Well, here I am, back from the sunny south!!

I was busy sculpting and getting ready for the big IDEX Doll show in Orlando Florida, packed my bags and my babies and away I flew. I enjoyed the sunshine, along with the warm temperatures of the coast, but now am back and enjoying our warm weather here at home.

I met so many wonderful artists at the show, and was lucky enough to be one of the ladies to attend an 11 inch full sculpt baby doll course put on by the talented and very nice Pat Moulton! I have to say, if you ever have a chance to take a class from her, you should really try and do it! We giggled and laughed through out the entire class, as well as learning a great deal too. She is an awesome teacher, and an all around great lady, and it was a real honor to meet her.
Below are some of Pat Moultons 11 inch baby dolls.....
Because of the economy now, sales were down this year, but making all the new friends that I did really made up for it. I got to meet many of the big names in the industry, and hope to keep in touch with them in the future, and call them friends. I had a wonderful chat with Sherry Rawn, who makes the most adorable babies you've ever seen. She stopped by the booth and her and her son chatted for a long while with us.

Below is a shot of my part of the table at the show......
I have taken quite a few pictures of the trip, to remember everything, I hope you enjoy these.
I will also be listing some of the baby dolls that did not sell at IDEX very soon on e bay, so I hope you will stop by and check out my sales often to see if there is anything there that you would like. Below are a few examples of what I will be offering on ebay.....

I will also be starting my newest miniature soft body baby doll class in Grande Prairie, at the Centre for the Creative Arts, on Tuesday, Feb. 17th. Please sign up now if you are interested in learning how to sculpt these adorable little ones. The next class with be "Character Faces" which will begin in March.

I hope you enjoyed your visit, and please come back often to check out whats new!!!
