Sometimes I forget...

....about dolls I have made, you know, the ones that wait patiently in the wings till someone finally catches a glimps of them? Well not Raven....there she goes!!!

Showing her neekid little be-hind, such a naughty mischevious little baby and just like all little ones, she got tired of waiting for her turn, as you can see I was supposed to fix her arm, among other things and a little girl can't wait forever
you know!... Caught you, you little stinker!

Well, no use getting mad,I'll have to find the time to fix her up, but I'm sure she'll just find something else to complain about, she really is a spoiled little thing though! oops! there she goes again...sigh!

Ayway it's way passed her bedtime and mine. All that running make a girlie so tired !... that makes two of us...Nite sweetie.


"Raven" was my very first "ball joint" dolly sculpt...(could be why she's so spoiled) She was a learning experience, I wanted a bjd so bad, but the price for even a small one was WAAAAAAAAY out of my budget so I figured I could make my own...
she can stand and sit on her own and is jointed at the neck, shoulders, elbows and knees, and is all of about 6-1/2" or so inches tall. All handmade, from concept to creation, without the use of molds.Her sockets are lined with pink satin, but as you can see her elbow joint was weak and broke, due to my lack of knowledge about the stability/strength needed for her joints. She has seed beads as eyes and Tibetan lamb for hair. I'm thinking of making another one, I do have some Cernit ....
