Jack is back and going through the birthing process!

Yeahhhhh, I finally worked up the nerve to start reborning again after my husband's passing. I know that he wouldn't have wanted it any other way, but I just found it soooo hard to get started. He was my best critic and poor tormented "whadda ya think of this or whadda ya think of that" sounding board. I miss him very very much for so many reasons.

Now about Jack (I don't want to depress you), I love Tamie Yarie's preemie sculpts and I love doing preemies. I love little Jack especially, because he's a micro-preemie. He'll be about 14 inches completed, very detailed and just simply adorably precious features. I couldn't decide on his ethnicity and finally let my heart lead me. He is going to be Caucasian since I haven't done one in a while.

He's got his first 3 layers and I am letting the thinner flash off and bake these layers. I have his little outfits are just the cutest, so that was the extra incentive to get started. I can't wait to see him "born".
I will keep posting his progress on his special page, so keep checking back for his updates! I am excited!

From my heart to yours... Hugs, Judie

Finally what I have been doing

It has been a long time coming I know, but finally:

Keanu was adopted the first day of the year and living his new mommy. Jack has had his bath, his outfits picked out and I can't wait to start his skin tones!

Capri: That I had promised to do for my husband's granddaughter, I finally got her finished and she got her Capri 3 days before Christmas was the last baby in 2010

My problem child:
Her life was destined for the trash can, but I refused to give up on her and after much stripping and crying and stripping. My little Felicia Renae' was finally put together in 2011.

what a silly girl!

such a happy smile

going for a ride

best buds!

Also finally finished, my other piece that I promised was also in the show. Yes, the llama has real mohair for fur and the tree, his lead and the grass is done in 3-D
