Au Revoir For Now

Hi folks,

A quick post to let you know that I am quitting the blog.  Blogging is not my hobby, working on doll stuff is. How many hours are used in rushing through stories for the blog, taking pictures for the blog, posting, returning comments? I have a full time job, husband and two small children. There is just no time for it all. I need to be working on the projects, not just posting about them. I need to spend some of this online time learning new techniques, doing research, making new friends.

Also, I'm feeling a need to decrease my online presence. I deleted my Tumblr and my Ipernity (I had to search my email just to remember the name of that site).

However, I intend to increase my online presence in other places, including forums, my actual website and my beloved Facebook. Maybe I'll even try video stories. I don't usually enjoy watching them but Muff is changing my mind!

From time to time, I may do a blog post to announce a story update or something but otherwise, I'm done.

So you can find me here: (currently being redesigned)

Gosh I feel so much lighter.

I'm not gone from your life. I'll just catch you in some other section of doll land.



  1. Dani,
    I REALLY hate to see you leave regular blogging. I am feeling the same way lately, just waiting to see if it passes. See you around the blogosphere! :-)

  2. Hi Dani and congratulations on your decision. You aren't leaving the DAF community altogether; you're spending your DAF time in a different venue. I look forward to seeing your projects on FB and to seeing you in more of the doll community site.

    Take care and ENJOY!

  3. I think I'll do the same, nobody will care about my disappearence (?). I didn't know about your website, I definetely visit it. See ya on facebook <3

  4. Hello from Spain: I understand your lack of time to blog. I work full time and I have children. However, I have not facebook. I prefer the blog. Best of luck. Keep in touch

  5. We understand. Enjoy your dolls, your husband, and your kids. I will catch up with you on FB from time to time. I'm not there to often, but when I am, I usually see your posts. Take care!

  6. I definitely understand your decision. I've liked your Facebook page so I'll see you there. Take care!

  7. Well, I'm going to miss you but I totally understand. Have fun playing!

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!
