Alway be a little kinder than necessary.
I hope you are all doing well and enjoying some of the warm weather already. Here is very hot at the moment, but also very windy which is kind of nice, though the sound of the wind coming through the windows can get a little scary sometimes and I have a hyperactive imagination, don’t judge please, haha. I am also getting ready to take my first ever driver’s license test. So I am a little excited and nervous. Test is Saturday morning so wish me luck.
What else is new? Well, there is one more baby to meet before the end of this month; baby Alma. This sweet little girl has been patient, I have worked on her at the same time that I was working on some customs, so sometimes I would ignore her for a day or two while working on some other things. She actually waited for arms for three days, poor baby. Still she seemed ok with it. Always calm, always smiling, and actually trying to help me with everything I was doing in the studio. She even let me dress her in a Mexican inspired dress that I made by repurposing a child’s dress. She looks so cute and is perfect for this hot humid weather in Merida. Don’t get me wrong she still needs to be looked after just like any other baby, but she is a delight to take care of.
Some of Alma’s favorite things are well, the color pink, flowers, stories with magical characters, marshmallows, and raspberry tea, I give it to her luke warm, not hot of course. She also loves something I hate, geckos, I have no idea where she got that from, it was definitely not from me. Every time she sees one she wants to hold it and touch it, I always run out the room until my husband takes it out of there. He has taught her to touch the geckos gently before he puts them out in our back yard. So at least I am happy that she is not afraid of them. I made her a little axolotl since that is the cutest little salamander I could think of.
Alma is a 12 inches natural fibers art baby doll. She’s fully soft sculpted and anatomically correct. Her skin is DWE in red brown, her limbs are fully lined and firmly filled with clean wool and glass beads. Her torso is needle felted in two parts and weighted with glass beads. Her head is floppy but has some stability. You can prop her more easily to keep her head up. Her arms and legs have been hand sewn to her torso three times to make it extra strong. They are very floppy as well and bend at the elbows, thighs, ankles, and knees. Her head is firmly needle felted and soft sculpted in the mouth and nose. Alma’s eyes have been hand embroidered with DMC embroidery floss. Her hair is a black mohair wig, it has been hand sewn to her head. This hair can be gently brushed. Her blushing has been made with chalk pastels and bees wax crayons.
Alma is not a toy. She’s an art doll intended for gentle play by an adult collector or an older child 10 and up. She loves to be cuddled and held but just like you would be gentle with a real baby, you need to be gentle with her. She’s easy and fun to pose and feels great to hold too.
Alma will go home with the clothes and accessories you see in her photos.

- Handmade dress.

Alma’s adoption fee is 610 USDollars plus shipping. Shipping inside Mexico is free. Shipping outside Mexico needs to be by a private courier and fully insured because she is a weighted doll. Shipping to the US is 60 USDollars. Other parts of the world would need a revised shipping quote. Customs fees and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.
A short, 2 month payment plan is available to purchase her. However at least 1/3 of the doll’s price needs to be paid upfront, from which 50 Dollars will be taken as a non refundable deposit. Please ask for the payment plan rules if you don’t know them yet.
If you wish to adopt this kind baby girl just comment below stating that you would like to adopt her, your country of residence, if you need a payment plan, and remember that the email you write should be your PayPal email address. Comments will not be visible to the public, only to me. If you are unsure if your comment went through, just send me a private message and I’ll confirm it to you. Please only comment if you are completely sure you want this doll and are able to pay for her either in full or following the rules of the payment plan.
If you wish to see more photos of Alma you can check her album.
There is no video this time but if you check my Instagram you can see a little video of how she moves and feels.
I will take entries for Alma until Friday April 29, 2022, at 12 noon CDT. If more than one person is interested I will draw a name. Once a family has been chosen I will send a PayPal invoice that is due upon receipt.
As always by commenting you agree you are 18 years or older and please do not comment for someone else, that is just not fair for others.
In the event Alma does not find a home in the time stated above, she will be announced on Instagram and Facebook as ready for adoption.
Alma has found a loving home. Thank you so much for all the love for her.
