for a Honey Berry Elodie in Spring 2015. :) I have a feeling that little boy will be just as fabulous as Zacky! :) I never get tired of Elodie! I will post Zack's box packing photos after his mom receives him.

Infant Fashion: Baby Beau & Belle- Lovely Times Infinity!

Saturday, November 1, 2014

Lovely is an understatement! These garments are like ohmigosh pretty! I can't think of anything else to type, I am just speechless. The headband is my favorite! I thought I loved the headband from the Natalie collection, but this one is my new favorite.   I would also love to have a furry beanbag like the one in the first picture. I can't seem to find those anywhere-- for a good price, lol! I am pretty cheap when it comes to photography props. I may cave and get one though. It is absolutely gorgeous-- just like the baby model! She is too cute! Someone should sculpt her!

Savannah Marie's Box Packing

Friday, October 31, 2014

Hiya lovelies! Okay, the coast is clear and I can post these box packing pictures now. My little munchkin Savannah Marie finally arrived safely to the UK so her new mom has seen all of her goodies. :) My new double boxing method is doing a good job of keeping the hair in place. Savannah's mommy said baby arrived with neat hair, and that is exactly what I wanted to hear! :) No more wrapping babies in blankets and bubble wrap. I wish I had thought of anchoring the babies to an interior box years ago. Oh well, you live and you learn. :) I am 32 years old and still learning. That's right, 32, yikes! I had a birthday yesterday, yay me, I guess, lol! :) Happy Halloween, everyone!

Zackary's Going Home Soon *SOLD*

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

The sweet smell of success! I love it when the babies get to this point-- the finishing stage. The final stage before they get photographed and shipped off. :) This little one has been with me for a while. I just love the way he turned out. His skin tones are Honey Berry fleshstacked perfection. I didn't know how Flesh Stacking would work out with Honey Berry, but I am in LOVE! I had to be careful with the colors. He still needs a little more paint. Currently, he has too much honey and not enough berry, lol! :)

Anywhoo, you all will get to see Zack's head full of thick hair when I post his final photo shoot next week. It is awesome! Zackary will also make a cameo in my next tutorial which is what is going on in the second photo. :)

Speaking of tutorials, wow! Since yesterday, I have seen four BEAUTIFUL "work in progress" dolls created by artists who purchased my tutorials. I am so happy that these talented ladies were able to put my instructions to good use! Gorgeous work, everyone!

Here is a link to the page that lists all of my available tutorials:

UPDATE November 2, 2014: My little buddy and I had a painting party over the weekend. He looks awesome. This pic was taken before I added his textures. Now, he needs his permanent eyes and a tear duct. :) I can't wait for his final shoot tomorrow.

Infant Fashion: Next Bunny Stuff

Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Hey buttercups! I tried not to visit the Next Direct website because I knew it would cause me to have a good case of the "gimmies", but look at this adorable stuff! I want every single piece, literally. I can't believe most of these items are sold out. Well, I guess I can believe it because the pieces are adorable, but they didn't save anything for me? Gosh. :) The bunny pram thingy has been restocked, so hopefully the other pieces will be restocked also. I REALLY want the Fairy Scene dress and the Tartan Hem tunic and leggings. I also want that bunny hat. I will try to stalk the website like a hawk. ;)
