About the Artist

My name is Brenda Haydel-Lacoste. I am the reborn artist behind the scenes of Precious Creations by MiMi. I live outside the New Orleans, Louisiana area with my husband Larry.  We have five children and  five grandchildren who all call me MiMi and Larry GiGi.

Reborning, I have found the passion of my life in reborning these precious little babies.I cannot begin to describe the joy that these babies have brought into my life. It brings such wonderful memories of when my own children were babies and it seems that I can recapture those moments through reborning. It is my way of expressing how much I have for the love of babies and life. It was the missing link in my retirement years.  Through the years, I took many kinds of art classes, never  knowing that it would take me  through the most rewarding years of my life.  These babies are works of art and I take it very seriously.  This art has to come from the heart and that is what the passion is all about. My heart and sole are put into each little one and  there is nothing overlooked. Please be assured that I use the highest quality materials found. My goal is to create the most realistic baby that will be treasured as a heirloom for many generations. 

My hope is that I can bring that same joy and happiness to someone who has the same love for dolls.

Hugs, Brenda

She is absolutely amazing! The most beautiful doll I have ever seen. I LOVE her. I can't wait for you to make me a boy out of that mold. I have a feeling you will be making tons of dolls for me and my family! You are an amazing artist and she smells so good!! How did you get her to not smell like paint? Thank you a million times. I don't even know what to see except she's amazingly beautiful. Thank you so much. Let me know when you have time to reborn me a boy and we'll figure out hair and eyes. Oh and her eye color is perfect. Just beautiful.
