Full body silicone Mack is coming to life!

And while he is (coming to life) this outfit came to life for him by the very talented 
Tiina Hoddy of Piccolissimo LTD!

Isn't it just the CUTEST set???!?!?!?!?  

Back to the studio I go!

Tiny peek

Getting back late on Monday left me pooped!

I had Tuesday to work on full body silicone Mack and was gone all day again yesterday, and am leaving tomorrow (Friday) again for the weekend.  

I'll be working on Mack again today so for now, I offer a little peek at the mini resin baby I've reborned;  Tulip by Izzy Zhao.  

As soon as I have a few minutes to take more pictures of her in her "outfits" that arrived, she will be available for adoption  :)

Mother's Day extended weekend :)

To all of the mothers out there, I would like to say a special THANK YOU.

Moms are just special!

I will be leaving today to spend two nights with my own special mother and then another night and day with my daughter, her husband and their two daughters...my granddaughters!

I wish you all a very wonderful weekend.  

May God bless and keep you.

Full body silicone boy has arrived to the studio!

Please welcome prototype Mack!

Here is in his blank state...I will begin the tedious painting process today.

Yesterday was spent "bonding" with him to understand his character and personality.

I am truly excited about this perfect little guy!

He was sculpted by Lilianne Breedveld and poured in the US by Claire Taylor.

He has a ball jointed head, armature in his arms, is anatomically correct 
(warning, naked pictures below!) and has an open mouth with a tongue and gums.  
He can take a full bottle and full pacifier nipple!

I am in love!

Busy, busy, busy!!!!!

Spring is in full bloom here and with that comes so many added chores, plus taking care of TWO homes...the one I live in and the one we are preparing to sell.

That said, I DO have a sweet and precious little Resin baby finished and yesterday, 
a darling full body silicone prototype boy arrived to the studio!  

I'll share pictures as soon as I can get some taken.  
That is the part I am not finding time to do.  

Happy Wednesday!

Oh hey look! A classic reborn Berenguer available for direct adoption!

I kept this one hidden from you!  
(Well, I think I mentioned it but never showed her)

Please meet Tori!
(Short for Victory because each and every baby is a victory to me!)

Tori is created from the same 15 inch Berenguer sculpt that I created my first reborn doll from a little over 12 years ago. 

Here is a comparison of the two:

What a difference 12 years makes!  :)

Tori is available for direct adoption on my website:

And a few more pictures just to show her off here:

I simply adore her!

I present Alyssa Raley Anne!

As I mentioned yesterday, the "Beach Baby" Ashton Drake Doll whom I had been calling Alanna after the girl she was created to be had a name change.

Another name that the real Alanna's mom had in her pool of names for her daughter was
Alyssa Raley Anne.

Since she already has a portrait doll named Alanna, she decided to name this baby 
Alyssa Raley Anne.

I had the best time taking pictures of this sweetheart yesterday!

She is a whopping 22 1/2 inches and weighs, per her "mother's" request, 
8 pounds, 6 ounces!

She is traveling home today.

Here is the original doll, Beach Baby:

And the photos of the real Alanna that I most used to create Alyssa:

And the Alyssa baby doll:

 My favorite picture of her:

This dolls head was SO HARD!  Not only did I have to heat it, it had to be HOT!
Even so, I broke an entire ounce of Bountiful Baby's older 40 gauge Ultra (extra strength) needles!
I barely got her head done with only 3 bent needles to spare.  This has not been my needle of choice for many years but I am glad I had them on hand because that is the only gauge and strength of needle that would root this head.

But, other than a lot of "pokey-ups" that will brush out over time, and a few places where there are several hairs in a hole, I am very happy with her head of hair:

This is the outfit that her "mama" wanted her to arrive home in.  
The real Alanna was born at 8 lbs, 6 ounces and never got to wear this shirt and jeans. 

 Ready to travel home (without the pacifier in her mouth of course!):

What a wonderful experience this was!
