Goodies from Etsy

Hi doll friends!

I was going to wait to show you my new goodies from the magical land of Etsy. I got a new doll and wanted to intro her with the new items but she just wasn't having it. She stated that she had not signed any release documents indicating that she or her likeness would be used to endorse products of any nature. Once she threatened legal action, I decided to just give her her own post at a later date. Jeez.

First up is my first time order with Nommy Miniatures! For my project, I need some food that will hold up in front of the camera. *hint* Each of these sets came with two items each so it was double the value for me. This is my first polymer food purchase too. These pieces are beautifully realistic.


Next are my friends at Blinkydoll's Boutique!

After having such a good experience with the Blinkydoll gals, I went to them with a custom order that was rolling around in the back of my head for a while. I wanted a desk. A simple desk. Not an L shaped office desk (but I will be wanting that at some point...), not an impractical lady desk or one that required me to paint, but a simple wooden desk that could be in a teenager's room or a mature person's office or an extra table for parties.

But leave it to Blinkydoll to exceed my expectations like crazy! [PS: This order is for the custom desk and for the typewriter set.]


Fabulous die cast antique typewriter!

They allowed me to substitute wine and savory nibbles for the mulled wine with sweets.

They included not one, but two baskets! Loads of paper goods, folders, blueprints, etc.



Included with the desk were lots of fun goodies. Silver perfume bottles and a tiny Eiffel Tower. 

Krispy Kreme doughnuts!

Two buckwheat pillows of mainly upcycled kimono fabric.

Another great quality shopping bag, a potted plant and a tiny bottle filled with shells, rocks and sand (or maybe salt?)

And now, my beauty. I send them a picture of a super basic desk and they seriously turned it up a notch!

This looks more like an antique desk than I could have hoped. I see endless applications!

The top is a beautiful plank style.

They also made me a hutch for the top. It's in a different wood so the stain looks a bit different. I'll use that for when I'm doing a home office or use it as a wall mounted unit.

They threw in a chair they found on ebay and kept it bare at my request. I'll probably paint it lime green or something.

And they threw in a chalkboard too! It was missing a top piece so they included this piece of wood I could paint and use.

Doll stories are dueling for who will use this set first!
 They've just added new goodies to the Etsy store so be sure to pay them a visit.

Next time, come meet the doll I never knew I wanted until a doll friend (I'm going to start calling them Dolleagues) corrupted me.

smooches,
dani

  1. I love Blinkydoll's, they are so amazing and generous. The little personal extras they added to my order for a sewing machine were awesome. I now look for reasons to buy more things from them ;)

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
