Growing and learning everyday 😊

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by.
I hope to be adding to my shop soon. I am a huge fan of all things Tim Burton, goth, horror, and stop motion. Here you will find some of my handmade creations. These creations have all been made by me, by hand, with lots of love using various materials and mediums. Keep an eye out as I hope to be adding more repainted dolls, art dolls, and sculptures in the future. Have a commission piece in mind? Although I am no professional and my skills are improving...with your trust and understanding of my skill level .. I would love to do my best to bring your vision to life! Message me and if it is a piece I am comfortable in creating I will let you know. At this time I have just recently ventured into the doll making world so I hope you join me on my journey! Any questions or feedback? Feel free to reach out...I would love to hear from you ❤

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I am open to custom orders. Message me about what you would like and I will decide if it's a piece I feel comfortable in creating for you. I will only accept orders in which I feel I could truly bring your vision to life and also something I feel I can really invest my feelings into. Because your vision and idea deserve it. Please keep in mind that I am self taught and my skills continue to evolve as I go. I look forward to hear from you :)

Sizing details

Sizes vary. Doll repaints are approximately 11 inches. With my Sculptures and art dolls typically varying anywhere between 8 to 12 inches. Custom order? We can talk about sizing.

Care instructions

Please know that my pieces are not made to be played with. They are for display only. They must be handled/moved/posed with care. They are collectibles and unfortunately could not handle play.

Gift wrapping and packaging

No special wrapping available. I do however usually wrap and ship my packages with cutesy packaging, a few extra goodies, and custom painted box.

Shipped usually using bubble wrap, packing peanuts, foam sheets, tissue, decorative tissue.

A gift?...Please feel free to ask about special gift wrapping ...if I can I would absolutely love to help with that.

Art doll handling/how to handle while posing

My art dolls are made having an aluminum wire skeleton (armature). They can handle movements like bending and posing. Most of my art dolls are only moveable/posable at the arms and legs. Of coarse they must be handled with care while doing so. When bending at the knees, hips, elbows please take note not to be grasping too hard or pinching on sculpted areas like shins, upper thighs, forearms as doing so can cause breakage. Please grab on non sculpted areas to bend or by resting against your palm and gently moving the area of interest with your other hand till you have achieved desired pose. Most of my pieces would do best leaning up against a wall or any other item as standing might cause them to tip over. :)

About Me 2021

36, Female, Hispanic, Always had a love of all things nature, animals, music, and art since I can remember. Never too late to dive into, discover, or rediscover old passions. So here I am at this age finally finding a way to combine a lot of the things that I love and create pieces to share with those interested. Thanks for joining me! :)

How long will my item take to create? Ship?

If you purchase an item already to go from my shop I usually ship within 1-2 days time. A custom piece (depending on your place on commission list, if any) can vary. Usually safe to say anywhere from 1-3 weeks creation time. And then from when I ship ....expect to receive anywhere from 2-7+ days. This is out of my hands once shipped and it all really depends on how smooth the Usps process goes after shipping. So far all my pieces have arrived within a reasonable time.

How is my item packaged?

Packaging materials vary but usually expect to see a mixture of the following:
Bubble wrap
Packaging peanuts
Paper
Foam
Some type of cotton roll/cotton stuffing

Items are not packed tightly to avoid breaking, but are packed comfortably to avoid any movement/shifting in box.

Boxes I use are sturdy not flimsy.

Gift tissue, string, rope, thank you card, business card, character/theme stickers, etc. are some things you can expect upon opening. And usually always an extra something as a thank you 😉🧡
