Making creepy baby dolls

I'm having way too much fun . My heart beats too fast , my mind gets ahead of my hands . I'm too happy ..... do you get like this ? Sometimes creating things is dangerous , [it's too addictive ]
I can't take it .

Tell me if you like these . If you don't like them don't tell me .... it will crush me , ha ha
