Welcome to my blog

If you enjoy finding a lot of different outlets for your creativity, then we may just be kindred spirits.
This blog is an outlet for my interest in miniatures, crochet, plastic canvas, and many other various arts and crafts.

I also love walking, taking digital photos, and most recently, have rediscovered an old love...bike riding! I purchased an amazing new bike, a comfy Townie by Electra this summer, and have been having a grand time exploring the area as though for the first time. It's like being a kid again!

If you enjoy any of these things too, pour a cup of coffee and tea, sit down, and join me.

Take care!

New Baby Doll Tayla

Here's my latest reborn doll; made from the Tayla sculpt.  I had a hard time painting this one because the vinyl was pink; it took a long time to neutralize it to a more normal looking skin tone.  I made this doll for my little niece Clarissa's birthday.  I don't normally give preemie sized dolls (this one is 17 inches long) very much hair, but I figured that since this doll was going to have a little girl for a Mommy, I'd better give her some hair.  I know I wouldn't have wanted a half bald doll when I was little, lol.  The poor doll has a serious case of bed-head in this pic because she had a hat on before I snapped this pic.  I took this pic with my daylight lamp, but even then, it is so dark out that my flash kept coming on. I'll try to get better pics later.  I hope my niece will like her.
Now I just have to finish crocheting an ami dog, and then I can put the package in the mail.
