What a busy summer it has been!
I hope you enjoyed your summer as well, even though it was busy, it was nice to have the sunshine and birds. Now, the geese have almost all flown south for the winter months, and the frost has started to set in at night. Fall is my favorite time of year, but it's just too short.
The good part about winter, (I'm a "glass half full" kinda girl!) is that its easier to sculpt, not so hot that the clay melts in your fingers, and I just love the cosy feeling the snow adds. I try not to think about the icy roads, scraping the windshield, wondering if we plugged our vehicles in, and the list goes on.
I have been so busy building the website for my sculpts as well as the one for my new children's book, that I haven't been able to keep up this blog very well, so I hope everyone enjoys the new pictures.
The little girl below is named Tawnie, she is an 8" soft body baby, and sold recently on eBay as my highest selling baby so far. I had almost decided to keep her for myself, but decided to offer her there, and she lasted only 10 minutes before a wonderful customer bought her up as a "buy it now". She was a joy to make, and my first attempt at eye lashes on such a small sculpt. I may try rooting some directly in the clay in the future to see what that would look like as well, since these are a little on the thick side, but still pretty darn adorable I think.
Tawnie lives in the US with a lovely lady who adopted her and even had a little crib ready just for her.

Below are Breanna and Bianca, these are a couple tiny little girls measuring only about 4 inches in length. I don't normally do tiny baby like these, but have had these dresses for a while now and wanted to make some wee girls for them.

Meet Layton, this little guy is a 7" soft body sculpt with an attitude! ha ha
Offered on eBay Oct.6th - 11th.09
He was a lot of fun to create with that wrinkled nose and wet tongue. I am really enjoying sculpting these slightly larger babies, its amazing what kind of detail you can get into a 7 or 8 inch that you can't with a 5 or 6 inch. I am hoping to sculpt a 9 or 10 inch very soon.
As you can see, Mari is a full sculpt baby, which are a lot harder than the soft body. I designed and sewed her little hat myself, which is a feat in itself since I'm not much for sewing! ha ha She measures around 6 inches, and went to a customer in Germany, lucky girl.
Belle is such a tiny little girl, measuring around 5 inches, with the softest expression on her little face. Here you can see one of the custom soft bodies that I sell, and how well it shows on the babies.
Belle also lives in Germany now, in a different town than Mari though.
Rory is quite a little handful with those big blue eyes of hers, and chubby arms and legs. She measures around 7 inches, and lives in the US with a wonderful collector who has more of my babies.

Cameron measures around 6 inches, and has the sweetest little expression on her face, on the verge of a snooze it looks like.
Cameron lives in the US now.
Here is little Annie, 6 inches of huggable sweetness! She is such a lucky girl to go and live in Spain, enjoying the warm weather and escaping the bitter cold of an Alberta winter. Her new home is with a lovely family, and home to a great artist who creates OOAK Mini Teddy bears, which I am proud to say, I have had the joy of adopting and just adore.

Thanks to everyone who stop by and check out my latest creations, it means a lot that others are interested in my work.
I hope you enjoyed these latest pictures, I will be putting on some of my latest series of trolls that will be for sale on eBay soon.
Have a wonderful fall everyone!!

Sophia - On ebay July 4th - 11th

I would like to introduce you to the newest miniature baby I am offering right now on ebay!

Auction runs July 4th - July 11th

She measures 5 1/2 inches.
As with all my creations, she is a One of a Kind.

Her little outfit was crocheted by my Mom,
and is just the sweetest little dress with matching accesories.

Just click on the link below to go to my auction

The Stibil Forest Adventure

Did you hear about my new children's book??

I would like to share with you my new children's book coming soon!
Here is what the cover looks like:

It was written by Cheryl Schenk and illustrated by myself. For the illustrations, I sculpted all the characters and much of the scenery in the book, then photographed all the scenes for the story.

Stibilville is a happy, playful village, tucked away under the maple trees of
Stibil Forest, but when Synni ventures out alone at night she finds that her friendly
forest has become a large and frightening place.

Join us for Little Synni’s Moonlight
Mischief, a Stibil Forest Adventure.
Published by Bittleberry Books
Printed in Canada
The book will be available for purchase for the beginning of August some time. I will be keeping everyone posted for specific dates.
If you want to follow the book, please visit our blog, the link is located at the top left corner of this page.
I hope to see you all there!
Thanks for taking time to stop by!
I would like to share a few pictures with you of a couple of the latest little fellows I have sculpted and sold on ebay.
First is little Ricky, he was the last little one I listed on ebay in June, before I got busy with the exhibit and book. I had so much fun sculpting him with his little tongue sticking out and that funny little smirk on his face. A wonderful customer of mine bought him for her Birthday, I was so pleased she chose one of my dolls as her gift!
He measures appr. 6 inches, and is a soft body baby.

Below is Shayne, he also measures around 6 inches long, and has also gone to a great home. He has got some of the fatest little cheeks EVER!! ha ha

I have been so busy with my exhibit and the book, that I missed a couple weeks on ebay with my babies. Hopefully I can keep up with them now.
See ya again soon!

Finally made it back here!!
What a crazy month it has been in my world, I have been working hard to get an exhibit together of all of my dolls and get that set up. I have designed a new series especially for the exhibit called Garden Trolls. They measure approximately 6-7 inches each, they are whimsical little creatures from my imagination. Have ever set down your little shovel, or packet of seeds and then only moments later discover that they are not where you left them?Or how about that watering can running off on its own......? Well, I think its the garden trolls, they sneak in, and take great pleasure in rearranging your tools and seeds. So this little series is all about them.

I didn't have time to take a pile of good pictures before setting up the exhibit, so I will have to post some new and better ones in October when the exhibit comes home.
Here are a few pictures anyways....

This little guy (below) hasn't quite been finished, no clothes yet! oops...

Sorry the pictures aren't of the greatest quality, but hopefully you get an idea of gross they each are! ha ha
Did you catch the one with my dog who decided he would also like to be in the picture with the little troll sleeping in the shovel he stole?
These will be set up for the months of June, July and August, in the display cubes at the QEII hospital. I also have a display for a few of my larger art dolls, as well as a large display of my babies in McKenzie Place.
Also, I entered the pictures of the first two trolls at the top, in the Global Dolls Artist annual contest and won 1st place! Thanks to the coordinator's of the contest for putting it on, I really appreciate you choosing my characters.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you will drop in again very soon.

Hi there, finally found a moment to get back on here and add the latest news.

I've been busy working on my new website, there are still a few kinks to straighten out, but if you would like to stop by for a visit,heres the link:

I have been staying busy with the mini OOAK babies, as well as the new childrens book my Sister and law and I have been working on. More information about that will be available on "The Stibil Forest" blog very soon. We are so very excited to have it done and sent off to the printers, to finally hold it in our hands will be a great moment we are both looking forward to.
I am so lucky to have some wonderful buyers on e bay purchasing my little mini babies there. I have been lucky enough to have sold all that I have put on , and am looking forward to making more. I have to say, the babies are a real challenge to make, I feel they are getting better with every new one I make.
Here are some pictures of my latest little ones:
