My "Poppy" by Romie Strydom :0)


Just wanted to sound off and take a break from finishing up "Lil Miss Sally" proto ! I wanted to share a couple snap shots of my "Poppy" by Romie Strydom... O.K. Poppy was supposed to be my spring baby and I was sidetracked by other fun projects :0) I actually was going to take her to the doll show, but decided on "Benji" instead, in which I am happy that I did! I still have a few things that need to be done with this little chocolate cutie. We all know I have a soft spot for the babies who are closer to my skin tones. LOL. Just wanted to share, here she is:

This little girl will have a head full of gorgeous black curly hair :0)

See a Resemblance?


Just wanted to share this pic that I originally used as my muse to create Wai Ling. I think I came pretty close !
You Think ? 

Any hoo  :0} I have decided to make a little Cocoa Puff version of her! I very rarely ever make the same sculpt more than once back to back. Although she has turned out to be a gorgeous princess so I cannot resist. I already have my new model's complexion. A pic of a gorgeous baby that I snagged. I can't wait to start her. Just hold on, it may take a sec I still have some projects I need to finish . I just wanted to share, how much I love this sculpt by Laura......

Let Me get One thing Straight

I don't do well with drama.

Let me start off by saying how angry I am right now. To all who may not know, I am not about to play any games with this issue. There was a post on, (its under " I love her work but....") about a fellow artist. This artist had a doll listed on eBay. Most of the comments stated about their distaste for her price range. There was one member who erroneously posted about seeing the artist and receiving a business card at the  doll show and how she had a table with eight dolls. Instead of this person or persons owning up to the fact that they made the mistake of assuming I was this artist. They insinuated that someone was passing out her business card or a card with her name on it.

 For one thing my picture is on my blog and we look nothing alike. I am very comfortable with who I am and what I do as an artist.  I have never and would never perpetrate to be someone else period let alone just to sale a doll. I am an honest person and do not need to use someone elses name to do anything in my life. I try to live my life as a christian and let God guide everything I do. My babies sell well enough on their own with being Nisha. Even if they don't sell this is a hobby to me not my lively hood. I enjoy what I do without all the "extraness"! I am 37 yrs old and well beyond this pettiness.  The only reason I feel like I have to respond to this is because my name is all mixed up in a post that should have had nothing to do with me. I think anyone who has met me at the show and in person could vouch for me that I came as Nisha Crockett and not to pretend to be someone else. My cards have "Tanisha Brianna Crockett" and my contact info.

I just have to say, I am not in the business of promoting any one elses name or business but my own Tanisha Brianna Crockett of Sweetface Beauties Boutique. Who thinks like that ? Better yet, why would anyone be that self important to think that way? The other thing I wanted to say was I never said anything about this artist in the post on the REAL forum because I was being respectful and trying to clear up why I was even mentioned in the posting and why there was  misinformation about me. I could care less about any opinions on her dolls. I would also like to see these supposed business cards that were allegedly given out at the show?

WIP Ethnic AA Blasian "Wai Ling" Prototype by Laura Tuzio Ross !!!!


I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday ! 

Let me start off by saying Mrs Laura is the business!!!!!!! I loooooove her babies!!!!! She has an  extraordinary talent for creating the prettiest babies. We have shared this in conversation, we both love creating the prettiest babies. She has that skill down to a "T". 

 Every single time I have made one of her babies, my husband says," Ooh that baby is so pretty or cute". Trust me he is no doll lover but, there is definitely something about Laura's babies that draw him in. Not to mention he wanted to keep the "Lil Champ" prototype !!! He was another cutie pie of mine :0) Well I have been busy with this little Missy, snapping pics through out the day :0) Some of the photos are a little dark. This is just a little Peek a Boo at her.....

Hugs :0)

*****On Hold Until Further Notice***** Introducing My Trial Run for "Baby on a Budget" Line

Hi All,

I have been tossing around an idea.....

Well, I actually had posted this idea on Facebook a few months ago. I am toying with the idea of taking a couple of custom orders for the $875 (price range) + $25 for shipping. I am trying to keep the cost down (half the price of what my premium LE babies cost). New mommies will have the choice of choosing a kit, hair, and eye color from the "Bountiful Baby" store online. I will only be taking orders for babies 18' to 21' inches. Of course these babies will not have as much detailing as my premium reborn babies , but will still be beautiful all in all! Remember, I am trying to keep the cost down for mommies who are on a budget. This idea was already in the works, but I felt like I really should offer this deal to all mommies who would like  to adopt one of of my babies. 

I will tell you why I chose to do this: first reason, I had a fellow artist contact me about customers who wanted her to make replicas of my dolls. Let me start off by explaining, each and every artist has unique artistic abilities that cannot be replicated by someone else. I also can honestly say that it is difficult and not my preference to make replicas of babies that have been created by me previously or anyone else because all of my babies are unique in their own way. I can't stand to see the same doll made over and over again, it gets so boring.

I think that is one reason why if there is a sculpt just released I have no desire to create them right away. No pun intended to other artist who like to do that. Unless I am doing the prototype. LOL. I guess I like to let my mind marinate with what I want to do with the sculpt.  I know some artist also write down their steps, which I do not do. That takes all of the enjoyment out of the creation (for me). I always say if it requires too much work then it is not considered "fun". So I like to let the sculpts take on their own personalities throughout my reborning process. Yes, just like they have their own DNA. So, for any artist to try to replicate someone elses work would be "challenging".

Some might ask why the $850 range, that is still a little pricey? Well for me, it is about my time and dedication to my art form. Anyone can throw some paint on a doll kit and put it up for sale. Me, I truly take my time and paint with my heart.  The second reason is, I NEED and repeat NEED for my babies to go to homes where they will be well taken care of. If anyone is willing to spend this kind of money it will not be considered a toy and should not be. All of my creations are considered a piece of art. That happened to me once about two years ago and I have vowed for it to never let it happen again. Never mind Talia Monae was very angry about it..... My number one goal since the beginning has been to create the most beautiful realistic Ethnic/ African American babies through my eyes :0) 

So therefore I will be listing two auction availabilities at this time. Please take the time to review this website to choose your babies, you do not have to stick with the pics that will be pictured in my auction. Here is the website: Yes, all of the kits shown in the Gallery can be reborned as an AA baby.  Again this site was chosen because the sculpts and eyes are the most reasonably priced for a custom auction in this price range. I will also be happy to assist you with your choices. Oh and the kits are subject to availability The price is nonnegotiable, so please respect this opportunity. Layaway will be available, just $250 down and the remainder payments will be broken down over three months of $208.  If you need a modification please let me know. Your baby will take 8 - 12 weeks  or less to complete. Progress pics will be sent for approval. I do not take custom orders often so please don't miss out on this opportunity. Anyone interested please contact me, first come first served. Again I only have two adoption offers at this time, due to my other projects that are in the works. I may be able to fill them before posting them on ebay. Here are some pics of my babies who were created my first year and a half of reborning from Bountiful Baby:
