Hello again, This is baby Astrid, as you can see, she is quite tiny! I am finally....getting better at making tiny eyes. Astrids eyes are not computer generated, they are hand painted, only 1.5 mm! I coated them with fimo baking gel, which gives even the tiniest eyes, a clear lens, and makes them look very realistic! Little Astrid measures just two inches long! I made her little dress and bonnet from a small piece of vintage style lace in cream and pink. Her little diaper was made from a 3/4 inch triangel of pink cotton! Hope you are all having a great week! xoxox Christel

Astrid is for sale on my ebay now!

Wishing you the very best on her auction my friend.. I am sure some lucky person will snatch her up.. Oh gosh she is sweet!
Love and blessings,
Penny

Little Astrid is absolutely the most adorable baby girl. You are amazing! I have a hard time painting eyes 10x the size of the ones you painted for this sweet baby and what I do never turn out as nice. You have a rare gift my friend. BTW I too have a weakness for redheads. xoxox

GOOD MORNING CHRISTEL!

It was so good to see your comment early yesterday morning, but school called me and from that point on, it was impossible for me to visit any blogs!!!!

Your new little wonder is as precious as all your other creations...made with love! And thank you for our lovely comments on my beautiful MARIE....she was and still is to me, the most beautiful woman to grace a photo. Anita

Christel said...

Dear Anita, Rightfully so, that you should be so proud! A beautiful lady, her photos speak volumes of class, and grace! xoxo Christel

Christel,
You amaze me girl, and why did you not become a doctor in fine surgeries. With your tiny delicate skills you should have been a surgeon.
In sorts you are, and the creating of your fine work is so evident.

Love all you create over here, you need to wow us with your place of studio works, with all your fine tools about, and clay that takes on what ever you vision it to be.

It was pure joy to see your visit at my place.
Lots of hugs, hearts, and kisses to you this fine filled with love February.

Xoxo
See you soon
Doré

Aw, this was a really good post. Taking a few
minutes and actual effort to make a superb article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don't manage to get anything done.
