Doll shoes. Pesky little doll shoes. Ever After High dolls have SLIGHTLY larger feet than Monster High Dolls. Sometimes. Not always. Sometimes they can swap shoes and sometimes MH shoes are just too small for EAH. This is what I have learned. After buying some MH shoes. So, I turned to one of the EAH … Continue reading SHOES for Wednesday
WEDNESDAY There are updates on the job front...mainly that I have a new one but some down time before it's in full swing. that means DOLLS. Let's take a look at Wednesday's journey. She started as on of three used dolls my stepmother included in my Christmas pack. This one was an Ever After … Continue reading Every Day is Wednesday.
This morning my friend Emily and I were talking about the traumas of the past year and Teen Titans Go, as 40something young women are wont to do. It's our habit to try and schedule a good face-time session each week. She's now watching Teen Titans Go, which excites me more than it probably should. … Continue reading Chibi and M size Raven
My spring break is here. This means things are getting done! This is in part because I work for a teaching dispatch company and when I'm not dispatched I don't get paid. So in this month of freedom I will get paid for the dance work but not the English teaching. Thus it's time for … Continue reading Jinx! She’s ready.
I just can't stop making Teen Titans Go dolls. This should be no surprise to anyone who knew me shortly after college when I started to amass a collection of female action figures. It seemed like a hobby that had limits because action figures were even worse back then about not producing or short packing … Continue reading JINX!
I haven't been around because illness took me DOWN. After two rounds of antibiotics, more nasal steroids, and the joy of three days in a row without kerosene fumes I'm almost better. Welcome to Finish-it-February, wherein I try to be frugal by focusing on finishing projects instead of starting them. Of course, as soon as … Continue reading Heads up! Finish it February!
Right now it's hard to prioritize things. I get home and everything shouts for attention: my bed, my need for nourishing food, my need to make that food, my crafts, the things I need to do for dance and the studio... Before I know it it's past my bedtime, way past, and I feel like … Continue reading New Hands Are Here!
Craftsmas is coming! Craftsmas is coming! Let’s be honest, every week is crafty up in here. The dark months are craftholes. I’m on medication for my anxiety and depression but when you add the darkness into that it becomes very easy to hyperfocus on a single task to release all the thoughts and energy...and one … Continue reading Beastie Boy
Sally has little boots and slumpy striped socks. My Freaky Friend doesn't have real shoes. She has red shoe-shapes covering wide, triangular leg ends. Nothing foot-like under the shoes. Like Bratz before them, oversized shoes are a HUGE part of the Monster high look. Doll Sally won't have the tiny little feetzies of film Sally. … Continue reading Sculpting Sally
Because I had left over air-dry polymer resin clay I decided to make Starfire her own Silky. To color the clear/white clay I had I added a little acrylic to a blob of clay and rolled/kneaded it until the pigment was evenly distributed. And I set to work rolling, pinching, and sculpting. The Silkie I’m … Continue reading Starfire 1.0 Finished
