Well after spending one and a half days sculpting a face (thought I would put some teeth in) I gave up in disgust. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I peeled off all of the clay and started over.....(the eyes were baked in place so that part was easy)....
Today I will finish the second try and MAYBE she will be good enough to save.....
Teeth are rare in my dolls. Lots of them have teeth that you can't see!!!!!
IDEX is coming up in January - lots to do til then....

Newest Asian toddler

Here is my newest Asian toddler mostly done now. I used pink silk batiste for her dress. Love that stuff - it just floats!! I pleated the silk ribbon trim - so tedious....
The older girl in the background is shown in the Dollery Catalog. The toddler with her has been sold and so she gets a panda bear to hold instead.
This new toddler can also fit into her arms but for now she will be her own individual!! I don't know if she will end up going to the Dollery show or not....

Polymer clay bead making party!

Here are the eight artsy ladies who came over for a polymer bead making party minus one who had to leave a little earlier! They all completed at least one piece of jewelry and it sure seemed like they had a good time! (The one in the middle is the birthday girl!!) It's too bad I don't have a close up of the beads, they were awesome! They were called stacker beads and I found them on http//

Asian toddler

Here is my poor bald little Asian toddler. I will get her hair on soon I hope. But today I am hosting around 8 artsy ladies and we are going to be making polymer clay beads for a couple of hours. It is part of a birthday party for one of them (can't tell you her age).
I will try to take pictures and post them later!

Tarah and Tina

My latest piece - Tarah and Tina is finally finished. Tarah stands about 20" tall and Tina is about 16". They behaved very well at the photography studio!
Now I am back to work on my Asian baby....starting to sculpt toes (my favorite)!

Just getting ready for pictures tomorrow...

Tarah is just getting ready for her pictures tomorrow....
I was at the middle school last night watching the other mothers fussing with their child's hair as they were waiting in the picture taking line. I let Hannah worry about her own hair as I didn't want her to feel more awkward and self-conscious about herself.
But I don't have to worry about that with Tarah...!!! I just have to remember to check ahead of time for those pesky hairs that always show up on her face in the close-ups...
