We had 5 days without new snow falling...what a nice break that was as we have spent a LOT of time shoveling the white stuff.
I am NOT complaining as we have been in drought for many years now.
But, I did enjoy not having to shovel. :)
I went for a weekend get-a-way with the gals I call The Cowgirls. These are the same women that I go to "Cowgirl Camp" with every July.
The roads, though snow packed, were good for travel and we had such a wonderful time!
The beauty around us as snow and frost covered trees was breathtaking...every where we went.
One of the things we did was went dog sledding!
That was amazing and so gorgeous!
Anyway, yesterday I finished rooting custom Liling! He's got his lashes and gloss and this morning I added a bit more gloss to one eye that had a little air pocket. He's drying now and looking so good!
That gloss should be dry enough for me to do his final photo shoot this afternoon.
Hmmm...what shall I do in the meantime???
Oh! I know...the Ashton Drake Doll Emily has arrived!
I will begin to prepare her. :)
That is a good way to spend a very, very snowy day!
(There is a layer of frozen rain under this new snow...on top of the old snow.)
2017 marks my 12 year in the reborn doll industry.
I guess that means that when a fellow artist asks me to reborn a classic Ashton Drake doll for her personal collection...a doll that so many of us love and I even have an original in my personal collection, I get to say yes if I want to!
And want I do!
Silvia Ezquerra asked me to reborn an Ashton Drake, Linda Webb
"Welcome Home Emily" doll for her.
When she first asked simply if i do customs, or course the answer tossing around in my head was a big fat "NO!", but when she told me WHO she wanted reborn, I just could not resist!
I am so excited...she is so excited...
WE are so excited!
I love Emily. I have an original Emily in my collection and a mini Emily in my collection that I reborned.
Last night I purchased the Emily doll to reborn. I can't wait until she arrives!
Here is my Welcome Home Emily:
And my tiny Emily reborned next to an original Tiny Emily:
