Quickie Post

Hi guys,

Well, I've got some bad news.  We had a miscarriage last week. I'm still bummed out but I always make the best of a bad situation and look on the bright side. We are lucky it was early on. And it was such a surprise, we were really unprepared. We just downsized and got rid of all baby stuff.  And really, we are soooo close to the end of diapers and pull ups. It sucks to look so forward to something and have it snatched away but perhaps it was for the best, right?

It's hard to get back in the doll habit once you've been out of it but it's great therapy, no?

Anyway, I did some reorganizing and what not and I'm working on a few projects, so you'll see a post from me soon.

I feel so rusty! I need to do some experimenting so I can get back in the swing of these projects!

Anyway m'loves, I'll post something by the end of the week to let you know wuzzup in Grandville.

Fear Manor is now gone (will likely return), so Miss Fear is not feeling this homeless crap. She's demanded a new home immediately. I guess I'll have to find a body for that boyfriend I got her ages ago.



  1. I'm sorry Dani! My mother also had a miscarriage a while back, and was also thankful it was early instead of later. Maybe returing after a long hiatus will revitalize you with new ideas!

  2. Hello from Spain: I'm sorry to read about your abortion. The positive is that you were a few months. Courage. Keep in touch

  3. So sad to hear the news, but glad to see you are feeling well enough to post. We are looking forward to seeing more posts soon.

  4. I'm sorry to hear of your lost.

  5. Sorry to hear of your loss, Im sure it was for the best, if it wasnt for my Sister and Brother i wouldent be here (Thats what my nan says) Before my mum had me she lot two children in the middle of the pregnancy(both at diffrent times), Natasha and Ryan.
    Im sure You will be a mommy soon ;)

  6. Thanks Yellow Apple! I actually have two kids already, so we have our hands full as it is.

  7. Oh, Dani... I'm so sorry. Your attitude is admirable, but I know it is still a loss. Healing Hugs! Rx

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!
