Dolls So Beautiful reborn forum

This forum is my home, where I can share my life, especially my love for creating reborns (that most people in my non-online life don’t understand, though some of them try). If you create reborn dollss, collect them, make clothes or other items for them, or are just curious about them, then this post is for you.

Dolls So Beautiful has been a fairly small group (in the lower hundreds in comparison to the higher hundreds or even more of big groups), but we’re ready to share with you and I think you’ll love it here. So here’s your invite:

New plan

ok, I started the twins and then just lost interest. I think it’s because twins take so much longer and so they take a lot of patience. Also I was getting a little… not really frustrated, but just losing interest and the joy of it… because, even though they are twin sculpts, my mind sees them going in different directions and I find myself wanting to paint them differently. And so, since they are not customs and I can create them however I please, I’m going to. No longer will they be twins, but two babies, and I have no idea of the final outcome. I’m going to create the awake one first, simply because he/she is the one currently on my desk and ready for another paint wash. I’ll keep you all updated! :)

Hello 2012

Happy New Year everyone! It’s now 2012! I made 10 +? babies in 2011, which isn’t bad considering I’m working full time and have a family. I know 10 for sure, but the other two I’m not sure if I did after Christmas or right before, so it might have been 12. The first baby was too long ago to remember, but the last baby of this year was Kirabo. The first babies of this year will be tied, since I am starting a set of twins :) Pictures to come in a day or two!

In which both babies are still not ready and I fail

Well, here it is December and neither of the babies are ready yet. So much for having them ready by the 1st of the month. Kirabo is finally rooted, but it will take the rest of the week to get the other layers of glue and dried in between, so she won’t be ready to be adopted until right before Christmas. And the toddler is still being painted (working on her more today), finding it difficult to find just the right tones for her. On the other hand, there are several products in my store now :) Lots more coming when I get some inspiration. If you have any ideas, leave me a comment and I’ll make it. http://www.zazzle.com/edenslittleones

 

 

Blogging is not my art

Ok, I’m not witty or cute or fabulous, so I’m really not that great at blogging…or even coming up with a title for each post (see a href=”http://edenslittleones.blogspot.com/2011/10/aurelia-is-rooted.html”/a for just one example). I don’t blog every day or even every week, so it’s understandable that my readers aren’t perched on the edge of their seat, awaiting my next post.

But lately I’ve been reading a few blogs and, while some I don’t even make it through a single post before nodding off, some are very witty and cute and fabulous, each in their own way. And after reading a few posts from these blogs, my brain begins to think that it, too, can do posts that are lol funny or amazingly wonderful.

The problem is…it’s an illusion. An in-my-head show of words and lights and ideas that never sound the same once written down. And so, though I may blog more often for a while, don’t expect greatness from this blog, only the mediocre ramblings of a reborn artist.

It’s a boy! … I think

Everything is on hold

/Everything is on hold…and I don’t like it. I really want to finish up Aurelia (my current Caucasian girl – she just needs stuffed, weighted and “born”), work on my Hispanic toddler, and start on my AA baby. But I haven’t been able to.

I’m just too tired and my wrists hurt too bad. Not meaning to whine, it’s just a fact. Since Thursday before last, every day I have been cleaning where I work after work. Our regular janitor is on vacation and I volunteered for two reasons: 1. As a manager, I feel it’s my responsibility to help out when it’s needed. 2. The extra income will provide for my family’s Christmas presents. br /br /But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel! Tonight is my last night cleaning…sorry, apartment, you’re out of luck. lol just kidding. Janitoring (is that a word?) every night at my work, of course, not cleaning forever. I’ll still be (occasionally) cleaning our apartment and helping the cooks (if they need it) clean on Friday nights, when our janitor usually has off.

Monday and Tuesday are my next days off, so I will be getting to do some doll work during those two days :) hooray!

Aurelia is rooted!
