Iris's Froggy Stuff.


You guys are familiar with My Froggy Stuff, right?  I only just discovered her! What great ideas! I'm a big fan of using things around your house and this was right up my alley. What a great way for me to bond with the girls and selfishly indulge my 1/6th passion at the same time!

 Iris cut that wallpaper herself. Very exciting for her.


Iris proudly showing her work:

I thought the front could use some pizzazz so I took some thin carboard that came with a Barbie folding screen and cut it into strips to resemble flower stems. Then I had Iris color some flowers. I cut a little curtain shape out of scrapbook paper and there you go!
 
  Isobel, however had other ideas on how to use this house. Next up, kid sized house and projects for me!

 But first, I gotta find something to wear to Danielle and Rod's wedding!

smooches,

  1. Awww!! (^_^) My Froggy Stuff is awesome! I am working on the blog for my guests attending Rod and Danielle's wedding too. It was fun to dress everyone who is going. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  2. Dressing dolls is a lot like dressing myself. I look at the pile and go "I have nothing to wear!!!" Maybe I should start with a hat and work my way down...

  3. I also love My Froggy Stuff. I happened upon her via etsy. I love Iris's new home. It's very nice and colorful. I think we all are going to the wedding. This is so much fun.

    P.S. Your little ones are adorable. : )

    Happy Sunday!

  5. MFS is a crafting genius. That's so wonderful that you and the girls can now craft together. Every time I see your little ones, I just fall in love. How can you stand all that cuteness every day? Hurry up and get those dolls dressed! The overflow room is starting to fill up now.

    1. Got them dressed and took some shots but I'm unhappy with them. I'll post tonight anyway so they can be sure to get a seat!

    1. Thanks! And the best part is that I can tweak the tutorials a little bit for my own collection. I'm already setting aside boxes for lockers in the school I play to make eventually. I'd love to use that display case tutorial to help build my mini-market.

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 vitaplastica.com 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!

smooches,
dani
