Back from Vacation!

Written by Deborah on .

Hi folks. I am officially back from vacation! I had a wonderful trip to Florida and took an amazing cruise to the Bahamas with my family. I had an awesome time and a much needed break! The cruise was so relaxing and the islands we visited were nothing short of paradise. The beauty of the islands, the crystal clear blue water, and the amazing cruise staff just made for a wonderful time. I'm already thinking about my next one! LOL!

I will begin painting again today. My youngest is still out of school until the end of the month, so it will still be a few weeks before I am back full time. It is my plan to go ahead and start preparing for next year's show. I will be working on show babies as well as babies for the website. The only change that brings is slightly longer periods between babies coming available on my site. Last year, it was very stressful waiting until January to get started. If I start now, things should go much more smoothly and with a lot less stress!

I am currently starting Alicia Toner's Eirlys kit. This has been one that a few have requested that I do. She is a cutie and I hope to have her completed within the next few weeks.

Ok, back to work!

Plugging Away Slowly and Vacation Time (Deborah's Darlings Closed)!

Written by Deborah on .

Well folks, I have been painting now for awhile. Right now I have two babies in progress. They are coming along, but slowly. With the kids being out of school, my available time is pretty much cut in half over the summer. I do try and get up early so I can get a few hours in before they wake up. I am hoping to have them completed within the next two weeks.

I do want to mention that Deborah's Darlings will be closed from Friday, August 4 - Monday, August 14. I will be on vacation at this time. I want to mention that for part of that time, approximately 4 days, I may not have an access to internet. I believe those dates without internet will be from about Sunday, August 6 - Thursday, August 10. If I do have internet, I will probably only be able to access it in the late evenings. I will do my best during this time to answer all emails and messages during that time in the evenings. Also, any babies adopted between Friday, August 4 - Monday, August 14 will not ship out until Tuesday, August 15.

I still have a few babies left from the International Doll and Teddy Bear show that have not yet been adopted including 3 cloth body silicones!

Talk soon,


Back to Normal and IDTS 2018!!!

Written by Deborah on .

I am finally back from the International Doll and Teddy Bear Show! I have to say, this was the best show yet and I had a blast! Thank you to everyone that came out! I saw many familiar faces, met new ones, and finally got to put faces to the names I knew from communicating on various doll forums and Facebook. I think eveyone had a great time!

Did you miss it this year? No worries! The International Doll and Teddy Bear Show will be back next year and will be bigger and better than ever! Next year the show will be in sunny Orlando, Florida! It will be twice if not 3 times the size and the location is amazing! Mark your calenders now so you don't miss the chance to meet and and see the amazing creations from artists all over the country and abroad! I have more information regarding this show here: 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

I am slowly getting back into the swing of things. I really stressed myself out the last few months preparing for the IDTS 2017. I have decided that I am going to go ahead and start preparing for next year by setting babies aside here and there for the show. That way, I am not scrambling to get things done at the last minute. Today, I will begin painting again. I haven't decided who to start on yet, but I have some gorgeous kits and I am excited to get started again!
