All about me!

 

Rhonda Ingram Calhoun, creator and owner of CreamSoda BJD

Well over the past 30 years or so I have probably touched on every craft known to man. Not a bad thing unless you live with me and can't get used to the fact that I usually start by taking up one room….then 2….3 until I pretty much can call the whole house my craft room :)

 

About 4 years ago I began sculpting static sculpts in polymer clay. I loved being able to bring something to life out of a simple lump of clay and it had me addicted even if only I could tell what the end product was.

 

It wasn't long before I stumbled across the world of ball jointed dolls (bjd's). These amazing dolls could pose, show attitude and yes I think a little soul too!

 

Hooked I was and began CreamSoda Fashions, one of a kind designs and outfits for my new found dollies. I quickly evolved into doing faceups on my own dolls and then for customers.

My work found new homes all over the world and I've met wonderful doll collectors in places I never even heard of ….who knew :)

 

Well what's the next stage in this story of evolution? You may wonder…..

The next logical step….hmmm logical isn't a word I usually use and not one I've ever heard anyone use to describe me.

 

My own BJD sculpts YAY!

 

I began about 3 years ago with a few really bad attempts at it. I taught myself along the way and put everything I had learned in the past with the long road of arts and crafts I had tried plus a ton more.

 

My work having expanded from bjd clothing into sculpting and making custom resin eyes found the need for a name change… and so CreamSoda BJD came into existance

 

After 2 years of sculpting on and off with breaks for sanity ….and life, my first doll "Cassie" came to life.

Now my second girl "Lily" is on her way to being finished. Here's a glimpse of her still in paperclay

The path has been a long one but the journey simply amazing and I can't imagine doing anything else now.

 

I thank my lucky stars everyday for a husband that supports my work in every way and for all the great people who have brought one of my dolls HOME

 
Dolly hugs and squishes,

Rhonda
