Reborn Art Cards ( ACEO's)

ACEO stands for Art Card Editions and Originals. The size of an ACEO is always 2.5" by 3.5". They are created in a variety of medias and are highly collectible Tiny Works of Art.

Reborn Art Cards are created on special paper, and are taken through several steps to acheive different finishes. 

These  Art Cards are created to celebrate the realism of these beautiful Art Dolls.

Some of the cards are cropped larger to show detail, but all cards are the measurements above.

These special cards are computer generated.  They are signed on the back with edition number, name of sculpt, and origin.

These cards are so fun to make! I have started enclosing these cards in with the Reborns that I sell.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!

Finally she's Done



Well here she is...making her Halloween Debut...

Please welcome Mary Goth...She is about 22 " all fabric.  She has a hand-painted
face and hands.  She has Human Hair.  All of her costume was designed and created by me...
Her clothes are not removable.  She isn't weighted so as not to put any pressure on her
jointed body.

She was bratty at times during her creation and gave me many problems...
She spent many a day in time-out...but finally she agreed to cooperate and the rest is history.

I'm not sure if I am going to sell her or not...she truly is One-of-a-Kind,

Going "Goth"

What a great time to go Goth...lol  It's getting close to that fun time of year,
when young and old get a little crazy.
I think the time is right to bring back my Mary and Friends line of cloth Dolls.
I copyrighted the pattern way  back in 1994, and somehow got busy doing other
fun things and the line got put on the back burner.



These are some WIPs. I still have to work on the face distortion. 

This is Mary and she will be 19 or 20 inches tall.  I am making her clothing patterns
now.  She and all of her friends will be free standing. She and her friends will be going
to the doll show with me next month.

• Sneak Peek • New Line of Bundle Babies













Hi everybody!!

This is my new line of Bundle Babies that I have been working on for a while...seems like
life just gets in the way sometimes...lol
I just love these babies because they are so versatile.
The average size of my babies will be around 4 inches, and always very posable.

This is 4" Adele and she will be available on eBay this evening.  I still haven't decided
how long her auction will be.  Sometimes I think 7 days is too long and people lose interest.
So I will have to decide when the time comes.

Well wish her luck and thanks for stopping by!!

The beginnings of a new cloth baby

This is how it all starts...a face, a drawing, an idea...
I begin by drawing and painting a face.   Sometimes the face works out and sometimes it doesn't.
This time luckily I am very satisfied with the results.

I plan on making this a 12" baby.  I have already designed the pattern...in fact the pattern was designed about
10 years ago, and I simply enlarge or reduce as desired.

I hope the rest of the doll goes smoothly...I hate snags...lol

Well off to the sewing machine!!

Could it be????

I caught my little Harvey looking out the window and I could have sworn I heard him say..."Could it Be...is it really spring out there now??? He is a totally inside cat so the only way he can celebrate spring is to look out the window...

I love to make Bears...every size and shape.
The bear pictured is a 2 1/2 inch Bellydancer named "Little Ruhama".


She was featured in Teddy Bear and Friends.


I had to stop for a while because my hands were giving out.

New Flash Website

For anyone who has ever thought about getting a flash website...have I got good news for you!!  There is a website called Wix.com.  It is a free website builder that is so easy...no html required, and so many templates.

You can make as many websites as you want for FREE, and then comes the hard part...which one to publish.  Their ads are on the site but you can upgrade and have the ads taken off, plus you get your own name.  The ads are not annoying and blend right in with the website, so I may not even upgrade.

To visit my new website just click on the link Dessa Rae Original Art Dolls

 It will be good to have when I go to my doll shows for advertising.  I'll just put the web address on the cards, so even if no one goes to the site, it will be good free advertising.

Well that's my good news for the week!!...lol

"The Golden Child" a doll with a story....

I have always written stories for my Faeries and miniatures, but not for my Reborns till now.
A long time ago I saw a documentary about a little girl who was taken from her family
and was considered to be some sort of sacred being in whom the entire region worshiped her.
It was on t.v. a long time ago and I can't remember all of the details, all I can remember
is how sad her face was as she looked out of the window where she was being kept. 
I changed the age of the girl but the rest of the story is true as far as I can remember.

I have done this same story for one of my sculpts, so I thought I would try it for a Reborn.

I even designed the auction template to match the story line.

So if you get a chance please take a peek and tell me what you think!!

To view my auction, click on the link below, or click on the picture in the upper right
side of my blog page.
