Chikins!


Joy has discovered that if she lies perfectly still, the wild wubba chikins' curiosity will overcome their timidity, and they will approach her. If everything goes according to plan, she will have a flock of pet chikins by the end of the month. 



Just in case you don't know, wubba chikins are a "thing" in the Blythe doll community, and it was started by one woman, Juliet Waldon, who took pictures of her dolls with them, and mailed one free to anyone who asked. There is a whole Flickr group dedicated to Blythe and chikins, with Wednesday being proclaimed "Wubba Wednesday". Really! To take a look at this group, click HERE.

Joy is my My Melody Blythe doll.

Mustache Monday


Drink up! Milk is good for your body!

(This has been a paid endorsement.)




Paisley's acting career is starting to take off...the National Dairy Counsel has chosen her for their spokesperson! It's a good thing she likes milk...she must have swallowed a gallon of it, trying to get her milk mustache just right.

Read a Book


Does Zelda read because she's smart? Or is she smart because she reads?


Zelda is my Blythe Adores Anna Sui doll.

Cinema Princess Got Her Horse

For Cecilia, it was love at first sight. 
For Maximus, it was all about the carrot. 



This is Cinema Princess, wearing her stock riding outfit, which is surprisingly detailed and complete. Since she came with a riding outfit, she needed a horse, and I really like this one, which I found at WalMart...he is Maximus from the animated movie Tangled. I remember watching that movie and thinking that the horse was the best character, and I guess the toy manufacturers must have agreed.  He was more interesting-looking than the Barbie horse on a nearby shelf. He has a gorgeous long mane and tail with sparkly threads in them, as well as a saddle and bridle. Oh, and yes, he did come with that carrot!

Busch Gardens Williamsburg


Hi, it's me, Jubilee. I went to the theme park this week...Busch Gardens is just a short drive from my house. (Leslie drove me, of course.) Here I am, trying to decide if I will ride that roller coaster or not. It turned out, not! It's a fun place to go, even if you don't ride the rides. There's lots to see, and if you're hungry you can get Dippin' Dots like I did!

Sorry I look a little blurry here; Leslie was trying to hold too many things in her hands at once and this is the best she could do.

Swap Package for Angie


I've been a Facebook friend of Angie Coppi for quite a while...almost two years, I think. She is a life-long quilter, and since getting into Blythe, she has been making quilt and pillow sets on a small scale for dolls. Last summer we decided to do a swap: she would make me a quilt set in colors of my choosing, and I would make some clothes for her girls. We both have been busy with other things and agreed to take our time with our packages. I received Angie's package last week; I posted pictures of the wonderful pink and turquoise bedding she sent me HERE .

I'm happy to say that I also finished my package for her! In addition to a couple of things I sent her before Christmas as a sort of down payment on my swap, I sent her the four outfits below. The blue dress is for her newest girl, who didn't have a personalized dress from me yet. The black outfit is a sleeveless dress with a bolero jacket and matching bag. The yellow dress is made from the long-sleeve pattern I drafted to make Angie a white dress for a St. Lucia picture over a year ago...this dress has a matching knitted vest and a felt shoulder bag, which is something NEW! I'm quite excited about this bag, and the one that goes with the green dress, because I love working with felt and I think these bags look great. I intend to make more, to sell in my Etsy shop either separately or as part of outfits like these. Last but not least, the green dress is my standard sleeveless dress made from three coordinated fabrics, paired with a short-sleeved cardigan. I realized after I took this picture that you can't tell that the sweater is short-sleeved, so I took another picture to show it off better, which you will find below.

Angie has just received this package, and she reports that she and her girls are very happy with everything!
