I Can't Take It Anymore

Look, crafting for the kids is fun and all but I am missing my dolls! Facebook ruining my writing style. I can only think in short blurbs. I need my dolls, my blog and mostly my awesome doll friends.

And you know what, I'm still desperate for the kids to go to bed. But now, after they're in bed, I'm pacing the house wondering what else I can do but prep kiddie crafts! Corset Kitten had it right when she told me I had to keep writing. I'm craving it desperately.

So the plan is this: the week after Christmas, I'm moving the girls into one room. Then Iris's room (which was the original Barbie room) will be their classroom. (Their class room is currently in the old Barbie room/craft room). Their classroom/playroom will have lots of space and room for the ridiculous lesson plans I've been doing.

Anywho, look for me near the beginning of the year. Let's make some drama again!


smooches!

  1. Does it make me a terrible person to say that I'm happy you'll be returning to the doll world LOL? I've missed the crazy antics of Hanna and am going through what could possibly happen to Felix and Dani! Try to find a balance. Post when you feel like it and try not to pressure yourself. That's what I do :).

  2. Hey, welcome back, at least to some degree. You've totally been missed! I'm so the same-- hyper spastic all or nothing, lol. One of these days we'll find that magic balance, eh? Also, facebook is the devil. Looking forward to seeing you post again, babe! Hugs!

  5. So good to see a post from you. If you figure out how to handle it all...PLEASE...shoot me an email of how you do it, LOL. I average 2 to 3hrs of sleep every night because I have to create learning materials for my little visual learner. I do enjoy making materials for her and one-upping the teachers/providers who said she wasn't getting something, only to have her show them up, I miss my doll time like nobody's business. :( I figure that's why I'm so darn cranky lately...I need my fix! And by fix, it's either gotta be more time for me to do photo stories or drama like I like it from Vita Plastica. ;)

    1. Oh Tracy, I have no idea how to handle it all. Or how to even handle a fraction of it. When the busy season at work is over, that's one thing. I can lesson plan all day. But now? We'll see!

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
