About

My name is Rae Ann and I am the artist of these Little Jewel Babies. I have been 'reborning/newborning' for 14 years now. It has been so much fun and such a wonderful learning experience. I have also met many wonderful people all around the world.

All of my life I have loved dolls and real babies. My Dad told me when I was a little girl that I would have a dozen babies of my own some day. I let him know that I would be having two!!! He said that I loved babies to much to only have two. But I do have two beautiful children who are now adults. I have a daughter and son-in-law and a son and daughter-in-law. They are precious to me...And now I have 2 beautiful Grandsons which were born 8 days apart in 2013 and a new Granddaughter born in 2016...I am so in l♥ve with them!!!   

I did get my baby fixes while my children were growing up by having a day care in my home for newborns to 3-year-olds. I loved each and every little precious baby just like my own. They all brought me much enjoyment and laughter.

14 years ago I stumbled across reborn babies and was intrigued as to what they were. I found that they were the most beautiful realistic looking baby dolls. I fell in love with them! I had been thinking about doing something at home as a hobby for quite some time and I realized that this was exactly what I was looking for. I began to study and research on how to reborn/newborn a baby doll and then began to get my supplies together to start this new and wonderful adventure that I have been on since. I am still learning, studying and improving this art to this day. I am now using Genesis Heat Set Oil Paints and just love them. The texture they produce really add to the realism to each baby. And I love the durability of the paints. I am really impress with them...

I have experience in working with water and oil color paints. I made and sold porcelain dolls in the late 1980's and early 1990's. I learned to sew when I was 13-years-old and now I am in my fifties. Wow time does fly! I even made my own wedding dress in 1975. This comes in handy with the reborn/newborn babies as I sew their new cloth bodies and even some of them get a home sewn baby outfit made just for them. I have been knitting since I was 13 and you may see some knitted items on these babies knitted by me. Knitting helps me through the short and dark days of winter to stay awake till bed time! It is so much fun to make those little baby clothes. This adds to their uniqueness since no other baby will have the same thing to wear.

I hope you enjoy some of the feedback that I have received from around the world. It has been a pleasure for me to work with such wonderful people who have a love for babies and reborn/newborns. Please come back and visit my site often as new babies are added. You will see how unique and special each one is. And I hope you will fall in love with one and adopt one that will bring you much enjoyment over the years and will be passed down for generations to come. They are truly a 'One Of A Kind' oil painted masterpiece. God bless...

 

**Due to time restraints, I am no longer taking custom ordered babies. When I do have a baby available, I will put them on my site and send out notices to all that have signed up to be notified. You can do that by e-mailing me and requesting to be put on the notification list. I'll try to have a new baby available as often as I can due to my circumstances. Thank you for your patience and do come back to see if a new baby is available for adoption.**
