Hello again! There was class today. Got our tests back and I am a bit disappointed with myself. I got an 84% which totally trashes my "A" average. Hopefully I can bring it back up, again.

Psychology Today

Hope the professor shows. She cancelled the first class, without letting anyone know beforehand. Then again, her class was cancelled, last minute, again. It's not like we live on campus!!! Some of travel to this school. Today we are having terrible weather; freezing rain. Better not be another pointless trip.... If we do have psychology today, we get our midterms back. Then we take our mastery. Wish me luck!!!

Hello again! I have finished another doll that I think I will try to sell, in a week or two. I plan on waiting a couple weeks to be sure the doll is ok. Sometimes the doll grows shinier over time and if this happens, I want to apply another layer of matte finish (but I have quite a few already, this is just a safety precaution. I don't want any unhappy collectors).

Her Name is Emily. She has blue eyes. Her hand-rendered hair is a light brown and was painstakingly drawn, one hair at a time. She has detailed lightly finger and toe nail details that is subtle and doesn't look like she just returned from the nail salon. Her skin looks 3D and has light mottling and veining, as a toddler normally would. Her Blue dress is handmade and is one of the two outfits she'll be shipped with. Emily is a fraternal twin to another doll I also just completed (another Stormy kit). I'll be listing the twin separately and at a separate time, but you can see her at the bottom of this post.

I will definitely let you all know when the listing is on Ebay!!! Please stayed tuned. Thank you for stopping by. Please come again.

Had A Kit Kickin' Around

Hi there! Since I had a kit for "Ladybug" kicking around and some time on my hands so I decided to try to reborn the doll and see if I can avoid all that vinyl shine that you can see on my other two "models". This kit is a slightly different kit from the toddler doll I've been posting lately. I think I like them both, equally. I worked on it for a few hours yesterday and today and this is what I have so far. Hope you like!

A Piece For The Client

Hello again!
Well, I have made this fun PJ outfit for my new customer and new owner of two vampire reborn dolls.

This new customer sent me a bunch of fun "reclaimed" fabrics from old (but still in GREAT SHAPE) clothes and requested I make lots of fun outfits from them.

This PJ outfit was made from an old pair of Gap PJ bottoms. It was not easy to squeeze all this out and had to creatively hide some seams in the top's shirt.

A special thank you to my reborn doll, Holly. Great job helping to show the outfits!

Made of 100% cotton fabric.
Thank you for stopping by. Please come again.

Took My Midterm and Decided To Celebrate

Hello again!
Took my midterm exam for psychology, yesterday. Today I wanted to celebrate and design something new for the 18" dolls (since I have a new customer interested in some 18" doll clothes, it'd be a good time).

Here's a kimono I designed, minus the ties which are in the front. I plan on making a couple changes but am over all happy with the design.

Thank you for stopping by. Please come again.
