Realism That Fools The Human Eye

I have spent many years studying babies at different ages of development and I have learned how to capture the subtle qualities that trick the eye into "seeing" a real baby ~ when, in fact, it is very much a doll.

Ordering a high quality art doll is a BIG INVESTMENT. And I understand the stress that accompanies such a large purchase. I want your experience to be fun, joyful and stress free!

That's why I do my very best to be as transparent as possible so that my customers know everything from start to finish BEFORE the order is placed.  

I love my work and I want to create art dolls that you will love, too!  I am open and honest and I care about your purchase experience.  I want your journey to be a joyful one as you create your dream reborn baby.  

Wait times are kept as short as possible but delays do happen. Orders may lag a bit during seasons of scarce availability of premium hair or other elements required for completion. Rest assured, you will never be left in the dark about what's happening with your baby.

I work hard to keep my collectors informed at every step using Google calendar events. So when something changes ~ you get a notification (if you have subscribed & accepted the calendar event).  

You will also have direct access to me via text messaging once you have placed your order. This way, there's no wait when you need a quick check in or you discover a new question you have about your order. Your message comes directly to my cell phone.

Honesty, Integrity & Hard Work

There are so many scam sellers flooding the market with their lies and substandard, stolen reborn kits and I know people are scared to buy.  I want to alleviate all fears.  I feel like being good at whatever you do has to start with being a good person.  I work  toward being the vision God has for me in his heart every single day.  And I am deeply thankful for his mercy and grace in my life. 

About Me

MY STORY

The most important things to me are God and family. I struggle with severe anxiety from PTSD that emerged after a period of domestic violence.  One of the most terrifying symptoms of the disorder are derealization episodes.  Even just thinking about it makes me feel weak and shaky.  It has been my experience that anything can trigger them.  I can just be sitting on the couch watching television and it will happen.  I cannot even describe the horrific sensation that overtakes me in those moments.    


I know that it is God that gives me the strength to continually move forward and live my life. I am so thankful that He has blessed me in this work because my breakdown came on so quickly and was so debilitating that for months I was unable to leave my home, drive, or work. My job was a 90 minute commute each way and I was unable to drive myself across town for my therapy appointments, my husband had to take off work to drive me.  So there was no way I could manage driving myself that far away. I ended up taking medical leave to try to get myself into a better place mentally and physically. 


After many long months of intense emotional & behavioral therapy accompanied by lifestyle modifications, slowly my life started to come back into focus but it was clear that functionally speaking I was living with a brand new set of limitations. My doll work throughout my treatment was an integral part of my daily life during the time of my debilitation. My therapist helped me to learn how to use my art to bring balance into my mind and body.  This period eventually translated into my becoming a full-time artist when I was ultimately unable to return to my position as Director of Clinical Internship at VASOM in Charlottesville, Virginia.  

Faith, Perserverence & Joy

MY FAITH

I am so thankful that I am able to work from my home.  It gives me the dignity of providing for my family while also honoring my limitations.  I believe in my heart that the trauma and the brokeness was used by God to bring me into a more peaceful place in my life and I am so very thankful for that and I pray every day that I can stay here.  The current state of affairs in the economy is making my issues even worse because of the additional mental stress of not having enough money to buy groceries or pay for insurance.  


I serve a big God and I know his love for me is trustworthy.  But times right now are so hard and I'm getting very scared.  It's so embarrassing to me having this invisible illness that has stolen my freedom to a level where I can't function normally enough to have a job in my area of expertise & training. And because of that, my family suffers lack.  It's humiliating, actually.  Because, I want to be self-sufficient and I don't like to ask anyone for help - but I'm asking now.  I hope you will consider supporting my work if the Lord has lead you to do so.  Thank you for reading.

About Payment Plans

Layaway Plans are available for both babysoft vinyl & silicone. Early payoff is accepted.  

Before you start your application ~ Be sure you jot down the baby kit & name of the sculptor for the custom order you're attaching to the layaway.

SET UP A PAYMENT PLAN

Silicone babies are quite expensive for the blank sculpt & materials. By offering a layaway, I will be buying the blank in an installment plan that is dependent upon your layaway payments for completion. 

This means if you miss a payment the pour contract will void with no refund available.

The first five payment installments will cover the pour contract and cost of materials to complete your baby. Missing a payment will void the pour contract for your baby. 

Please do not set up a plan if you cannot complete the payment schedule.  There are no refunds. 

 I want to make it as easy as possible for everyone to have their dream baby. So, I have gone the extra mile and built a payment plan structure that can be tailored to fit anyone's budget. Layaway is simple, custom built by you and easy to maintain. All payments are non-refundable.  Your first installment payment billed at 14 days from the date of this form submission. 

Once I have received your submitted form we will build your payment plan according to your selections. It will arrive at the email address you provide in this form.

You will need to open your invoice to validate your plan & confirm billing schedule, then you're all set! Your payment plan will be activated & your first payment will be scheduled for withdrawal in 14 days.

Payments are securely processed by Stripe.  You will manage your payment plan, due date, payment method etc. directly in your Stripe dashboard.

Coming Home Items

Your finished baby will come home with the kit COA and my nursery COA plus the items included in the package you have purchased.

About Processing Times

Because every baby is hand made there is an investment of time (both yours and mine) in order to receive the best baby.

New editions will require longer to finish because it takes the manufacturer a longer period of time to supply the blank kits.

BabySoft Vinyl Babies

  • 10-20 Weeks

Silicone Babies

  • 24-32 Weeks

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you open my baby's mouth for a full pacifier or bottle?

  • If your baby is SILICONE the mouth can be opened. If your baby is vinyl a magnet will be required.

Can you give my baby dimples or open/close his or her eyes?

  • All of our sculpts are copyrighted to the attributes you see in the example pictures of the sculpt. I cannot modify any part of the physical sculpt.

What happens if I don't like my custom baby when I receive it?

I am one of the only artists who offer a no questions asked opt in exchange policy on my custom dolls. To activate this option just leave a note in the transaction notes that says "Enable Exchange". This ensures that you will receive your baby's preview gallery before it is shipped, so you can approve delivery or process an exchange. Once a baby has been shipped to you, it cannot be returned for any reason.

  • If your BabySoft Vinyl custom baby just isn't what you had envisioned ~ you have the option to exchange it for a new custom baby made from a different sculpt that I have in stock (FREE). Or, you may special order a blank kit at your cost. (BabySoft Vinyl kits are generally close to $130 for the blank kit).
  • Silicone babies may also be exchanged at buyer's cost for new blank kit. All silicone is pour to order ~ so we don't have any in stock blank babies. (Full silicone generally costs close to $2,000 for the blank baby. Partial silicone blank kits are anywhere from $800 to $1,200 depending on the sculpt).

Can I have a drink & wet system installed in my doll?

  • There are a select few full silicone babies that are offered with this option. Please inquire about this before placing an order. Dolls with cloth bodies cannot have a dws installed because of catastrophic damage and serious danger of mold growth.

I saw a reborn baby online that blinked its eyes. Can you do this for my doll?

  • There are a few videos of reborn babies online that appear to be moving & blinking their eyes. This is a filter and is not real. There are no options currently for eyes that open and close.
