Oh Don't Look So Suprised

Well, in my last post I mentioned my other obsession, overachiever housewife stuff/manic organizing. So I've been on the housewife blogs and started how to update and improve my Home Management Binder.  There are templates for everything, grocery shopping lists, daily, weekly, monthly schedules, Xmas shopping list, etc.

I started working on making schedules for everyone in the house, planning menus, etc.  Fun stuff.

Then I get to work and can't remember what doll thing is on order. What is the address for my trading buddy? I want to place an order on The Doll Page and I can't remember who I ordered with on Doll Divas so I can give the new person a reference. What follows is a manic search through my various email accounts.

Hmm, couldn't I use some templates to organize doll world? So I decided to create a few.

Feel free to do whatever you want with them. If you change and improve them, let me know. I just threw them together so they may need changing once they are in use. Let me know if you have any issues with them. They are Windows 7 docs so let me know me know if you can't open them. Let me know, let me know, let me know. I guess I say that a lot.

I'm excited about working with them.You know me, I've got 6 crafty projects going at once.

I may create some kind of a scheduler later. I'm working on couple of reroots, so those will be on the Doll Customization form and a couple of doll vehicle projects so that will be on the Doll Projects form, so I may need something to bring it all together. Maybe a simple calendar...We'll see.

Okay back to my hiatus.


  1. Oh, but I am surprised! That break was shorter than Jay-Z's retirement. Those are awesome lists! I'm not a list person, but if I were, I would be using all of them. I do have one small suggestion. On the Doll Inventory sheet, having a space for date purchased might be good. Enjoy your break! See you in a few days. LOL.

  2. Hahah! Thanks Vanessa. I'll add that.

Doll Dyeing

So I had this BJD friend with this sad doll that I just fell in love with.  I knew they had issues bonding and I knew that baby had to be mine. I told her to let me know if she ever wanted to sell. She didn't do that but listed her anyway. (I thought we were cool, man.)  I was very lucky that the first person who wanted her stepped aside.  I thought if I lost this girl I would have a breakdown.

You see, she was very special.  She had a history.  Here's what I can gather:  she was purchased by this shady ass dude in the hobby. Everyone knows he is shady. 
So he hired a faceup artist to paint the face and give her scarring. He never explained that he wanted raised scars, not gashes in the resin.  I've seen the proof that she wrote up the agreement for this guy and the work was just GORGEOUS.

He claims she damaged it. Whatever.  So apparently there were attempts from this guy to sell her with no luck and he eventually gave it away and my doll acquaintance won her.  She dyed h…

Re-introducing Aniata and her Diorama

Hello Doll Peeps!

I have loads of new items for sale so click on the shopping ladies on the right. Most of the first tier stuff is gone so lots of discounted stuff!

When we last spoke, my doll was named Kala. I had posted her in the BJD Addicts group and a few people remarked that she looked like a Taino. My family is Haitian and my husband's is Puerto Rican, the Tainos lived in both. I thought this was fortuitous. So I emailed my aunt, a fan of the Taino and told her about the doll and that I needed a new name. Kala was always supposed to be temporary and I feared it was taking hold.

She said, "I feel like her name is Aniata." And I knew it was right. It's hard to get the tongue around but if you just pronounce the T softly, like in Anita, then it's much more natural.

Anyway introducing Aniata!  (Doll nudity ahead.)

I've been working on the hut like crazy since the last post. While I waited for paint and glue to dry, I made Aniata stuff. I made her necklace…

An Official Farewell

Hi Guys,

I don't know if you're still reading this but I'm officially taking this blog offline. It was so fun to be part of the 1/6th scale doll community and on Facebook at least, I still am. But I feel like the BJD community is mostly on other platforms.

I'll always be at and you can reach me at the gmail of the same name.  Hey, I may even start a blog over on the site, so who knows?

Here's a picture of nearly all my doll family (missing Doll Chateau Alma, who doesn't have a face up yet, and an Impldoll Martin head.)

EDIT: Blogger will STILL not let me comment. haha.  Anyway, due to the very positive response, I will not take this blog down. I remember how heartbroken I was that Smidgehouse didn't leave hers up. So I'll keep this here forever, okay?

I might even post a link to any blog posts on my website. See you...always!

It's be great collecting and growing with you!
