Sherry's baby

Hello! I hope everyone had a nice Thanks Giving!
I had Sherry's baby dolls visiting me for a few days. She arrived all snuggled in cozy clothes, but we had warm weather here in California so she needed a dress to change into.

She spent Thanks Giving with us and had a nice time visiting the garden.

See all the flowers we still have?

She is a bit homesick so she is ready to go home to Washington. I will miss you baby girl!

The twins are back

Team BBQ: Zeb and Calee, ditch the circus and go home! 

And how fun to make this post on such a special date: 11-11-11

I am very happy with the way they turned out, and their adventures took them about a year to be completed!

Finally finished, long over due homecoming as the jump in a box and make their way across the state. From New York (with Mealy Monsters Land) to California  and every where in between.
The circus was fun but they are ready to get home with lots of fond memories of circus life.

In a nice autumn day...

Sue's baby came to visit me right before Halloween.

 She had a nice sleight for her winter travels, but here in California we don't have snow, not even in the snowy spots. I asked her what she wanted to do for Halloween and she said "fairy!" so I gave her long flowing fairy hair, and made her a cute tiny hat and fairy dress.

I was going to give her  wings as well, but she didn't want to put them on, because her brand new hair would get messed up.

She ate all the candy already, and all she has to do for now is climb on her sleight and go to her next stop at Sherry's place in Washington.

Bye sweet little fairy! It was wonderful to have you here visiting! (My cat Panzón will miss you too)

Here's Octavio

This little boy is Octavio... or, well, these are the parts I am sending to make Octavio into a finished doll, as he travels to Idaho, Washington and California. Sherry will paint him and put him together

Blog menu and new baby

Hello there! I have been playing with the blog's look, and added links of the top menu, hoping that it is more organized this way. Let me know what you think.

Also, I have been working on a new baby! He is not as chubby as I like them, but after not sculpting for a long while, I'm afraid my hands forgot how to do things! Plus well, I still have some trouble with my thumb I hurt about 2 months ago.
Never the less, here he is! Just from the oven, but not painted or anything, as he will go visiting on a tour to be painted, dressed etc... His eyes look better in person, this angle makes him look funkier than what he is LOL
I named him Octavio. (Because I made him in October :oP)

Cute tutorial!

My friend Mary posted a super cute tutorial to make a doll head, which was taken from an article in Portuguese, but just by pictures you can figure the steps, plus Mary explained very nicely. THis is cold porcelain but any clay really, can be used.
