My First Reborn Baby

The last couple of weeks I have been working on my first attempt to reborn a baby doll. For those of you who don't know what a reborn baby is I will explain.
First you start with a kit which is the plastic head, arms and legs sometime the torso. I also used a doe suade body. The plastic parts are painted with layers of heat set paints. The paints are heat set between each layer. Then the eyes are glued in. The hair is rooted with a felting needle. Then you weight your body parts. This makes the baby feel like the weight of a real baby. Then you attach the parts to the soft body that has been weighted also.
This little baby is only 10". She was fun to make, I can't wait to get started on another. I hope with practice I will improve with each one I make.

My Birdy Necklace in a Treasury

My birdy necklace is in a treasury until Sunday. Check it out.

Look What was in Our Garage!

Last night while I was on the computer upstairs, my husband yells, "there is a hummingbird in the garage!" Well, my kids and I had to see this. My husband said he heard it and thought it was a big moth, then saw that it was a hummingbird. It would circle the lights in the garage and rest on the bicycles hanging from the ceiling or the bars for the garage door. We opened the garage door, but it still was not finding its way out. So, out came the kids butterfly nets and I was able to gently trap the little bird between the two nets and lower it to the outside. We were able to get one last picture before it headed straight up into the night sky. What an exciting night!
