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!



  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!

  4. MFS is great. I have tried a few of her ideas and amazed I never thought of it before :O) Your little ladies look very happy with their new house.

    I'm working on my guest(s) for the wedding too.

  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!

  6. MFS is the bomb! I'm glad you two could do it together! That makes for a nice day. You guys will have to make more of her project to keep things interesting! Happy Crafting!

    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.

  7. Dani I love the house and I'm going to kidnapped your little girls one day and have a play date; they so cute!

    1. Thanks honey. I think they'll be featured more on the blog. They are crazy for dolls!

  8. Adorable, and another attendee for the wedding! I can't wait to see what they wear!

The Arrival of Kala

My first first-hand BJD has arrived!  She's a Dollmore Keeley Sum purchased through Denver Doll Emporium. She arrived with a broken foot joint so DDE is getting Dollmore to send me another. It was fairly distressing to open the package to THAT surprise, but she's so beautiful, she immediately captured my heart.

I recently made arrangements to sell Sunnie and I can see it is totally for the best. THIS is what a new bjd owner should feel. Something like maternal pride, an obsessive need to care for her.

Her working name is Kala (not Eden anymore). We'll talk about her back story in another post but for now, all you need to know is she's an early Neolithic woman. Here she is wearing a wig by D. Resin on Flickr. She's amazing.

This is Kala's stuff I've been collecting.

Here is a size comparison of the Dollmore Model F body and the older Dream of Teen by Dream of Doll body.

You know me, peeps, I have a need to make doll environments as strongly as my need to h…

So Where Were We?

Hello my friends!

Man I have been slacking. I got so into the Roku situation that I have completely neglected the dolls. And since my car died and I now have a car note, my insane doll shopping spree is at a close. Except I found the 1960s Reading Deluxe Dream Kitchen (minus table and chairs) at a thrift store for $35. Then there was this cute pitcher there (on the dishwasher) and a Gibson guitar, so...(forgive the cellphone pic).

Anyway I hope to getting back to a craft/diorama focus in my doll work.

Can I be honest? I am terrified of my camera. I've avoided it since my last post. Setting up lights takes forever and changing them for every scene and the cords and the scary wiring in this house. Then taking 100 pics and those being all wrong and doing it again after I already took down all the damn lights. Ugh.

So whatever. When I do a glamour shot I'll fiddle with lighting and post production. But for photostories, eff it.

The following shots are done with a flash and auto-f…

BJD: Vinyl to Resin

So I think people really wants to know why I am taking this plunge, or maybe you don't give a crap but I'm going to tell you anyway.

Maturity: Not saying that 1/6th folks aren't mature!!! But there is something very mature about the BJD hobby that is populated with so many young people. Depending on the company or customizations, you may have to wait up to forty effin' weeks. That is how long it takes to make a human. It takes patience. And you're going to take time to make the right choice. I'm resigning myself to not seeing my first doll until my bday in November. The dolls and accessories are not always cheap. You have to budget yourself, save up and earn that dang doll.You need a gentle touch when you're handling these dolls. You can't afford to damage them. They make special travel cases for them! Dropping them could mean seriously damaging a nose. They yellow in time and if you keep them in the sun. You have to find a place to keep them safe.(Crap…
