A Box Opening That Could Have Gone Wrong!

Written by Deborah on .

Hi folks.

A fellow artist sent me a link yesterday that I would like to share.

Apparently, someone purchased a baby from me at the International Doll and Teddy Bear Show and decided to resell the baby on a doll forum. Not a problem at all. Unfortunately, there was a mishap with a bottle of liquid that was in the box with the baby. The bottle was not sealed and it leaked out everywhere. Thank goodness the lady that sold him packed him very well and he was not damaged during shipment.

I would like to share that box opening video with you. I am so happy for the new lady that adopted one of my babies and that the baby arrived safe and sound. I am also so appreciative of the nice comments that she left regarding my work and so happy that the baby has another good, loving home!

Here is the link to the video:

Enjoy!

Just a Few Things to Mention

Written by Deborah on .

Hi folks.

First and foremost, I would like to say that my heart is so saddened by the horrific event that has taken place in Vegas last night. My heart just sank when I heard the news. It hit me especially hard because just last weekend my son was there. This could have so easily been him. This could have so easily been me at home waiting to hear if he was dead or alive. My stomach turns just thinking about it. My heart hurts for those who lost their lives or the lives of loved ones at the hands of this evil being. Prayers for all those affected.

Secondly, I would like to remind everyone that Deborah's Darlings will be closed Thursday, October 5 - Monday, October 16. Any babies adopted during this time will not ship until Tuesday, October 17. I will be available to answer messages, however, it will be in the evenings only.

Lastly, let's discuss the rooting situation. I announced a little while back that I would not be rooting babies anymore and that the only way I could continue to do what I love would be to go to strictly painting heads. Fact is, I have a bad shoulder. Rooting takes a toll on it something terribly to the point it gets terribly inflamed and the throbbing pain becomes unbearable. When I announced this, I had a lot of folks disheartened by the announcement. I apologize to those that do not care for the painted hair. I wont say 100% that I will never root another head. I think there may be a time or two where I may just decide to do one, but if I do, it will be at a pace that will allow me to do so without causing too much inflamation. Basically what that means is as soon as I feel discomfort, I will stop and move on to something else until it has time to rest. Up to this point, I have just continued to push through sometimes to the point of tears. I refuse to let myself get to that point again. That being said, you may see one pop up here and there that has rooted hair, but for the most part , my babies will have painted hair.

Thank you,

Deborah

I am currently working on the adorable Realborn "Charles" sculpt". I am hoping to have him/her completed over the next week or so.  I am not sure yet if the baby will be a boy or a girl. Right now he is looking more like a boy, but we will see once I am finished!

I also wanted to note that Deborah's Darlings will be closed from Thursday, October 5 - Monday, October 16. I will be doing some traveling at this time.

Saying Goodbye to Rooting Hair

Written by Deborah on .

Importantannouncement

Hi folks.

As many of you know, I have had issues with my shoulder for quite some time now. Rooting hair has become very difficult and painful. About 2 years ago, I had to learn the art of painted hair to give my shoulder a break from time to time. I learned to love it and so glad I learned.For the past week, I have been rooting a baby girl (Eirlys by Alicia Toner). It has been a long, tediuos process.

As I am am rooting today, the pain has become almost unbearable. Not only is it causing me pain, but I feel it is keeping me from putting forth my best work. I have come to the decision that this baby will be my last rooted baby. It will allow me to continue the art form I love and to do it without the pain. It will also allow me to become better at the art of painted hair. It's a win win for everyone.

I know not everyone is a fan of painted hair.Everyone has different likes and dislikes. I have pondered over this for almost 2 years now, and I now realize this is the best decision for me. Thank you for understanding.

Please look for this new baby girl to come available soon!

Thank you,

Deborah
