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!!
