I have been tagged again!!!

Ok so I have been tagged again and will try my best this time to make it work!! 5 things few people know about me:

1) I hate sleeping, it is a waste of precious dollmaking time
2) I want to get my private pilot's license one day
3) I wish I lived in the south so I could breath in the winter ( can't breath in cold weather, asthma)
4) I need to become vegan again very soon, but I love butter too much!!
5) My perfect body lives down deep inside me, and one day I hope to be the one to help it get out, but I love butter too much!!

Here are the five people I tagged:

MIXED MEDIA Jester Doll

I always forget to put the photos in backwards, but oh well. Here is Jonx, (haha shanna!!). He is my latest mixed media doll. A court Jester and his jester scepter.



very fun to make, but most time consuming...

Thursday, December 20, 2007

OH yeah gonna be a Gramma!!

My oldest daughter Mandy, and her hubby Kevin playing. Yes she is a singer too!! They are expecting their first baby in July!!


MORE MIXED MEDIA

oK, Here is another mixed media doll. She is done in fairy paper applied to her torso, and legs. The photos don't do her justice, as she has swarovski crystals, and glittered wings. Her hair is a new yarn I found that fits her perfectly. Her wings are made of clay, then distressed and glittered in ultra fine glitter. She was fun to make, an is available on ebay this week. Thanks for looking!!



She sits just 5" tall and sits well alone.



She is sealed in varnish, and button jointed for posing.

SHANNA MARIA in the studio

Shanna in the studio. The recording is almost done!! I can't wait!




MIXED MEDIA BUMBLE

In continuing to grow and develop in the art of dolls, I decided to try my hand at "mixed media". I found it fun, very time consuming, but satisfying.


The bee is made of osnaburg, then the paper and fabric work is applied, and sealed. The button jointed for posing. Then accents added. I am pleased with the results.

NO orders will be taken at this time. They are one of a kind from my own original and copyrighted design. I hope you like them as much as I have enjoyed creating them!!

TINIES

It probably seems dumb to take pictures with your dolls, but you can never really tell the size of a doll from the photos. I sometimes stick my hand in there to show how big they are, but decided to take a photo with me in it so you can really see. My husband said that the one photo looks like Spice is swinging at me with his spoon. He probably is since he doesn't care for his photo to be taken, he is camera shy.

Spice and me



Well it is so hard to tell the size of a doll from a photo, and sometimes I add a hand in there, but this time I decided heck, why not just take one with me holding one.. so here are a couple with Spice and me together.. I kinda look goofy, but I love my tinies...robin

I've been tagged too!!!

from my new friend Brenda of My backyard garden...now there's an artist!!!

1) I am obsessed with making dolls, it is all I do and it is fun to watch them change and grow with each doll.
2) On my farm I have 4 horses and one miniature donkey called Jack, 4 dogs, 1 duck, 1 rooster watch dog, way too many cats... I bought the farm so I could have all the pets I wanted..and I do!!
3) I also met my hubby through a dating site, he contacted me cuz I had long hair (still do) and it was also just to be nice!!! the big attraction for me was his initlas "PhD" he is a scientist, wow I love his brains!!!
4) I play guitar and love to sing, used to be in bands and such, and on occasion enjoy karaoke.
5) I am a registered nurse, and work private duty caring for a girl with cerebral palsy who loves to watch me make my dolls... so see, I never have to stop making them!! ARE THERE MEDICATIONS FOR THIS?

Holiday smiles

Not too much to say today. I am working on a cute little gingerbread doll. It is turning out better than I had in mind...but dolls have a way of doing that without my help. It is interesting how you can start with a piece of flat, ugly fabric, and end up with a person! Is that how God feels? it is a cool feeling...well i will post him/her soon as it is done... thanks for your time.. robin

INTRODUCTION NOVEMBER 27, 2007

hi everyone!!

My name is Robin Armstrong Seeber.



I have enjoyed creating since I was old enough to walk. My mother is my ultimate inspiration, God rest her soul...and I create through her. I am self taught, other than my mom, and learn the hard way most of the time. My dolls are my own design and they are copyrighted, unless otherwise stated. You can find me on ebay by the ID: outsidetheboxprimitives, and all dolls are one of a kind.

My latest fun news, is that the Asthon-Drake Galleries contacted me about my dolls, and how much they like them. I am waiting to hear more from them at this time. Keep your fingers crossed, and wish me luck!!! thanks for peeking at my blog and keep in touch!! Robin



Here is some of my work:
