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…

On the Re-Organization Train!

Inspired by Muff and The Grandmommy, I decided to come out of my summer hiatus (what can I tell you, I got a Roku and have been abusing Netflix pretty heavily) and post my own reorganization attempts.

So here's some back story. I've destroyed the Grandville monarchy. Well, Dani has abdicated. This life isn't really for her.

She tried some charity work to give herself a purpose but she was never allowed to be in the trenches. Only cutting ribbons, donating over-sized checks to charities, smiling and shaking hands for the camera. The one time she tried for some personal connection, the press captured her in action and it was a scandal in the castle. The Peasant Princess, they called her.


Anyway, Victoire has taken the symbolic throne but she's not likely to have stories. But she will have photos because she is just gorgeous.

Part Two of the back story: (Hold on, I'm getting there.)
I haven't been posting much but Grandville continues to grow in number of residen…

Quick note about comments...

I love your comments. I think without them, I would go into a spiral of self doubt. But stupid Blogger will neither let me reply to your comments, nor even make comment of my own! It does this to me sometimes. I truly appreciate all of your comments. Thank you for the support!

If you have any clues on how to solve this problem, let me know! And also, if the blog has trouble loading for you, tell me. I'm trying to clean it up around here...

smooches!

Introducing Sabine and Dasha

In the heart of the cold cold city, big time music producer Sabine sits in her office.


Her assistant Zarrin walks in. "I've got that contract you asked for."
"Thanks Zarrin. How about some coffee?"
"Oh yes, of course."
"I'd like to not have to ask for it every morning Zarrin," Sabine says gently but firmly.

Sabine looks up. "What on earth? Honey, I hired you because you are a legendary party girl. This conservative get up has got to go."


Zarrin stands very still, hoping Sabine will stop staring at her with displeasure. "Is Dasha in yet? Will you ask her to come down?"
"Of course."


 Sabine begins to read over the contracts.


"Yeah. What do you want?"

"Well aren't we chipper this morning?"
"Your idiot assistant didn't make the coffee yet."
"My darling Dasha, you can finally have this office."

 "Finally. You don't even appreciate it. You're never here…
