I haven't blogged for several days. But that is because tomorrow is the last doll meeting/party for the year. Next meeting will be taking place sometime in January. I have been a busy girl getting ready! :) I finished cleaning up donations this week, and I took a couple of pictures (please excuse the poor quality of some of the pics in this post, as I have been taking them on the fly)...
It's a rather large box which is awesome! I went through my stuff again, and found more to get rid of. I can't ever seem to hold onto things I don't think I'll use for long. Purging my doll stuff regularly feels great. Plus it's nice when I can make room for new stuff. Although, this purge was for very different reasons, as most of you already know, this purge was done in the spirit of giving. <3
So, after spending most of my week preparing the above box, I readied a doll for a game that we'll be playing at the party tomorrow called "Doll Story." I think that might be an unofficial name for it. Please correct me if I have it wrong. Anyway, we each bring a dressed doll in nice condition that we don't mind parting with. Someone reads a Barbie story, and every time the word "Barbie" is read you pass the doll to the person next to you (not sure if it is passed clock wise or counter clock wise). Whichever doll you're holding when the story ends is the doll you get to keep. :) I had a naked reproduction doll lying around in plastic for over a year. I made her a skirt and a top, and decided she would be my "doll story" doll.
Here she is...
Not what I consider my best work, but at least she isn't naked.
The skirt is actually from a relatively simple pattern I made.
I've been doing that quite a bit lately. The sewing bug has bit me.
Next, we are each supposed to bring some sort of food for everyone, and I volunteered to make my Mamaw's amazing Pineapple upside down cake. I make it every year during Thanksgiving and Christmas in her memory. <3 It turned out beautiful. I sprinkled some extra love into it (brown sugar). I do cook, but it isn't my favorite activity. No Betty Crocker over here. ;P
Look yummy? :)
Last, but not least, I got these two gals dressed for Show and Tell...
I know you've seen Kiko and Florence, but the girls at doll club haven't.
Miss Florence (on the right) is rocking another dress from the very talented Joan of Joan's emporium on eBay. It's my favorite dress so far. The green one Sienna wore in episode 13 is a close second! :D
That covers doll meeting, now onto a new purchase that I mentioned in my last post.
He is Hypnotic Francisco. <3
This handsome fella arrived earlier in the week, and will be appearing in Doll Drama soon. ;)
He's already made a friend.
Pickles, (my cat) and Eli. So cute! And no, I do not generally let Pickles snuggle with my dolls, but they just kinda bonded. My sweet boys. Although, I think Eli's sweetness ends here. *hint* ;)
Here is a better shot of just Eli..
*drool* Eh ehm...I had hoped to have a character profile prepared for him, but I haven't made it that far yet. More than likely he will have one next week, and don't worry I will blog about it when it is posted. :)
More exciting news...Nahla has a mom and dad!! Yay!!! I have been working on finding the perfect family members for her. I still need her oldest sister, her brother, and their Aunt (Nahla's mom's sister). Stay tuned this is going to get confusing!!! Haha! ;)
Vanessa, these dolls are gonna be so down for that therapy session. These dolls are about to spiral into being even more out of control.....*rips out hair and laughs wildly*
Um, maybe I need some therapy too...? :D
I present Nahla and Chandra's mom and dad...
How cute are they? :)
Still making final decisions on their names. If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment! I love suggestions. ;)
Oh, and FINALLY...I updated the mall again.
The twins have been working at 'Fire and Ice Fever' for a few weeks now.
They seem fascinated by their latest customer. I wonder why... :)
^ Chandra at work.
Again, sorry about the photo quality being absolute crap.
I was in a rush, but you get the idea.
Well, that's all for now. I will more than likely post a blog about how doll meeting/party goes sometime this coming week. Oh and Persephone's sister should be making her debut as well. ;)
Play on, and have a STELLAR weekend!
Thank you for reading all of my insane ramblings.
You're the best! <3
