Hi guys, Sorry I have not been around much, and even though I am technically a grandma to two beautiful grandkids and a mom to 4 children which of 3 are out of the home, I am a college student. So last spring was a nightmare because all I did was study and it was so difficult to go to full time school at a hard university that I only went part time this semester but it is still a lot of work.  I worked my tail to the bone and got an A+ and an A in my last two classes.  I was going full time so I had absolutely no time to work on much and being as how I was just learning to reborn it was too much for me.  But I learned so much.  I am doing such a great job on my two new girl babies and I have plans for more.  I am going to do a boy too, yay!

I also went on vacation to the Caribbean.  We got to visit our timeshare in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands for 10 whole days!  It was so beautiful, I will share pictures later!

I ordered some supplies for my next babies as I work on my other two babies.  But I am freaking out because two large storms are coming.  I am keeping my eye on those hurricanes as they should arrive this coming week.  I am in Virginia so who knows what is coming our way next week and I am praying we do not have to evacuate!  As it is, I should be working on a paper right now but I am so excited to make my new babies, I am looking at videos online of course!  I love to watch videos of people as they get their new babies and I also like seeing what other artists are working on.  It's fun to see how people react to their babies and I enjoy seeing them sharing their tips, techniques and watching them play with their little tykes.

This week I found that some artists are doing larger dolls and I can't imagine how some are quite large and lifelike.  But I hope I can do some of the full body reborn dolls in the near future and maybe even silicone but like anything, learning is a process and I must be patient.  It's so hard for me because I have always been a painter so I am super excited for the next project.  Once again I am in school so I have to work hard on a class for my Information Technology Degree with a focus in cyber security.  Strangely all I can think of is painting my dolls!  What the heck?  I know.  It's strange. Especially late at night but I have found it's best not to paint at night because the lighting is too dark.  I will work on getting better lighting in the near future but I am still rearranging my house because I am painting my house new colors!

Strangely my husband likes the idea of me painting dolls so he never ever complains when I order a lot of supplies.  For some reason, it makes him happy to see me happy and he loves that I am an artist (and a good cook).  But I admit I love to see him happy too.  Like tonight when he went to go see "It" with my 20-year-old daughter and her husband.  I was like, no thanks, but have a lot of fun and don't eat too much popcorn!  He smiled like a kid in a candy factory because he is a huge comic, sci fi, and movie buff.  So I hope he enjoyed it.  No thanks on the clown thing for me.  Clowns don't freak me out too much except in that movie.

Anyhow, I am excited to show you pictures of my new babies as soon as I can!  I am going to start doing videos on my progress as well so you can see how I am doing.  I need to share to see what you think.  I am also going to start some videos to help you all learn if you want to make your own babies.  Since I am a mom, I have lots of experience and so maybe I can make some great recommendations to you!  Despite the fact that my daughter says my dolls are "creepy" she really does love them and probably wants one for herself.

Here are some pictures and videos so enjoy and say hi, please!  I love hearing from you all!

Love and blessings!
