Art has always been a big part of my life. I used to sketch a lot, but wasn't into painting. I got started in plush toy making when I'd see artist bears. They were adorable and I wanted to learn to make them myself. I purchased patterns, and found free ones. I began to notice that all the patterns looked very similar, just the shape may be a little different, such as the head. I started making my own patterns about a year after starting. Soon I was taking on custom orders and designing custom patterns. I was hand sewing everything and buying the most beautiful faux fur from all over the world. After 9 years of sewing everyday, my wrists started hurting from the thumbs down. I couldn't sew for very long before the pain would start. I decided I needed to stop sewing by hand. I tried using a sewing machine, but it wasn't able to sew through the thick fabric so I gave up on plushies. I still make an occasional sock animal. I can sew them with my sewing machine, which helps a lot.

How I got into reborning. Well, back in 2011 my mom showed me a reborn. I thought it was neat and cute, but wasn't really interested. I had a doll when I was young that came from Toys'R'Us. She was factory painted, had rooted hair, was 0-3 months size. I named her Jessica, and she was my favorite. I always played "house" with her. <3 A year seeing reborns online, my mom brought it up again and said I could make them. I started looking into them more. I loved the idea of taking blank kits and making them look and feel like a real baby. I purchased my first kit from HunnyBunRebornSupply.com. "Kirstin" by Stephanie Sullivan was the first kit I made. I left the baby bald as I wasn't ready to try rooting.
He turned out really well, and sold right away. That was the start of my reborn journey and I haven't looked back. <3

I use GHSP paints at an extra cost. This cost is included in the price of ethnic babies. I'm not brave enough to paint ethnic babies with air dry paints. XD I use Golden brand and Ultimate Fusion acrylic paints.

Each doll is weighted to feel like a real baby. They have glass granules in their arms, legs and some in their heads. I also added a pouch of glass granules in the body for a more realistic feel, motion and feel. Larger babies, such as toddlers, have plastic pellets in the body for weight. Glass would make them too heavy.

I root all of my babies myself, including eyelashes, but sometimes I will use eyelashes that are glued in place. The mohair I use is from J's Premium mohair, or Slumberland. I use yearling mohair.

I also create silicone babies. Right now I'm working with partial silicones, this means they have a cloth body like a reborn. I have painted 1 small full body silicone, and will be painting a newborn size full body into the next year. Silicone kits are pricey, so I only have 1 at a time.

All babies come with birth certificates that have my nursery info on them.

I also sign every reborn I create.

I started reborning February 1st, 2013.

I'm on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. :)
