I’ve been seeing a lot of reflection posts for 2015, but I didn’t make it in time (working till the last day boo!). However, 2015 was a really exciting year for me in dolly-collecting, and I feel that I’ve matured a lot and really worked out what I love, don’t love, and what (dolly) resolutions I have for 2016. I think this might be my first -true- blog post, so beware, pic heavy, long, and rambly.
Nori, BB-8, Mr Husband and myself wish you all a very happy holidays!
The next couple of weeks is going to be hectic, but that doesn’t stop you from realising that your Sphero-BB-8 is the perfect size for a Blythe Doll Companion. My brother picked him up for me for Christmas, and of course, I had to get my favourite muse (with antlers) out for a Christmas spin, and explore.
A quick little update.
Now that I am a bit more versed with making full commission girls, and how long it takes to get all the pieces together and shipped to me all over the world I’ve updated my commissions page. I’m now filling slots for February, with the idea of ordering pieces for your girl by the middle of January, and having everything ready to start by mid-February.
If you have contacted me but don’t see yourself on the Feb waitlist please tell me so I can put you on!
I first learnt of Caramelaw after seeing one of her creations on the front cover of the Doll Scene by Louis Bou. I was completely enamoured by the whimsy and the fun of her gorgeous girls. They had a certain style and panache – they were clearly from another world and bursting out of an illustrated candy land. So when Sheena Aw aka Caramelaw asked if I could help her doll home from Auguste Clown, I of course readily agreed. So – for a short few days I had a very special visitor, and I’d like you to meet miss Meilla.
At 5am on my birthday I was slumped against my studio wall (I hadn’t gone to sleep yet) and I was wondering about my life decisions (I complain but I do love my work). Exhausted, I realised that a box had arrived… and boy did it make my day! I think of her as a birthday present to myself … everyone – meet Plum.
Oh man. I’m looking at my blog post calendar in my planner in shame. It’s been 1.5 weeks! I’ve had 4 posts planned in that period of time, but work has gotten the better of me (work, not even life! 1/3/4/5 am days, boo to you!). The weather has also been horrible, making it horrendous for doll work and sealant – and happy photographs. I’ve been a mopey lady the last week, the husband has even commented. A non-dolly me is a grumpy me it seems :D.
One thing that did perk me up though, was when Britt got to visit for a few days.
