From the time I was little I've loved dolls. Not just any dolls, but as realistic as I could find them. I was never satisfied unless they could wear real baby clothes and even then they were never cuddley enough. When I was 21 I was browsing ebay and discovered reborn dolls. I was fascinated by them and would pour over the pages on ebay, wanting one so bad. One day, two days later, I decided I was going to try to make them. I figured it was the only way I'd ever own one. I bought my materials and set to work with oils and stencil creams (the art has evolved since then). This baby was born.
My very first reborn baby. I named him Donavon. A few months later I was invited to the house of a nice lady I met on http://www.doll-fan.com/. She was amazing. Helped me reborn my second. A neighbor of hers and her best friend came over while we were working. Knowing that I was just starting out, the neighbor gave me all her genesis heat set paints. She no longer had need of them because she had started sculpting. I will forever be grateful to her.
Over the last three years I've been reborning and selling on ebay. Now I've branched out to this website. I take my craft seriously, pouring my heart into each baby I reborn. I take pride in my creations.
Thank you for taking the time to read my long winded history.
