Blood Poisoning

Aaarg! I can't believe it! I have blood poisoning, again. Four years ago, I had a nasty burn on my arm and after a few days, I saw the tell-tale tracks going up my arm. Well, for the last couple days, my hand had been really hurting. Finally this morning I noticed a thick red track going up my arm. Sure enough, doctor agreed and for the first time in over a year, he recommended a shot of antibiotics to a patient (me!).

Not sure which hurts more, the vein or the butt. I think honestly, the butt.

Finished Hair on Actual Doll (Again)

Hello again!
Here's another doll's hair, which I've finished. It's name is STORMY, (sculpted by Donna RuBert). Once the eyes are in and the body's stuffed I'll post the hole doll.

Must admit, even better than the last.

Haven't been reborning very long (4th doll) but already I am in love with the craft! With each one, I learn so much more and look forward to starting the next. The dolls are so beautiful and these are not the most expensive kits, either!

I am not the only one that is in love with the craft... my younger daughter (my mini-me is also loves these dolls and is only thrilled to adopt the ones I've finished! LOL!)

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like these dolls as much as me and enjoy seeing their progress.

I'll be posting more soon.... Please come again.

Practice, Practice, Practice!

Hello again!
Snow day and thought it would be a good day to practice the hair painting. Since I don't have a doll on which to practice, I figured my craft table would be a good place!

Here's My First Attempt

Hello again!
Was very unhappy with the way the mohair turned out, on my last doll. So, I did some looking and there are some really great artists whom paint the hair onto the doll and quite nicely!

Here's my first attempt at painting the hair on the Gena doll (from Bountiful Baby's website). The more the doll evolves, the more I really like her!
