~ New Dolls, Doll Registry, & my kittens :O)

The lovely Nathalie wanted a doll inspired by the novel The Forgotten Garden, by Kate Morton.  Nathalie named her Delphine.....

Here is my latest Cadabby Pixie called Bella Moo.  She would like a new home, since I chuckle at her freckles.

To re-home her, she can be found here ~ Etsy ~  :O)

I have recently joined the International Art Doll Registry,  presided by Deb Wood.  I recommend joining if you make art dolls - not only can you have your work registered, there is so much to learn, with great tutorials & a fine network of doll artists. I'm hoping I will be able to attend IDEX with them in January 2012. 


Finally, thought I'd show my babies kittens off!  They are growing too fast.  Toblerone & Corky's twisted back legs are perfectly 'normal' now!  yay!  I must admit, I was aporetic, and didn't think the massage, stretching, bandaging (& splinting for Tobelerone) would work, but hell yes, it did!!

    Our minds are thinking alike this week...we both join IADR and we both post pics of our tuxedo kitties...

    Your kittens are so adorable, and your dolls are perfection!!

    So glad to hear the splinting of your kittens legs worked...You should be a vet...

  4. I just finished reading "The Forgotten Garden" and you hit the nail on the head with "Delphine." She has that far-away, wistful and beautiful look that the character has. Great job as always, Abi. I love that you're making story book dolls!

    And your babies, I'm so happy to hear that they're healing and thriving thatnks to their momma kitty. Bast smiles down upon you, Abi : ) Thank you so much for being the Earth Goddess that you are.

  7. Your golden hands have created two new beauties! I prefer Bella Moo just because of her charming freckles and tender profile!:)
    You opened a door to many miracles and surprises, by joining this big art doll community. I wish you many happy moments there, as well as to meet new friends!
    The kitties are lovely and they've grown up so quickly, because they are surrounded by love!
    See you, Abi!:_

  8. Wow, Delphine is stunning and I just adore Bella Moo!
    I'm SO HAPPY to hear how well you kitties are doing! :)
    Those kittens are looking so healthy and boy that little Toblerone is so CUTE with his spot on his nose! If I was at your house I might have to stick him in my pocket! LOL! (just kidding!)
    The registry sounds very cool! and to have tutorials!...I've tried to create dolls before and they tend to turn into cats!? and also I am so intimidated by such talented artists (like you!).

  15. Lovely dolls, as usual, Abi. Also, I love that story...one of my favorites...you captured her beautifully.

    As for your babies, I can't believe how big they've gotten...how I long for a kitten...I love cats, but the Chihuahuas don't and they seem to roam around this house as if they are the true masters!! LOL Your attempts to mend their little legs was a great success...your quite a country doctor!

    Oh, I just saw your other post about your anniversary, well Happy Anniversary and many, many more! Have a wonderful and creative week and again, I love those little furry "thangs!" Just too adorable!!

    xxoo,
    Georgina

  19. Friend, friend, friend, where do I begin? Such a time is July, but missed you while all was spinning so. Light and gifts I give to you for that is what this place and your spirit of friendship gives to me. Thanks, dear. Blessings.

  20. Hi Abi! Your dolls are so amazing. I love them both - truly so very gorgeous. And hurray for the kitties!!!! All your hard work and dedication has paid off. They are the cutest little things - I have a special fondness for that sweet little gray one. SO happy that they are doing well. :)

  21. Abi, I will take a look at the art doll link. Sounds great!

    Each time I look at one of your doll, I cannot stop thinking " what would mine be like if I had a customed doll made?" . Seeing all the wonderful things you do doesn't help in my little head, as I would probabley end up asking for about 30 different ones!

    Awwwwwwwwwww you babies are so, so, so so, so CUTE!!!!! I cannot wait to have a cat again. The companionship with my dear Rhonda ( that lasted over 17 years) was the greatest experience of unconditional love I ever had. I miss her.

    Okidoki...back to doll making now!

    Have a great day Abi! XO!!!
