There is a lady by the name of Amy D. Wilson that is making the claim that she owns the phrase "reborn baby doll". She has caused havoc among the doll world by scoping out and having auctions and sales removed from places such as Ebay and Etsy. This is wrong! "Reborn doll" is an artform and started long before this lady ever started doing it herself! We need to stop this! 

Please join me and many other artists and collectors and sign this!

Been Awhile!

Written by Deborah on .

Hi folks. Well its been quite awhile since I have blogged. Time just gets away from me and everytime I see how long it has been, I am shocked. I am now in the swing of things again and preparing for the International Doll and Teddy Bear Show in June in Asheville, NC.

I will be creating babies for the show as well as babies to list here on my site. That will mean a little more time in between babies, but please bear with me. They are in progress! For those who have not been to this show, I encourage you to do what you can to plan to attend. The talent here and the diversity of art dolls is incredible. I promise you you will not regret it!

Ever thought about learning this art form? Check out their website and sign up for a class! I still take classes myself. You can never learn too much and keeping up with the new techniques is a must!

Folks have asked me what sculpts I plan to do for the show. I do not reveal that information only because I want everyone to come and see new babies they havent seen here on my site. I want everything to be new and for attendees to be excited about who they might find on my table! I can tell you that there will be a variety of boy and girls, open eyed and closed eyed, a maybe an ethnic baby or two.  I want to have a table with a diverse selection.

I even plan to have a silicone baby this year! I have learned to paint silicone and I am excited about getting better and better at it. I will even be taking another silicone painting class this year at the show. I'm never afraid or too proud to learn something new or different! Here is a link to the show website with all the pertinent information. Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions you may have regarding the show. If I cannot answer them for you, I will try to find the answer.

Next Baby In Progress

Written by Deborah on .

I am currently working on Laura Tuzio Ross's "Haley". I love this kit. Her face is just adorable! I am not 100% sure if she will be a she or a he, but whatever gender, the baby will be adorable. If you want to be one of the first to be notified when a new baby comes available, join my mailing list on my home page to the left. Mailing list folks always get notified first!

Thank you.

ANNOUNCEMENT Regarding Layaway

Written by Deborah on .

I have had to make a recent business decision. It may upset some, but unfortunately, I have to do what is right for my situation and do what works for my small business. Starting immediately, I will NO LONGER be accepting layaway as a method of payment under any circumstances. It is simply too difficult to put in the time and expense only to have wait 2 months to recoup the cost. It is been my experience, unfortunately, that folks either do not follow through or they do not pay on time. I understand situations arise, but I just cannot continue to do business wondering if someone is going to pay on time when I have my own expenses that I need to cover. I apologize ahead of time to those this may upset, but it is they only way for me to be able to continue doing what I love. 

Thank you.
