Trade part of the IDEX show

Oh my gosh my helpers are going to kill me.....everyone say "cheese"! ROFL!!!

That was Lainey and Sally getting the crib finished so that I could get the babies hair combed and arranged in the booth. is good and fun and thank goodness I have forgiving friends! snicker snicker giggle!

The finsihed booth (more or less...a little more tweeking was done later)

Today the IDEX show doors open to the "trade" (dealers). It was a pretty slow day but tomorrow should be a lot of fun when the collectors are invited in. They are swooming around the show floor doors just dying to take a peek!

Sally is "baby sitting" Kirsten.

I had a chance to walk around with my camera.
Found this gorgeous piece of work. It has lights, sound and actions. Just gorgeous!

This adorable baby is Laura Tuzio Ross' new baby that will be produced in vinyl kits. I will be doing one of the prototypes for Laura! I am so excited!

(the lighting is horrible on the show floor~pardon the poor pics)
Sharon Robinson's table of lot's of little OOAKs. Our group loves Sharon's babies and each of us will be bringing new ones home.
We love Sharon too!

Masterpiece Galleries dolls:

Cathy Reed dolls:

Hanging around the booth visiting:
Sally, Becky and Elisabetta

Huti Babies! Oh my I can bring home 4 of these real easy! LOVE them!

Hildegard Gunzel dolls~gorgeous!

And this is what happens after IDEX...a gathering in the lobby with waiting collectors, artists and old friends.

Lainey, Becky and Sally all adopted Angela Harris silicone dolls today. We took them and Baby Jena to dinner after chatting in the lobby for a while.

Jena really want's "Auntie Lainey's" attention but she is oohing over her new baby whom I love! Good thing that Lainey bought her! (I cannot recall her name at this moment)

Becky and her new love, Sweet William.

Now Jena wants to eat a lemon!

And Jena wants to eat some bread.

I have more exciting news to share but it's not released just yet.

More news tomorrow or Sunday. Tomorrow will be a busy day with the collectors and then there is a doll fan gathering for dinner and a baby shower afterwards. Fun times!


  1. Great post, and thank you for all the interesting pictures! I have a question though; in the crib, wearing a yellow dress and blue booties...who is that? I honestly thought you had put a real baby there for a second. LOL! If it's one of your IDEX dolls (which I'm assuming it is), I think it's Megan. But I'm just not sure. LOL!
