More Doodles and Updates

Believe it or not, I've actually been working on a doll. In between surgery (which went quite well and thanks for all of the kind comments), feedings, diapers and playtime with the little tot, I've managed to do some more doodles and work on a doll.

I'll need to find a new place to set up my photography set, so in the meantime, doodles will have to do.

The drawing, or rather caricature, up above is based off of a little girl from 1906. She looks so sad, but that is the magic of her face. There is so much character present on someone so young. Of course, I just had to add a gigantic hair bow.

It has been an interesting time of artistic introspection. By which I mean to say, my work has taken a slightly new direction. To begin with, I have designed a new hand pattern, added a little more realism (not too much) and worked on the concept of free-standing dolls. The doll I am currently working on is slightly larger than what I normally would do.

Lastly, it has been almost a year since I have sold a doll on eBay. So depending on how the auction goes with this doll, I may change where I sell my dolls. Consequently, if you are interested in when I list a doll for sale, please join my Yahoo mailing list located on the right side of this blog.

Well, it's almost time to feed the little one, thanks for stopping by.


Speaking of the little one, here she is in her silk baptism gown I made for her.

As I scrolled down this blog post, I kept thinking, I hope she posts pictures of her little one soon!

I was rewarded! She is beautiful and so blessed that her mama can make her a beautiful christening gown.

So glad to see you working on a new doll.
