Introducing Lucia

Originally, I was designing this doll as a commission.  Unfortunately, or I should say fortunately I had a mini doll showing at my home last night at the request of my friend Carol.


 Carol has been spreading the word about my dolls around the community and amongst her friends. Well, a few of them wanted to drop by and take a look at some of my work and possibly purchase some of the dolls I had to sell. 


Lucia was sitting on my work space ( I had just finished her along with another that I was getting ready to ship out) and an elderly gentleman who had come along ( he was actually the cab driver of one of the women who came to purchase) spotted her and said that he would like to purchase her!


 I was a little dumbstruck because I did not even know that he was looking at the dolls LOL. He was actually speaking to my husband while the other women were looking at each doll. Well needless to say, she sold on the spot and I managed to sell two others as well. I also got a commission for another doll for next month! 


What a blessing it was to have sold three dolls (cash) and have a commission on one, especially when I was not expecting it! I often paint just because I love it and get so much pleasure out of crafting and just creating these dolls. Wow!


Thanks goes out  first and foremost to God from who all blessing flow...


 To my friend Carol for being a blessing to me by spreading the word of Chynadoll Creations with folks wanting to own a Chynadoll Creation... 


Fran of www.thriftstoredolls.blogspot.com who goes out and finds these wonderful dolls for me to use as my canvas... 


and last but not least... my dear friend who commissioned me to do this doll in the first place. I have since spoken to her and told her about this and she was thrilled. I plan to do another doll for her in Lucia's place.  She totally understood. I also promised her that her doll will still go out on schedule and that I will not have another showing before I get to mail it out to her LOL.




So.... After all that LOL


Introducing Lucia






The before pic. She is one of many dolls that Frannie
has supplied me with. I am not sure who
she is.

Introducing Lucia. Lucia was named by Marty,
the gentleman who purchased her for his
granddaughter :)

Lucia has been repainted using artistic acrylics and
sealers. Her hair was styled in a twisted blow out
style.
Jewelry/sunglasses, dress and sneakers by Mattel. 


This is Lucia, Marty's granddaughter. He is
putting the doll aside for her until she is older :)

Marty asked me if I could put a bow in her hair
for his grandbaby. How cute!

    1. Thanks Jewel Snake:) my pet peeve is how some dolls look jacked up with harsh make up! I think the natural look is so much nicer!

  4. Oh you are amazing and so blessed, congratulations. But, you only deserve it and these people who are buying your creations deserve the love that you have put into each and every doll you work on. What a wonderful transformation on Lucia and what a lucky little girl who is to receive her. Thanks for always cheering me up and making me smile.

  7. Great looking doll! I love the natural lip color too! You don't see many Fashion Fever Nikki's around. She is on the 2nd shorter body. I would love to see how you do the hair but maybe you could show us at our firt doll meeting I am trying to book for the end of March or early April!

  9. Lucia is gorgeous! I love her hair! I understand why Granddaddy wanted it for his lovely granddaughter. She is too young for Lucia now, but I'm sure she will enjoy it when she gets older.

    Glad Ms. Leo helped you ID her. I knew she was a Nikki mold. Mattel used this face for a minute on their flat-footed dolls, too. I have a cheerleader with this sculpt.

    Frannie is such a blessing.

    Congratulations on your current and future sales and commissions!

  10. Her hair is fierce.

    And I am super jealous that you, frannie, and Ms Leo live close enough to have doll meetings. I want local dollie friends!!!

    I have a couple of heads i'd like to send you--they're basically ones I experimented with but don't love the sculpt on (a couple of artsys and one 80s AA barbie). If you feel comfortable sending me your address I'll send them to you, if not, I totally understand:D
