Joseph is currently on display at my work and anyone who donates $5 at the register receives an entry form to get a chance to win him in a drawing. The donations all go to St Jude’s Children Hospital, so pray he gets lots of entries
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:
Here is my current wip, a Classic Reborn, Shyann, who will be up for adoption on Tuesday (if I don’t get called into work or have to work over at all until then) for $160.
She just needs a little bit more skin tones, shading, eyebrows, painted lashes, and nails finished. Then the wig will be glued and she’ll be ready to be born!
She was going to be a custom for a little girl, but the mama chose a different sculpt, so now someone else will get the chance to get this Little One for their little girl (or themselves lol) for a birthday or Christmas present. She’ll go fast at this price!
well, I was hoping to “birth” Rowan this morning, but her last layer of hair glue isn’t dry yet, so she’ll have to wait.
I started Nikki, but she’s on hold for the moment while I am working on Shyann. I’ll post some pictures once there’s something to show
I am almost done rooting rowan, human hair, it’s looking good Pictures when done!
