I sometimes really like a baby and I think I really hope someone likes it too and while I am packing it up to ship it out I feel a little sad but kinda excited.
Once in a while I make a baby and think, maybe I could keep this baby, I never do because I would then only sell my ugliest babies, and become a baby hoarder (I know myself). I sometimes find someone else’s baby I love and try to justify buying it, I tell myself I will learn from their painting technique, its an investment! But I know one doll will lead to four and twelve and before you know it I am on a reality TV show buried under reborn dolls.
Today I listed Ace. I don’t know why but he is one of those babies I wanted to keep. It is something about his size, they way he feels in your arms, his proportions. He isn’t the best baby I have ever made but I am kinda crazy about him. It will be a little sad to send him off when the time comes but my hope is someone will really appreciate the work that went into him.
Do you ladies ever get a little attached to certain babies and you can’t put your finger on it?
I can certainly see why. He is beautiful. I love his hair.
Yes, I also get attached to certain babies and if you were in Europe I would be tempted to buy this one too !!
I was just admiring him on Reborns. And every time I see one of yours I get tickled at the name. The are always such basic words, but such unique names. ️
You are sweet. I was getting him put away and thinking, I should just keep one, but I have Americus and I haven’t listed her yet and not sure when I will, I kinda like her too. Not sure what I would do with them…but damn they sure are a good cuddle when no one is looking.
It took almost selling my Sansa to realize that I was not ready to let her go. Some babies are just like that - she is not my best, she is not a SOLE sculpt, she is not even a popular or sought after kit. All the same, I feel a strong sense of “my baby” with her and I am going to trust it.
I love, love, love your Ace. I was in love with James by Sandy Faber even before he was painted. he makes me smile every time I look at him. My sister bought me the kit with one condition-I had to promise to sell it. I made him a girl and dragged out finishing her because I really didn’t want to sell her. I put the highest price I’ve ever put on one of my babies on her, thinking nobody would buy her. Wouldn’t you know? She sold in a flash.
Not gonna lie…I cuddle then too when no one is looking.
Of the ones I’ve painted - Caleb, I actually change her often. Also Miles, doesn’t get changed often but he sits under my computer.
I’ve got attached like this to my third doll - Paisley. The way how she came out, her scrunch up face, the way how I painted her hair - I loved everything about her, even her funny froggy limbs.
Funny that I dislike Trinkle fairy from the moment as I pull the kit out of the box. I envision him to be a girl, but no way he can be a girl with his grown-up man looking toenails, his hands, his sausage arms, his weirdly shaped head. I kept that dislike feeling till I painted his hair. And magic transformation happened in a split second. He started to remind me my youngest grandson. No way I’ll let him go now!
I cuddle mine even if people are looking. lol
I love him and wish i had baby money so i could buy him.
I know how you feel. I started making them, telling myself I’d only keep one and sell the rest. Well, maybe I’ll keep two. Or three…
I now own nine and have a few more on the way that I’m definitely not selling.
I think he is so beautiful. I would love to buy him if I could.
I can see why you fell in love with him, he is beautiful! His hair is awesome. You did an excellent job on him. I know I would not be able to give him up.
Haha @Katinafleming and @Gabriell I sneak in a cuddle with the babies too when no one is around. My family already laughs lovingly (i hope) at my baby making room, so I cant let them know I cuddle the babies too!
I have one right now that I want to keep so bad, but I’m not a collector and I know she’ll be loved more when she gets adopted. Every time I have to pick them up to move them, I give them a little kiss on the head. No cuddles other than that though lol
Oh yes some are special. If it looks real or feels real I want to keep it.
