The Biggest Egg

Blythe a Day on Flickr 3/25/16

Shy little April was quite overwhelmed by all the attention she received after she found the enormous Grand Prize Egg at the Easter Egg Hunt.  Luckily, she has her sisters nearby for moral support--and to help her carry the egg home, since it is almost as big as she is!

The placement of the dolls, and the camera angle for this photo resulted in April looking much smaller than the two middies beside her. Weird!

Easter Bunny

Blythe a Day on Flickr 3/24/16

At the Easter Egg Hunt, little June encounters the real Easter Bunny--and she's pleasantly surprised to see that she's a girl!

My Melody is still in her stock outfit (I got her on Valentine's Day!) But I love it on her and it really works for Easter--maybe she should have been an Easter gift! The Middie is Francoise Ananassa.

Favorite Colors

Blythe a Day on Flickr, 3/23/16

Jubilee has become quite well known as a portrait painter. When asked what are her favorite colors, she always replies, "All of them!"

All of the little portraits in this photo are ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) made by my friend and fellow Blythe enthusiast, Sara Ricer ( mountains and clouds ). We traded ATC's about a year ago. I love her colorful style!

Jubilee (with her back to the camera) is Simply Thumpty Thump. Her subject is Heidi, aka Cousin Olivia.

Who like peppermint?

This was a recent custom-order panty. I'm quite pleased with how realistic the peppermint looks; my customer is pleased with it too--yay! I'm always open to ideas for custom panty embroidery designs, and the amazing thing is, I don't charge extra for these special orders!

This pretty doll is a Precocious Candy's Mushroom Blythe. I love her fiery red hair.

Blue Bear

I belong to a group on Facebook called "Blythe Pay it Forward", and I recently won a giveaway there--yay!  The prize is this cute blue teddy bear made by Maria van Bruggen, aka Blythe Fairy Tales on Etsy.  Maisy quickly grabbed him before any of the other girls had a chance. Thank you, Maria!

She was still clutching him when she fell asleep.

Maisy is my Spright Beauty Blythe doll. She is one of the few stock Blythe dolls who have "sleep eyes"...she has an extra string that you pull to make her eyelids stay closed.

Pot of Gold

Jubilee discovered the legendary Pot of Gold right in her own backyard! But when she tried to keep it a secret, she came face-to-face with the truth: she is a terrible liar.

Feather Collection

Blythe a Day on Flickr, 3/4/16

Tess, a budding ornithologist, adds another wild bird feather to her collection. Every time she goes outside for a walk, she finds something the birds have left for her: a feather, an eggshell, and sometimes even a nest!

Tess is my Prima Dolly Peony Blythe doll.

An ornithologist is a type of zoologist who focuses on birds. If you want to know anything about our fine feathered friends, consult an ornithologist.
Having a birdbath in your backyard doesn't make you an ornithologist. An ornithologist is someone who studies ornithology — the branch of science devoted to birds. Ornithologists study every aspect of birds, including bird songs, flight patterns, physical appearance, and migration patterns. Birds are genetically related to dinosaurs, which is something else an ornithologist might study.

Something that makes you happy

There's nothing that makes us happier around here than BIRTHDAYS and CAKE!! (I also like to have a good photo to post on friends' walls on Facebook when it's their birthday...and I don't want to use the same one over and this was a good theme to use for my own purpose!)

Read to a Child

Dr. Seuss

I love it when I find a quote that is perfect for a photo I want to make! In this case, for the theme "Dr. Seuss", I knew I wanted to print out a small image of a book for a prop, and when I was googling "Dr. Seuss," this great quote popped up. I already had this perfectly Seuss-ian dress that I made last year (using fabrics that are actually from a Dr. Seuss-inspired collection) for this same theme--March 2nd is Theodor Seuss Geisel/Dr. Seuss's birthday, so it's no surprise that it appeared on the list of themes again this March!--and the whole picture came together in my mind. And then it came together in reality!
