Feels like I've been away forever. My husband got very sick with ulcerative colitis, and had his colon removed. Now he's living with an ostomy bag (permanent), and has lost his job because he no longer do heavy lifting. It's been rough around here lately, and very scary. He is home from the hospital (has been for a month now) and doing much better. He lost a ton of weight, and got down to 143 pounds.

Now that things are a bit more settled, I decided to start creating my dolls again. This is Rosanna, who was very much inspired by my husbands extremely thin appearance during the thick of it all. Even though it might be a bit taboo, I decided to leave her nude. I don't believe she looks vulgar at all, and hope I don't offend anyone with her bareness.


  1. I am so sorry for your husband! How horrible! I am sending positive thoughts for you both and big hugs! I think Rosanna is very special! She has a lot of feeling in her! All the Best!!!

  2. I'm so sorry to hear of your husbands poor health. I do hope life settles for you now. Creating art is a great way to cope with stress and Rosanna is wonderful, a true expression of emotion.

    Take care hun.x

  3. So sorry to hear about your husband. You are in my thoughts. Love your doll. She is really wonderful. Hugs.
