We've got Pictures!

 I promised pictures of Melanie! Just to refresh your memory this was the "Crystal" (sculpt) by Denise Pratt now Melanie by Judie (Reborn)!

She's still a diamond in the rough, I have to do her eyelashes still! The little red velvet dress with matching bloomers and headband, as much as I liked it (when my sister brought it to me as very gently used, I didn't see) it has a small milk stain on the collar and I don't know if it will come out. Bummer! It was just sooo her and right for the holidays and in excellent shape (definitely a one time occasion)! Well, this being only test shots, she might have to go to a new party dress that I'm thinking about when it's all said and done.

From my heart to yours... Hugs, Judie

Pictures of Melanie soon!

I am so happy to say that Melanie is finally rooted! I think she really came out too cute! I will be posting pictures of her real soon!!

From my heart to yours... Hugs, Judie

Bridgette gets her new outfit!

As promised Bridgette got her new "Bonny" sailor outfit by "Mykidstudio" that was selected just for her and it looks like it was made just for her! It is even cuter in real life and they shipped fast!
she is such a little show-off!

The outfit looks like cotton in the photos but it's more like a sateen polyester

The six gold double breasted buttons just set it off! I love that big front bow, puff sleeves and back ties with navy blue strip accents. It is just simply ADORABLE! The tam has little white ribbon tails on the back, but I will have to show you those details at a later date! I couldn't resist adding the little patent leather shoes with bow ties and her little lace trimmed socks with bow accents. She is on her way to be a part of the photographer Jamie Diamond's "Amy Reborn Project in New York" for two weeks! I am so excited about being able to be included! Can't wait to see what Jamie does with her photos and I can't wait for Bridgette to return!
Well still have a bit to go on Melanie's head. It's going to be interesting because I am experimenting, I decided to mix hair fibers. That's all I am going to say about that. Ha-ha and hope the joke's not on me!

From my heart to yours... Hugs, Judie

One down, one to go!

I finally got Bridgette's hair all rooted and she's all girl! She is the so adorable Amy kit by Jannie de Lange. Here's a sneak peak of her! It was hard finding a paci that would work for her, she has such chubby cheeks!
 She hasn't been very happy since she got her ears pierced! LOL

 I ordered her a special little outfit and then she'll be off for a special project and return ready for adoption!

I am working hard at getting the rest of Melanie's hair rooted. I hope to have her completed before the week is out, so you can see her!

I just got my "Sally" kit by Bonnie Brown. I just gave her a bubble bath...hummm, just to cute how those ears stick out!! LOL Gotta get back to work!! 

From my heart to yours... Hugs, Judie

Felicia is going home for Christmas!

I just had to come back and share the good news! Felicia Renae' (Nicky sculpt by Jackie Gwin) my little two toothed toddler has been officially adopted and is all ready to be shipped out Monday to Virginia!

From my heart to yours... Hugs, Judie

Is it Possible?

AA toddler Felecia Renae' may very well be getting a mommy for Christmas!!!! YEAHHHHH! She just adopted little 6" Hailee and decided that Hailee needed a sister. I am waiting with baited breath! LOL Nuri reached his destination and is now known as Nicci! Still need mommies for Abra, Chane'l, Ayashe (Landon) and Pressli Dawn. I have faith!

We had some nice weather so I put up a few lights, just seemed like I couldn't break the neighborhood tradition, especially since my neighbor across the street started putting up lights too! Their children are grown now...they didn't put up outdoor lights before...hummm. Oh well better late than never. We were supposed to be in for some bad weather...yep, barely got a 1/2 inch of snow, but it made the lights look pretty. Weathermen...KWIM

Then I had to remove my newly installed floor under the sink, I was so despondent. I just re-did it about a month or two ago from the garbage disposal leaking. However, this time it's on me. I think water seeped under the sink when I was giving the pups a bath. They have their own bath tub but if it moves wrong it tips. Nothing more to say on that. Just had to take it all back up, it was getting that mildewed odor again and I can't stand to smell it. This paper! Jeeze Louweez!!

I have to do some update pics of Melanie / Crystal and Bridgette / Amy. I am rooting Bridgette's big head LOL almost finished so that I can start on Melanie's. I love how both of their skin tones turned out. I got a new Nikon 35mm lenses for extreme close up so I am biting at the bit to take some shots! Well, hair first, pictures next. :o) Back to work~

From my heart to yours... Hugs, Judie

Seems like Christmas in November for me!

It has been a busy month! I truly hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and didn't get too stuffed! We went to my sister's (me and my fur babies). I had a good time. I still miss my hubby being with me, but I will always believe that he was there in spirit. Now to get ready for Christmas. My neighbor's did theirs today, kinda forcing my hand. LOL...maybe tomorrow I will put up some decorations, maybe.

I have been shipping babies more than ever! Believe me when I say...NOT COMPLAINING!!! Sometimes you don't always get a message, so I send my babies with a signature release, then I know that they were delivered. It warms my heart when you actually get messages from adopting mommies. I like to add them to my website. An older set of micro-preemie twins went to two different mommies the same day even though I don't like the thought of separating them. At least they went the same day. It was nice that one liked one and the other liked her twin. Jazzie's mom is in love with her, but since this was regarding the twins, Tavis and Tavia, I wanted to share:
HI Judie!!!  I can't believe my babies arrived yesterday!!!  I would have written earlier but I haven't been able to take my eyes off of them :)
Thank you so much for getting them to me so quickly.. this is the best birthday present I have ever had and is fitting for my 60th birthday..ha
I can't begin to describe how I feel about them. They look so real and precious!! You are a very gifted artist.
I so miss working as a nurse in the NICU, but when I hold them and rock them I feel like smiling and feel so much love.
I could go on and on about how surprised I was when I opened the package and saw all the little gift wrapped pieces, each with their own special toy or stamp on them. The time you took to do all the special touches was not wasted. I have never in my life been so surprised.  Even the birth certificate pictures had their name on the picture with my last name. The foot prints on them were so sweet!!!! 
So, I will never, ever, forget the wonderful experience of opening the box and seeing my precious babies with the very thoughtful special touches. Seriously Judie, it was a moment I will never forget.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I will take such good care of them and love them forever!
With much love,

I am working on two other babies now (Amy by  Sandy Faber a special project and Crystal by Denise Pratt for the nursery) they are in the final painting stages (YEAAAH) and I am so ready to root them. I have another memory baby to start on but I will be taking extra time because she's extra special. Yet, there are some babies ready and still looking for mommies! So don't forget to visit them on my website, because I need room for more! :o) Well back to work! Just wanted to touch bases!!! HUGS!!

From my heart to yours... Hugs, Judie
