Website and Facebook

Written by Deborah on .

We are still working hard to update my website. Looks like it may be a few weeks before everything is ready. Until then, this current website will continue to operate. The new website will look very similiar to this one, but with the new upgrades some things will have to be done differently. It wll be a learning process for me, but at some point it will all come together.

 

I have also been having issues with my facebook. Some folks claim they have messaged me and I am not receiving their messages. I am not sure what is going on with that, but you can always contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or use the Contact Me page. I will say I had to delete and block some folks from my friends list recently for a few reasons. One, the use of profanity. Anyone that knows me personally knows I cannot stand it and will not tolerate it. I find nothing funny about dropping the "F Bomb" and I don't want it on my screen. Second, as I have discussed here in the past, some folks have bordered on the line of harrassment in asking me to sell them a baby for $200 or some other rediculous amount. I will reply to them once or twice, but if it continues, then I delete. Begging won't change my mind and I find it to be very irritating.

 

I have had 2 folks contact me asking why I deleted them. I dont know what happened but they were not people I wanted to delete. Somehow part of my list has disappeared. If you are one of those folks, I apologize and please dont hesitate to ask me to refriend you.

 

Okay, I am going back to working on my Noah Schick Reva Sculpt. I am really trying hard to blog more often. Some days time just gets away from me!

Why Painted Hair?

Written by Deborah on .

Some folks have asked why I have gone to painting hair on some of my babies. Well there are a few reasons. Number one, I have a constant issue with rotator cuff tendonitis in my right shoulder. Anyone that has dealt with this knows how painful it can be and how easily aggravated the shoulder can get. The bones in my right shoulder are not aligned like they should be which makes me very prone to the tendonitis. When I told my doctor what aggravated it, he told me to stay away from rooting my babies. Well I understand where he is coming from, but I am too stubborn to give up rooting all together. I will, however, cut down significantly so my shoulder does not get so aggravated. Secondly, painted hair has become one of the new reborning techniques. Before issues with my shoulder, I was determined never to paint hair. However, once I realized how aggravating it was to my shoulder, I knew I had no choice. Once I learned, I loved it. There is just a look you can achieve with painted hair (a more newborn look) that you cannot get with rooted hair. That of course is my opinion and not everyone feels that way. I look at it as a way to help my shoulder and keep doing what I love, plus keeping up with the new techniques. Making these dolls is a lot like technology. It changes constantly and to be competitive you have to keep up.

 Many folks think painting hair is the easy or lazy way. Well I have news for them! It takes me about 20 hours to paint hair on a baby...about the same time to root and sometimes longer. In no way is it easier. It is just different...but much easier on my shoulder!

 Well, schools are closed to day and we are looking at getting a possibility of 8" of snow today! Looks like a great day to sit at my desk by my big office window and watch it fall as I work hard at my Gundrun Legler "Max" sculpt! I cannot wait until this baby is done. I am not sure if it will be a girl or boy yet, but as soon as he/she is ready, I will send out a newsletter. If you aren't signed up, you can do so on my home page on the left column. I promise I never share your email. It is used for my newsletter mailings only!
