My Favorite Girl

Here is a doll I have been working on for awhile. I like this one. Alot of dolls are cute, but I think this doll is beautiful, Not because i made her, but just a combination of things. I see through my photo that her right eye needs a little adjustment, it hikes up a bit, but that should be easy to fix. These pictures were taken with flash camera and the curls don't show up as dark as they are, but I did get them straighter. It still just amazes me that just  because you use a mold of the same doll, it doesn't mean you will get the same doll, you will probably never paint the same face the same way twice, not to mention the mold will change some too. It's just a surprise every time. Sometimes a good surprise.

New Izannah Doll

Hi, I hope everyone is doing good. the warm weather is here and it makes more work. I made this doll awhile back, but have been working on her hair and coloring. I think I now am satisfied with how she looks. I haven't picked out a dress color yet, but have some good choices. I am finally getting a handle on the curls. I finally know how to do them.  Hooray for me. It has been such a struggle. I also have been working on some small IW's. They are about 11 3/4" tall. I have had to redo alot of parts, because they were to small or to thin, but I think they are coming along. They are alot of trouble, but the big ones are too. I hope we all will have a good summer to continue our doll making. Time is the main thing we need and not to give up, but to continue on, even when we don't seem to be able to make the dolls we want to. We can make them, We can make them, We can make them. Never give up!!!!
