Bye Bye Baby

I have been working on two dolls at the same time. One custom order was a sort of emergency call by a person who had bought a doll long time ago. The dolls I created are very similar in looks. Both have brown eyes and brown hair. Only one of them has long hair - the other short hair. So I called them Big and Little Sis'! For sure, they must be related!

As they came to life in my little studio, they became rather good friends - chatting, hanging out together, pondering their new lives in different places.

Today their suitcases are packed, and they will leave town and go on a long trip. Little Sis' appeared very worried. What will life on the East Coast be like? I told her that a little boy named Alfredo will be so happy to meet her. He lost another doll I made for his family. Hopefully little Sis' will be able to fill the big hole that was left when his first baby was lost in the streets of Philadelphia. I wonder who took in this baby? Why wasn't it returned by the finder. Hopefully she is safe!

Big Sister is moving to a foreign country. She is quite excited about her new adventures living near London, Great Britain. I told her how pretty and green it is there in the summers. I know, because I lived there for a year when I was a teenager. But that's another story I must tell you later.

Maybe Big Sister will even get to see the Queen of England! I hear she just joined Facebook, my friends! Long Live the Queen!

Tears come to my eyes. I hope both dolls have wonderful lives in their forever homes and the lost doll has been happily adopted and we will never see her picture on a milk carton. I also play with my toys and speak to them when making, especially my mice.

I thank you all for your kind comments! Yes, I do hope the dolls make it safely to their destinations! That poor little kid who lost his doll is really upset and I'd like to cheer him up...
