Tough times don’t last, but tough people do.
-Robert H. Schuller
These are definitely some tough times for us all. This rapid growing pandemic is making people panic and loose their focus. It is understandable to be scared, no one wants to get sick, much less pass it on to someone that can be more vulnerable to it. However, it is important to have a clear mind in times like this. Don’t let the social media dictate how you prepare for this virus. Make sure you research and listen to reliable sources. There is a lot of rumors and miss information out there my friends, jut be careful.
I planned this baby as a red head with dark blue eyes, I already had a name for her and all. However, when I started making her I wasn’t feeling very motivated. All this Coronavirus thing started to come out all over Facebook and all the comments, memes, and even the news, seemed very racist at the moment. I understand the virus started in a market in China but just going against a whole country for it… well, I thought it was plain racist and made me pretty angry. Once I finished sculpting the face of this doll, a light turned on in my head and I saw a sweet Chinese baby just sleeping peacefully in front of me. That’s when I decided this baby was meant to be Chinese.
Her name is Yenay which means “she who loves”. Yenay was born as reminder to all that there is really one race, the human race. She was born to celebrate our differences for without them this world would be pretty bland and boring. She was born to reminds us that we all start as defenseless, innocent, and pure as the others. But most of all she was born to remind us how powerful love is, especially the love of a child, since it is the purest most unconditional one of all.
Yenay is a 20 inch one of a kind Asian posing doll. She is NOT a natural fibers doll. She is not filled with wool and is not a Waldorf Inspired Doll. She is filled with soft polyester stuffing which allows for this kind of soft sculpting. Her body is made out of organic cotton interlock fabric hand dyed to a pale blushed color. Her head is lined on the inside. She’s fully soft sculpted and anatomically correct. Yenay has hand embroidered sleeping eyes. Her blushing is made with a red orange bees wax crayon and is not permanent. Her arms are hand sewn to her body (they are floppy) and the legs are securely attached with both upholstery thread and polyester thread. Her head is attached with super strong nylon thread and then secured with ladder stitch all around to make it more neat and aesthetically pleasing. The head is very floppy. You need to hold her head when you carry her, just like a real baby. Yenay’s hair is a piece of black mohair fabric sewn to her head. You can gently brush her hair. She is weighted with glass beads inside bags in her torso and head only. Most of her torso is actually filled with glass beads to give her more weight. She fits loosely into newborn clothes and some preemie clothes.
Yenay is not a toy. She’s an art doll intended for gentle play by an adult collector or older child, 7 or older.
If you would like to see more photos of Yenay, you can see her album here.
If you would like to see a video of Yenay getting dressed, you can do so here.
As you can see Yenay is super fun to pose. She will go home with the outfit in the photos which includes:
- A handmade reversable diaper with safety pin
- A pink and white romper from Carter’s
- Hand crocheted pink and white sandals
- Hand crocheted pink headband with white flower
- Her toy baby doll
My babies all come wrapped in a blanket.
Yenay’s adoption fee is 210 USD plus shipping. Shipping inside Mexico is free. Shipping to the US and Canada is 33 USD. Shipping to other parts of the world is 50 USD.
If Yenay has touched your heart and filled it with love, maybe you’d like to take her home with you.
If so, please comment on this post saying you’d like to adopt her. I will take entries for her until tomorrow Sunday February 15, 2020 at 6pm EST. If there is more than one entry I will draw a name.
By commenting you agree that you are 18 years or older. Please do not comment on behalf of someone else, that is just not fair for others. Once a family has been chosen I will send a PayPal invoice that is due upon receipt.
Yenay has found a loving home. Thank you so much!
Good luck if you wish to take this loving baby home. I am currently working on some toy dolls and butterflies. They should be ready soon.
Stay healthy my friends.
Read you soon.
Hugs and love,
