Welcome to My Page!

Collecting and designing for Barbie is my passion! I started collecting about 3 years ago when I bought the Happy Holidays Barbie and Angel of Joy Barbie for my daughter's first Christmas. Shortly thereafter, my mother gave me a box full of Barbies from my childhood. Trying to identify and clean and repair the dolls and outfits brought back so many great memories that I started collecting vintage, as well as newer collector Barbies. Since I could only afford vintage "fixer-uppers", that led into rerooting vintage as well as reproduction dolls and recently, into design. I have auctioned some of my designs on eBay with very pleasing results! This has led to a lot of custom work. Below are some examples of my work.

My Reroots

Reproduction bubble cuts rerooted as swirls - platinum blonde, copper brown, brunette, and ash blonde.

Reproduction bubble cuts rerooted as a Brunette American Girl, American Girl Sideparts - ash blonde and brunette, and a Midnight Color Magic.

Reproduction TNT's rerooted as Marlo Flips - brunette and platinum blonde.

These reproduction TNT's have gotten unusual reroots - neon pink, neon orange, platinum swirl, and Busy Barbie hairstyle.

Reproduction Francie has been rerooted into the "No-Bangs" Francie, blonde, brunette, and AA. My most popular doll, "No-Bangs" Francies have gone to live in Guam, Australia, and Japan!

Some reroots from my collection - two vintage Skippers rerooted with modern hair, a reproduction Midge rerooted into a "Bend Leg" look and given rooted eyelashes and additional eyeliner, and a vintage Francie rerooted as a titian!

Barbie as Bild Lilli

Formerly reproduction ponytails, these Barbies have been transformed into replicas of the German Bild Lilli, the doll that Barbie was designed after. They have received complete facial repaints, and their front hairline has been rerooted and hair restyled. Here are One Of A Kind (OOAK) Lilli's and "Ready To Dress" Lilli's. Hair colors available - platinum blonde, lemon blonde, honey blonde, brunette, and titian. Lilli has been another one of my most popular dolls! She has also travelled all over the world - England, Scotland, Japan, Korea.
