Bittersweet Acquisitions






As many of you may know, the lovely and talented Dani  of  Vita Plastica 
decided to leave the world of 1/6 and go on to BJDs.
This led to her parting with her extensive collection of Grandville. 
(She is still selling off the rest here.)

(By the way, her BJDs and her plans for their stories, are incredible. Even if you don't collect BJDs I highly recommend you keep an eye on what she is up to.) 

I sent her a message about her local drug dealer Morgan, and the couch you see in the above picture.
I had to twist her arm to get the couch. ;) 
(THANK YOU SO MUCH DANI!)
But in the end, I got two of my favorite things that once resided in Grandville.
Morgan is still a drug dealer on my side of the dollyverse, and she took the couch for her and her new boyfriend.

Introducing Ares, who went from this...


To this...


Re-painted and Re-rooted earlier this year, and I am just now getting around to posting him here.
I suck, just a lil.


They have quickly found much in common. 

Like their love of this couch, plaid prints, drugs, and....



Breaking in new furniture.

O.o


I'm going to be posting more and more gradually.
Working on the doll room this weekend and a Poppy re-root I cannot wait to finish and showcase here!

Oh yeah, and posting about the Homme with blue hair, plus two other lovely re-roots I completed.
Geez. I gotta get on this! ;)

Oh mini me....where are you?

Changes.

I know the title is ominous, but my life did not pan out the way I thought it might since my last post. (January. Yikes.) 

I had been working on some projects with much diligence, but we got a notice that our house was under foreclosure. I should clarify we paid rent to the homeowner. Our landlord thought it would be cute to destroy an entire family unit by taking and spending the rent money (that was to go toward the mortgage) since October of 2014. Apparently the (insert expletive here) doesn't care about the lives of others. So, my step-sister and myself decided to get an apartment in town close to our jobs. 
But my mom and step-dad, brother, sister in law, and my sweet little niece are still trying to find somewhere they can call home.

So, we've been trying to make this place feel like "home".
I'm a lil' ashamed of my hole in the wall apartment.
But we all start somewhere...

Here is the living room.

 

 


Totally off topic....

I made a BJD wig for this girl over the weekend.


(Need to take more picture of her when she's finished.) 
(^_^)


Okay, back to the tour...

My super sexy bathroom.


And by sexy I mean small.

 Really small.

The Doll Room...sorta.



Welcome to Hell House.


So, my brilliant brain managed to forget to take a picture of the kitchen, and the other bedroom.
Truth be told it is a disaster. The doll room needs new floor or carpet and then my sister will move into that room. Which means LOTS of stuff will be leaving the apartment.  But we will cross that bridge when we get to it. Everything is kind of up in the air and we've set it up to function.
*shrugs*

At least we have a roof over our head. For that, we're grateful. <3

A special thank you to those who purchased items from me during my time of moving.
If I could hug all of you, I would!  I do not know what we would have done without all of you.
<3 <3 <3


Okay, so to attempt a step back into normalcy here on this blog I will be sharing some pics of my latest custom dolls. Plus my mini me will be coming back as well.

They are quite grumpy from the move as shown below..

But my sweet boy Pickles is settling in comfortably.

Okay, make that comfortable with a side of evil?  O.O


To close out this entry I will leave you with a quick snap of a new blue haired devil I re-rooted.


Oh boy.
I think we're back in business...

Cat and her wee band of hooligans will be returning for some much needed mayhem. 

Stay tuned..

Hot New Man Alert! ;)

There is no reason not to jump-start the heart of this blog with some fantastic plastic!
(^_^)

I give you the newest heartthrob/woman eater...


His working name (for now) is Constantine.
I feel I should be ashamed and embarrassed to admit that, for all to see, but I'm not. 
;)

He started life as a Harley-Davidson Ken Doll from the 2010 gift set.
I should have a before picture, but with all the craziness in my life I spaced that some might like to see how he began his journey. 
I will try to do better next time. 




Until then, all you will have are a couple more hunky pictures of his finished look and this little monster...

Pickles the cat. 


I'm not impressed either, but the hot new man alert must go on. 

Constantine (yes I am chuckling) was re-rooted using Fiery Shadow Saran from Retro Dolls US
I added black saran underneath and in the part line, and he was given a partial re-paint, because the blue eyes just weren't working. 

*Re-read that, and now I'm chuckling more.* 

Someone had too much caffeine today. 
(^_^) 






Okay. Okay. 



 And to close this wacky post I must inform you that Constantine has already started tempting some of my gals into the woods. 
-.-
Poor Yuki.
He probably fed her some line of crap about what a good guy he is.
Good guys you barely know do not coax you into the woods at night with kind words. 
Yuki is new here too. 
That boy is already making messes. 
*sigh*

I think I will have more than enough to write about.
Don't you? 


*Hugs and love to each of you!*

From Cat and her Motley Crew of dolls!

2015 and I'm not making any promises...



I know I was less than here in 2014. There was a lot of change, and not all of it was good. 
I work a lot now, and don't have as much time for the doll side of my life. 
However, I do have ENOUGH time. 
I'm not making any promises, because that seems to burn up in flames.
 I know I am not the only person this happens to. I've seen it happen to many of you off and on. 
That is life, it's always ebbing and flowing.
 So, I am going to attempt to dust this blog off again and pick up 1/6th Cat's antics where we left off. 

I still read your blogs. 
I miss commenting and connecting. 
Admittedly I became quite reclusive in 2014, so please allow me to crawl back out from the hole I've been living in for the past year. 
Things will be shifting a bit as can be evidenced from the blog's new look (probably going to continue to tweak it.) 
Hope you can find it in your hearts to be patient with me as I fall into the newness of my vision. 

*Giant Hugs*
AND A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EACH OF YOU!!!

Not a Lifetime movie...


 I know I was away from the blog for a very long time, and I will spare you the excuses/details.
What is important to know is that I am back so you can
expect updates and stories on the blog again.
(^_^) 

If you haven't caught up with the other installments of Cat and her friends you can find them all...


Now let us pick up where we left off!! 
Yay! 
(P.S. I missed you ALL!!!) 



 Cat arrives at Sia's salon before work...













A few minutes pass and Cat finds herself reading a seedy article while she waits for her turn.











































Just before Natalie goes to follow Sia to a chair,
  London descends upon them with camera in hand...
(That boy and his "selfie" obsession.)










A little while later Cat makes it to work. 
Breathy and a lil' late, but not cut into ribbons.



Then she notices someone has placed a box on her desk...


Thank you ALL so much for your patience. 
I hope to post 1-2 of these per month!
(^_^) 

May each of you be well!!
<3 
Thank you for reading!!
*HUGS*
