Electronic Burnout!

Ever just get sick of blogging? I never get sick of writing but doing photos, uploading them, explaining, organizing is just giving me a headache! Maybe it's just because I'm sick and I've just started a new job and my brain is just SPENT at the end of the day.  Or my home computers each have their own separate issues.

Rest assured, my pretties, that I am still doing my thing. Nearly done with my airplane and researching the next big Grandville project (I'm keep my mouth shut this time). Dani will get married one of these days but I decided that Dani and Felix need a wedding present. A new house! Way to procrastinate, Human Dani!

  2. Grrr...I posted the comment. It showed up twice, so I deleted one of them. Yep, you guessed it...both disappeared. Yes...technological burnout is imminent even more than before! lol

  3. I know the feeling. This morning I set out to do a quick story and post. I got to the studio and started and stopped at least 10 projects before settling in on what I was supposed to be doing to start. Now I have to get into sewing and food making mood. I have so many projects, I started using a project management software. It has helped.

  4. I know the feeling. I have moments of total doll lock out. I don't look, dress, or play with them when I get to that point. After work at times I don't even get near my computer for days. We'll be here when you get back to it :O)

  5. Looks like everyone has been there. I am feeling the same thing right now. I came to your blog looking for inspiration!! that's okay, you validated my feelings instead. that's something. ;-)

  6. So glad I'm not alone! Vanessa, remember those doll project organization sheets I made a while back? Haven't touched them since!!

    Maybe it's spring fever. This need we have to flush out the old and streamline!

  7. The good thing about the project management tool is I get a daily email telling me the last time I updated the list. Since I am addicted to email, I always open and then look to check some things off the list. Otherwise I would never look at the list either.

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!
