For all those who voted Shyann should be a boy – here he is… Shawn:
I’ve been working on rooting Shyann, but was almost positive that I wasn’t going to have enough hair to finish her (or him, as this one could be a boy easily). But, with a little bit of re-working hair, I was able to get it done… barely! Not enough t do eyelashes, but those are painted anyways. So the glue is in and this one should be born early next week
Today my blog hit 500 subscribers! hooray!
From now until midnight on Thanksgiving I am having a sale on my babies, as a celebration of Thanksgiving. I am very thankful to the Lord for the ability and joy of reborning and for you, all my wonderful customers
So the sale is 25% of any baby – what a deal, get some Christmas shopping in at a great price!
Excluding clay ooaks, this sale is just for reborns, and sale does not include shipping.
After Thanksgiving I will not be starting any new babies until after Christmas. I am going to finish the custom I am working on and am debating whether I should finish the other two or not, am undecided. After Thanksgiving I will be just spending time with my family, getting ready for Christmas, and doing some Christmas crafty stuff around the house (which I will share pictures of )
She’s naked right now (except her diaper), because she kept taking off the clothes I kept putting on her, you know how little kids like to be clothing-free. LOL jk, she actually wears 3-6 month clothing and I don’t have any that size, so she’ll have to wait til I make it to the store to do a bit of shopping for her.
I think these tear ducts turned out more realistic and subtle than Paris’, but I like both sets. It’s something that is relatively easy to do and adds just a touch of realism (every little bit adds to the “wow” factor. when all put together). She’s ready for her wig, but I will have to wait and order it next week, I’m going to use the one I had for a different baby. It’s for a custom, which I ordered the sculpt and body and eyes today and will be shipped out in the morning, hooray!
Also today I got some steel weighing beads for the custom baby and, as she won’t need them all, I will be “borning” Paris tomorrow evening. Her limbs are ready to go, she just needed a bit more body weight.
Nikki has been on hold while I’ve been working on Shyann, since she doesn’t have a body anyways and I don’t like to wait once a baby is done. I’ve been searching high and low for a place that carries bodies with mixed limbs, or a seamstress that makes custom bodies, and just found one today. Then tonight, while searching through bodies for a different baby, I discovered that I didn’t need it after all, so I have been posting and emailing folks and bugging them for no reason! So I will work on Nikki some more tomorrow night, so hopefully she will be finished and born next week.
There is quite a bit of information on how dolls (with a new look at reborns in this area, as they are so realistic) can help calm and center people with dementia, but I wanted to share a new video out:
This was actually shared by another reborn artist, but I wanted to help pass it around
Here are two other articles that I have bookmarked in the past:
