Yay! My dolly mail brought my newest arrival. Thanks Amanda-Ruth, she is more gorgeous in person.

 I finally got myself a Cinnamon Girl and she told me her name is Talia. I <3 her! Perfect for ADAW and 52 weeks of Blythe photo.

(Yea, she jacked Anais' dress and Beatrice Vest Scalp. LOL )

MSD Indecision

I currently have a BBB Lucky girl in pink resin, a 5SD Tong Tong (floating head) and a MNF Luka sleep head (sold and will ship the end of this week). I used to have a BBB Ariel WS with mature body but gave her to my oldest daughter because I'm not a fan of the large bust on the mature body.

Now here's where the problem lies... I know I want an MSD with small bust and I'm leaning toward getting the BBB Espree because I really like the Sprite sculpt BUT 5SD is running an event and I could get an MSD plus a body for my Tong Tong PLUS a free tiny and head of my choice for an EXCEPTIONAL price.

I know, I know buy what appeals to me and don't purchase just because it's a bargain. Man BJD decision-making sucks!!!

My headless YoSD 5Stardoll Tong Tong with company faceup in Normal Yellow resin that I adopted from PrincessTomato. Thanks again, she is so gorgeous in person. Now to get her a body. LOL

Isn't she beautiful?

My Lucky Girls In Their New Outfits

So my American Girls let me know they felt left out because Tallulah, Zoë, Maya and Anais got new clothes and they didn't, SO I dedicated my day to making my girls some new outfits.

Left to Right:: Alyssa, Alanna and Alexa 




Don't they look cute in their new outfits? They are MUCH happier now. ^n^ Poor Mandy couldn't make because she is getting a spa treatment. I hope to include her in the next photo shoot of the girls.

What Are These?

I made these to go with the skirts for 3 of my lucky girls.

Whose Skirts Are These?

I wonder which of my lucky girls I made these skirts for... Any guesses???

Anais Enjoying Great Outdoors

Anais enjoying the triple digit weather here in sunny So Cal in her new tank and hot pants set (made by me).

BJDs Are Addictive and Resolution

It's true! They are just as addictive as Blythe. I had 5 Neo Blythe PLUS 17 LPS Blythe and Petite Blythe Cinnamon Girl. I have re-homed 2, Cappuccino Chat and Friendly Freckles (she went to my oldest daughter), bringing my current count down to 3. I'll admit I do have one of my dream girls on layaway. I'm excited because I'll be getting Neo Blythe Cinnamon Girl who will be paid off on the 26th and on her way home to me!

Now back to the BJD addiction. I have a few resin dollies in various stages of layaway.

Current Layaway List (in no particular order):
* Lati Yellow Xmas Elf ver Coco - 3/6
* Pukipuki Cupid (w/ both blank OE & SP) - 3/5
* 5Stardoll Tong Tong (head w/ company faceup) - Paid Off (Ships :: 7/18/2012)
* PukiFee Luna - 1/4
* Lati White Sp. Kong - 1/3
* Minifee Luka (blank sleep head) - Paid Off (Already sold... long story short, MNF bodies cost roughly $400 by themselves after shipping. TOTALLY out of my budget.)

No more new dolls until current dolls on layaway are paid off! Okay, at least more than half of my outstanding layaways are paid off. ^_^ I'm serious because I really want a LittleFee Luna or Rachel and/ or Ante. Not to mention my Tong Tong needs a body which I'm not sure if I should order straight from the company or go through Denver Doll Emporium which would be cheaper BUT a longer wait. Either way it's a pre-order and it'll take minute before it ships. Decisions, decisions, decisions... I'm definitely learning patience is a virtue.

BUT I can't put anymore dolls on layaway before getting my current ones almost completely paid off, otherwise I'd be working to pay layaways which wouldn't be good considering I have 5 human children (12 yo to 13 mos) who need necessities as well as wants, good thing my hubby is really supportive. So, I've decided to sell my dolly wears (for 18" American Girl, Blythe and tiny BJDs like Bobobie, Lati Yellow, PukiFee, PukiPuki and Lati White Sp) on etsy to help fund my dolly buying plus I need this creative outlet to fill the creative void in my life. So be on the lookout for sneak peeks and shop announcements.

New Arrivals and Departures

Well A LOT has happened since the last post... There was a death in the family, I received my VERY first BJD and also re-homed 2 girls.

So I guess I'll start with a photo of my current Neo Blythe and BJD dollies.

13/52 - Among Giants

Meet my girls: Zoë (PD2A w/ FrF scalp), Tallulah (Bobobie Lucky Girl in Pink Resin), Anais (PD2S w/ BV scalp) and Maya (Custom SBB w/ Faux Fur wig made by me ^n^) I'm so grateful to have Tallulah in my life. She has re-ignited my creative spirit and I've been able to get behind my sewing machines after a 3 year hiatus due to the death of the very person, my Grandma, who taught me how to sew and encouraged my creativity. The dresses on the girls in the above photo were made by me. Here's a couple more photos of Tallulah and my handmade creations. Tallulah's New Dresses Polka Dots Outfit I'm glad to be able to get behind my sewing machines and be creative again. There are A LOT more dresses in the works for Tallulah, my Blythe girls and YOUR girls too!! ^u^
